Some video from Colorado riding - July 24, 2013, 11:04 PM

Garabaldi Gulch Trail - One single climb up, takes about 4 minutes on a 300cc two stroke bike.

It's worth watching in HD. YouTube was processing it and it should be available soon....

That does look like fun. Maybe some day.

I thought it was interesting how mellow a pace Harris was leading the group at out at taskers (I was only with him on peters mill though, rode with Dave C and Jim G on the other side later in the day). Do you guys splinter up a lot?

Harris's bike is not built for speed. And he's more into the trip and just getting there. The skill levels vary quite a lot. Some rides during the week are more mellow. But we usually have groups of like-skilled riders that tend to stick together. Harris runs the "B" group. Brian Summers was leading "C" as this year we had several beginner riders and new to dirt. I run in the "A" group who pretty much tackle anything possible, and a few things that aren't. I'll post up the SOB Hill video later.

Running up Hall Valley

Riders in the video:

Jim Gaal - blick/white outfit, first rider I come on.
Krishna Pribadi - Black/yellow, second rider
Joe Wooten - Grey/black, Lead rider. I catch him and settle in behind to let him lead. He set a fun pace that we could keep running for quite a while.

Me or the bike? I'm still a wheezing fat bastard with asthma. So yes for me.

For the bikes we all have to re-jet. Your jetting generally changes about every 3,000 feet or so. Figure at the 9,000-14,000 range that we are riding in you only get maybe 60% of the oxygen at sea level. I drop 2 main jet sizes. It's still rich when we go up to the 14K range, but I can deal with it and just ham fist the throttle a bit more.

Day 1 - SOB Hill going down.

And just for reference, the video doesn't really capture how steep the downhill angle is.

I don't know. I've seen some very fast guys on older KDXs. You don't see them around too many any more but they can be ridden very quickly. The rider is still the biggest part of the equation off road. I can definitely appreciate Steve's view on the trip though. It's just different from my own.

That sounds good, maybe some day. It does look awesome.

I was not convinced at all as I've never heard anything but the squeeze technique and can feel the positive impact of it in my riding but I thought it was interesting nonetheless...

Here is a bit of the riding today. We ended up doing about 80 miles of difficult and fast offroad riding.

Maybe I'll post the video of me passing Joe. Or of Joe wrecking.
