But I do like the sky/earth/sky part of you rolling down the hill.

First try this.

Second look at the wide trails you had. How can you screw that up?

Yea the lay the bike down when you realize you ain't making it method is much more preferable to the dirt sky dirt sky dirt sky method


There is no video proof, but I totally high sided myself back down the trail while turning around. I imagine it was very entertaining to witness. I had the bike 90 degrees to the trail and went to jump back on. Got on the bike but felt myself going over so threw my body in the uphill direction in an attempt to avoid the inevitable. I was so far over I had my hands on the ground and there was nothing to grab and it flung me over the top

Ah, I didn't realize the back tire kicked over so much. Not a steady throttle at all. Dang... Joe's run was so much better overall and, in particular, throttle-wise. I guess that's one thing the little bike teaches you.

You didn't record your best run, Mike?

Yea I wish I had that on video. Would have been priceless! What are friends for if not to laugh at your falls!

That's too bad. This is one case where the videos have some real value for me. I've been thinking that being tentative with the throttle on significant hills was one of my problems and this really bears that out. It's worse than I realized, at least in this case. I'm sure both you and Joe were going into the turn on a steady throttle on your better runs.

It's kinda rare to get video of yourself riding, and when you do see it you realize how many bad habits you have

Yeah, if you combined Mike's notion of actually practicing instead of just riding with recording the practice you might get somewhere. Of course, like taking the dirtwise class, you have to apply what you learn (I'm at least trying to stand up most of the time and stay in the attack position more).

I'm glad I ain't the only one having trouble getting up hills with heavy leaf cover over damp loamy soil. They gave me fits Sunday. Of course it didn't help to watch Allen from DSA motor up them without issue on a DR-Z with a spent rear tire... LOL.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Damp loamy soil would've been fine, I think, if that's all it was on this particular hill. It was the loose rocks and roots that the leaves were covering that were the real issue with this one though.

Would it be dumb to bring an old trials bike out to the next ride out there? I've got a '76 TY250 that I'm itching to get out for something other than a trials event. If it's not too sloppy I think it should be ok as long as someone's willing to hang back at the turns so I don't get lost.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be putting around trying to keep my feet off the ground, I just won't be railing through the place trying to keep up. If I still had a dirtbike I'd just bring that out.
