Eddie tried to get me out dirtybiking a month or so back and without fail a tranny gave way. Fast forward a few days back and good things came to fruition regardless of rain in Seattle and Snoqualmie snow. We were up early and out on the trails in what I regard as one of the most beautiful spots in the state. Who knew there are some sand dunes down there too... my SR and the 19x2.75 inch avon speedmaster cut through the sand and made it over the volcanic rock up through 3rd gear. I finally got the rear wheel out and flat tracked a bit for good measure. The way the torque comes on is so predictable. Its pretty cool to point to a spot off in the distance and get there in 5x the time it would take to run.
