You have far better suspension, gear reduction, 4 inch taller tires, a longer wheelbase and a power commander. Your machine is probably the best and most capable out of the entire group.

Your machine does everything much easier than mine, as it should and a bent tie rod is irrelevant lol.

Few people even attempted to climb v rock. I think you and I are the only ones that climbed both sides.

Go ahead and tell them how easily and slowly I was able to crawl and not beat the hell out of my machine. Sure you made it but it sounded terrible at WOT!! At least I didn’t bend a tie rod.

Oh, yeah...I climbed a place at V rock that you did not. On the lower side you went around the right which look easier than the much steeper left side that I went up.

But the lumber wagon life is the real life, how else you gonna know there is a bump in the road if you can't feel it! I understand the feeling with my all original rear shocks haha. But yeah with a stock cage you probably be in bad condition. Put on the upside when you were at the hospital none of us would take your front axles
Lol this gave me a good laugh.

I was thinking really hard about going up slate rock. The first part it was crawling right up but the last 30 ft were going to be the toughest. There was a lot of loose rock. I agree with Joey I think you need some good momentum to get over the top. I don't know if I would have made it, i had decent odds but I wasn't ready to bet my life on that factory Honda cage. In my younger and dumber days I probably would have tried it. I wonder if any of the videos will surface.... It is steep walking up it and it feels REALLY steep when you're backing down it lol

Yeah... too early in the trip to try it. Day 1 vs day 5 is a different story!

Didnt hit Tackett but would like to soon tho with the Talon it looks like more of what our mtn riding is here
I will say there are a few tight trails there - like I thought we might have to open a route up for the pioneers 1000-5 - the trail where @Kilo427 broke his first Tie rod ball joint was one that came to mind - it was a blue trail that went to the bottom of No business hallow. THe Talon X would be fine But the R would need to avoid that trail.

it is a fun places I definitely recommend it - just know you are going to get some trail hickies riding in that area.

I'd like to see it we put the R's through some tight stuff here in mid tn
Everything we rode at Takeover was wide open compared to the trails we ride across the field from my house

Heck I had my R on its side the day i got it its got a few scratches LOL

I’m pretty sure someone may have said over the radio.. “who the f*** is leading this group, CP?” on several occasions.
Exactly
@CumminsPusher - I was channeling you as I was in lead down that trail - I just hope the rest of the group appreciated the spiders that I cleared out for them.

Pretty sure it is the blue trail off of the red Wolfpen Holler to the right of the black "No Business" trail

If you don’t mind rubbing trees and limbs you can make it. But it’s not a fast trail.
