Yeah.... I think he was in over his head and it was a rough ride. The trail seemed a bit rough to me too. A lot of loose talus and rock. I pulled over to let him pass and he got in the throttle and must have bounced off a rock and the bike just tossed him. I'm not sure why he wanted to throttle so hard through there? His bike and the heels of his boots smacked my fender and he hit the ground pretty hard. I jumped out to help because I though he was hurt. He fell a few more times trying to ride away. Just too much wrist twisting for that kind of terrain.

What was the guy riding that he was having such a hard time on the trail?

Honda 650, I think. Looked brand new. Also looked like it weighed a ton.

An XR650 is truly a handful on those boulders. AMHIK. A KDX220, not so much. Bah-RINGdingdingding...

Stan, sounds like a good opportunity to buy some pizza and have a club 'rebuild a 100 front diff' party. It's how I did my first R&P (for Squishy's truck) and I learned a lot.

And SAVED a lot too.

I have some tools (inch lb. torque wrench, press) you would need that you are welcome to borrow. Never done a 100 front diff but SOMEone has. Maybe even Squishy.

[edit] wish I could have gone along, looks like fun. Ah, well, too busy building a tack shed, running underground plumbing and wiring...
