not sure if this helps any:this is an interesting video. unfortunately where I live there isn't any place to ride off road. the state forest near me all have signs prohibiting off road riding, even though I have seen and heard atv's and dirt bikes on these trails. there is however a state forest a little distance from me that allows hunting, and the roads in that area aren't maintained. might try my luck there. In the meantime have to wait to get my bike back from the shop. btw, that bike sounds like an angry bee!
