It took a while for me to put this up, but here it is. I had a great time trying out everything about my CR. I went over a jump for the first time. The jump there was about 15 almost vertical feet without a landing area. This isn't the kind of jump you want to learn on. I couldn't get the hang of throttle control on the face, so I usually landed in an endo or wheelie. There was a little pond there that was fun to go (and roost) through. The trails were very hard for me to get used to. I had trouble staying in the powerband. I usually kept it in first at loww rpms. We had a couple of of creek crossings that I had more problems with. Our first river was about two feet high and I let my bike bog down and die in the middle of it. I found out that boots don't stay waterproof when they are completely submerged. I had a great ride and I can't wait to do it again.
