Fast desert riding

Thought that you guys with trees () would like to see what going fast in the desert looks like.

Here's a helmet cam of the #2 open expert (not me ha) in a race near my house. 35 mile lap and he does it in about 40 minutes! 50+ mph average speed so he's probably hitting 80+ at times! The camera is a little shakey but you'll get the idea!

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Cor 2:9

I grew up in 29 Palms. I sure miss open desert riding like that.
I've gotten to 70ish a few times in the desert on my KLR, but only on very open / nearly flat areas, as seen in my vid (sig).
/sigh. I sure want to get a DRZ or something now. . . Thanks for posting that.
