Off road whiners

It's time for the "guys" who whine about riding off road to suck it up a bit. Carrie is 4'11" of piss and sunshine who has the dual sport bug bad. On a ttr125 she can barely touch on both sides. For her first time on the trails she was invited by MGorman to come to Crow Canyon, an ATV and motorcycle park in Eastern Ohio.
I found out the night before I didn't have to work Friday so on an impulse loaded up the YX426 to go play also. We were amazed how fast she was improving and none of the usual frustration new riders get at falling, stalling and not understanding.
I'm telling you there are a lot of big burley men on KLR's I hope see this video so they stop whining about there troubles off road!

Wow! She did fantastic! I can't even imagine learning to ride in mud, take her back out there on a dry day and she'll go pfffft, nothing to this stuff!
I'm also thinking she had pretty good teachers though, and that helped a lot to keep the frustration levels down. Seriously looks like a lot of fun, my hats off to Carrie, she did great!

Way to go Carrie!!! I need to find a girl like her!

650Stew is right, with her learning on a greasy trail, everything else will be easy!

I copied some of your comments to her face book page, thanks for the kind words as I know she'll love to hear them. :-)


For those wanting to see some more of Crow Canyon...
