What do you well season riders do when you get to a steep washed out riverbed of a road heading up in to the high county? Do you carefully ride the clutch over each watermelon sized rock with your feet stabilizing you, or do you blast up in second gear with momentum providing stability? If you do the latter, how often have you been thrown off your bike and smashed in to the ground at high speed? I am trying to work up the nerve to blast up our steep coastal rides but I lost my sense of immortality a long time ago! Now this new 450 is high off the ground for keeping the feet down. Thanks.
