When you get out of jail,, try posting some pic of some trail, savant.

 

I ride laps around the prison yard...  more aggressive terrain than your road.

I’ve ridden Painted Gorge.  Once.  Nothing special, certainly not worth the drive from when I lived in North County.

Its simple Darrin...  Ride whatever you want, where you want...  I don't begrudge you your hillbilly nature...  in fact, I embrace my own....  but If you pull the nfg routine talking all tuff-guy then post whimpy pics people are gonna call you out...  almost every old &%$#@!er in here has spent time in Ocotillo Salt Flats and owned an XR or three in their lifetime. 

You can pretend to be a baddass all day long...  just dont expect others to pretend for you.

In regards to the ‘Ridge of Death’ that requires confidence and commitment more than it requires skill or ability.   Some of us have difficulty wrapping our heads around exactly how much our bikes can do.

That’s true.  The only real skill is keeping the front wheel exactly where it need to be.  At one spot, it’s only about 8” wide.  A mistake can be costly.  It’s a long way down.

Hard to have that confidence when you lack the skill.

By the way that pic does not show the narrow downhill with drop offs on both sides before you get to what is shown.

  I know this.  And I’m not trying to say that commitment and confidence are not a big deal .

No energy at all...  I just typo Darrin into Google and poof, like magic the perfect meme appears.

Here is a better photo showing the beginning of the decent of the downhill Alan is referencing.
