    hill climbs

    My stock street legal XT225 went over this hill no problem. Because I had to begin directly from the base of the hill, I had to ride it in 1st. Had to slip the clutch a time or two. But if I’m riding in the woods and have some momentum, I usually take a hill in 2nd. The biggest thing I had to get past was thinking too much about it, I would put so much thought into an obstacle; I would convince myself I couldn’t do it. Check out the hill, find your line, and go, your instincts will kick in. I was not comfortable standing until I had more experience, but what ever you do get your weight over the front of the bike. http://www.nashvillenationalhillclimb.com/05ew03.jpg
