Top of Trail 4
I am stopped for a photo above a descent when I see a headlight bouncing my way. I ease my way down and come aside a guy on a blue and orange KTM 950. Sweet. Another big bike rider. We each cut our engines.
“I wondered how those would do on these trails,” he says, referring to my 1290.
“Pretty good,” I say. “Do you want to take it up the trail a bit, give it a try?”
“Oh, no,” he answers quickly. “I fall down a lot.”
“Are you coming up from the parking lot?” I ask.
“No. I think there are some rough sections down that way,” he explains. “Is that where you’re going?”
“Yeah, I think so.”
We wish each other well as we revive our machines.
