840 Climbing Hills

Went on a trail ride for the first time since my 840 build, and the bike really performed. Could really feel it on the hills... Feels like it will climb anything now Was at a play area and after I got up enough courage to try the first bad hill and realized what it would do then I did them all. One hill was so bad Motorcycles were recking on it. Here are some videos of the 840 in action. Remember videos dont do hills any justice. All I can say is the hills were almost straight up and down. Only a few motorcycles and sport atvs have ever made it up motorcycle hill acording to the locals.. I would be willing to bet I am the only sidexside that has ever made it

Yeah, I wasnt in charge of the camera. But there was a stretch there were my adrenaline was pumping, I wish he would have kept the camera rolling. I got airborne on some good hills over and over until I came off my adrenaline high. Fun stuff.

Nahh, he ran into a few snags with his cage. Couldnt make it. I will probably be in his shoes next week. I discovered during the ride my rear brakes were shot. I guess those simulated dyno runs on jack stands during jetting finished them off

Oh, by the way my bike hit 73mph on the road. All I have is a shimmed primary cover. This was with 200lb of gear in the bed and a two hundred pound passenger that was scared to death
