If the route allows it, I'd love to bring the Seca back for another shot at some dirty riding now that the electrics are sorted (I've been doing it as my daily, and also took a ~700 mile highway trip). How "technical" is "technical"? Most of what I see in the posted video looks ridable to me, barring the obstacle (rail track) crossings, but I gather that was your "begginer" ride.

The first half is primarily off road. There are 3 RR crossings. The second half will be 95% asphalt, just a few curb hops.

BIf you wanted to meet us on Theodore Wirth at noon. I could make a stop there. All the dirt will be over by then.

But then what's the point? Dirt doesn't worry me, I did maybe 3 hours worth of dirt / sand roads in NE on memorial day weekend, at speeds ranging up to 50. The RR crossings are the problem. Its just to heavy and low for that shit.

I should probably just forget the dirt though, and put together a trip to some downriver twisties. :)

Funny thing is, now I'm looking at a cheap old trials bike....

Do it! It will definitely up your off-road game. Just be aware that cheap and old usually means the clutch does not work properly. Really learning trials requires that the clutch works well because you are constantly 1-fingering the lever.
