So I bought a new bike to race Wildwood on....

Rode with out a bashplate so was careful and avoided some spots.

Prologue should not be too hard, just slow. And I didn't do a big drop off. Got down the balance beams easy though. Love the low seat height.

Got up most things, Beta rock garden is straight forward. The expert line up switchback will be slow and will use lots of bashplate. But I lifted it up one section that I was stuck on and it was easy to do. even got up HP Hill.

Husky Hill and Step Up will be the real problem. Will swap out the trials tyre for a knobby once I get my new modified swingarm in 2 weeks. That should give me drive on those short run ups.

Had a few things stop me, rear spring needs to be harder. Will raise the backend for ground clearance. Jetting was ok, but will muck around with it. No powervlave motor is just a little sluggish off the bottom.

The clutch held up, but I have a 'new to me' complete clutch coming.

Lots of air in those little forks before you try that.

Got some speed adjusters for those drum brakes, nothing worse than getting to a corner and pulling the front lever in till it hits the grip but you aren't slowing down enough.

The flywheel is the brake. Low first gear works on the big down hills. The drums are just for looks.

Good H1. But it is already pulled apart again to make some more mods.
