The kenso trails are basically split up into two sections:
– hilly wooded trails area
– open sand pit area
In the open sand pit area there are some sandy hills to climb and a huge oval track, but the main cool thing is an existing tabletop jump which was a total piece of shit. Maybe it was good at one point, but it’s so beaten down now. The take off was basically rolled over so there was inverse curve to it, and the landing was the same way. Inverse curve and too steep. I doubt even a modern dirt bike could’ve jumped it as it was. It was also 25′ to clear it.
After trying to jump it a bunch it was obvious it needed some work, so Adam and I went down there with some shovels and fixed it up. The take off now has an actual lip, and the landing is 5′ closer and mellower. So it’s a 20′ total gap.
For us on a 175… Middle of 3rd gear to clear it.
Oh, and we made a 2nd little jump after the 1st which will be fun once we make the take off bigger.

suck it Alex, more old bike shit… I’ve been really interested in the KZ750’s lately. They definitely do not get the same attention as the CB’s or KZ900/1000’s but have a lot to offer and have a good base for modifying. It’s a basically a bored out KZ650 with better cams and other performance modifications […]
Whats that blue one? an IT?
Yea… IT 400.
It’s fast as shit.
Sick, those things are cool. I’m headed to Virginia today to pick up a 1968 Yamaha DT1. Super stoked.
Damn Carson, you have quite the line up now. How’s the 400 and 360 you picked up last year (if i remember correctly)
I’ve got a handful now Adam. I actually never picked up that 360 last year, I bought my BMW 2002 instead, but my buddy picked up the 400, I’ll have to send you some pics of it. Its mega clean.
I have a 1978 DT175 that I will be putting together real soon. I may have to go and check out this riding spot.
Man what a pisser. I’m super jelly. I am picking up what you’re laying down, man!
