Montana dirt biking – Blue Mountain
Colin showed us some dual sport trails that branch off of Blue Mountain, which is just south of Missoula. About 4 hours of dual/single track up and over a mountain which popped us out at The Jack Saloon, just south of Lolo MT.
Ton of fun. Loose rocks are difficult on the XR650l. Especially steep downhill loose rocks. Plenty of spots where I had to just lock up the rear wheel and let the XR’s weight slide me down the rocky decline.
Pics and vid don’t do it justice. Trails were steep as shit, with insane views. Honestly, it was some of the more challenging riding i’ve done. The XR was a champ, but heavy big bike made it pretty tough.
