That looks exactly like the type of offroad riding I want to try. I have the bike (that needs some repairs).... where is this?

Shotgun Creek, south of Brownsville. I usually end up there because it's close to home and I have a friend in Eugene I like to ride with.

Yours is a YZ 250, right? My friend in the video was on an '05 YZ 250 that day. He usually brings his YZF450.

What all does yours need repaired?

Its a 1994 YZ 250... needs: transmission output shaft realign such that the oil seal on the gear is tight. Right now, the main nut holding the sprocket on hits the splines before it holds the sprocket down. Bad for splines too.
I have replaced the sprocket and all the sealing bits thinking those were just worn... but nope. A talk with Schmidt314 revealed that these have an adjustment to them. Just need to haul it in to him and get it done.
Then I need a new muffler that is noise rated for public grounds.
Also need to retap the oil view port as it stripped and leaks.
A few more minor tweaks and I should be good to go.

But I don't have a truck/trailer to transport it right now either.

Got it. I put a FMF Turbinecore 2 on mine because the stock muffler wasn't spark arrested. Not overly loud.
