Hero dirt is the exact right consistency and moisture that almost no wrong can be done because traction is unbelievably good. One can ride like a deranged hero and the biggest risk is hurting your face from grinning too hard and too long.
Best example for me was '03 in Tahoe. We had three days of perfect light soaking rain and when it ended we waited 48 hours and went and did Armstrong/Toads. The Star Wars section on Toads was off the chart. Those big moto built berms that will normally blow out were solid and perfectly tacky. Near handlebar dragging warping was done.
