Well, you just have to see my "technique". It involves velocity and mucho mass. Works well 9/10 times and only takes one bike and everybody else shoots the gaps. Usually 2 to 4 bikes can get thru. The tenth time is when I hit the gate that's made from 3/4" steel plate and leaf springs from a one-ton truck (or, even worse, the time I found one that was "locked").
It ain't real pretty to watch. Most especially from my seat. Then I have to employ my secondary technique which consists of bull-dozing it open leaving my clutch smelling like a cat on fire. Yeah. Big fun. lol
BTW, around here we call the road "Bumpgate Road". It's a mainstay at the RTB Rally.
