I wonder if a better prepared Big with a better rider (no offense here) would have made it further? It kinda made me sad that he had to quit.
thats a great story. i guess in the end its just a question of power to weight ratio. the big is to heavy for 50hp. and after all its basically a road bike with limited off road capabilities. more power (and cooling) and a tuned suspension would help heaps here.
