He might actually be peeing himself right there due to the sounds of grinding metal...

iron butt bonus

there is always several bonuses at or around the dragon or nearby comunities and has been since the late 80's.that set up is tipocal of most bikes in the 11day 11,000 plus mile rally. for the last several years it has taken 14,000 or more miles to win the 11 day rally. route plannig and time management are the keys to a good finish in these events.the bikes are restricted to a 11.5 gallon fuel load and an auxillary fuel cell is a must. a competive iron butt bike is very simmilar to a dakar or baja racer set up for street rallys.this is one I rode in several rallys from 2005 to present day.

Look at the big ass disks on the rear wheels, that thing doesn't really need a front brake at all.
