Nice bike. Keep it between the ditches from now on, mkay?

One of my buds, from a few weeks ago in Charlotte NC. The trail went into the creek bed, downstream a few hundred feet, and then a very sharp left out of the creek bed...

He missed the left...



Was doing awesome until the bottom dropped out of the creek bed...

Hand-cranking the engine over a few times with water shooting out the spark plug bore had it purring again in no time...

I guess the thread starter should pony up every once in awhile huh?

My buddy Pat's (n2moto) bike on a ride last winter. We made it to our destination but it was a biotch. Slabbed home.

Third times a charm


Came up a little short on this road gap the third time around on the ole MTB. Broke both wrists, separated shoulder, and lots of rash. I'm standing on the top of the transition(landing), you can see entry on right. Bike didn't even get scratched. Doh!

The jeep tracks just stopped a little farther on up. This was on Imogene pass from the Telluride side. That was very close to the top. We did black bear pass and there was snow on the top. It was deep on the peak. We had to turn around and go all the way back down. The guy roosting on the KDX blew it up on the highway to Olfer. We did that pass in the dark. The bike in front of me was 2 up with the KDX rider. The next morning I didn't remember Olfer pass having so many rocks The stock headlight on a KTM sucks for night riding. Ended up staying in Silverton for the night and left the KDX in Olfer with a dude who had a bike in his yard. Came back the next day with a truck to get it. We did some nice single track that day onto the cabin.

That's not water, it's the gooeyest, thickest bike trapping mud I've ever seen. I was leading and has buzzed right over the top of this spot seconds before- no problem.

It took three of us two hours to get this bike out. Burned out the clutch in the process.
