That's a bummer. Exploring mines is fun!

Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye...

Man, there is all sorts of shit that can go wrong down there - carbon monoxide buildup, combustible gas buildup (which the bike has a good chance of igniting).
I guess being a drift mine rather than a vertical haulage mine, youre not that deep... so perhaps the risk of those is lower...

Too skeery for me

Had Iker as a visitor for 2 days and he is like a duracell bunny with a fresh battery.

First evening we went out in the pooring rain to search for some gravel roads ...the kind i prefer but he didn't like them, to long and straight and its maybe true with 2 persons its alot easier to push the limits and speeds close to 190 km/h might end bad eventually.

Next day it didn't rain as much. And we went looking for some twistier roads, mainly sand roads and we also found some sand climbs.





Sorry for the low quality its filmed with my cell phone a W800i at least the sound turned out better then expected.

Have another angle of it also but he didn't want me to post it cause he failed that try he probably dont want me to write about it either ...soooorry.

But i just think it shows just how good he is he just backed the bike all the way down and gave it another go in the loosened up sand. And from the little experiense i have dont make it any easier. If requested ill post that movie anyway.

Hey Darren. Nice vid. You're just down the road from my mum's house in Bedford, where I grew up.

Thanks James

Thanks very much. Bedford is not far from me, just the other side of the M1 motorway.

Wow! Austrailia is awsome! Great places to ride, like in Greenpat's vid, and super-safe places to work! If they'd let you explore abandon mines and listen to better music, it'd be paradise!

Ever wonder where baby powder comes from? Owens Valley, Califonia.
