GoPro from racing my XR650L: Narrated! (A must watch for thumper fans)

Some background: This year our series introduced a new Saturday class called "Pre Modern" which is for bikes that are 20 years old. The first 20 year old bike I could get my hands on was a 1994 XR650L. The only modifications were a big tank, aftermarket rear fender and headlamp, and FMF silencer. I added flexx bars myself as I have done with every bike. The rear tire is a balding terraflex and the front is some crappy bald michelin. There are no engine mods at all.



Here is some video of me racing Saturday. It is in 3 parts that are about 10 minutes each.

Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiewordmXgE

Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h8nEOY2B0s

Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mK8JVf2f6xM

This is exactly what I am thinking while I'm racing it. I am SO impressed at the things it is holding up to. The first race of the season was at gatorback cycle park and I hit every jump there on it, plus sailing it out about 70 feet and flat landing it after the finish line jump. I wish there were more pictures of it. And unfortunately I had my gopgo on the narrow setting so the video was just it pointed at the ground.

I have to say I'm fairly new to dirt and just learning my WR450, this is truly inspirational to watch. Throwing that big bastard around like a 250, amazing!!!

Really enjoyed watching you work.
