So I got a PM that this photo is a blatant fake... Anyone object to it being on the home page?

That is a great, great shot. I've tried to use it before but couldn't get it clear enough when it was bigger. Maybe I'm too picky about that.

Talking 4 bikes left... none returned!

I'd like to nominate this one, by sandiegoland... even though he says there's better ones of the same choppa ride yet to come




ride report is forthcoming, I hope, but for now the story is in the stuck bike thread over in the west forum.

The logs on the bridge are pretty big, maybe 4-5ft around. The log I am on is the center of the bridge and really the only one that is good to ride on. I was only going 2-4 mph. The entry and exit was smooth dirt right to the top of the log, only a couple inch step for the entry.

The guy that took the picture was on a KTM640.

If it's a fake, it's dead-representative of that storm, though!



(Though I guess I'm not sure what precedent that would set for FP pics.?.)

I agree 100% on both points. It's a fun photo from a great thread (although it's not viewable currently there). I doctor up photos constantly to make them a more accurate representation.

I just wanted to give Baldy a heads up, but he really doesn't need my help in this area. I feel like an ass for even pointing it out and I apologize to Bigbird.
