That thing cost more than a couple actual bikes I've bought over the years! Just wish I could ride like that little dude. Wonder if I can get my GS back up off the ground by simply goosing the rear tire like that? That would be way cool.

This is my brother's winter tire for trail riding in New England. 1/4" Tapcon concrete bolts bolted through the knobs.

Traction, baby.

There are two "Stages" to the Erzberg event. The second part is the extreme hillclimb most of us are familiar with.

The First part is the "Iron Road Prolog", consisting of a long hillclimb up from the bottom of the quarry, on smooth dirt roads. This part is usually contested by riders on HP2's, SuperEnduros and the like.

Not sure how Swiss R1 Boy did.

Edit: here it is: http://www.motorradreporter.at/jart/...cs/Strasse.pdf

Herr Hesse placed 4th in class.
