Not to be confused with "A is definitely the best bike for ." Those go in the bike-specific forums.

Examples:

"A KDX is definitely the fastest bike in singletrack."
"A SM610 is definitely the fastest bike on a cart track."
"A Ducati Monster is definitely the fastest bike around NJMP."

It's really easy and fun, everybody can participate!

Now this is rather odd cornering technique.

Yours truly (again). I kind of like this pic. The GS is a lot of fun in the twisties. Probably not as much fun as a Motard would be, but the seat is a way more "old man ass" friendly.

Just saying...
There would not be near as many cool river crossing pictures if folks followed that rule all the time. The next generally accepted rule is don't be the first guy to cross... ;-)

Is it really a crossing if the bike never actually crosses or should it be a crossing fail?

Or if that shot was taken after he picked his bike up and left?

It's a good thing I didn't make some unsubstantiated and snide comment about the differences in those that crash and call a wrecker, and those that crash and just pick their shit up and wheelie it outta there

Mebe he's adjusting his shifter linkage, and checking the fluid level in his chain oiler? Can't be too careful ya know. That chain might saw right thru his swingarm without it.

Props to him for staying on the gas too.
