Cool photo


I tried that on a single track in the woods with my Enfield, I'll need to find a more suitable location though

As MX-great Bob Hannah was quoted after trying out an old Triumph scrambler, "It jumps great...it just doesn't land very good"!

My very limited experience with jumping on an Enfield taught me the same thing. I wouldn't really call it 'landing', crashing covers the experience better.

Taken at a race meeting at Oulton Park in England, about ten years ago, before I got a digital camera anyway, sorry for the poor quality..

^Awesome shots! The front tire wipers are interesting.

I bet the rear travel is 2-3 inches, not much more up front. I can only imagine the landing once airborn.

There is a whole lot of stuff behind the engine and below the seat (especially along the frame just in front of the rear suspension). I can't make out what it is, does anyone know?

Those are canvas covers to keep water from the magneto and air intakes.

The device with the thumb valve on top has a hose turning down with what looks like may be a tire valve attachment on the end. Could it be a pump or compressed air? I think I see tire tools strapped to it. Where's the right side foot peg?
