I am kicking myself for cooking two of those bikes. I really do know how to operate a cable clutch I swear it. In the end that didn't actually hurt me all that bad, the hay bales took me out of the running. I looked over the final score sheet and the top 3 all scored something in the bales, everyone else got a zero. Its kinda strategy when a rider can fall down three times and still finish higher than a rider that only fell twice. But there are no excuses in the world of competition. A real rider can ride no matter what bike he is given, or how that bike is set up, and that's where I fell short. Not to worry I will be back in 2015 and I am going to beg borrow and steal as much time on a f800 as I can. Not that anyone in their right mind would let me ride there bike.
