    I wish I had 1/10th of that skill.

    Hell, if I could only ride a wheelie. :lol3

    This rider is in the same category as the Cirque du Soleil performers :eek1

    Just trying to bunny hop the bike over those logs would probably put me in the emergency room:D

    100kg is to heavy for you?

    Good luck finding a bike you think is light.

    And if you think the FR is no better than your DR, I strongly suggest sticking with the more basic bikes like the DR, XT etc

    Made me go out in the garage and look at my 300exc. I love snow but no riding for while here.

    I looked up the weight, and yes it's indeed 100kg, but it felt heavier to me than my DR 350, at the time... anyway I don't see the reason why you took it so personal...

    make no mistake ladies and gentlemen. the FR 350 is an awesome wee bike. take it from a chap who has one. it is the easiest bike in the world to ride and will give you the confidence to do things you would not normally go anywhere near

    Yep, some of those bunny hops were way above my pay grade.

    As for the wheelies, hop on a KTM two stroke and you won't be able to help but wheelie. Seriously. I put extra flywheel weight on mine just to try to keep the front wheel on the ground. It didn't help much. :evil

    After watching that, I realized just how bad a rider I really am. :cry And I want to drink some Kool-Aid too dammit. This could get expensive.

    I believe one of the bikes is running trials, the other knobbies.


    All I can say is, who says the smokers are dead? Lots of life in those simply, yet effective machines! :D

    Sweet vid. Tough to beat a 300 pinger, or any pinger for that matter. :evil
