geez that is SCARY! :huh
watch for those red flags!
Trying to walk the bike on those bits of sleeper sticking out was a bad idea as the space between the sleepers on the first 5 or so is perfect for riding it over, then the next one is just not wide enough (thankfully) to swallow the front wheel..and just wide enough to jam it solid... That X gets heavy real quick when you are trying to lift it and move it back with a river below the rusted deck of the bridge reminding you where you are going if you screw up...
go playin on the playa after it rains, You'll get stuck!
Looked OK from the bank. Only a foot deep with a sandy bottom.

You got off easy in the fence. I ran my bicycle into one blowing a corner in a practice road race and my left bicep got chewed up badly. The scar goes more than halfway around. :eek1
Luckily, I don't have any pics of my stupid moment. I ended up at the bottom of an erosion gully at the bottom of a much bigger erosion upside down under my 640A.
Took me an hour to get out. Wore out the battery and had to resort to kick starting the bike. THAT took some doing. Got good at it towards the end.
Allright, I'll bite.
Went out on a short little jaunt on my own in the desert close to Ouarzazete in Morocco. Happily bumbling along the gravel tracks when I came to this soft looking patch of sand. I can cross that... bad idea. Took three hours for me to get the bike out. had to drag it on its side over the surface of the mud for three metres to harder ground. Not doing that again (alone) some things are much more fun when shared.
i bet you lost a few pounds off the waist line after that little adventure
No safety helmet and rider wear or the dog? That was reckless
wow. i must admit that while a "lol" indicates "funny".... this is the first time in a very LONG time i've seen some things online that actually drew a good laugh from me. thanks, guys. after this day, i needed it.
hopefully i'll have some harmless embarrassment to share in the future so i can contribute at my expense.
This photo made the evening news across Austalia in 2008, with the authorities trying to locate the rider ( dick...! ) for the obvious reasons.
10 out of 10 for effort I guess...
Can we go ahead & declare a winner!! This is Awesome! What was this guy thinking as he mounted his steed & hit the start button?
I think I can see it, but could you be so kind as to circle the exact point on that track where you thoughts went from, "I can make it" to "Ah F---" & the the frantic scan for harder ground? Feel Yer pain, done that one myself, & you are correct sir, some things are much more fun when "shared" lol, damn things are heavy by yourself.
I can make it, I can make it.............
