something like this.."no,no it will be easier close to the water"
working on it, working on it - they are really deep down, though... just booted an old Mac (OS9.2, hasn't been booted in 2 years) to retrieve an old video file. It'll be worth it if I can convert it to a modern file format ...
I think her shave and haircut were a real improvement...
sorry - great thread... If I only had a pic of me selling my TT600 to buy a wedding ring.... hmm - king of all bad ideas.
At least she bought me a Tiger last year... while pregnant. Who says pregnant women are unreasonable?!
My wife was so reasonable while pregnant, we decided it would be okay for her to get pregnant 3 more times! Except now they're turning into teenagers...
was this pic taken mid crash? or did he ride out of the frame break???
I believe I read wherever I got this pic from that he finished the race with the bike in that condition.
In sweltering heat and 80/20 tires, a very BAD idea...
An hour later and no tires... a very GOOD idea!!
All I can say is 'DANG!'
Missing shift from 1st to 2nd at critical moment results in this
Close up taken by helpful riding partner
Should I take the little side trail?
Nah, last time I tried it, I lost the bike to the downhill side. I have a "better" idea. I'll just push it straight over the drop off.
Uh oh!!! Bad idea!!!!
Too late now!!!! Second "good" idea - throw yourself under the bike
to protect it.
Will your faithful riding partner run to your rescue????
Not just yet. Need another photo or two.
I'm conveniently trapped in position until ample photos are taken. If you're
a skilled lip reader, you can perhaps read my lips under the full face helmet.
11 points out of 10 for that story, jonz!
Make the bike a 640ADV, add a few trees, put me upside down UNDER the bike, with no one else around and you have my little 'oops.' Took me a good 90min to get the beast out of that farging ditch! Killed the battery and had to kick her many, many times.
...and now I want ANOTHER DS bike?!
Hint #1: This trail does not go through
Hint#2: This is the end.
"What are you talking about? Turn around! I think not. The road is right there... across the ravine..."
Night retrieval for you!
The rest of the story
i got this funny feeling when i saw your first pic, that i've been there before.
This is what happens when you show off and take a picture of yourself standing on the pegs.
Sure I can make it! oser
When the swingarm is holding the rear tire spinning in the air.....it's a little to deep. Softer snow would've been alright, but this suff was just icy enough to hold up the bike, yet let the rear wheel dig.
I figured with enough speed I could make it. Wrong again.
Brad21...that looks like the road up to Donner Summit above Donner lake...is that right? What a fantastic road!
Indeed it is Redbull. They used to have a little gathering called "The Old Hwy. 40 Motorcycle Days" and close that road for the weekend for TT's. The picture above was my ninth and final run of the weekend. Managed third place with a previous run in Open Twins despite the get-off.
Really a neat event. They had Supermoto races, hill climbing and some MX too. All kinds of bikes, a few karts and some midget cars did the TT.
I remembering hearing about this event during the two years I lived in Truckee, but was unable to to attend. Now that I live all the way across the country, I really miss all the great places to ride in the west. I also lived in Portland Oregon and would make weekend trips out to the Bend/Sunriver area. What a great place to call your home! I am guessing from your post that they no longer run this event? BTW, congrats on your placing.
"Could I have more please?"
Sometimes a feller should just stay home where it's warm and dry.:eek1
My riding partner was warm and dry.
I didn't learn much
