    I think you just needed bigger bikes.

    Our other rider was on a DR 400 and wouldn't even attempt it. If we hadn't had all our camping gear, water, food and cans of beer :freaky we may have made it, but what it has done is put me off trail riding by myself on the big KTM because without the other 2 I never would have got the bike off me without doing some serous damage to my leg

    It's obvious to everyone that your technique is ALL WRONG! You should always drink the beer at the BOTTOM OF THE HILL!!! :rofl

    Watching this just made me realize that when one of the riders at Death Valley had a similar foot pinning incident (and broke his foot) he didn't cuss once. :lol3
