    Starting fromthe left-Distance in miles and tenths from the start in that section, Then Time in minutes from "key time" in the middle, small number at the far right is average speed for the section. Key Time- say an Enduro starts at 8:00 your are riding Row or minute 15 (4-5 guys start every minute) you set your watch 15min fast and go. Trying to stay on the pace. Got it ?? There is more to it than that but thats the main idea. Ill try to find some links that explain it better if you guys want.

    OK - my first post here on advrider, but I think the GS in the Enduro class is funny as hell. The story could not have been recanted more brilliantly. I have run enduros and hare scrambles in the past on an XR 250 and used to laugh at the guys running 400+. Especially when dump time came to kick time. I applaud your even attemtpting to run the GS and would have hated to be the guys in front of you before the first checkpoint:D

    Cheerio mr. 'zilla. I hope to see you one the trail one day...well...maybe not:thumb

    I just had to put in my 2 cents, that is by far the coolest thing I have ever heard. Most of us just imagine doing crazy things like that on a gs but you actually did it, and told the story with such flair, everyone who reads this will at least have inspirations of trying to reach the standard you have set, i just started into the big bore dual sport world and would love to try something like this, anyone who has a good list of real world off road goodies to turn a 1100 gs into a back woods workhorse, I want it .

    Simply the ballsiest account I've ever heard, I used to think a 650 on a trial like that was crazy, but you my friend have redefined loco!!!!

    Hmmm...the first post was back in late August '03. Will Javarilla prove that true adventurers learn nothing from their mistakes? What will the new score be?

    Great job! What a story teller. To hear it told live in front of the camp fire would be priceless.

    Javarilla, you're quite the story-teller! The longevity of this thread is an obvious tribute to that fact. I wish I could tell stories the way you do. You might have inspired me to start working on it.

    What did you do - endos on a bumblebee? If not the entire story, how about cluing us in as to what was the immediate cause of that damage - especially the wadding up of that bike back to front?
