    No thank you very much

    Thats what happens when you miss the warning sign and can't turn around.
    Those were light weight bikes, can;t see a 1200GS on that path.

    Agree! I do, however, admire their riding abilities.

    Absolutely amazing.

    WOW.
    When he stalled trying to go up over the big rock, yikes.
    Good thing the dirtbikes have an electric start. Imagine trying to kickstart a bike in that position.

    Fully agree on that one!

    Even after a few too many my judgement is still slightly better (slightly).

    Last Friday afternoon I rode I-30 through Dallas/FT Worth in the rain. A time or two it was just a hairy but different.
