    OR

    Walking back to his mates, one of the riders was heard to say, "But I've got all the best farkles that website said to install. My bike is supposed to be awesome off road!"

    The Go Pro distortion is deceiving. This is a service road that goes straight up a ski slope so it is pretty steep and a bit slippery because it is wet. These guys look like they don't have a lot of off pavement experience. It was a funny sight to come upon. The photo is not mine, someone else posted it, probably on ADV.
    ride what you've got; enjoy the road you're on!

    Considering that they are riding bikes that would probably out-perform legendary off-road bikes like the Sherpa T or a Mick Andrews Replica, their situation is pretty comical. But, in the laughing at you vs. laughing with you kind of a way........

    I'm thinking that the lead bike went down and the following riders were too close, target fixated and grabbed the front brakes to join their fellow riders in the horizontal plane. I saw three Harley's do the same thing in a really easy curve one evening. First guy ran off the road into a field, and the two others followed in a nice row to end up on top of each other. No injuries except to bikes and pride.


    Or the bikes were tired from the hill climb and simply needed a short rest stop.
