And people think we're nuts....

...for going around corners and dragging knees at (or over) hwy speeds and doing all the other "Fun " things we do. I came across this the other day at work and all I could say was " F*$^ that noise"

That is a little to risky for my blood, and on top of that I'm short for a reason....cuz I'm afraid of heights

Enjoy the clip,

James

I'd do it!

What they didn't show is the scratches and bloodied elbows those guys had from leaning against the mountain....

I'm wondering what the sign says.
I'm thinking "Caution: Trail Narrows Ahead".

I only see two riders. Was there a third?
"Hey, anybody seen Wally?"
"Yeah he's right behind me. Uh...Wally?"

They find someone at the top of the trail who tells them they should've taken the Interstate just over the hill.

They get to the top of the mountain where the lead rider tells everyone "now the going gets tough!"

They arrive at the McDonalds at the top of the peak with the sign outside stating "2 served".

I've riden stuff almost like that here in northern CA. Georgetown, Forrest hill, and Downieville come to mind. They have stuff that is that tough, and rediculous steep, just not a sheer drop-off that lasts that long. That's the kind of riding my friends took me on when I was learning how to ride a motorcycle. A '84 cr250! Those boys def had 4 strokes. with low gearing, they're like little tractors, and not as hard as it looks to ride the scarry stuff.
But still, those guys are stallions for taking that!
