I do not believe I would attempt something like this as I value my life to omuch (although I have skydived and scuba regularly and have with sharks) but I get the heebee jeebees just watching parts of this and no matter HOW good you are - all it takes is a rock slipping the wrong way on the the front tire and giving way and you down the side!!

Have seen that one.

Looks like that $hIt we ride up in Los Padres and Kennedy Meadows. At 235lbs the KTM250 is like riding a mountainbike. Having observed trials experience helps a lot.

A friend went off the traill riding Snowy Trail in Los Padres, dropped down about 10 feet. Took 3 of us 45 minutes to pull his bike back up on the trail.

The vid is an extreme case of the drop-offs. :D


Here's one...be careful out there:

Like seeing how close you can hold a match to a firecracker.
There's only one way to find out.

The video of Hans and Franz playing in the Alps has been floating around on the net for at least a year.

Definately catches your attention the first time you watch it.

Regarding the trail, besides the steps at 03:05, you could ride that on a versys. But I guess I wouldn't. But it's not liked you could just turn around at every point on the trail...

CJBROWN's video shows that these guys are clearly overdoing it. Turning in that hard in blind corners is a big no-no. Although the crash was the result of something else, probably lack of concentration.
