Talking Motorcycle Ridge Video

I guess this is taken in the Bookcliffs by GJ, CO. Amazing video. Guys better get out there soon before they shut it down! This guy is nuts. He has to be an inmate!

HD version:

Actually, it apparently is going to be shut down.

Ride it while you can.

5. Figures.

So is he an inmate?

Anyone know exactly what trail this is? My boss and his brothers now want to ride this trail.

cam

The camera distorts this tremendously.

Even though it's pretty interesting, It's not nearly as gnarly as this footage makes it look.

There are plenty other videos of this floating around out there.

I wouldn't ride it on MY 1200 ............. but I'd ride it on YOUR 450!

Still cool, huh?

I think it's a pretty gnarly video regardless!

I know that'd be intimidating on a mountain bike much less a 300+ lb motorcycle
