I believe I read wherever I got this pic from that he finished the race with the bike in that condition.

Robert is remembered as one of the most naturally talented motocross riders in history. In one of the most physically demanding disciplines in sports, he was notorious for his lack of training as well as his cigarette smoking. He even put his cigarette out on Sylvain Geboers's crossbar once on the start line at a series finale, which Jol ended up winning[1].

In sweltering heat and 80/20 tires, a very BAD idea...





======

An hour later and no tires... a very GOOD idea!!

Bad idea sequence

Missing shift from 1st to 2nd at critical moment results in this



Close up taken by helpful riding partner



Should I take the little side trail?


Nah, last time I tried it, I lost the bike to the downhill side. I have a "better" idea. I'll just push it straight over the drop off.


Uh oh!!! Bad idea!!!!


Too late now!!!! Second "good" idea - throw yourself under the bike
to protect it.


Will your faithful riding partner run to your rescue????

Not just yet. Need another photo or two.




I'm conveniently trapped in position until ample photos are taken. If you're
a skilled lip reader, you can perhaps read my lips under the full face helmet.

Make the bike a 640ADV, add a few trees, put me upside down UNDER the bike, with no one else around and you have my little 'oops.' Took me a good 90min to get the beast out of that farging ditch! Killed the battery and had to kick her many, many times.

...and now I want ANOTHER DS bike?!

Hint #1: This trail does not go through


Hint#2: This is the end.



"What are you talking about? Turn around! I think not. The road is right there... across the ravine..."

Night retrieval for you!

This is what happens when you show off and take a picture of yourself standing on the pegs.



Sure I can make it!

When the swingarm is holding the rear tire spinning in the air.....it's a little to deep. Softer snow would've been alright, but this suff was just icy enough to hold up the bike, yet let the rear wheel dig.



I figured with enough speed I could make it. Wrong again.

Walked away though, thankfully!
Brad21...that looks like the road up to Donner Summit above Donner lake...is that right? What a fantastic road!

Indeed it is Redbull. They used to have a little gathering called "The Old Hwy. 40 Motorcycle Days" and close that road for the weekend for TT's. The picture above was my ninth and final run of the weekend. Managed third place with a previous run in Open Twins despite the get-off.

Really a neat event. They had Supermoto races, hill climbing and some MX too. All kinds of bikes, a few karts and some midget cars did the TT.

I remembering hearing about this event during the two years I lived in Truckee, but was unable to to attend. Now that I live all the way across the country, I really miss all the great places to ride in the west. I also lived in Portland Oregon and would make weekend trips out to the Bend/Sunriver area. What a great place to call your home! I am guessing from your post that they no longer run this event? BTW, congrats on your placing.

Howdy All,

Sometimes a feller should just stay home where it's warm and dry.


My riding partner was warm and dry.


I didn't learn much
