Wicked How not to ride your new GS

Sorry if this was already posted but I just saw a pretty cool video by ALTRider. I guess their crash bars really do work.

I use AltRider bars, but in my opinion that the video with the guy riding on soft dirt is a joke....losing the OEM mirrors [windscreen next] is a given...honestly his two drops were nothing...no protection needed for those.

This video has the Doors, a plus, and a real variety of where a GS goes and what can happen...protection helps but never eliminates damage.

Looks like quite a few of those clips were from Rawhyde classes. Fun!

Maybe this guy from Moscow is taking too many chances! Get Away In Moscow !! He makes it. No room for panniers!!

Warning!! This riding style will eventually kill you.

I'm truly surprised he even stops at red lights.
But each to their own. Fate & the gene pool has a very long standing relationship.

Ah, perhaps losing a loose mirror? Spelling is not my forte and obviously proof reading isn't either...

Cool video.
1:13 reminds me of all the bitching about how ATVs are going to hurt you by rolling over you, hitting your head and back, what bikes reputedly don't do...
