    It didn't work out.

    Well, at least you were able to get up.

    Is that a quarry?
    You'll never know how fast you can go, until you go too fast.

    Nope. Just west Austin. Our condo is sitting on the same stuff.

    Interesting that it would have benches like that.

    Bike survive OK?

    Oh, yeah. I have it armored to the hilt, specifically for this place.



    Crash diagnosis....

    This line is really tricky for most everyone because of the angled ledges that usually push everyone to the left, where all the rubble is from everyone working their way up that very outside line. I usually take a line further to the right, but.....

    I noticed a couple of notches that I thought I could use as "chocks" to keep from skittering to the left. The plan was to use the first notch to loft the front wheel and float it across the top of the second notch, and use the drive onto the second notch to loft the rear wheel to the top of the top ledge then roll the rest with the momentum built up. Unfortunately the rear wheel skidded out on the second ledge and kicked the ass end around in the air, landing me sideways (but still upright) on the edge of the second ledge. The upright part didn't last long, as I (of course) tipped over to the downhill side. Why does it always have to tip to the downhill side?

    Here's how its supposed to work. This was right after we changed trail direction (this used to be a downhill section) and the ledges still have sharp edges. This climb has become much more difficult once the ledge edges started to round and smooth off, as pictured above.

    Re: Tried a new line.

    Looking at that most people would think it's easy to go up those but those would be very tricky for sure... speed, throttle and weight planted at the right place is all key making that happen... then if you have a little to much throttle and max traction happens and you can't control the wheelie the bike flips over and ends up at the bottom.

    Me and a couple of buddy set out to put a few more easy miles on before we started doing some hard riding and ran across this really cool looking place... just had to try it, you know young and nothings to hard to do...

    Now ask me how I know... it happened to me one back time around 197/76 on a brand new Kawi F7 175cc endure street legal bike with less than 50 miles... O yes, it got everything. I won't bore you with the list of all the parts, by grace I worked for a Kawa dealer that helped a bunch... still about broke the bank though
