All else aside, all he was trying to do was get the brake dust off the wheels!
Agree, I'd never try it either, but thought his confidence was off the chart; mine woulda plummeted at the shoreline, and I'da reversed and did a u-turn. Not sure about forward momentum, given the rocky creek bottom, but I'll never find out first hand. As for GW capabilities, I thought he did his GW proud, by showing us just what they are capable of. Again, I definitely would not even attempt it, but applaud those who are young enough, strong enough, brave enough and whatever else it takes to pull it off. I also like his spirit in just wanting to have a little fun and adventure. Hats off to him!Isn’t this what adventure bikes were meant to do? Not a behemoth like a GL1800.
Probably first off, his confidence level wasn’t there. And of course, forward momentum was lacking.
I’m with the riders here who commented they wouldn’t do it. Not without a Honda Africa Twin. Standing on the pegs.
