Have You Ever Hurled at the Starting Gate?

Location South America Miscellaneous Off-Road Honda CRF450X
Have You Ever Hurled at the Starting Gate? I have never hurled at the starting gate of a race, but that moment before the gate falls is about as electrifying as anything. I am thrilled to be at the starting line of a sweet new adventure...a new ride, so to speak. I would like to invite you along. By joining me in the coming posts, you are going to experience enduro like you have never seen or heard before. We are going to take you to riding spots that have never heard the sound of a motor. We are going to reach altitudes where bikes don't run so well. We are going to explore new trails that have never been explored except on foot. We are going to cover some ground. All of the ruggedness of the Andes of South America, combined with high caliber riders, great bikes, and a pile of stories to share. It's all right here!

Other than MotoMission, no other dirtbikes have been to this place.

The views don't suck! That's a couple of fellas looking up at the BIG mountain while laying low at 15,000 feet.

I look forward to sharing some great material with you. Pictures, vids, stories...Everything enduro! However, I want to take this journey with you. In fact, I would love to hear some of your stories as well. Your best enduro pics...of course! In our world of enduro, I know there are some crazy things that happen. So, for next time, feel free to send me your best pic of your mangled and crashed bikes. I want to see your piles of metal. The totally destroyed bike that you wish hadn't hit the rock. I want to see destruction...send one my way. On that note, you won't want to miss the next issue. The theme: Destruction...and do I have a story to tell.

No, but one of my old riding buddies pooped his pants at the Mosier Valley MX gate back years ago and rode the whole 250 Expert 45 minute moto.
