Well I spent a couple days last week re-jetting my bike and it runs good.... too good... it has a ton of power, idles good, good snappy response from the throttle.

Anyway... i had my helmet cam on....

What happened there? The bike just randomly decided to throw you off her saddle?

Must have been due to the evil stock front tire :ride:

That's a great looking riding area however

Excellent quality, I wish there were trails like that down here in Southern Missouri.

to be honest i don't know what happened...
one minute i was cruis'n... i zipped a little throttle and a way i went.....
it was like the bike washed out from under me...

It also made me want to cry to see a brand new flopping across a bed of rocks....
but did you notice... it didn't stall :-)

I had a similar occurance happen on a flat DG road. Front wheel washed out on me at about 30 mph. I spent an hour trying to get my clutch and broken handguard in rideable form, since I was 10 miles from my truck. I drew blood off my elbow too. Scraped a 3"x2 1/2" off my arm.

Category 3 gravity storm got me good.

These bikes are great for not stalling. As long as the wheel is in the air so it can keep turnng she won't stall :ride:

Hey just watching you vid again because I love the riding area and cannot get over the quality from that helmet cam. I'm currently in the market for a cam myself and was wondering if you could tell me what youve got for a cam. Thanks
