WR450F Too Heavy?

Never, But however, they only break when I fly over it.:crazy:

Thats a scary bridge alright. These pics are usually after you've tried. How did it go?

Oh well, shit happens I quess. I would walk it over and most likely swim. Have a long branch with you which you can showe between front spokes when the bike submerges. So you can find it. :crazy:

Can you say, "Endurocross?"

would you guys walk it or ride across it? I think I would just ride right across it.

The picture must be decieving as it doesn't look that bad. I'd ride across it.

Depending on the the transition onto the bridge, I would recommend a bit more speed. Perhaps a second gear run so that your momentum will most likely carry you and the bike to the other side if the bridge starts to collapse.

Keep the front tire light when using the momentum that drtbk4ever is talking about. Could you imagine the results of decent 2nd gear speed and dropping the front threw that rickety old bridge. Oh and video tape all who cross for insurance reasons and for the humor factor.

Yeah, that could be nasty. Maybe a 2nd gear wheelie.

Or, it looks like a short enough span that if the transition onto the bridge has a nice smooth lip, one may be able to fly it. Third gear outta do it.

A wheelie will put ALL the weight on one wheel and not distribute it over two if the "cross logs" are week!.......

Doesn't look too bad until you see the second photo. I'd be saying to myself "Don't look down, don't look down".

I think those photos were a couple years old, the bridge deck is full of holes now. It's basically years of logs piled on top of each other while the bottom continues to decay :D The cyclone fence might hold :crazy:

We cross this bridge twice a week. It is one of three in a row.There is about 15+miles of great trails and 3 huge pits on the other side. The wr is plated but the yz isn't yet,so until then,its over the bridges.

Both of those bridges look like "one wheelers". I had a cross-country race a few weeks back and they used two 18" conveyor rollers side-by-side to make one of our bridges. It was freaky when you started across it and just kept going until the other end. On my last lap, there was a guy's bike at the bottom of the small creek and he was sitting on a log next to it!
