    It was super fun. And loads easier than organizing a rally. I'll write it all up in a bit.

    Folks, go ahead and ask any questions... I'll try to address them when I write.

    Your question is probably answered in Rally University.

    1. Have you seen Workaholics on Comedy Central?

    Let's just start right off with the hilarious crash. Here's the narration:

    Gas! Shift! Yeah!
    Gas! Shift! Yeah!
    Gas! Yeah!
    Oh! Brakes!
    Ahh! Tank slapper!
    Front brakes front brakes front brakes!
    Ooooo, little trees! Little trees! Little trees! Little trees!
    Ok, I'll lay down here for a minute.

    At the very end you can see my shadow as I reach over to pick up the bike. In doing so I must have hit the stop button on the gopro.

    Here's the start of the stage. Same video, just linked to the start (3:00 minute mark).

    Man, I've been riding motocross for years, and I've wanted to try rallymoto, but watching your video, and then clicking on a few that came up on the youtube side bar, the slippery gravel roads and wide sweeping turns scare the crap out of me at speed on a bike.

    9five9: Dude, you would smoke me, I'm sure. I finished a rally and rode 110 miles of stage and dropped it twice. I rode a motorcycle for the first time in my life three years ago. I probably have 15-25 days riding a motorcycle dirt in my whole life. I've done 3 dual sport rides... ever. If I can do it, you can do it.

    czwalga: That's not a wreck, that's just... how motorcycles are. If you ever get a motorcycle, don't buy one that's so sleepy like my motorcycle. It takes naps all the time!
