Why is it somebody always catches the crashes on video, but never the cool stuff we do?

That's a great question.

Glad I got to see it though; learning experience.

It doesn't look that steep, honestly?

Maybe I'd feel different if it were me riding on it!

I thought the same thing when I watched the video. But trust me, it was like a 45 to 50 degree angle and it had slick paint in a few spots. My front washed out to but I caught it. Didn't help we had just got done crossing a creek and had muddy and wet street tires. I was surprised only one person fell. There was also a 1/2" deep stream running through the middle of the ditch that claimed a few bikes as well. Stuff was like ice.

Yea was definitely steep as . Just like Brandon said we had went thru about a foot of mud so the sides of the tires were caked in mud. There was a small 1 wide stream feeding that small water area there that was slick as fuxk. Ask Magicman

Your right leg should match your left arm with all that kickstarting you did. You need to switch hands when you "make love" and also kickstart the bike with the other leg so you will be proportional.
