I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Skidoos did the job. Had a Japanese attempt to ride his bike to the South Pole - he got there, with help...

But this looks like a toy that could be a seriously dangerous amount of fun!  :ricky:

Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

A little ride that almost turned out to be a disaster.

The first picture is the mountain (4 Peaks, Phoenix, Arizona) and the second was frozen ICE across the roadway. We rode up the mountain and crossed some snow and frozen water puddles and streams and I thought it was a lot of fun  ;D

Rick turned the a corner and was upon the ice. He managed to keep it together and kept on going. After the second turn he saw some more ice and kept going. Only problem was that this was solid ice side to side for as far as the eye could see. He eventually slipped and fell. The road was cut into the mountain and the left side was just a wall and the right side a few hundred meter drop  :o

My buddy on the blue KLR dropped it twice and busted the left side shroud. The red XR 650 had no electric start. Ever tried kick-starting a 650 on solid ice, does not work that well  ;)

Took three of us about an hour to move XR about 250 meters across the ice. I now carry a long tow rope on my bike just in case.
