Some people are like Slinky's! Good for nothing, but still bring a big smile to you face when you push them down the stairs.

  • Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.
I will change that slightly. Maybe 99% of riders should not attempt  hardcore offroad riding on a big dualie.
Still it is amazing what some okes can do on the big bikes and beautifull to see.

If he can do that on a 1190 Adv, imagine what he can do on a proper enduro.  :patch:

I've heard somewhere that he's not bad on an enduro. He might have won one or two of those "weekend warrior" races ;)

Chris Birch is a multiple Roof of Africa, Romaniacs and other Hard Enduro Champion...  

He comes to SA a couple of times a year to do training.  I can strongly recommend attending one of his courses  :thumleft:

It's like saying it's not impossible for old guys to skate or ride a BMX and then have a video of Tony Hawk skating a big ramp or Matt Hoffman on a BMX.

There is only a handfull of people like Chris Birch...............and I'm not one of them.  :imaposer:

Now what does old guys have to do with the latent ability of big DS bikes?

The vid was not of a toppie on a plastic but rather a big bike being ridden like a plastic.

Just wondering :peepwall:
