Nice ride footage, and bike down :d

i dropped my klr today and it was awesome hehe.
nothing happened to the bike, or me, just walk out of a bad traction situation.
the video does not do the trail justice.. it was very sandy and loose and my tires had too much tire pressure... so it was slicing thru sand instead of grabbing it .. .

enjoy

the drop happens at around 2.5 minutes.

yea the trail is fun.
the bike i laid it down intentionally, easier and safer than fighting it.
when it slid to the left, i corrected it and turned right, it took me to the ditch, so i corrected again to the left, locked my rear brake, made it slide sideways until it sat down on the guards.

it was fun
