    Exactly Frank, why he should have seen he was not at the top but 3 feet away. but you sorta have to admire his willingness and ability to make the climb.

    It may have been a shear drop-off on the other side!

    there is that. like riding over the rail of an iron rail bridge one side just a fall of about 20 feet the other could be an 100 feet down

    He may have stalled the engine when he slowed near the top.

    I'll bet he had to use a different bike if he wanted to try again on the same day

    and different shorts
    my last time on a track( motorcross track) I was going through cancer treatment...radiation...lots of it... I figured I would give it one last run....I was almost dead before I unloaded my bike...it only spit me off once. Im gladd I had put on my yamaha extra thick very nice life vest...I didnt feel a thing. I did pass a few newer bikes(mine is a 79 yz 250) I had a blast. and had to have somebody else put the bike back in the truck.. after that it just gets ridden around the house& neighborhood. I did do a lot of drag racing after that but it was car stuff.top sportsman&promod, now Im done with that.I cant hardly do squat. I no longer run a performance machine shop. just piddle at home with my stuff. everything fast is gone. and it drives me nuts.
