When I was a teen we had a place we called hill climb #89, It was a run what you brung type of event limited to street legal. Not too terribly tall maybe around 70 ft but the last 3 feet steepened to almost 89°. If you had just the right speed and hit the rear brake about the time you front tire left the ground at the crest you could just barely drop the front over the top in time. Front heavy bikes actually faired better on it that street trail type bikes.
I remember being there once when a guy just almost made it with his Harley sportster. Once back at the bottom his wife or girlfriend, I don't know which called him several feminine adjectives, he said if you think you can do any better have at it. Wrong thing to say to that woman. Checking to see if the bike would still run she stomped the kick starter then sped to the top drove down the other side came back around and went right back up it again.
Pretty sure he had to ride B***h on the way home.
Never try to tell me it can't be done

How is it allowed to simply avoid whatever the challenge is by going around it? As a kid in MO. we lived in oune of hte toughest, roughest, briar-infested places and they used to run 500-1000 enduro riders through it on a regular basis. Factory teams line Penton ran it as did Army teams etc. The difference? You didn't have to pay to watch it in a stadium!!
