    Cause these guys got em.

    I would like to try riding this. I think I'd walk as much as ride, but I'd try it.

    By Zeusus, I don't even think I would want to walk much of that. Altho, if I tried to ride it, I would definitely wear knee pads - hate to bang my knee up if I fell 100 feet down to the riverbed.

    Reminds me of the mining roads in Arizona. You can see a fine selection of smashed vintage automobiles at the bottom of the canyons. (Very slow rusting in AZ.) When you go off the road, they just take the carcasses out. Removing the vehicle is not worth the trouble.

    Glad they put in that railing on the foot bridge. I'd sure hate for anyone to fall a few feet into the brush.

    Safety first!

    Not sure if you were referring to this, but I think this is appropriate here:

    That's one of those that you know you can ride easily, but the 1 in 1000 slip up could cost your life. I don't think I'd ride it.

    It's the same width as any other piece of singletrack that y'all ride every week. It's just mental.

    That's what I was saying above... but 1 time in 1000 your front wheel might track off the trail by accident... do it here = Dead.

    Might be one of those things I did once to do it, get the video as proof and never do it again.

    Besides, video of a ride like that is essential. No better way to go out then to have last few moments of their life chronicled via helmet cam...
