Oh yeah. I saw some Jersey in there for sure.
Go ahead and jam your motorcycle between a pair of trees twice as close as the width of your handle bars then make an immediate left hand turn twice as tight as your bike is capable of making. Have a nice day!

Those rocks looked painful enough to justify elbow/forearm guards.
Funny video, thanks!

That guy seems to have some uncanny magnetic attraction between his head and the ground immediately around him. Freak of nature if you ask me.

The Jersey Pines are quite challenging, especially the trails marked by all the Enduro Clubs.

That being said, maybe that guy should ride out in the open

Thanks for the laugh Kristen, that's funny as hell! I wonder if it was his first time on a bike... all he did was crash. He spent more time hitting the ground than riding!

He's cornered the market as the worst rider ever. Every time the sign pointed up, he went down. Too funny.

Personally, I love the guy.
He just gets up, picks that bike up, and keeps on rockin'.
He isn't afraid. He obviously loves what he is doing. And...he has a great sense of humor.

I did Dirt Wise in Sumberton in January and man, that is some killer stuff ! The trees are tight, the soil is some sort of loose sandy crap, makes me wonder why I even ride watchin Shane and Mike blazing ahead on this stuff !

For thouse who are intrested, Enduro/hare scrambles are THE toughest thing you will ever do on a motorcycle, hands down ! But at the same time, you cant wait t odo it again ! Next NC race is comin up !

Dude, Im so out of shape right now, Im just kind of round --- But, that doesnt stop me ! Im hoping this will whip me into another shape, rather than just round ! Between this and my Road bike, I should survive !

I found some more info for the NC series, next round is April 6 -

I just cannot get enough of that tight woods style riding. It is an awesome workout for both the body and the mind. Those NJ trails are very much like what we have here in WI since the dirt bikes and ATVs cannot share the trails.

According to our DNR there is no way to punish someone riding an offroad bike because they do not have to be registered. ATVs in our state need to be registered for public trail use so when someone breaks a law on one they revoke the registration and add a fine. This in turn creates another problem. The ATV trail system is a multi hundred mile, plush groomed and monitored system. The limited Enduro trails are maintained by volounteers using donations from other riders and some grants from the state. Our most popular riding area was given access to more property this year but no money to develop the trails. Almost seams unfair.

my first hill climb of the year at Hollister Hills OHV park and I nail a rut that sends me sideways into a tree and my buddy rides up next to me and says "when you're finished hugging that tree, I'd really like to get some riding in before noon." fun video thanks for sharing

I got to see Mike Lafferty ride up close and personal yesterday and it was a real treat.

I went to the Curly Fern Enduro near my hometown and parked near this technical little bit with a log placed across, but almost parallel, with the trail. People were falling over it all day, and if there were more than two bikes it became a complete cluster-f*ck. Lotsa peeps just got off their bikes to get over it.

Well don't ya know one guy gets gnarled up and some other mama-luke parks behind him and they are bumping into each other and we hear this warbling scream and it's Mike giving a heads up and he comes blazin' into the turn and takes the perrfect line through it without even thinking about it, dancing right past the two mortals like they were just a coupla pine saplings. He got through there quicker and cleaner, with two guys in there, than most, no all, people got through it when it was clear.

So now me and a coupla other spectators go running to another little section just to watch him come wailing through. He hit this other section so hard, completely on the pipe, front end barely on the ground. Just pure brilliance on wheels.

Anyway, I think I caught the bug. Enduros are cool. Very Very Very cool.

Racing, but in the woods. With your buddies. And about 100 other like-minded people. Who'da thunk it?

I would like to try it this year.

I did the Curly Fern last year. Some of those guys are awesome who can blast right through & make it look easy.
If you haven't done one, go for it.

Uggghhhh racing in the mud is the COMPLETE work out! Your bike gains about 30lbs of goo and completely changes the handling from balanced to [email protected]#$ed. It is fun though
