Looks like fun.

But I have to admit in my experience falling down hurts - at least sometimes.

the motorcycle movie On Any Sunday.  Steve McQueen, Mert Lawwill and Malcolm Smith having a bit of fun on dirt bikes. 

Greatest movie ever made.

I even have a VHS version here!

I highly recommend anyone who has never seen it, to watch it!

Especially if you like the old stuff.

The flat track scenes are just awesome. Truly when men were men.

So did I but I didn't have desert down the road looks fun but easy we only had forest trail paths with lots of trees, sometimes a mistake and you'd make an unwanted trail and maybe get lucky and miss a tree.

I learnt on one of these. 1968. On the Street.

Used to go play in gravel pits the odd time, but no ground clearance or knobbies.

Those days - bias ply hard-as-a-rock tires, crap suspension, crap brakes ...

Now radials. adjustable. ABS discs ...

Hence the mollycoddle reference.

Some of course - not many tho' given the amount that we poured, sniffed or swallowed

Was in the hospital, Ides of March, 1972 with a guy who raced Husqvarna MX

I broke my leg in 3 places, he had his right hand almost torn off.

Ah - to be Young !

My younger brother collided with another guy who was going the wrong way around a MX track on a practice day.  I don't know how many breaks, but he spent about a month in the hospital in traction.  They had to lap the bone(s) and he lost a kneecap.  The leg is a lot shorter than the good one now.  He must have been about 12-13 years old or so.

 

The impact broke one of the fork sliders on his Montesa 125.
