    Looking for a pic

    I'm looking for a specific pic I have seen. I just think its a cool one, but I cant find it. I also dont know where I saw it. I know I'm not much help

    The pic is of a guy turning left I believe on a small kinda inground berm and the handle bars look like they are only an inch or two off the ground. I have seen the pic several times, but can't for the life of me remember where. If anyone knows which one I'm talking about and can link me to it, that would be awesome.

    That's the one! Awesome. Thank you to both of you guys. That first pic is amazing too. Can't imagine leaning the bike over that much.

    Are these just pics of fast shutter of guys about to eat it? Or are they really able to lean that much over?

    I've wondered that too. I think though with enough speed it's possible to hang on to it. You would have to come into the turn though really fast.

    if you look at the tire angle relative to the ground, they really aren't "leaned over" that far. very impressive riding.

    Downhill run with tons of speed into a bermed corner will allow you to do such. Takes quite a bit of skill and balls to hammer a corner like that though. I would be OTB and about 50yrds from my bike!!! LOL

    Yes, they can lean over that much. Watch Life Cycles.

    Good photos!

    Speed and a good berm is essential.
