I think the picture is tilted to make it look steeper. Nev

Whoa, that is hard to watch. Only the young and invincible would take that on. If one of those bikes looses traction while backing up, both bike and rider could end up over the edge. Smaller wheel base trail bikes would be more appropriate.

I've ridden my gi-normous BMW 1150 GS Adventure along some scary trails in Morocco, Turkey, Bosnia (and some of the bends on the Stelvio pass are pretty scary) but the thought of riding it on those roads makes my blood run cold.

They did really well on what appeared to be standard road bikes :shock: .

Respect :!:

Scary stuff!

I think I'd be pretty nervous doing that on foot because of that the sheer drop to the side. The thought of doing it on a bike, especially trying to manage the weight if it started to go, sends shudders up my spine. Maybe it's my age? No, I don't think so..............

Incredible self confidence; better riders than me by far!
