Some of these guys wouldn't know what a race was if it hit them in the face . I think I'll move to Japan and become the next national enduro champ!

It has always been there, just not in the title. Here's the current and original description: "Riding and Racing: stories, pictures, videos, tips, tricks, techniques, etc." I put it in the title because it seems most folks still don't know where to put riding related videos.

LMAO!! That's friggin' hilarious! I don't know who designed that course, but he doesn't seem to know much about Enduros, or even motorcycles in general. I pity those poor guys that were trying to run that course.

It looked more like a hare scramble than an enduro based on the starting procedure and lack of equipment on their bars. Maybe it's a combo of both? Different rules and regulations no doubt.

ok, iv seen some pretty bad riders before, but this is ridiculous!! these guys cant even pick their bikes up when they crash!!

Different cultures have different ideas about competition! Did you notice how every rider was very civil, and how much time they spent on the seat? I'd get black flagged and asked not to return after roosting half the field, politely of course.

The Japanese have a high regard for themselves -- even their respect for each other shows it in this video. IF I had known about this enduro scene, I would have gone to an event in Japan and snapped some nice photos for all on here. Maybe that will be possible next summer! :D Sanosuke!

I dig that wr killing the rest of them on the start.

Is that enduro like 8 hours long? It looks like all the people don't even really care about their bike *drops their bike* They all look so tired.I don't know why but i think it's funny!

Sure didn't look like they were moving all that fast. Sure did look like a fun course though. Nice to see an ol XR passin alot of newer bikes.

I noticed that almost none of them were standing. Not even when jumping. Who jumps sitting down? That's asking for trouble.

Reply by sparta4188 on 11/26/2007 3:22:14 PM
Well when seeing how slow they were going, it's not even reall a "jump" its more of a rather large bump in the road that their front tire gets off the ground!

I can see sparta4188 emulating the Japanese on his 4 wheeler.. hehe! Sanosuke!

Reply by sparta4188 on 11/26/2007 9:34:27 PM
as in emulating you must mean kicking their @$$? Well than yes your right!!!

Reply by wr250f95 on 11/26/2007 9:35:27 PM
your not passing them, the race is over.
