It might look like a crash,....but there is actually a 50 foot sink hole on the other side of the teeter. I was perfecting the long roll tucker, with a full twist to flat.

Well, my best friend's little sister had one of these (rear-wheel steer):

It's allright doug! I was a little too big to ride the "Big wheels" in a seated position when they came out.
You "clued" me in on the kneeling position. I was rocking the IH Pedal tractor in my First Downhill event, in 1966 on the banks of Cedar creek in Olathe Kansas. Split my lip open on the steel steering wheel, when I hit the botton of the bank. Kansas downhilling has always been short, but intense.

back on track!

I envision a pedal-tractor version of the Omak Stampede's Suicide Race

Is that pushing up the switchbacks on the Ridge Trail . . . or picking yourself up off Evolution?

Haha, neither It's pushing up Snakeonia, a trail, which for the most part, is way over my head.

Couple more pics form it (not me):




I'm loving the riding up here, but it's way different from what I'm used to in Nor Cal. I'm still running clips, need to go pick up a set of platforms

Heh. Wow. Little known thing, there. Seen it a few times - was born in Omak, and got back now and again over a few years.
