What is Aaron doing?!?!

OK - I have been around many forms of racing most of my life. Granted, this Adventure bike stuff is new to me, but I am going to give some guesses to what is going on in this pic: http://www.expeditionexchange.com/aa...r/1gVertGS.jpg

1. Aaron is much older than he looks and is getting his first rectal screen

2. Aaron really pissed off Mr. Clean

3. Aarons front wheel bearings or brakes locked up and the guy is lending a hand

4. Tech inpection for brakes and fork

5. Penalty for arriving at the checkpoint too soon and it was not enough just to make him wait.

6. Aaron wanted to do a nose wheelie and Mr. Clean objected

7. Attempt at new method of washing the whole tread without moving the bike

8. Aarons rear wheel bearings, brakes, or drivedrain locked up and Mr. Clean is offering to carry him accross the finish line

9. A bonding technique focusing on mutual trust

and lastly:

10. Mr. Clean thought Aarons ass looked good and wanted a closer look

Whatever it is Aaron, I hope you got to twist the throttle afterwards and spray Mr Clean with rocks!

I think they're testing the abrasion resistance of Mr. Clean's cod-piece.

If Aaron didn't go tumbling end over end, then I'm truly impressed at the skills. I can barely keep the front tire of my mountain bike from digging in too deep.

I can't even imagine what that motorcycle feels like.

Earlier in the day I had said some bad things about Jimmy Lewis. In that picture Jimmy is saying: "Take it all back! All of it! Or else!"

Here's Jimmy Lewis playing around with a KTM 950 Adventure S, which weighs something like 450 lbs. and has something like a 37" saddle height, not exactly a small bike:

Here's a video of Jimmy Lewis doing some quickie turns on a BMW 1150 GS Adventure, not exactly a small bike either (save to disk and then play it):

Here's Jimmy Lewis in the 2000 Paris-Dakar:

And here's Jimmy Lewis in the 2001 Paris-Dakar:

That Jimmy Lewis is one bad mushroom cloud layin' mofo.
