You weren't fvcking kidding!!!!!

Personally I would never ever do that to my bike, and I would likely call anyone I saw doing that an idiot. With that said it is your bike and you can do with it what you want and if you are willing to put it through that then all the power to you.

Dont take what I am saying the wrong way. I am not calling you an idiot, just saying that if I happened to see someone doing that on a sport bike I would say "what an idiot" lol

And +1 to what Lanco said. Looks like you definitly have dirt riding experience, and I can't imagine how little traction those street tires had on that sand.

Since we're talking about taking street bikes out of their element, ever tried jumping one? They are actually pretty smooth so long as you keep the tire straight and don't catch too much air. Wouldn't recommend trying unless you have some MX experience. lol

These bikes can do well on dirt and trails. As long as you are smooth on the controls, you can put them through a lot. It's actually a good training exercise letting the bike slide around.

I hope your fork oil doesn't have dirt in it, I also hope that the seals are still in good shape. You likely have about a year or more worth of "normal" riding derbi that has made it past the dust covers and is itching to make friends with your seals just by taking on a dirt trail like that for a little bit...who would have thought? it likely wouldn't show signs, because once the inner tubes have bottomed out a few times, the dirt is far past the dust seal. It can become a problem if you keep doing that again....hopefully it hasn't already.

i jump mine, though they're not really "jumps" as much as they are big bunny hops. I dont think I've gone over a foot high, intentionally
Once I was riding through an unfamiliar area a lil faster than I should have at night, and went through an intersection which had a huge hump in the middle formed by traffic. Result was me catching a lil over 2ft of air at around 50mph and almost getting bucked off.
Definitely almost dropped a deuce in the process.

I have accidentally ended up on some dirt roads before... that was a lot of fun after I got over the initial shock of suddenly not being on pavement...

I always wondered if you could rig up some knobby on a CBR and ride it in the dirt trails lol. Turns out you can on street tires. Ill stick to my Motocross bikes for that though lol (yz250s and cr125)

cbr6rcr... That pic makes me second thought buying another used buy. Meh... Can't say I have done the same / worse before.

Took my first bike (250 Nighthawk) onto an MX course. FUN! STUPID! FUN!
