    Dirt Bike Fall off 40ft Cliff

    Not anybody I know. Glad it was only the motorcycle!

    Dry canyon upper switch back dirt bike cliff fall. 08/2015. Warning lots of dirt bike engine damage. Once it landed on it's wheels It just took off down the cliff. In the video it doesn't look like it flew that far but the drop is about 40' down.

    Looks like nine riders helped in the drag back onto the trail. They looked quietly well choreographed as if they have done this before. Is this standard operating technique for a KTM?

    What great teamwork but I don't think duct tape and zip ties are going to fix that problem.

    With the price of KTM parts, that looks like about $8,000 worth of damage.

    KTM dirt bike. Great shape, low miles, only used for easy trail rides. Never crashed, just normal scratches, etc., from a low speed tipover. Haven't ridden it for awhile, and now it won't start, should be an easy fix. Needs fluids replaced. Bike ran great when new! Only selling because I have too many bikes, a kid on the way, need money for school, and a new engine for my truck. No pics, camera broken. Won't last long!

    Too funny. Those guys at the bottom of the hill were lucky the damn thing didn't land on them.
