Crossing Obstacles

Every season, we talk about technique for crossing obstacles and every year I get to listen to some rube explain how pointless this exercise is. I bet this Mexican Presidential guard wishes he'd practiced. This is just one more demonstration of the inadequacies of cruiser design.

  1. Severely inadequate rear suspension. The front absorbed it fairly well. The 2" of rear travel had no chance though. I doubt perfect technique could have saved him at that speed. I laughed when the sixth officer nearly lost it crossing the same speed bump.

  2. Suspension and technique will buy you a lot of leeway on a speed bump. This guy didn't have either going for him.

Disagree? Bring it on. Have more to add? Feel free to set me straight. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't do a great job of figuring out which Anonymous commenters are actually real people, not Russians or Chinese bots. I'm pretty ruthless about spam-labeling anonymous posts. If you have something worth saying, you shouldn't be afraid of using your ID.
