Yamaha YXZ 1000R Struggle

Someone has decided to put the YXZ through it's paces at the Moonlight offroad park.
What happens next? See for yourself.

that's how you know they had a good time out there, going up that set of rocks with some struggle but still getting through, this has probably been the hardest i've seen a YXZ being pushed.

Yes, yes he did. Was it worth it? Most likely. This is the second time (as far as I know) where a YXZ was damaged while attempting to go up steep hills.

Just find it odd why people would take a high revving manual transmission sport SxS and beat it against rocks.

People want to test the limits of machines like this. These machines are supposed to be able to do a lot, so people think that means everything.

Pushing things like this to the limit is always fun, especially to the point that things start to break

At the part where he really tried to push it to the extent tires were smoking up, yeah.
