WTF - Treadmill!  AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
"Leap of Faith"


I was looking for motocross clothing, something deceptively hard to find in SL I'm finding. But the keywords brought me to this sim, called "T & D Motocross, Off Road Testing Grounds" They have dirt bikes you can borrow, and run around their 3D track. It's got 3 jumps, this one is the first. And first time I hit it, the reaction was "WOAH!". I didn't really look over the track before I hit this jump

If you wipe out, you fly off the bike, which goes in a direction you can't predict it seems. It's an amazing thing to try, because it reacts a lot like a regular dirt bike and racing tactics work here. Throttle open mid-turn for traction, brake before you corner... It's wonderfully challenging.

But if you go, pack a parachute. That +50M drop is a LITTLE scary....

Did you ever find the motorcross clothing?

well, yes and no.

Yes, I did find SOME. But it was in a gay fetish shop, and had someone else's name written across the backside. I did eventually find ONE place that has some motocross gear, but honestly it's less than impressive.

I found only one that really kinda looks like the real deal, and this is it : https://xstreetsl.com/modules.php?name=Marketplace&file=item&ItemID=1380452

I also got a seet of "Racing leathers", in red/white/blue as well, with a no-mod helmet which isn't good for furries. I can't find a link to those. There's probably more out there too, I just haven't found them.
