A few months ago Portuguese stunt-rider Ricardo Domingos competed in the Baja 500 Portalegre on a Suzuki GSX-R1000 – and we’ve got our hands on some video of him in action.

Después de la conversión a tierra del 911 GT3 de los hermanos Vallejo creíamos que nada podría sorprendernos… Nos equivocamos estrepitosamente…Y es que ver una Suzuki GSXR 1000RR como la de Ricardo Domingos participando en una carrera como la Baja Portalegre, cuando menos, sorprende…

Finishing 24th out of 70 in the amateur category – it may come as a surprise that Domingos only made a handful of changes to his GSX-R1000 ahead of the competition, adding a set of off-road rubber, high handlebars, and a new, less aggressive engine map. But as you can see in the videos – it didn’t seem to hold him back, as he picked his way through the course on arguably one of the least practical bikes for the job. Fair play Domingos.
