    Raise the front wheel(gas) and try let it skip the last 1/3 of the obstacle. When rear wheel hits the log keep up the gas. Just like you still are wheeling. Then you will exit the log with front and rear aligned or the front lifted a bit. You are very close.

    Thanks Bruno

    Here's another one from the next day.

    I was tootleing around, doing the usual falling and stuff when some guys asked if I wanted to follow them. The one chap on a 690 the others on their platics. They had carved out a new enduro loop.

    These bikes can go a LOT further than most think. The plastics guys were amazed.

    The one chap was certain that my bike was more a trench digger than bike.

    I have 2 questions. First what tires do you have there, and second what is that button you are pushing sometimes in the left side of the handlebar.

    I have Michelin Deserts on both ends.

    The button is the remote for the Pov1 video camera.

    Elias, I suspect that you fool yourself by the easiness that he seems to be riding on sand in his first video..this is not the type of sand we have in Greece...ours is almost unridable....it is too deep and too soft....desert sand on the other hand can get very deep at spots, but is mainly spread across hard packed terrain underneath...of course deep ruts form when too many vehicles pass from the same location but overall is much easier than the sand we get to ride here (or try)..try the beach at Agia Anna, Eyoia...it is the location where Dakar winner Orfanos is practicing..it is quite difficult to stay "afloat" there with the heavy 99x...not to take anything away from Kamanya's riding...:clap for the countersteering session near the end...that must have been fun to say the least...

    A great little access road to a quarry we play in.

    A bit of volume is not a bad thing.

    didn't realize there was a video thread for the 950!!!

    little video of some single track last sunday with a buddy. I am on my new (to me!) 950 Super Enduro and my buddy is on his 690 Enduro. Was fun to play a bit since i had someone with me to help me pick up the bike in case of "accident". :D

    Was on my own in a remote beautifull valley called The Baviaanskloof in South Africa. Some of the water crossings.

    Just before the water crossings above, I came across this chap.

    He was not acting like most do - they run away - as did the one on the right.

    I hope you don't mind seeing a different sort of 950 KTM in this thread!

    Hey Kamanya....how do you get such good sound with the vio? Do you use an external mic? No matter what I do I can't get as good sound as that, too much wind noise still. Great videos, I definately got some more ideas for mounting places from you :thumbup

    I have the 5m extension and wear a bum bag that holds the recorder. The microphone is just poking out of the zips and is kept there with a zip tie. The reason that the sound is so clear is that I keep the bag behind me, so there is hardly any wind.

    When I had the shorter cable I routed it into the helmet, this also was a good clear sound set up and enabled me to commentate too. See here

    Sadly a few weeks ago I ripped the cable off and lost the head. Vio do not stock heads or cable anymore. So I have a recorder and nothing to video with. Ebay time.
