    RAD800 took me on an excursion through his backyard yesterday.

    As you can see from the pics it was fairly wet and lots of fun.
    Sand/rocks mainly but enough mud to keep things interesting.

    As RAD said, we both had a bit of a lie down here and there due to traction problems, but he staid nice and dry in his gucci bmw clothes:lol3
    And as you'll also notice, i was the one smart enough not to fall off in front of a camera:rofl

    A great ride with only one fatality.

    A kooka hit me in the helmet at around 100 clicks and cracked the visor and knocked off the side plate of my nolan flipface.
    Expensive possibly?

    Apart from a headache all was well.

    It was slippery as hell with the scorpion mt90 rear/mefo explorer front, and RAD's 1/2 bald knobbies (mitas) struggled a bit as well.

    I'm glad the 690 was so light as i dropped it a couple of times.
    Off camera of course:D


    Oh, and Chef Gareth.
    We had a shit time so you didn't miss anything really.:D




    Sorry you couldn't come, and we'll catch you on the next one.

    RAD says there MITAS.
    They had a bit of wear but did the job quite well.
    He said he has been very happy with them
