    It was. I rode the AT 2 days at the rally and the 790 2 days in Utah on the way home.

    Well... dont be to impressed. I made 3 run ups to it and stopped before I screwed up the courage to hit it. I hadn't hopped anything of any account on the 790 before this and I couldn't get the vision of smashing the stock splash plate onto the log from a blown launch.

    Figured I better break the ice now while at home rather than on some remote trail. ;)

    Some more pictures from last month, when the steering head bearings were still loose and both the oil and water were leaking. :D

    (with the loose steering head bearings this road was not nearly as much fun as it might look like on the picture...)

    Gawd, that's beautiful!!

    You're lucky though. With those loose bearings of yours I was sure you'd get lost...

    I was on Sommeiller and Assietta the day before, July 12th. I had Jafferau planned for the 13th, but some kind of stomach bug got the better of me and I had to skip it. :uhoh

    Awesome picture @tshansen

    Sorry you missed Jafferau.
    It was the wrong weekend to be there. There was the Stella Alpina Rally and the climb to Sommelier was beyond crowded.

    Stella is getting too popular for its own good, I am afraid. The 12th, however, was still all quiet, I was there in the morning and did not meet many other riders. And the weather was much better than anticipated. I was a bit bummed about skipping Jafferau, Mont Cenis, Iseran etc. this year as these are some of my favorite passes, but I am sure there will be another time. :thumb

    Thats some pretty flat mud, there. Try those mud puddles in tight steep rutted trails, and the chances of sliding out on those karoos go way up.

    Yeah, no ruts, no napping, just good controllable drifting...
    But right, gotta hate Karoos in mud (and sand and and and...)

    Talking ruts... I've posted it here somewhere before:
