    Need to redo that ride with the new rig. Would be way less dabs, because this one is heavier. Needed some water bottle ballast on that last trip. It was too light.

    Was watching these guys last night when i got back. Caught my eye cos its got a vstrom and a ktm but the scenery is amazing and roads they ride them on are gnarly. Well worth a look.

    Cool
    That screen constantly jabbing towards the rider freaks me out a bit though. I've seen some serious bleeding from a tall screen off road..

    looks worse than it is cos he's using a chest harness for the camera. I recall a time when I went over the bars on my 990. Completely cleared the stock screen which surprised me a bit. Came round a corner a bit hot and ended up in a drain. The 990 stopped almost instantly in the mud and I ejected and landed on my back in the long grass blissfully looking into the heavens with not a scratch. Wish all my unplanned off's ended like that :fpalm

    Whenever I see this lady I suspect it's Megs Braap in a wig.
