Title: DeWildt 3 Fences and more on the Adventure bike
Post by: Minxy on August 27, 2017, 09:11:31 am
I haven't posted any ride reports in a while. This ride was special so I thought I'd share :)

In preparation for Honda Quest happening in Namibia next month, I've been busy training and making necessary preparations. Lodewyk from Basefit recommended we do some of the riverbeds in Dewildt, including 3 Fences on the big adventure to better prepare for what Northern Namibia will throw at us. It was a tough day, but we got through without tooooo much trouble. I have gotten new respect for my KTM 950 Adventure after this ride and cannot believe what these big adventure bikes are capable of!!!!

I've made a video of the ride which I'm sharing below, will post some photos soon! Will let the video do the talking for now :ricky:
