Title: Laeveld afk@k - A photo report
Post by: Noneking on April 02, 2018, 09:35:02 pm
@Just Blip It! invited us for a LDBA recce ride. Little did we we know that it would turn into an afk@k of note, somehow landing up on the Hazyview Enduro Red route with 2x 990’s, KTM 625, KTM 690 and Husky 501

@Just Blip It! taking a break. By this time most of us had run out of water to drink. I polished 3 litres and started showing signs of heatstroke and dehydration..........and things just got worse from here!

We soon started seeing markers for the Lowveld Enduro club’s Hazyview Enduro Red route. We were almost certainly not supposed to be here.....

How did the 990 cope with the slow riding and engine temp. I guess the fans worked overtime?

Both 990's did extremely well. Most of the difficult sections were downhill where they switched off engines and went down against compression. Two very skilled riders!

Joh...Joh, I stumbled across this video last night. Love this video. This is serious difficult and technical riding. That sound of the big 990`s, wow. Seems as if all the bikes takes a beating..can`t imagine how a big GS will be able to go into these tiny spaces and traverse the steep hills. But it is the ability of the rider that makes the difference I suppose. Eagerly awaiting the new video!

Yeah, a lot of those ruts a big GS will simple not fit into with those protruding pods......everything else is up to rider skill and a GS with good rider should be able to go almost everywhere we went on the day
