210 dirt kms on Saturday including 60kms of Riverbed !!!
another 100 kms on Sunday, and i can officially say .....WOW wasnt expecting that ?!?!
The bike is so steady and confident on the dirt, makes it an absolute pleasure off road.
at first , left traction on full and then switched over to 2 and then off for the riverbed sand !
left ABS ON as a tester.... works just fine on the dirt too. ( just cant get any decent slides going )

AMAZING MOTORCYCLE !!!!
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

 :thumleft: :thumleft:



Glad you are enjoying your motorcycle . Thanks for sharing  :thumleft:
