Ha ha ha... Love the way we giggle at one another... I have got GJ on camera doing his little giggle at that.. Great sports guys, being able to laugh at one another, yet prepared to help at any cost...
BTW... I lost my wallet on Sunday.. I got a mail now from my lady saying it has been found.. Great start to a long work trip...  :biggrin:

Indeed, could have ended in some major tears, being a short arse this clip reminds me of when I tried to squeeze past from my gate electric gate before it closed... epic fail... Put the bike down gently... wife and kids hosing themselves in the car behind me...  :imaposer: :xxbah:

That was me. I over compensated for the drop into the concrete ditch, and got it all crossed wheel.

Almost caught it, got a massive cramp in the left calf and had to drop it right there.

The WR makes that road seem way to straight. so I was looking for something more challenging. And along comes Gideon.  :ricky:

Of course I have to go and try that again!

Funny, but the KLR never seemed this fast when I had it :biggrin:

A few pics...

Check out that headlamp. Even the bulb has been flattened. Two lessons.. A cover could have worked.. And don't ride behind huge horsepower motorcycles on trails covered in anything that the huge horsepower motorcycle can throw..  :imaposer:

I am busy working on a video clip from the ride...
