The dip.

I was nervous, Andre had fallen and he rides way better than me.
The drop is steep and high, If he wasn't there as back up, I wouldn't have even considered it.
But it went ok.
I even offered him lessons afterwards, but he hasn't a teachable spirit like me, haha

The return was quite simple, but in the easy part I decided on a rest
Enjoy

been studying Google earth and found where I can try from the other side one day.
Will be interesting to see how close We can get to where we stopped.

Nice, Thump...thanks for sharing. I see in the video, you seem to tap the GPS screen occasionally. What are you doing there? I am just curios. :thumleft:

When I'm big I want to be a tappiologist.

I'm not sure, it may be the power to the GPS goes of sometimes, and it asks if it must stay on.
then I click yes.
