My GSA took me 792km before some dude pulled out in front of me and I T-boned him. Waiting for the damage but really hope they scrap the bike.

Aggenee, you ok?

Gifberg and Ouberg pass this morning. The road on top of the mountain, connecting the 2 passes were very challenging due to some very dry sandy stretches. I had a few scary moments, to say the least. We fell over at one point, could not hold the bike upright. Luckily it was in the soft sand and there were no damage to anything. I deflated the front and rear as we were still running on 3 bar and 2.5 bar respectively. Took the front to 1.8bar and the rear to 2.2 bar. Went a little better, but it was not great. The OEM rubber are definitely road tyres and should be used on hard packed surfaces in my opinion (read deflated ego here  :biggrin:).
Here are some pictures from start to where we had a well deserved cold one and some lunch.

PS.
In the photo of the little pool, you will see a snake in the water. This un-identified snake (about 45cm in length) stayed underwater for a good 5 minutes trying to catch small frogs. It was the first time I witnessed a snake staying under for so long.
