Missing footage


&t=73s

Brilliant riding NK  :thumleft: Don't you guys pick up a lot of punctures ?
No we donít.  The MotoZs are amazing on the big bikes. Iíve not had a puncture on the tubeless 790 in 12000km.
Most guys run heavy duty tubes or Tubliss system on the smaller bikes

Edit: Most punctures we see on route are still due to snake bites

Cool thanks  :thumleft:

Met daai veldjie op ons stoep is ons nogal geseend.

Maar net hierna het ek vir mamma en sussie ook op 990 gesit en so saam die 50 om die blok gery, baie lekker, ek voel nie dit was te waaghalsig nie, maar reken iewers gaan iemand nog op my af gaan oor veiligheid.


Manne op die plase...waardeer wat julle het :)

Good idea, I need to do something similar as the stones really chip the underside of the bike

At the end April I had a freak accident on my XR650 which resulted in major knee reconstruction surgery.  Well, 4.5 months later, still in rehab, I am finally able to get back on the bike on took the 1150 out for breakfast run this morning with a mate.  And it felt like coming up for air...

I also did a few kilometres on that R Nine T Scrambler which put a huge smile on my face, it pulls like a jet plane compared to the 2001 1150.   :ricky:

Hmmm, I also suffered a terrible triad knee injury last year, also from a silly 30km/h fall. 14 months, 1 x 3.5hr knee op, 1x1hr  follow up orthroscopy 9 months after, and maaaaaaany physio and bio sessions later I am almost totally recovered - cant run yet, but cycling is fine.
Oh, and I was back on a 3 day, 1150km mostly gravel trip 5 months after the 1st op  :biggrin:
1 lesson learnt...
Enjoy the riding and all the best with the recovery!

Yip, that's the one, O'Donoghue's Terrible Triad.  Luckily there is no follow up arthroscopy for me, I am sure that sucked big time.  Good luck with getting back to running  :thumleft: I was unfortunately told in no uncertain terms that my running days are over, which is quite a bitter pill to swallow for me.  And yes, lesson learnt for me as well - enjoy life while you can!
