Splash, it looks like you are always on vacation. If you’re not riding bikes, you travel.  :thumleft:
Social media - what can I say. Anyone want to trade? Everything though! Am happy summer has arrived.

From your pictures I get the idea that these sports / adventures are big business over there. They are well attended and organised. To be honest, I did not think that there would be that many people participating (I did not think them to be that dare devilish)  - seems like quite a misconception I had there.

Unfortunately that also adds to the cost. Nothing is cheap. My Hobby class entry is €35 without any timing. This area is know for its enduro's. Around Lommel will be more motocross. They did confiscate 10 bikes around Antwerp's harbour nature area the other day.

Slipper rocks and my gear lever did not hit it off well and the relationship fell apart!

Thanks again for some great action pictures and lovely scenery.


Do they give out trophies at these events? Do you have? Please show us.

Cruising around on my 500. Not sure I want to race the Alpha. Will more than likely make me look like a Zero. No, no trophies. Sorry.
