Old Mill Drift on the G450X
« on: May 07, 2019, 12:54:35 pm »
So last weekend six lads, oldish lads, took the bikes to OMD to see if we could conquer the wild. Naturally we had to include some KTM's and a kawa for good measure.

I got my 1200GSA up as far as the gentle-being in the green tutu in pic 3, which begs the question......  :patch:

You have bigger balls than most if you chose a 1200 as your preferred weapon to tackle the beast. The green tutu and pink panty on helmet was the floating trophy for the clumsiest clot on the mountain.

It was an error in judgement, I assure you, and not a mistake to make more than once - needless to say, OMD is still on my "to do" list......

Sounds like it has gotten a bit more difficult than a few years ago. I have done it twice on a 1200GS but just burning to test the 1190 out over there!
