Lesotho recce ride
« on: October 06, 2019, 08:12:45 pm »
I am taking a group of riders on an enduro tour in Lesotho next weekend.
We will be spending 2 and a half days of awesome riding in the mountain kingdom.
Here are some photo's of the recce ride.

My little KLE would like that :thumleft: :thumleft:

Plus minus what would a trip like this cost?

Looks Awful.
Would hate to be you.....
 :biggrin:

So, more seriously, G650 X-Challenge - would it be suitable for something like this at 144kg dry?
What fuel range is required?

PS - just saw the link, looks like he X will be OK, but fuel range approx?

@ClimbingTurtle I do adventure and enduro tours. The enduro trips are for bikes not bigger than 500cc (at max Husky 610 but that is pushing the limits). So your bike will fall in the adventure category. Having said that, 90% of what you see in the photo's above has been done on adventure bikes.
I look at the group and adjust the tracks accordingly.

Cheers, thanks for the info - the Gx is similar to the TE610 ito of size, power, travel etc., but me as a rider, lets just say we would be better off at the Adventure end of the scale.....  :biggrin:
