She's gunning it at this stage, doing great with that little 250, kudu's to her.   :deal:

Will have to see what the bike does in the dune sections though.   :patch:

I'd rather be on a nimble 250 than a 200+kg bike in the dunes. I believe it was not that long, not a full stage just a portion of it.
She has travelled round the world solo, I have been around the block a few times in comparison. I ain't gonna criticize.

Always look forward to her uploads.

Must say, this is quite something.

Itchy, on a dead bog standard Honda CRF250L, makes mincemeat out of all that Ready-to-race weaponry around her??
That must have been difficult.


No. She seems to have easily beaten the rally KTM's. :pot:

Well done to her but lets be honest adv bike class is a world apart from a real rally stage, certainly what we have seen so far that was a typical Sunday out ride. I reckon she thinks she is faster than she "really" is  :deal: I would also rather be on a 250 than a big ADV bike, I'm surprised people think a 250 can not do 700km in a day  ???

Her participants are very amazed at what she is doing. The one guy at the fuel stop could not keep quiet.

He might also have been hitting on her...who knows?

The ADV class only did the rally route on Day 1. For the rest of the "rally" they rode as spectators on an alternative route only venturing onto actual rally route a few times apparently. More than one person I spoke to reckoned the bigger bikes were the weapons of choice for the adv class. Large distances and very little technical riding.

For sure, she is not real rally class standard at the mo, still, she improved a hell of a lot, and good for her if she think she is going fast, it can only boost he confidence.

Yes she mentioned she did a lot more off road riding in this series and you can clearly see how she is getting faster and riding with confidence. She is getting addicted to dirt just like us all  :ricky:

The Honda CRF 300 Rally would be the ideal bike. :snorting: with a little bit of extras fitted. or even the 450.

I reckon Noraly is doing well - definitely way outside her comfort zone.  I've rarely seen much more than 60km/h on her speedo on her normal videos - because she is travelling the world at a safe, relaxed pace while focused on making videos, swopping batteries, using a drone and giving the kind of commentary that appeals to as many people as possible - this is after all her only source of income.
At the rally she is doing 100km/h plus in some places all of a sudden.  But let's admit that she is no Kirsten Landman or Taye Perry  ;D ;D
As a man thinketh, so he becomes...

Yes, she did increase in ability, and obviously confidence. Quite a step to participate in this sort of ride, even if it is watered down.
