Toni Bou is probably the world's best motorcyclist.

World  champion in what I think is the most difficult motorcycle discipline there is; observed trials.

Pol Tarres, who did similar sort of stuff on a T7, is also from the trials world, and related to Jorge Tarres.

He can't, he is recuperating from a broken leg achieved while riding trials on a big bike...

Wel, eerlik gese het ek ook al klomp van die goed gedoen wat daai trial ryer doen.
Ek's n swak ryer maar steeds, ek het dit gedoen!
Verskil is net die ou, Tony, doen dit als agter mekaar soos in een enkel vloeiende ding, en my moves was isolated goed, snaaks genoeg almal voorafgaande aan of tydens n plaas koop proses.
En moenie eers praat oor kadwaahs nie, handlebars/handgueards maak heeeeeel ander geluide!  :P

As jy mooi kyk is die verskil nog baie groter......Pol is nie Bou se gat werd met ry nie, en die T7 doen heelwat moeiliker goed.

Nogal opmerklik dat tussen al die bikes is al die BMW toertjies maar net wheelies op die teerpad, behalwe vir die een shot waar die ou amper op sy gesig val van daai kar af terwyl die Honda, Yamaha en KTM's meer behoorlikke goed doen...  :peepwall: 

Ook opmerklik hoe die Honda, Yamaha en KTM's redelik dieselfde vermo wys itv wat die bikes kan doen en dit nogal in die hande van 'n verskeidenheid ryers.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

I think that Africa Twin makes Bou look quite mediocre.  We have all seen his exceptional skills on a proper bike but if this was the first time I ever saw him, I would find him underwhelming.

Sure, he makes the bike look good. But the bike bike makes him look crap.
