toe ek daai eerste foto sien toe dink ek: 'And on that day, no clutches were spared'

well done, lyk epic.
hoe het julle daai baie erge climb gedoen, die eerste foto met Mark. Momentum en gehoop jy vrek nie en val om en keer dat jou bike saam jou af kom nie, of het julle maar mekaar gehelp en so meter op n slag gevorder?
Almal was maar op hul eie aangewese. Ek kan nie vir almal praat nie, maar ek kon met momentum opkom tot ek stupid fout gemaak het en fiets gestol het.

Ek weet die 790 het reeds shaky reputasie vir clutch issues, maar die twee manne het daai clutches al vroegoggend begin verniel. Onkunde oor rider modes en zero meganiese simpatie het beide se probleem veroorsaak in my opinie.

die 790 het mos minder torque by laer revs, so hoort dan makliker te stol wat meen mens moet maar die clutch roer. Sou jy nie reken dit die 890 (plus jy het mos sprockets verander?) vs 790 (met dalk standaard sprocket?) wat ook groot impak op clutch abuse gemaak het nie?

Of eerder daai goed saam mechanical sympathy skep perfect storm?

Presies net so…..

MAAR!!
Mense maak uit asof die 790 nie teen lae revs kan ry nie. Dis nonsens. Oorgenoeg krag, miskien nie so lekker bruikbaar teen lae revs soos 990 of 1200 GS nie, maar genoeg om enige terrein gemaklik te ry. MITS jy jou bike en sy settings verstaan en reg gebruik.

If you ever meet this man, don’t believe a word he says…… at least not about a route you’re about to embark on with him! Run for the hills!

We eventually get back onto tar again outside Barberton .  We enjoy a very late lunch and a couple of beers before heading home for a well deserved evening on the couch…..
