Sand Training @ Maraisburg
« on: January 28, 2012, 03:00:58 pm »
Went to Maraisburg on the big bikes for the first time a few weeks ago. It was very different than riding the little plastics, but it was still awesome!

I quickly learned that a 200kg bike gets stuck a lot easier! And that Anakees are not made for sand riding!

I'm one of those that live in both the BMW and KTM camps. I can decide which brand is the kak one for the day and which one is the best for the day! That way I always win!
