Thread: "Challenging" off road ride.

  1. #1

    "Challenging" off road ride.

    Once again steve has asked me to lead one of the 'Raost ride outs.

    My ride is supposed to be challenging, and the plan is to keep a reasonable pace. It isn't a race. I just fancy getting out and covering some distance.

    To give you some idea, last year we covered over 130 miles -we all went to dorset and back,

    but this year i have to get everyone back in good time for the Ben's dirty bike contest, so i'm not sure the distance will be so big.

    The presence of 450x's will probably play a large part in this also

    It is predominantly a pogo ride, but both Horse and Wreford got around without problems last year aboard a 1200 adventure and Airhead respectively.

    So who is in??

    funny - I already have that problem on my HP and GSA when the suspension is set up properly

    You'll have to do what I do and practice the in motion dismount
