I didn't see any Kangaroos.
Loads more finesse this time. Nearly doubled speed on this run. Max the bike out for a good part of it now.
Be great to ride with some of you guys. @Mikey P cold give me a few pointers. Gotta try and ride more with my toes on the pegs and not stand flat footed.
You're doing great!
Grant, you are one guy that pushes the boundaries and doesn't let life slow him down. Hats off buddy!
Please post a pic of you sitting on that Kawi
While too small, I suspect you're better off on it safty wise.
Why did you pick that bike?
Because I was sure I could learn to absolutely wring its’ neck. I saw how popular with adults they are States side. YouTube has plenty of footage of dudes riding these things sick...
I wanted a new bike. It was cheap at $3k.
No clutch to worry about the clutch is an auto clutch. Come off the throttle and the cluch is in. Get back on the throttle and the clutch is out.
Like my porty it fits on the cab’s lift ramp so I can be driven out to my drop location.
Weight, if it falls on me I am super confident I can get it off me.
Electric and kick starting.
Only 4 gears to worry about, all of them up.
It made all this work. Good machine too, known to be reliable.
Just sold my 1800 Goldwing 960 lbs to heavy to hold up. Now riding a 07 Yamaha 1300 v star nice bike fast & light only 680 lbs very fast looks like a Harley sounds like one also so i'm back in the saddle again and having fun @ 76 yrs young. jz.
You're doing great with it, just take it easy on the tricks!
Probably don't need this conversion kit in Australia but it would have been a great investment for around here this year.
Looks like a good time. My 2 cents: your front tire will go where you look. Watch the vid and you can see you are tracking ruts and pot holes with your eyes and going there. Looks like a great bike. Have fun.
Yeah, but what if he cant see?
He is doing amazing for being blind. I can't imagine doing it in his condition.
I can see well enough to see the oncoming surface change. I simply couldn’t ride if I didn’t have that info.
I’m going to try and choose the clearer path by remaining focused on the line I want.
I’ve already had a red hot go at counter steering at speed. Its coming together.
Man. Talk about over thinking things. I guess I’m lucky. I grew up riding in the dirt. Never really gave it any thought. I just fell down and got back up. Eventually I stopped falling down.
You really called ot.
Steering with my knees seems to be helping to break the habit.
I try to watch what is going on as far ahead as I can. But obviously I still need to periodically scan closer in too.
Yeah look where you want to go not where you are
if you find yourself in a rut or hole where you dont want to be, provided your body position is correct chances are the bike will pull you out of there
