Tackled the hardest track on tour today. Porika track between the Mangles Valley and St Anaud.
Wet Steep Slippery clay base, with heaps of exposed rocks, and wash outs.
It was an challenge for both bike and rider, but both survived unscathed.
Wee Stroms, big Beemers etc have come to greif on this track often.(even DR650s can struggle. But the Scrambler pushed through. Being able to get both feet down quickly, and the lovely torquey engine made the differance. (plus the Ohlins kit).
Any bike jouno who slagged this bike out as a pretender, can take a flying jump into another career, as they obviously havn't the skills or knowledge to commentate accurately.
Danger Dave preaches the truth. Preach brother. Preach.
