Day out

Wow we had an extreme ride out over the beacons.....

I trashed my beta on the "wall of death" - a bloke went over the edge several years back ......it was game over!!!!

I also got wedged with a tree and the side panel snapped - I little suprised how brittle they look BUT it did get bent badly.....

The beta has been in many vertical positions today......Fallen off about 6 times but being so slippery and the challenges we took on, it was not such as bad result .....

six of us started and only 3 finished.....

She also overheated on the ancient " london Rd".....

We had a Pari Dakar guy with us and by lunch time he'd had enough

The Beta performed superbly in treacherous conditions ,so smooth on rock climbs.....BUT 450 power does have its downsides - tried to ride a very thin ledge but 3 times she slipped into the gulley below...My mate got it thro for me luckily as it was dark and I had no strength left.

Now I need to order some spares......
