I had to test my new Contour+ camera.
So I mounted it on the inside of the passenger footpeg of my Super Enduro and made a little run through the local woods

I really like the viewpoint.

Like that view point also have used the luggage rack on the adv but that sets the viewpoint a bit to far back, this is better, here it is embedded:

Thanks. It's most definitely the ride, not the rider

How do I do that?

Raise the front wheel(gas) and try let it skip the last 1/3 of the obstacle. When rear wheel hits the log keep up the gas. Just like you still are wheeling. Then you will exit the log with front and rear aligned or the front lifted a bit. You are very close.

Thanks Bruno

Here's another one from the next day.

I was tootleing around, doing the usual falling and stuff when some guys asked if I wanted to follow them. The one chap on a 690 the others on their platics. They had carved out a new enduro loop.

These bikes can go a LOT further than most think. The plastics guys were amazed.

The one chap was certain that my bike was more a trench digger than bike.

I have 2 questions. First what tires do you have there, and second what is that button you are pushing sometimes in the left side of the handlebar.

I have Michelin Deserts on both ends.

The button is the remote for the Pov1 video camera.

Elias, I suspect that you fool yourself by the easiness that he seems to be riding on sand in his first video..this is not the type of sand we have in Greece...ours is almost unridable....it is too deep and too soft....desert sand on the other hand can get very deep at spots, but is mainly spread across hard packed terrain underneath...of course deep ruts form when too many vehicles pass from the same location but overall is much easier than the sand we get to ride here (or try)..try the beach at Agia Anna, Eyoia...it is the location where Dakar winner Orfanos is practicing..it is quite difficult to stay "afloat" there with the heavy 99x...not to take anything away from Kamanya's riding... for the countersteering session near the end...that must have been fun to say the least...

MotoHooligan airbox + weak battery + having fun with water = walking 2 miles back to home.

A great little access road to a quarry we play in.

A bit of volume is not a bad thing.
