video: Taking F800's on an enduro ride - and breaking a foot

This past weekend we hit the Maraisburg dunes in Johannesburg which are a know spot for motocross and enduro bikes. We had a friend who showed us the ropes a few weeks earlier, and we thought it would be a good idea to head over and try the routes out on our BMW F800GS bikes.

The actual riding area is really close - about 15mins from where we stay and once you are there it's an awesome playground to learn how to handle your bike in tricky situations.

We played around in some of the sand pits and tracks. On our way to get to the actual dune ride one of the guys in our party hit a rock that was sticking out from an embankment and ended up breaking a bone in his foot.

Needless to say we had to end the ride there and head back. He ended up getting surgery that evening in ER. Sucks pretty bad as he is out for a good 3 months, but we at least got a good video out of it!

We should have a full ride report with pics coming up on our adventure website and possibly here as well.

Enjoy it - I'm not 100% sure how to embed Youtube video's, so you'll just have to click here to read: BMW F800GS ride in Maraisburg

Enjoying the ride on such a nice playground and then sudden breaking up with a foot, may be a big pain now :(
