Live in Antwerp (Wilrijk), ride a G650X. I only ride in the Kempen because there are the only few tracks I know.
Should start exploring more!

The Kempen - interesting! I went exploring there once, many fun looking trials. A lot are forbidden for bikes no? A Belgian motocrosser told me once they go there a lot to play in the sand?

Hey vriendschapppen,

Can't we set a date to go and play in the Kempen, if there's somebody who knows some trails, we could make a afternoon out of it .

My tractor is always ready to race, but me not always, I have limited skills off road, but always willing to learn.

Let's pick a date... you name a place and time .

I have some tracks in the Kempen, not 100% legal, it is still Belgium, but quite ok. I can ride on weekdays as well. It's difficult to pick a date right now because of the weather.

Collected three crates Westvleteren 12 last month. Took me almost 1000 attempts to place my order on the "beerphone"

Grimbergen and Leffe taste like tapwater after some Westvleteren.

Well, on saturday and sunday you can go 'on place' to taste the 12.
After a few drinks, the bike is still OK, the driver sometimes suffers from a 'off-idle hickup'...
But there's good (in my opinion bad) news: due to the elevating costs to the monastry, the 'Paters' are thinking about a higher production; a rumour is that they are in negociation with a big supermarket (Colruyt) for distribution of their famous beer.
If this comes true, it will never be the same again.
