RAD Ride

RAD800 took me on an excursion through his backyard yesterday.

As you can see from the pics it was fairly wet and lots of fun.
Sand/rocks mainly but enough mud to keep things interesting.

As RAD said, we both had a bit of a lie down here and there due to traction problems, but he staid nice and dry in his gucci bmw clothes
And as you'll also notice, i was the one smart enough not to fall off in front of a camera




































A great ride with only one fatality.

A kooka hit me in the helmet at around 100 clicks and cracked the visor and knocked off the side plate of my nolan flipface.
Expensive possibly?

Apart from a headache all was well.

It was slippery as hell with the scorpion mt90 rear/mefo explorer front, and RAD's 1/2 bald knobbies (mitas) struggled a bit as well.

I'm glad the 690 was so light as i dropped it a couple of times.
Off camera of course


Oh, and Chef Gareth.
We had a shit time so you didn't miss anything really.




Sorry you couldn't come, and we'll catch you on the next one.

RAD says there MITAS.
They had a bit of wear but did the job quite well.
He said he has been very happy with them

That was great - especially the 'Just stay there' comment!
