The 690 test begins

The next series of vids will be focussed on the 2012 690 Enduro R. Here is the first of that series.

Don't hesitate to shoot me questions about this bike.

Look forward to reading/watching all about this bike. Your 'short term' local tests but more importantly your 'long term' ride home... can't wait for either!

New Zealand ride January 2012

I've got a lot on at the moment, but I'd promised my riding mates and their sons that I would post some video of our recent South Island New Zealand ride.

As you'll see, this has quickly been thrown together. That aside it gives you an insight into the experience of riding in NZ.

I'll be back there again. I just love it.

Edog,

I've had a look at the Highcountry website. Which tour is the one in your video?

Thanks
JTB

Hi JTB,

Here is the link.

http://www.highcountry.co.nz/High_Co...ntry_Home.html

The thing that attracted me to them was the extensive access they have to farm land, so bikes only ride on the trails a couple of times a year. They are also legal in terms of access to conservation land.

I highly recommend them. As you can see I've gone twice now. Next time I go, I'm going to do an Adventure ride with them. The South Island is just magnificent.

Up at Louee

We were up at Louee testing the 690 yesterday and I went over and filmed some riders on the ramp.

This guy nearly landed on me.



Don't know who he is yet, but that was close. Look at the rocks and shit that were thrown up when he lands.

And a good wheel stand from New Zealand.

Last vid of the NZ series

A rushed job, but needed to get it up for my mates before heading OS. This is the second and final part of our recent NZ adventure in January 2012.

A number of people are asking me about the music, the artist is Lloyd Spiegel from the album Tangled Brew that can be purchased from Black Market Music.

Final shoot for 690 nearly done

The filming for the test of the 690 is nearly complete. Should have a vid in the next week and a bit. The 690 has proved to be a real weapon.

Just two days of filming left and then I'll start on making a longer comprehensive review of the bike, with comments on views from a number of riders including, Reeksy, Matt, Philippe, and some others of varying skills and ages.

Here is a video teaser showing the bike in action in some of the areas we tested her.

John Reeks buries my gopro

Last day of filming with the 690. Will be a little sad to send it back. That aside, now I've got to put the review together.
