You can get away with excuses once, but what about the second time? And what if the weather is pristine?
Night and day, now I just need to work on my speed. These bikes can handle anything, and I think this type of riding is 10% basic skills, 10% advanced riding skills, and 80% pure balls.
I made a short video on the second day. The battery ran out, so I didn't capture any good crashes, of which there were a few. Skip in a minute to see actual riding.
This event is put on by KTM Saitama. One of the highlights (for riders of higher skill level) is a class with Mr. Koikeda, the All-Japan Enduro champ.
This is like getting half a day with Tiger Woods... except Tiger Woods doesn't warn you that the nearest hospital is an hour away.
A lot of orange.
KTM people are very brand loyal. There are even accessories for your best friend.
Stay safe ya'll.
On a related note, can someone donate $10,000 to my paypal account so I can get a (used) KTM 990 Supermoto bike?
