Onto The Dirt Roads

Nice day for Sunday country drive…

Training day with the help of a very experienced rider Sam.  And what a great teacher he is!!!  Intention was to learn how to handle the bike better on dirt roads, since I will be facing a fair few of them over the year or so..

Learning how to correct the bike as it swings around on the slippery gravel.. and how best to balance and distribute my weight.

I enjoyed it more than I expected and have to say that after yesterday I think I like riding on gravel roads better than bitumen!

Probably shouldn’t say that too quickly.  But more training to come with Sam, and more intense next time..  so – stay tuned!!

p.s.  Sam rides a BMW 650 Dakar.
