Big bike rally raid in Portugal

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!
Hope you enjoy this small video I put together to share my first road book rally raid with a R1200GSA in Portugal.

I was lucky enough to make an almost perfect navigation through the 2 stages... so, I finished on 2nd place on the navigation rating (just behind the Portuguese ATV champion) and 4th on time/navigation rating (rating used on the Dakar)

It was amazing to see a big bike ahead of a lot of more agile and dirt oriented bikes... It must have been just beginner's luck!  :lol:  :ride:  :P

Thanks guys... :)

 

It's fun... really fun! I'm completely hooked!  :wub: 

A new event is being prepared for last weekend of October were a few pros of endure and Dakar are expected... I'm really tempted to go but unfortunatly I think I'll have to pass!

I still don't have off-road boots and suit :unsure:, so maybe I need to improve my gear for off-road first... can't wait to have more!  ^_^

I'm looking at the sg12's as well. The icon dkr boots are great and more protective than my trials balance boots but i need full blown moto x boots. As far as a suit goes. Just wear khakis with shin guards and a street jacket in a pinch. Boots are must.

Well I'm not sure yet... I would like to combine good protection with comfort if I have to walk a bit more. 

 

I have been looking to this boots more like adventure boots:

But I'm also considering to bye ones more robust and with better protection, like the ones used on motocross.

I have to find a store close by to try them... but we don't have many stores and usually I never find my size <_<  (around 12/13 on US size)
