Yeah mate. It's ridiculous the amount of trails, kind of a mtb Mecca. I've ridden many on the dirt bike, but alot of spots are closed to motorbikes.. Plenty extra to explore under pedal power. Gotta say I'm one of the few that have been allowed to drive the bump, in my role as firefighter. Got to drive a f250 big block ambulance up once on a recovery mission.. Hella a Fun

Here's a pic of what will be my bike when I can get it made after the legs fitted, its the advert pic and it will have mods to it so that I can either a) jump off, b) fall off, without damage.

Not that colour though I want the metalized orange/black frame paint

For my thinking, Marquez needs only to stay near Dovi and pressure him to see if he can get a mistake that will then win Marc the title.

With all this going on, it could be a race for someone to sneak a win while the two protagonists get side tracked and no, not making adverse suggestions but MM wins the title even if both Dove and himself DNF and Rossi does not win ..........
I'm hoping that it'll be a race just like Thailand

Actually now there you go .... with the leg and associated damage you should test a few eMTBs. Brilliant for recovery ... and lingering ailments ( age being mine .... and Im finding that post 60 all the old injuries are sending me reminders lol. )

Awesome mate. Bike looks sweet, nice and slack. I've been having a blast night (urbanish) riding.. Just now dropped in a 20 step, steep as fuck stair rail. A beer or two helps settle the nerves I find. Really enjoying it at the moment

I don't like ebikes, just don't seem natural, plus of course having ridden bikes most of my life the aches and pains aren't to bad lol. Plus again they are great for fitness.

I had a ride on the earlier version in 2015, was the biggest they had but was about 2 inches to short on height and 3 in length, but then at around 3.8k they don't come cheap hahahaha.

Marc will take it. The season will end up with no yama win in Moto since 2003. Horrible. Rossi and vin cant win on it. Yama needs to look over their shit. Too bad dovi woke up late again and too bad he made those stupid mistakes that led to him crashing earlier this season.

Mate, based on you looking to buy a bike, in light of your current situation I assume you will be receiving a prosthetic leg?

Kudos mate for forging ahead with your life in the face of such a challenge.

Much respect to you.
