Look like a challenge on any bike. Thanks for sharing but it made me dizzy. You up on the pegs most of the time?

Nerves of steel. Good riding on such a rocky course. Couldn't believe how tight it was working around the broke down jeep. Nice ride area too.

Ha ha, you noticed my pucker factor! I was pretty worried about slipping off that mountainside.

Yea, looked like a long way to the bottom in places. But I'm sure you would have hit a tree before the bottom.

Dookoo I have wondered where you have been keeping yourself. I see that you are hold up in the mountains. If you are not dragging your knee on the wing you try not to drag the knee on the KTM...Thanks for sharing the ride. I love the dual sport thing and I am currently trying to figure out how to get a Africa Twin.

Ride safe and good to see another post from ya..

I hope I am not violating any rules.....I subscribe to this channel and here is the link....If you liked Dookoos video you will like these. It is Everide ADV and he post tons of Dual Sport Vlogs and other motorcycle related stuff. I am asking for forgiveness just in case

Nice video, pretty rocky riding terrain to say the least. I like the sound of that clutch you have.
