First Time Offroad for Bruno - BMW F800GS and Suzuki DR650
This was and interesting ride as Jason had lent his almost new F800GS to a friend with no previous dirt experience. We take Bruno out to some of our regular haunts and he does fantastic. Of course he dumps it a few times but that is normal and if you don't have the occasional little tip over you aren't trying very hard. Later Bruno buys himself a KLR so Jason's plan to get him hooked seems to have worked.
The Mighty Suzuki DR650 a Ural Gear Up and a BMW HP2 Enduro in the dirt.
Check us out on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/AwesomePlayers Visit our site at http://apormc.com/ It was a cold April morning and four members of the club headed out on three bikes. No one is riding pillon..... only possible with a Ural sidecar equipped bike in the group. Joe had 1150GS had been feeling its age, at the least the 100,000 kms on the suspension. So he decided not continue bottoming out the poor boxer on the trails. And in an instant he went from controlling his own destiny to being but fleshy ballast at the mercy of the Ural pilot's poor judgement. Know in the sidecar world as "being the monkey". Once we reach a small sandpit everyone takes turns trying the Ural as well as all the other bikes present. Everyone is rusty after a long Canadian winter. A few low speed falls, some wetness and a GoPro getting run over by an over zealous Central European round out the days activities.
The Classique 2013 - F800GS, DR650, KTM 640, HP2
Chris, Riley, Jason and of course Henrik head out for an early spring group ride. The Classique is one of the first dual sport events of the season. Put on by the very capable and friendly folks at Ridaventure.ca who do an amazing job. We were pretty shaky at the start as we hadn't done any riding since the fall and Henrik hadn't ridden in the last year. Jason had his new to him KTM 640 which started having some starting issues when hot. Henrik had some issues with the Mighty Dr as well. A couple of falls, an actual crash and of course the poor decision making that is the hallmark of any Awesome Players ride. This is a long one at 90 minutes so grab a beverage and some snacks and enjoy.
Awesome Players Last Ride of 2010 ( Suzuki DR650, BMW F800, HP2, 1150GS)
The Awesome Players Off-Road Motorcycle club got together for one last ride before the season ended. Pretty eventful, Chris tries to do a front flip on his HP2, moto.joe rips the beak off his 1150GS and throws it down a few more times for good measure. Not be left out, the remaining members have a few crashes as well.
