Enduro done.
192km of sand dunes. 9laps 3hr 25min. No stops (except the crashes). Must say that a D606 is not recommened for traction in red sand. Think i used about 13lt of fuel.
Bring on Finke!!

Yeah it got a bit dodgy once the track chopped up. Though the last thing holding my ability back is a rear tyre.

Hey guys, recommendations for bar grips? Preferences for a foam rally grip vs pro taper pillow top vs standard half waffle vs glove liners?

Im out of town that weekend. We have a mad music festival full of my hippy people at that time. Plenty of hairy armpits and legs around town that weekend
Week off following though.


Probably 50/50, I am happy using pillow top. Dont like half waffles as if they rotate at all ( highly likely) i find that i get blisters. Always a number of riders with plain black foam grips too.

If you decide to go with the foam grips, get a set of the road bike ones. Fit exactly the same however are a bit thinner than the rally grips. I have used both and much prefer the road bike grips. Rally ones are just a bit too thick for my liking.
