Just had a brilliant weekend riding the trails with two friends from London, neither of them had been dirtbiking for several years due to work/city life. They were a little apprehensive at first but it soon all came back to them. We covered over 400 km in 2 days, across all types of terrain, from dried out river beds to steep mountain passes and sand dunes.
The guys were blown away by the spectacular scenery, not to mention the KTM 530 EXC-Rs. These bikes are the perfect machines for long distance trailriding. Totally forgiving when you get it wrong and totally reliable. However they can bite back, as Andy found out to his cost (only a grazed elbow, but a souvenir to take home). The guys will definitely be back next time they get a break from work.
