Spencer gunning up the difficult bit.
After this bit it was steep downhill then lots more riding along the river bed but as time was getting on and we had a long way to go I didn’t stop for any more photos

Hopefully Spencer enjoyed his rather rough introduction to offroad riding and enjoys more adventures on the dirt

Heading north and here it was Spencer who has a mishap and falls off, some blood lost and a damaged bike.
The gear lever was bent right in to the engine and I had heard horror stories about something going wrong inside the engine if this happens but luckily the gearbox worked fine

Christian and myself take Spencer out on his first off road trip.
We planned on leaving at 8.30 but I had a flat tyre, it was pumped up to 30 psi but was almost flat again by the time I got back to the GH so it was off to the Castrol Bike Point for a new tube and a new tyre that they had in stock for me
