Went exploring through some of the dirt roads through the natio. This was my first time riding on some heavily rutted & slippery dirt, and first time bottoming out the big Buelly.
Also found some nice, fairly smooth gravel roads and practised riding dirt at high(er) speeds.
After a few hours playing I was comfortable cruising along at ~110km/hr with the rear end sliding around, wooo! This dirt stuff is just SO fun!
I even got air a few times off some large water-bars. The first time I landed with too much weight on the front and got some serious death wobbles (which ended up spraining both my wrists). Buelly settled itself quickly as soon as I shifted back in the seat and cracked the throttle open.
It really does recover amazingly well for such a stumpy bike with short rake. Thanks Erik!
