The Commitment: I SOLD THEM ALL, it took me over 12 months but I did it. I sold the F800GS, KTM 690, 2 BMW R1200GSA’s and a KTM Super Enduro. I emptied my garage and decided to simplify my life but I couldn’t go without a motorcycle…
The Bike: I needed street legal, light weight and manageable power for some really tough training. I settled in on the 2016 Husqvarn FE350s. It checked all the boxes for dual sport and enduro training.
The Rider: On a sliding scale I can at any time go from goon to intermediate level maneuvers. I was pleased with my progress (2 seasons on dirt) when compared to my seat hours. The problem is that my seat hours have not been consistent, there were/are too many distractions. So it is time to get back to basics and commit to a solid training method. The first video (credit to Iain Glynn) shows my loop out in third person and for a first person view fast forward to 4:15 in the second video.
The goal: I committed to 12 months on this bike only. I will ride this bike to work on a nice day, hit as many rough enduro trails as I can, train up and see everyone at the Rally’s. I am committing to becoming a better rider and spending as much time outdoors with my family as I can. I hope to see all of you hooligans out there with me.
Cheers from the – ADVFAMILY.
