And again we decided to go for a “trail week” to Umbria. Short video with impressions from October 2020.
This is a review of the new Michelin Tracker enduro tyre. It is based on my personal experience and opinion. I am currently riding one set on my KTM 690 Enduro R for the first time.Continue reading Michelin Tracker offroad tires
In Umbria a 215 kilometer itinerary around Perugia is accessible for motorbikes through secondary and dirt roads that flank lakes, historic cities, hills and small valleys. It is suitable for any type of motorcycle, preferably for an enduro. If keeping yourself out of private properties, which are clearly marked, no one will be upset even if you are riding on smaller tracks – given that you are respecting everyone else with less horsepower!Continue reading A perfect day in umbria
When it comes to clothing I’ve tried out many different brands and models. But especially in summer when temperatures are rising I was looking for something less „bulky“ without putting security on the line.

So let’s wait and see, until then we have to live with our phantasies 🙂

Some are fascinated, some entertained, some jealous, some shake their heads and some are mad. But why is this acrobatic riding style so controversial? Continue reading Wheelie Controversy
Since I bought my first Motorcycle I am searching the perfect Enduro tyre. Of course there wont be such thing, but we can try to find one close to perfect. The last tyre I tested on my KTM 690 Enduro R is the Heidenau K60 Scout. I used two sets, one only onstreet and one mostly offroad.
