Picked up Michael's 2012 Beta Evo 300 from him at Zonnebloem last night.  Spent some time riding and getting a feel for the bike:

  • more responsive,
  • a lot more grunt on uphills,
  • easier to wheelie
  • lighter.

Since I haven't ridden for 8 months I was a bit out of practice and went over the bars on one downhill - no harm done.

We had a great ride at Zonnebloem: Ross, Will, Michael and myself.  I rode with Will because the other two are a bit too much for me right now.

Very nice bike?

Well done Charles that bike is definitely the "berries"!

All the best for the 2016 season on your new machine.

I am now also on a Beta and loving it.

Nothing like the first spin

Nothing like the first spin on a new bike   devil

Going over the bars is a rite of passage - the bike is now yours!
