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
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.
