    With full luggage and a pillion, is it better or worse than a Transalp over jumps?

    (like triples)
    The pistons in the fork are stupid. Horrid machining on them and the ports are tiny.

    New pistons and revalve with correct springs and its a new bike.

    If they were meant to fly they would have wings, aye?

    Apparently the bike is stock suspension but re-sprung and valved. Pretty good for a 200kg+ budget bike.

    Admittedly, a 6'7" world class trials and hard enduro rider makes it look good. And then some.

    Be fucked if I would ride one on Northland single track or try for air time. Yeah, nah.

    I'm only 6'2".

    He's a either a couple of kumaras short of a hangi or massively endowed in the kiwifruit department, too.

    I got the impression a couple of times in the vid that he spotted an opportunity and just has a crack at it.

    With a fierce 250 2t enduro and a trials bike at my disposal, I'm humbled by how little I could ride of what he did on either of them.

    I also get the impression he paid for the bike himself, no proof but quite a few posts from him and his mates on social media imply that.

    Very interesting bike!
