The 803 is soooooooo slow for riding backroads
This is NOT meThe 803 is soooooooo slow for riding backroads
I know what a heavily modified Gen2 SV650N is capable of and the Scrambler seems to me to pull harder everywhere. (...had 45 tooth rear on SV)And its so hard to get around traffic...
Agreed, it's not Deal's Gap. A few too many sideroads, drives, etc...for that action imoI didn't watch every second of it, but that road looked a little too straight for my taste. I don't think I'd call it the "twisties"
I was thinking exactly the same.Backroad... Ha! That would be a major A road in the UK.
I can't figure out who wins in this situation though...
What I do know, is that the Scrambler is a lot more bike than people realise. Especially now I've had it mapped, it pulls up to 90 pretty rapidly.
The suspension just needs sorting to help the tyres stick to our torn up 'roads.'
Ha! That's what I'm saying. 100, 115, 135HPI was thinking exactly the same.
Come over here and ride our back roads,strewn with leaves,gravel and usually pretty moist and bends you cannot see around,then I'll be impressed with those speeds.
Certainly not mate, the pace appears to be quite brisk. I could only ride at that pace on major roads and rural highways, and then only in short bursts with my eyes wide open for lurking Hwy Patrol.It's typical rural California Backroad riding.
Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia...all have rural roads that provide many differing scenarios.
Are you trying to suggest that the route shown in the video is not challenging given the velocity demonstrated???
