Weekly Update 2020-07-19

Good Sunday evening!

After tiring of waiting for Jaco to post his R1200GS review, Rowan stepped up and did one on his smaller brother - the BMW F800GS that he's been riding for a couple of months: https://www.onanysunday.co.za/posts/bike-review-2017-f800gs/

We spent most of the weekend riding in Swellendam - hard enduro and fast offroad. We recorded about 140Gb worth of video footage and will process that this week. Rowan stuck a microphone in his helmet and added running commentary while riding, which promises to be quite entertaining.

Halfway through our ride today we had to replace my rear tyre after rocks got between the rim and tyre bead. Despite expecting another struggle like last weekend we actually managed to change the tyre and moose (a fancy permatube). It only took three able-bodied men and we only half-destroyed the moose. Great success!

I hope your week is as good as the past couple of days' weather here in the Cape.
