Default Newbie, first dirt

My son got himself a 2008 KLR 650 this week
Seems I'm doing something right



Yesterday I took him for the first dirt ride
It rained in the morning so the roads were damp and some places a few marbles
He coped quite well with one or two spots where it went almost oops, but stayed up, traveled 40 to 50 km/h, taking it nice and slow

Seems the bug has bitten







A friend also with a Tenere and his son, also a KLR, joined us along the route









The first of many, I hope
