the build looks good. i like the trail ride. clipped a few tree branches which is good lol glad you mounted the go pro on the hood rather than the bonnet  ;) rofl   there is just 1 turn you just couldnt make it through. i read you had said wore out tires and wet grass so wenll let that1 turn slide....this time  :D lol.    i bet there is some good hunting in that forest! the trees are so think in spots its like a wall of fencing!  that would be fun with some aggressive tires and if its wet a lot then awd or 4wd. you seemed to get some good speed up in the straight aways!


yer the camera is so much better on the hood lol, I am 3 weeks or so late doing this most of the leaves have fallen now it looks a bit bleak,  and yes lots of deer around pesky things eat all my trees when I plant them , I will remove that one tree I think ,
anyway back on to the buggy I think

I managed to find time to run the mower round my buggy track today bit wet really which  made it hard work for the mower but it got there in the end

and once  I could see where the track went again I thought I might as well do a couple of laps with the gopro on the bonnet, sorry hood  ;D  this was a road car on worn out road tyres running on wet grass so I couldn't really push it to hard but you can see the difference compared to the earlier vid which was a few years ago, lots more trees to collide with lol




as you can see a couple of trees need moving  or I need a swb buggy instead of a lwb station wagon lol

oh wow that is a muddy mess! i would never do that to my rail  ;D ;D


yes i was in the lead, go pro was mounted on the rear. fyi go pro's don't like being mounted that close to your rail pipe lol at that time it was a turbo charged hayabusa. when you hear that high pitched sound through the go pro that is apprx 8k rpm to 9k rpm. only hit that a couple times in the video. carl's has a turbo charged ninja 12r but in that video he hadn't boosted it yet. it's a whole new machine with the turbo!!!

there is just enough clay in that sand that it doesn't all blow off but for damn sure nothing like your pics  LMAO LMAO holy crap!

ok I just watched that, it sure looks like you guys have fun over there, even if we had sand dunes over here our government would let us drive on them in case we hurt ourselves pahhhh
I cant imagine how nice it must be to take your buggy home and have the sand blow off on the way back and hey presto clean buggy
its not like that here  several hours jet washing the mud off everytime you take it out

so who was in the lead buggy ,DSrace ? what engine is in that  and whats powering the second buggy ?

 LMAO
We planned camera on rear and I tried to stay right on him thru trails.  Camera doesn't really show how close I was.  Those face mask really keep my nose from getting clogged.  From driver seat I seemed like 1-2 car length most of trails. LOL

Pretty sure that was old 3 wide cage, so lean while solo was wild.  Narrow frame, new front steer tires, keeps m e out of bushes better...……. LMAO LMAO LMAO
