Forest riding in Latvia

Post by Nobody » Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:34 am

Just a vid from me riding around a neraby forest on my Gas Gas EC300. Not everywhere it is so clean of bushes, but anyway it shows at least a bit of most offroad conditions here. Some mud (just a little here), some sand, some bushes, fallen trees and places left after logging.
No rocks! :lol2:
We have some places with rocks also, but it is pretty rare.

Not particularly easy now. Easier would be to buy another one :D.

Haha, if anyone wants to come - you're welcome. I need to learn the place better though, got lost and asked for directions at one moment :killingme:

But.. the thing is.. I'm going back to U.S. next monday ;)

Nice.
I noticed no real trails just "breaking bush" and a lot of the area looks like it was logged out. That can leave a nasty tangle of branches, etc on the ground.
Also, I spent some time in Germany and the locals hated it when we got on the walking paths in the Grünwald, , they would yell and throw stuff :lol2: Not a problem in Latvia?

Not really. Some could get annoyed and call a police (which also is not a problem if you don't stay on a spot for a long time), but in this area it is unlikely. To have someone to throw anything at you you have to be really lucky or a real dick :lol2: . Germany is waay too law abiding! :screwy:

Yes, no real trails except the last sandy ones. Was just going around in search of something :). Lost the left radiator guard instead :D. Will go out again tomorrow and try to find it. I have a suspicion I lost it at the place with lots of branches and stumps. Heard one crack better than others but didn't pay attention.

Yanis, I just watched the video again and I'm more jealous about the riding area you have in your back yard! But! As I was watching the video I kept saying "STAND UP YANIS, STAND UP!!" :lol2:

Well, I was standing as much as I can and in places where needed. But my hands won't hold long periods of standing and accelerating/climbing, so I'm combining :)
Yesterday had more riding and found a place with nice sandy trails and climbs. Some of it is in this short video I made for an old psychedelic Latvian song for my friends who also know this song.
