Did a gymkhana driving class a few weeks ago. One of the guys filmed me with his phone :

Well done, you made that look easy although I suspect it was not ;-)

Well done Vrom!!! You see, even when many pretend the CT is a heavy bike, difficult to handle due to his weight, THEY ARE WRONG.µ

Very often the limitation of a machine ( or even tires!), is not the machine itself, but the person on top of it!!! Many THINK they  can drive like a pro!

Well you're right, but also wrong ...  :084:
For normal and even sporty riding the bike doesn't feel heavy at all... but when you have to throw it around like that it sure isn't light  :008:  Went waaaay faster on my KTM Adventure (also because I knew I couldn't really hurt it when I would fall)
