Taffy Drwg (Taffy Dakar) 2019
« on: May 16, 2019, 01:42:19 PM »
A few weekends ago, me and two others (on CRF 250 Rallys) took part in the 2019 Taffy Dakar 2019. Lots of fun finding waypoints and trail riding in the Welsh countryside. Around 300 riders and I think I counted about 7 Tigers, including one XR model. 
Our team ended up coming 12th out of around 50-80 teams, not bad for our first outing!
There's a video here https://9to5adv.com/2019/05/10/taffy-drwg-2019-movie/ and photos below.

It looks like you and the bike need a good cleaning.

Thanks! It was a great weekend. Highly recommended, especially as the ticket price is only about 60.00 and includes camping and meals!

I've got a pair of Mitas E-07's on there. Can't really comment on how good they are as they're my first 50/50 tire, but they're much better than the standard battleaxes! They we're a little rumbly on the road, as you'd expect, but didn't take long to get used to.
