Greetings from Portugal !

I've been watching this forum for quite some time and I finally decided to join ! Although I currently do not own a GasGas (I ride orange ) I hope you guys don't mind and accept me as well as if I had one . I'm very curious in finding out more about GasGas dirtbikes and also to be part of this community by helping the best way I can.

Thank you

Vind

Welcome aboard, Vindicator!

A GasGas 250 or 300 enduro was designed for terrain such as what you have in Portugal. Gnarly stuff! Our bikes were designed not only to withstand the abuse of such terrain, but to do it at race speed.

I hope to hear of your riding exploits and experiences in Portugal. Please share some of them with us as you get a chance.

Good Riding!

Jim

Wow! They let quads in the race at the same time. I would hate to have to go behind one of them after they wallow out the mud holes.

That hill on video #2 looked like fun. My DE300 loves that stuff. Were you among those that were filmed?

Good Riding!

Jim

Bravo!!!
Your climb was the best looking one shown on the video. You did it with no fuss, exactly as it should be done. WTG!

If you get lost, and end up anywhere near Arkansas, let me know. I'll furnish you with a bike and show you what I consider to be the best tight woods oriented mountain trails in the United States. (I know it's a long way from Portugal, but one never knows. This summer in Idaho, I rode with two internet friends from Germany. It was 2000 miles from Arkansas, but then, I ride all over the place.)

Good Riding and Hill Climbing!

Jim

I am a new member here and my first time posting. I just wanted to thank Jeff for the time he puts into this and let him know what a great site this is. I can't wait for my new bikes to show up. All I've ever rode is converted motocross bikes. It will be nice to ride a bike that is actually set up for woods riding right out of the box. Thanks! Rosco
