Riding a dirt bike down desolate desert trails is unlike anything else you can do on a motorcycle. It’s equal parts terrifying and exhilarating, and you’re always on the line between chaos and harmony.

Don’t believe me? Watch this short video of South African off-road open class champion David Ellis ripping through Namaqualand. This video, void of romantic “pulling the bike out of the truck” or “looking out over the peak” shots is nothing but pure heroism and butt-puckering action.


I need to go outside and ride something now. See you tomorrow.

Thanks to Wes at Rather be Riding for the tip!
