Brasil - Royal Road Trip Ouro Preto city to Rio de Janeiro
« on: February 27, 2020, 05:37:12 PM »
   I made the trip from Ouro Preto to Rio de Janeiro, on a trail known as Estrada Real that takes the old gold transport route in the colonial period in the 16th century, from my gold in Minas Gerais to the ports in Rio de Janeiro,
being about 500km away. We went on 3 bikes. If you want to know the link has more information: http://www.institutoestradareal.com.br/.  It was 7 days testing the limits off the road with lots of rain and beautiful scenery.
I really liked the bike, ergonomics, engine, 23 liter tank and electronic features, only the Michelin anakee 3 tire was unsuitable for off-road tires like the metzeler karoo 3 would be better and with less falls

Epic scenery and tough looking trails - Not for me to ride along though . But I do love watching videos and pictures of these types of rides in place I dream of but will never visit.
Thanks for posting the photos
