What a distinction a month makes, hey? In March, 2023, moto traveler Marc Travels confirmed us that his Zero SR/F was moderately succesful at dealing with some mild off-road duties whereas using in Tunisia. Now that it’s April, he and his girlfriend/journey companion Maree are using by Albania. Whereas that first off-road SR/F jaunt didn’t have mud and water crossings, Albania’s K1 route appears to have them in abundance.
Not like the primary SR/F off-road video that Marc shared with viewers, Maree and the Jimny don’t look like anyplace within the neighborhood. The additional that Marc will get on the K1, the clearer the explanation for this turns into. The route is extremely slim, and though a part of that’s undoubtedly the best way issues look by the cameras he’s utilizing to report the journey, it additionally looks like both two wheels or two legs are your greatest guess should you’re going to get round on this path.
If the small quantity of off-road using that Marc did in Tunisia was pretty mild terrain, the K1 seems to be something however. Loads of sketchy rocks, huge mud puddles, uphill climbing, downhill climbing, and extra make up the majority of this video. Know what, although? The views are completely unbelievable, and Marc’s efficiently navigating this path on his SR/F is the one motive that we’re attending to see them.
At one level, we hear a loud scrape as he hits the bash plate that’s defending the battery and controller unit whereas going over a very rocky little bit of terrain. A fast verify afterward reveals that the bash plate is ok, and is totally intact. It has a big scratch within the backside now, however significantly better that than something it’s defending, proper?
Whereas the K1 could be very rocky and tough, it doesn’t look like extraordinarily dusty, which is not less than one good factor. The SR/F is belt-driven, and Marc says that he tries to watch out and in addition verify it sometimes. In any case, each Marc and Eve (his title for the SR/F) did an admirable job navigating this route after which using again house to the Airbnb location the place he and Maree are staying in the meanwhile. There’s snow and ice, and Marc is pretty freezing by the point he will get again there—however he did what he got down to do, and was capable of go house and heat up afterward. That looks like a superb day to us.
