‘Malaysia you can do it! Were words of Rok Bagoros, KTM stunt rider, when he completed his last performance at 2012 bike expo motorcycle show in Kuala Lumpur. 

Indeed, enthusiastic fans did a fantastic job and pulled out last bit of strength from young stuntmen. ‘My hands were hurting like hell and body was beaten, but I’ just couldn’t stop. When I thought: man that’s enough I can’t do it anymore, people just continued to cheer and with so many people wanting more, you really can’t say no!  Si I didn’t and all I can say now is that this was my best show ever and for sure I can’t wait to do it again. Kuala Lumpur is fantastic city, with great people, food, relax atmosphere. The only thing I couldn’t cope with was the damn heat and humidity. It was quite a big change coming from Central Europe, where spring is slowly arriving to full summer temperatures of Kuala Lumpur. It also felt fantastic to jump on my KTM Duke 125 and burned some Sava rubbers after short winter break’,  Rok completed his impressions of his first show in 2012.

He is now heading to next stage in his stuntriding career, as he will jump on brand new KTM Duke 690 stunt beast that is now in final stages of preparation at KTM headquarters in Mattighofen. Check out the video embed of Rok Bagoros in MotoXpo KL 2012 after the jump   Read the rest of this entry »
