Almost done going through all the video footage & getting "Screenshots" out. Have got some pretty cool photos to post. Will do so ASAP....I promise ;) :thumleft:

Andy....w.r.t. the video....I have quite a bit of footage....but I am still not quite knowledgeable with the software to do all the editing. Also don't really have enough time right now. Perhaps I can give you all the "Raw Footage" to make up a short video for us. ;D ;D

Turning off @ "Droevlei".....& I can very much assure you....it WAS NOT DRY!!! :patch: ;D ;D ;D Plenty of wet SNOT....but definitely not dry. Was still a hell of a lot of fun though :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :ricky:

Post by: Bring It On on August 30, 2013, 11:51:34 pm
The road was not totally wet & full of snot all the way. There however quite a few sections that had quite a few serious potholes....which obviously caused just too much "shake, rattle & roll" for Gwild's bike...... :eek7: :lol8:

As we were riding along....I all of a sudden see Gwild's "main Zorst Clamp" pop right off & almost rode right over the thing. I lay on my hooter.....but Eish....Gwild was obviously enjoying the ride so much...that he heard nothing & merrily continued to ride on. :ricky: :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

After briefly stopping to pick up his "spare parts"....I gave chase again to try catch up with him before his entire Zorst fell right off.

Post by: Bring It On on August 31, 2013, 12:01:37 am
Once I finally managed to catch Gwild & inform him that his bike was falling to pieces.....we qhickly assed the damage & did a quick fix with a few cable ties (Frikking Awesome invention :thumleft:)

JUSt BTW.... I have it recorded on video....where Gwild admitted to the fact that this incident was probably caused by his Dakar feeling a little "left out & forgotten" as of late.....as Gwild has been spending far too much time on his plastic bike & this was his Dakar's way of getting him back for all the neglect.

I will add that Gwild did however apologise to the Dakar & promised (on video) that he would ride her more often. :pot: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

Once we met up with the guys...Andy got his "box of tricks" out of his bag & did a quick repair job to get the Zorst Bracket more secured.

Few shots I took while the repair was being done. Also just had to include the proudly displayed "Yamaha Support Team" Sticker on my GS's swing arm :pot: :lol8: :lol8:

Couple of random shots along the road we travelled towards Moorreesburg.

Had a little "Flash Back" on that 3rd photo as I passed by the wash-out along side the road...... :o :o I seriously don't like those things ;) ;D the rest of the road....was pretty nice, with the odd little puddle of water & a bit of slippery Snot along the way. :ricky: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Dunce & I were having a really Gr8 time around some of these corners & through the puddles. I was trying to stay as close to him as possible in order to get some nice footage....but just could not seem to keep up quite enough with that Katoom. :pot: :lol8: :lol8:

Once we stopped here @ the half way mark to Moorreesburg......Andy asked me where my "Orange Lens Cover" was..... & then I discovered that riding behind a KTM on a GS is not such a good thing....as that 18" rear wheel kicks up a hell of a lot more than just sand..... >:D :pot: :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Well @ least I know that having a headlight cover in front of your light....definitely does do it's job to protect your headlight ;) :thumleft: :thumleft: Nothing that a new piece of Perspex form Maizeys cant sort out. :lol8: :lol8:

I'm not sure about the other guys.....but something I figured out....is that momentum & a bit of luck.... is what got me through on most of those "Snotty" sections. Mud sure is a bastard.

Sorry Andy for taking so long to get it done.

Ok then....after a "Steering Damper"....or was it 2.... ::) ;D ;D...... we set off in the direction of Kapteinskloof Pass via the "Berg River" low level water crossing. But we soon discovered as we turned the last corner.....there was no way we were gonna be able to get through about 2m deep water.

Some shots en-route to the crossing.... :ricky:

Eish......you can clearly see, here in the 1st & last photos..... that there were a few KTM's here on these corners having a bit of fun....before we got here :pot: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

I have to add that the road surface here really was Gr8 & it did indeed lend itself to "ridden a little faster" ;D ;D

A little bit further on & we arrived @ the flooded river. You can clearly see in the last photo that the river had dropped in level, from the marks it left on the road.....so it sure was a hell of a lot deeper than we found it.

Post by: Bring It On on September 01, 2013, 08:37:38 pm
Like I said earlier....with the river crossing being waaaaayyyyy too deep for us to get through....we mounted up again & headed back on a pretyy loooong detour in order to get through to Kapteinskloof Pass.

I truly feel that none of us were complaining...as this only meant that we could enjoy the lekker roads we had just travelled on....& also Andy said that he'd lead us on part of the "Alternate Route".....which IMHO made the trip just that much more special :ricky: :thumleft: :thumleft:

@ this point....I didn't realise that my battery had died.....so I never got any of the footage on the way to the Event out @ Eendekuil....or of any of the guys as we arrived.
Only took these few shots with my phone, of us there & again when we left. I have to say....that it sure was quite a n interesting piece of road leading up to the location of that Event.....nice & sandy in some sections :ricky: :ricky: ;D

Once we has filled up our stomachs & "washed down" all the dust ;) We mounted up & started making our way back home again. Some really nice riding I have to admit. Roads here were really in a Gr8 condition.

Haha that first foto was actually me on my DR650, I'm glad it got mentioned in the same breath as a KTM :lol8: The first one was so much fun I turned around and did it again! I think I passed you on that road leading to Moorreesburg.

Looks like a great ride

WOW :o :o :o That sure is a lot of water. We were then pretty luck to have been able to get it so low....otherwise we would've had to do another detour.
