Thanks Andy for organizing a truly memorable ride. That first trail up the mountain was fantastic! Unfortunately it was such hard work that I didn't take a single photo. Hope someone else did though. See you all on the next ride.

We met at Richwood Garage as planned.And by 07h20 we had 18 bikes.

When I wrote mountain /trail riding , it was to skrik off the bigger bikes as the routes  both have tight corners and steep inclines.

But that didnt stop the big bikes like the 1200GS`s , KTM 990/950.

Michiel

(http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p131/hunday/08022009001.jpg)

On the first mountain trail , a bull dozer had been up there recently .It had scraped patches here and there ,but really just stuffed the road up.

The first 500m we saw thick uneven sand and ruts , this strech slowed down a number of riders,
And saw Rynet on her 1200GS bin it in the sand.Her bike didnt have knobblies , which is a must for these kind of rough tracks.

We stopped a 1/3 of the way up and waited for all to catch up.I got a call from Michiel to say that Rynet is going to turn round and wait for us .

We pushed on and finnally made the top.
The last strech , there was vertually no track to be seen at all , just thick bush.

Wayneh and Stev0

Bonova

(http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p131/hunday/08022009003.jpg)

Quite a few riders dropped their bikes on the way up .They can all tell you them selves.

I The 600`s were all at the top first

On the way down, it was tight and off camber. Only got this once we were through most of it. Can see the guys back in the feilds.

Off to Rebiek West for some well needed cooling off.

Aardt looking how most felt. Did I mention how hot it was.

The oink burger apparently, not bad.

Headed home from there via the tar.

Great ride, stretched some of the guys. I'm sure they'll tell.

I have video but will not be able to edit for a while.

Cheers all.

Why don't you start some sort of off-road academy (whatever one wants to call it) for the newbies down there Kamanya??

I'm a firm believer of "nothing for nothing" but shit, you can make a couple of quid by teaching the young :thumleftc

Not sure how you got that I was teaching anyone more than anyone else there? I was just along for the ride.

Who needs an another academy, just come along for the rides, there's always many to help out. This was maybe a little on the higher end of newbville.

Ok, re-phrased.

You're obviously a succesful person that doesn't need an xtra income, sorry about he suggestion of making an xtra buck :(

With your skills you can certainly start an off-road academy (whatever you wanna call it) for the newbies - I know a couple of youngster in the WC that seriously want to learn the basics and who are willing to pay for your time.

Hey Andy what a fantastic ride you planned!  man that was the worse track that I have ridden in my few months off-road. I hadn't expected such deep sand in the cut-backs and so steep as well ! I was wide -eyed with wonder  :o at the hectic track and respect for the awesome ability of you guys  :hello2: . I was inspired to go home and start saving for knobblies straight away and to start practising !!

What a nice bunch of guys you all were !!, and esp thanks to Kamayana, KTM bigger and Pantsula for the help .  :love10: :love7:

ps see you soon on a less hectic ride :)

pps why don't you come to Nelsons Creek this week-end , the orange ride is also quite tough going up and down a steep mountain near Wellington and then there is the 'dreaded' red route , only for smaller bikes as its soo hectic !
Title: Re: WC-TRAIL RIDE UP MOUNTAIN & !

Thanks to all the guys who helped, what fantastic spirit!!

The Nelsons Creek thread , hope to see some of you there, its this week-end coming . The rides are through some of the most awesome scenery , special permission had to be obtained from farmers. I am soo sorry , but won't be doing the difficult orange as it's too hard ( too steep) but it's apparently spectacular! I will be doing the easier green route which is a good second best ,   but the way some of you guys rode I'm sure you will be able to do the 'dreaded' red route !! >:D

otherwise see you soon on one of your rides  ;)

Nice one guys. It's a real pleasure to ride these awesome trails with such a lekker bunch of Dawgs.
Don't think I'm not the only one feeling it today  :-[ ...The decent down the second mountain happened to grab my front wheel and give my shoulder a lekker workout... Alison-the-Punisher (aka physio extraordinaire) is not very happy with me  ;D   

Well worth it!!!!

A quick reminder... Please be aware that the farmers have asked that we 'rest' these trails up the mountain in order to avoid too much erosion with the next rains.  :deal: This means these trails are now officially closed till next summer. Those with a good memory, or a handy GPS, please don't succomb to the urge to go revisit or guide your mates through these trails... XT660R has done an awesome job of establishing good relations with many of the farmers around CT. Let try and support this.  :thumleft:  ...And there's just too many other virgin trails to go explore anyway.

XT660R have put together a killer ride. I woke up Monday morning with every muscle in my body aching.
Being in the back might seem to be where the action was but seeing so many bikes lying on their side is not good for moral added to that the fact that I had to use a lot of my limited energy resources to help push other bikes up the hill.
Fortunately the HPN does make things real easy with the low down torque and centre of gravity.

For the guys that posted pics and vids, great show but I must say that it does not really give the true feeling of how tough it was getting up that first hill. The inclines always seem more steep in real life and when you add dehydration, dust, humidity and a baking sun to the images it is very different scenario all together.

All in all I enjoyed myself plenty and had a fabulous first ride with the Wild Dogs and thanks for the compliments from Kamanya and Michiel.

Hi Dustdevil,

Nice ride.

Which farm did you enter first?

I grew up in that area and my dad's farm was somehere near the cross. I often rode up the mountain from the front as seen in the circle. Near the jail.

There is no jail on or near this side ofPaardeberg and this pic is about 30 km from Mamsbury .
 Paardeberg jail is on the Northern side of the Mountain .Thats the farmer who wont let bikes go up "His road"

The real reason was that that dufus KTM Bigger doesn't know how to operate the remote wireless recording button for the camera that is mounted on my bikes bars.

He was too busy having fun on my bike.

Yes you are right , i always have fun on your beast, Hence i will be looking into a purchase soon. I was also trying to keep my hands on the bars while trying not to get burnt Because Dufus Kamanya put the heated grips on just before i climb on his bike. :laughing4:
