Thanks to everyone for their compliments on the RR and to all who took the time to read and comment, much appreciated!!

Thank you to the Specialised Adventures team - We have all thanked Hardy and he obviously he does a lot behind the scenes to make this happen, but let me tell you, he has an absolutely amazing team behind him. These guys worked their fingers to the bone to make sure we were fed, had our luggage, could fill our tanks etc...........

A heartfelt thank you to Chantal Burger, Gene De Kock, Bernadine Van Niekerk, Willie Venter, Mark McIntyre, Gary Webber, Janco Breytenbach and  Steff Pretorius

We head back to camp when the rest start arriving and start sorting out stretchers. Crazy swarms of mozzies emerge from the stone wall as we start setting up and Dwerg and I end up putting our stretchers in the middle of camp, away from walls and vegetation which could be harbouring  these irritating beasts

The idea was to regroup on a hill overlooking the Khumib. It was a great vantage point to view the beauty of the landscape and you could also hear and see the other riders approaching from a distance. Hardy and the sweepers were going quite slow as they were riding behind Barry who had decided to ride again, not realising just how much sand he would encounter..... :peepwall:


We were treated to coffee and rusks and Chantall promised next time there will be cheese cake.

Noneking, how would the 701 have done??

It would have been great, but I'm glad I decided on the 501 for this trip

Noneking, you seem to have run out of fuel a few times. Were you running the standard fuel tank?

Yes I was

8 weeks before the trip, I ordered an IMS tank through a company in Cape Town. I was informed that delivery would take 6-8 weeks as it was a special order and would have to be imported. I paid a 50% deposit and placed my order for a 4.1 gal tank. 5 weeks later, I was informed that something had gone wrong import and they would not be able to honour my order in time. I cancelled the order and my deposit was refunded.

At this point I was very worried, but Hardy assured me that I would never have to wait long for petrol. On this day things got complicated because of Ri's accident and Dwerg's breakdown and therefore a longer than ideal wait next to the track
