Lyndon must be flying today. Looks like RKB lost quite a bit of time somewhere.

Are there any WhatsApp or Telegram groups set up for this rally? I really enjoyed the Telegram group for this years Dakar. Live info, pictures and video as it happened.

Willem Avenant of Team Karoo Running posted a WA group link on the Karoo Running fb page a while ago

Planning a Ride / Re: Cederberge current road conditions
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:10:43 pm »
In all honesty, you're on a KLR650. You'll be fine. It is a gravel highway. I see now you mean Eselsbank. That is easy enough on a KLR.

Have fun  :thumleft:

Was my first Canola run and all I can say is what a great event. Fun route, even more so as it was muddy and slippery.

Here is my footage from Saturday.

we might have a solution; the all-new, re-made STEALTH4ONE tent, with a lot of changes....


FINALLY  :ricky:

I have been waiting to hear about developments on this tent.

What are the dimensions Chris? I am also thinking, if you add an optional extra of two small poles with guy ropes this could be sold as a hiking tent as well. The poles of course playing the role the bike would.

General Bike Related Banter / Re: Riding in the wind

I have read & heard about this technique and have tried it but honestly can't say that it makes any difference for me.


This of course only works if your knee has airflow over it. If it is hiding behind a large fairing it won't work.

A good way to test is ride on a windless day and put your knee out. You should be able to feel it pulling you to the side.

Ride with your leg/knee turned out on the upwind side i.e. into the wind. This has the effect of pulling you and the bike into the wind which both stabilizes you and prevents you being blown across the road. If that doesn't work slow down or stop and wait it out a bit.

In all honesty a few of us on here are professionals who are busy during the week. Take the knock, put in your half day of leave and go do the learners and license.

While I understand where you're coming from, it really takes very little effort to go do the learners test and then do the license test. If you can ride a bike at all and know your road rules then passing both is easy. No excuse at all for trying to buy it.

Take it out of the water and let it dry.

Have a few beers while you wait for it to get dark.  When you've had enough beers and it is dark enough, wash it.

It should come out red.   :pot:

Would also like some pics of the pump please.

Great stuff  :thumleft:

Regarding using the elevation plot from google earth, keep in mind if you draw a straight line A - B and look at the profile it won't necessarily show you the highest terrain you'll encounter enroute, it just shows you what the line "sees" as such. Combining that with actually tilting the 3D view in google earth would be a safer way. If you drew parallel lines say 1nm apart on a direct route from George to Vredendal you might find they can have quite different profiles as one hits maybe a valley and the other the adjacent ridge for example.

But GE is a great tool.

Many of these things come down to how we as a society interact considering how culturally diverse we are in SA. People are impatient and intolerant.

The Afr term "Verdraagsaamheid" is the best descriptor of what we're lacking.

General Bike Related Banter / Re: Honda CRF450L is coming
« on: June 07, 2018, 09:07:28 am »
So it would seem Honda has admitted the previous info was a cut and paste stuffup from the 250.

Here is the real deal:

« on: May 24, 2018, 01:56:20 pm »
I would give the KLR my vote as well. Maintenance is cheap and easy to do, they are fairly bombproof and can stand up to a surprising amount of abuse.

Also, KLR even secondhand is probably still one of the best value for money DS bikes out there.
