Took these yesterday at a 4x4 track somewhere near Magaliesberg of my brother Bmad playing on his 1150 Adventure:

Me and your brother should get together and swop mud wallowing stories. :mrgreen:

Playtime with the 1150ADV

GSwannebe needed to compete some shots of bikes in action and asked me to help her out, being the good brother that i am  :D i agreed to meet at Swartkops raceway on Monday morning 5.45.

RTR and I pitched and had a cuppa while the equipment was being setup for the shoot. The land Rover looked like a Kalahari Ferrari with all the lights and stuff mounted on the roofrack  ;D

2 bikes and 1 empty raceway, what bliss ;)

Some of the shots:








My favorite shot of the day:



Later in the week it was required to do some offroad shooting. So Saturday afternoon we head off to Magaliesberg to the 4x4 club playground for more.









Coming down:


Going up:

Bmad, rather keep it under Pictures, it's not really a ride report. ;)

I used to be indecisive, but I'm not so sure anymore

Awesome pics!

Is it my imagination, or does Bmad let the GSA look small ?

he must be quite tall...

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
