And we ended off with a nice little river crossing...after this we all got seperated or lost and I hope all parties got home safe and sound.

Again thanks for the morning lads, always good to spend a day in the dust, mud and dirt on the back of a bike hey...

And we ended off with a nice little river crossing...after this we all got seperated or lost and I hope all parties got home safe and sound.

Again thanks for the morning lads, always good to spend a day in the dust, mud and dirt on the back of a bike hey...

that's exactly where i took a dive with my 950 in the Kliprivier. going slow i hit a uneven section of the concrete, stalled and fell in the hole the washed away concrete left. Needless to say i had to fetch the trailer to get back home.

watch out for that last section, about half of the bridge is washed away to the right of the picture.

the other day i lost it again because of the snot on the concrete.

Dont feel bad, Halfdaft lost his bike in that same river, Schalk lost his bike there as well and the first time I crossed it I almost lost my KLR there as well. Lesson: Always walk a river crossing if possible becuase you dont know where the bridge ends  :lol8:
