GS Challenge 2007 pics
« on: October 01, 2007, 04:50:01 pm »
Just a few selected pics from the event.

I rode the red routes with the HP2 when we marked the routes the week before the
event started, and pillion on my 1150 ADV on a blend of green, orange & red when
we did route support during the event.

That is just wrong  >:D >:D

Some stunning pictures there rebel. Very nicely done.
I am really pleased to see pics like this from the challenge, definitely means a good time was had by all. I will refrain from showing my bike these pics, it may refuse to start again  O0

Nice one H, darem bly om te sien L kom ook bietjie saam met jou weg.
Lyk awesome daaronder.

As jy nie te gatvol gespeel is nie moet ons nog plan maak om met die HP's te gaan speel.
