Now that is cool stuff!



What did the other DS riders say? :D You know the "real" guys with the R150k+ bikes and pimp suits? :D

I remember riding into the Hell once. On the road with us were a couple from Gauteng who rode all the way there in a Defender 90 "because of the road". You can imagine their faces after 1000km of shaking on the N1 when they got into Gamkaskloof only to find a Daewoo Matiz also there. :lol8:

R150k bikes, by that you mean the GSA's ?

They have 19inch fronts, so not allowed on dirt :P
