Wino,

One thing that both you and Groenie (and a few others) did right this year: The BASH was only a small part of the adventure.

Groenies words to me last night, have rung so true with your report. The BASH is the mother of all events each year (or it should be).
Why rush there and back? Rather plan a few extra days and make an extra special trip to remember.

Nice report

Did you do Katberg with the TA?

You make it sound like it should be near impossible? Well, I even did it on the KLE, not loaded though. Just take it slow and through she goes!

Well, we were lost so we may not even be talking about the same road?

Are you talking about the road between Seymor and Wittlesea, or the section that turns off to Tarkastad? (The one we came over)

Your pictures are simply amazing, it's obvious that you put allot of effort into taking pictures that on their own tells a story.

a Report must make you get of your ass and go ride, this one does it for me.

Jeez those pics suck you right in! Those are the type of pics I see myself take, but they never are. Is it the equipment or again like KiLRoy said, the operator?

What equipment do you use? For those of us that need all the help we can get.

Nice tale too!

Yes, Katberg is sort of between Seymour and Whittlesea.

Yes, Katberg is sort of between Seymour and Whittlesea.

We came over some rocky mountain trail that T'd into that road. Before the T we were stopped at a gate where we had to sign a book which I signed as "WD Bash Baby!" Then we rode almost all the way to Wittlesea before we realized we were heading in the wrong direction.

Sorry for the 9/11 Wino

Great report and pictures, makes you feel that you were there on the one hand and fills you with regret on the other that you were not.

It was actually your report of "of dust and men" which served as my inspiration to join the dogs and this reports serves as another excellent example of a fine ride report.

I really need to get past the SWMBO this December and strech my legs a little on a decent long ride or I am not going to be ablem to read any more ride reports.
