Which way did you go ?? Same as last time Andy?
Most of the way , except the River crossing was flooded some 2M over the bridge,
So we did the last piece of the Alternative route as it has a bridge on it,

Thanks for the photos GWild :thumleft: I will only get a chance to start working through all my footage later on tonight & will post ASAP. ;)

BTW.....why don't you tell the "Real True Story", of why this happened to your bike & not blame it on the bumpy road..... :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:



I'll give you chance to come "clean" >:D :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: & tell us all the real story!!! ;D ;D If you don't then I will be forced to just post the little video clip of you confessing why that happened :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Yes thanks guys, was a great ride. I vote that the detour was the best piece of trac by far. Thanks Andy for getting the gate in the swamp. Great meeting all of you legends.
Ja that Dakar was a bike of two sides :peepwall:
Shot for the picks  :thumleft:
