 :lol8: Maybe should have thought about that before you entered...

Which KTM? Maybe you can borrow a headlight somewhere.

Where apart from the North and South Poles can 14h00 - 19h00 be classified as night, I know KTM's are fast, but faster than the speed of light, I don't think so. :imaposer:

I bought a 1000 lumen battery powered LED from Extreme lights who is a forum vendor here, the light is really bright and should be more than enough to light your way. I am under correction but it cost about R600 odd..

Quick and simple to charge, lasts hours, easy to mount

Problem solved.

Jip, but they excluding Mordor for the race, last time round I managed 6, but fitness and saddle time has increased big time. Been riding with a bunch of mates doing roof training!

So who else entered this event??

Jislaaikit, what a race. We basically did the entire trac exluding mordor and a small section of the koppie.
Managed a 3rd place and 7 laps, started my 8th but had to turn around due to cramps 2km into the loop!

Great day and great event!
