Ek en mej , nou mev Flatout het in 1980 deur die Nigramoep reservaat, 'n stukkie van die Rigtersveld en ook 'n deel deur "Suid-Wes" gery met amper geen uitrusting nie. Van scramblers het ons ook maar min geweet en gedink die 1979 cb 550k loop sommer lekker met sy short wheelbase en vier exhaust pype  :lol8:. Toe ons met dieselfde pad die volgende dag terug gery het was dit in 'n haelstorm en die driffie het toe baie sterker geloop. Die fiets het diť trip goed oorleef maar die Pirelli en Avon tyres was aan flarde. Die loop het oral afgetrek.

I used to ride my cb50 and later a cb175 around that circuit as if they where off road bikes. We lived nearby in Mount Pleasant and there where no access control to the area.
