I'm planning a string of cash-in-transit withdrawals over the next few weeks.

Liewe hel, ek het die regte tool vir die job, die 690 sal tog te mooi werk vir die Amageze. Maar dis net te ver om te kan se of ek dit sal kan maak of nie.. :'(

Camelman, is facebook vrot of the Amageza yet? And the twitter channels? Are all the wifes and girlfriends notified yet!?  They are our supporters and ultimately, they balance the books!

Hentie and myself have something in planning stages :thumleft:

Wer'e thinking of entering a 4 man sponsored Rally team................probably with back-up
Kamanya - if you can do it on your bigbore - so can I on the SE
.................That is - if I don't hit a jackpot somewhere and buy a 500, 525 or 530 Katoom for the job
I know of a sure 30K inbound that can be applied just for this.
I am almost 100% sure that I am going to enter............just need some slight planning first


and by the way............... 7-11 is my birthday
Just think what a pressie like this can be for yourself?? :biggrin: ;D :biggrin: ;D
We are blessed to share the biking fraternity together!

Sticky'd this thread. 

A comment in general if I may: If you want to do this thing, DO IT. Don't come here and bla bla bla like typical South Africans and back out when it starts getting close/too difficult/too expensive/too busy etc etc etc. You have 8 months to get ready for this. If you tell us you're going to do it and then you don't, your words will still be here thread for all of us to read forever.

You only live once. If you think you can do it go for it. Its going to be hard though. Hard to get to the start, and hard to finish.

Okay if you are in I am in!

Now I'm in so you have to be in. Sponsor shmonsher - Cool idea but not sure about it in practice.

I don't have the money to get home to RSA right now. The mining business is very tough at the moment. I have a bike that has not been ridden in months. I wont have enough time to prep it. But somehow I will manage.

Whats your excuse?  :deal:   >:D

How very true - It's gonna be hard to get to the start and even harder to get home from the finish - but we've got 8 months to organise something that would really only take a day or 2.
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

Great Niel :thumleft:
Looking forward to see you again!
Wer'e surely going to have a hell of an afterparty in CT!
Its been a while and lots have happened
You sure your leg is going to be fine?
No tears and wimpering allowed :o
Remember - pissies will never be heroes! :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:
3000 k's over 5 days - daily distance directly in line with the Dakar.
It all depends on the length of the daily special stages - in any case - its gonna be a tough one!
Whether I do it with the SE or another bike...................iv'e got a hell of a lot of prepping to do until then

See you in Uppington on 1 Nov :thumleft:

Gee wat het van n inflasie verwante verhoging vir inskrywingsgelde geword.  Meer as dubbeld die prys?

Amper dubbel die afstand ;)

Jip, still wanna do it.  But my current wife will crack if she finds out how much it's costing!

I have a 5 day race to plan! One man guys. Okay 1.357689324. (I get some help from Wayne and others when they can)

Lets just make it like a 'Planning a Ride'. You post your name and if you are paid or partial. Lets see how honest everyone is. I'll mark it and allocate race numbers according to truthfulness!  :biggrin:
