Quite apart from the eco-hooliganism, they're stupid nuts!

I don't know if I could agree with that. Leaving nothing but footprints...and maybe a broken body and bike in a worst case scenario, but eco hooliganism? Nee ou boet, I hope you are not going to turn into an eco-nazi ;D

Looks doable, on a MX bike anyway, unless one is scared of heights.
Don't try this with a Boxer engine  :biggrin:

 :imaposer:  ja, that gully will clamp down on those awkward pots.

1200 boxers should stick to riding Baboons Pass :pot:

Will do it anytime, sponsored of course, including parachute for incase. Yes

TW200 would work great, just up the rear sprocket by a tooth or 3
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Makes my coconuts run and hide, but a beer and adrenaline shot or two may persuade me..... :eek7:

As long as there's a leader I'm in for the ride, imagine going up the wrong pass and hitting a dead end, leave the bike and walk home.

Technically there is nothing too it. The only difficulty is dealing with the mind monsters.
