I wish to make a few nominations:
1. Most falls - Me!? Once in the mud and twice in the sand
2. Most spectacular fall/dismount - Operator for jumping the Tenere 180 degrees onto the reeds during a water crossing
3. Most damage (With rider on the bike) - SuperTen for removing his mudguard in the sand
4. Most damage (Without rider on the bike) - Adventure Hunter for pushing his bike over while oiling the chain
...any other nominations are welcome :pot:


... and Operator for the most ironic statement when he told me he wanted to stop at Smitskraal for a drink
It seems his bike also wanted a drink   >:D

Wow Lord Knormoer , those photos are beautiful   :drif: :drif: , looks like they were done by a Pro.  Impressive. I really can't take nature scenes they always come out worse than what I see, yours come out better than what they are, not sure how you do that . Wow.   :notworthy:

Thanks , I must get some tips from you.  ;)

Ok some pics of the people, those I can sort of do.

At Kom se Pass ( I think ) , what a rush riding those brilliant roads , and the scenery , gorgeous .  :ricky:

“It’s pointless,” said reason. “Give it a try,” whispered the heart.
