Here are the 7 bikes that went the full distance..
6 XR's and a KTM!  :thumleft:


You know it was a good ride when you bring your bike home looking like this:-


Of course it has to be cleaned and cared for..
Note the XR-Fest sticker!  :thumleft:


I was up front a lot and that's my air filter. I dread to think how some others looked..

Thanks guys for the lekker ride. Sorry for the late reply.

It was really good fun and I just hope my XR is ready next time.

I just got back from Marloth Park, near the KNP. Took some alternate roads on the drive home and there's definitely room in my future for a ride out there..

Well finally a "Speedy" video, sped up to 3x the normal speed to keep it around 10 minutes. This is the first section of the ride, from the start to the picking up of stragglers, to the end of the first dirt section.. Enjoy!!

Hi XR lovers.
I have made no plans to do another one as yet, however I'll do my best to make it happen before the end of the year.
