Jy is reg, die sand was mooi uitgery deur die voertuie en die spoor was goed as jy gefokus was.
Het wel n ent verder die TA saggies neergesit om n draai te loop :ricky:
Die vriend wat ek op die WD ontmoet het het saamgery op my Kaap trip, op daardie stadium het hy hom al op geval en het gepaddle voor my.
Ek sukkel om te paddle  as die terrein sleg raak, moet maar regop staan en ry, kon egter nie vooruit ry nie, want as die knaap val sou ek moes omdraai, daai pad is nie gemaak vir heen en weer ry as dit nie nodig is nie.
Moet sę, my homemade crashbars werk soos n droom.

Watch out for the Protea trees just after Eselbank, on the way to Wuppertal, too!
They jump right out at you and tackle you to the ground.  :imaposer:

Dis hoekom jy nooit vinniger ry as wat die draai jou toelaat nie.
Jy weet nie wat daar vir jou wag nie.

The main entrance to Atlantis. Very few haven't plowed in there. I'll guess 60% of people who've ever ridden in there have chomped on that bit of sand.

100% of riders to Atlantis have fallen within it's dunes.


Despite the many F800's and 990's going to Atlantis it looks like you really need a plastic bike when treading foot in the dunes?!

My humble contribution: the 4x4 road between Eselbank and Wuppertal. I allowed myself to look at the swerving tracks of the previous bakkie that went through, and that was the end of us. Wife and I had a great laugh - fortunately the sand landing was soft.

Know that piece well. Didn't fall but battled with that spot with the 1200GS.

The plaasbike ate it for breakfast.

As jy vinniger deur hom gegaan het, was jy al op vaste grond toe jy begin gly het.

Chris wou net he jy moes daar val, dis al.

Something very similar to that yes. But had the "clever" idea of accelerating out of the driffie.

Went down as if shot.
