Not so easy - it's been designed to test you and keep you busy. Not a bike or bone breaker, though, which is good.

Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

Ok, I'm in.

It's a full day in the saddle. 560 km if I include the 60 km there and back from home.

I'll prefer to start early if that's ok with you. Start of roadbook route at 7 am.

Work is hampering my progress big time here.
Will have to pull finger if I am going to want to be on a bike on Saturday.

ok
My nav ride ended at about km 100 with a us stator
Was skulking along on between 6 and 7 volts.
This is good training,  will try again next weekend

thanks Loopsoosstroop, and cracker for advice and guidanc, was worth going out and getting out there and doing some nav.
Couple of little issues sorted at least now.
Anyone have any ideas on the stator?

 :thumleft:  Nice one Pieter.  Sorry could not ride with you, only getting my bike back tomorrow and then I will ride on Wednesday with Jonathan, the lad who rode through Africa and is also taking part in the Amageza.

If My bike is sorted by this weekend I am going to ride again . That is if Cracker does not need his scroll.

Any chance maybe that someone with the know-how can maybe put something like this together for training for this year's Rallye, like Mark did for last year?
