Any idea when you planning to have the roadbook ride?

Koos - As you know, I won't be home until 13 October, so suggest ride anytime you want dude.  Kevin_ZA is going to collect a RB, so maybe you could hook up with him and ride on same day.  When I get back, I had planned for another RB day on the 19th for anyone who may still be interested and despearte to get in some RB time.  I will ride that week-end regardless, so we can hook up then too.

I shall ride with Kevin.  The 17-19 I have the enduro ride in Natal, only coming back the next Friday.
Thanks Mark.

I'm keen to join you guys for the ride - I've got the RB from Mark but haven't had the time to ride it

I've got a couple GOCs and maybe a VMX event or 2 to do, before Amageza - but if you arrange to do the ride on a Sunday, I'll probably be able to join you.

My bike's also going in for a sticker kit/wrap this week and I dunno when it'll be coming back ...................................  ::)
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

Thanks BB  :thumleft:  This rallying stuff is seriously addictive.
Koos - I woke up one morning at my father in-laws place to find him braaing a fillet at 07:00.  Asking him what he was doing, he said that this was a normal tradition  ???.  So don't be surprised if you pitch up at my house and your Skaap Kop request is waiting for you, all lekker and warm, with my wife looking over you for feedback & an empty plate!  ;) ;D :ricky:

Not sure my bike will be ready by Saturday.
Did a good shake down of the bike last Sunday and all was  going well until the tight technical sections and river beds of de Wildt. The fan stayed on constantly and drained the battery with all the other Amageza goodies connected.Bike in shop for an upgrade to the stator.De Wildt woops also quickly showed up the weakness in the "shitty" way the round bar is mounted on the road book.
If the bike is not ready by Saturday I will have to "bunk"  work on a Wednesday.
Need the training bad !
Everyone knows the saying " a day without wine is like a day without sunshine"  Truely applicable but as important - a day without my bike is like a day without sunshine !!!

Nee, ek probeer nie snaaks wees nie. Dis tog nie 'n mass start nie, en ek gaan def nie in die eerste 60 wees nie. Wat is die wegspring intervalle in die oggend?
