Thanks for the post Maverick. Lovely!

Hell those AT looks like they never saw a dust cloud in their lives!


Dust is a very rare commodity in the UK dude, this island is made out of mud :shock:



I am still finding mud under the panels from a offroad session in March :D The amount of offroading in the UK is rapidly declining with all the new laws and regulations prohibiting you from going offroad unfortenately. Just a better excuse for a trip to Morrocco then 8)

[quote="Maverick
There is loads of people heading down your way for the Stella Alpina rally dude, will do that next year for sure 8)[/quote]
 
You really need too! I am looking forward to the Stella myself. It will be my 1st proper trip. Getting the bike serviced a few days before: its 1000km service. I will make a proper ride report, with photies!
 
I have a map on the wall in the toilette, :oops: it an excellent place for dreaming about trips. I have plotted about 10 different ways to the Stella from my place... all taking in different passes along the way. Can't wait!  :P

Mav, great report and phodies! Seems to me Leo feels guilty about his behaviour at Zonks braai. Old SADF officers dont get "drunk", we just get "socially tired"and furthermore Leo is a "introvert" through and through!

Actually Grant Johnson organised an HU meet at Golden Gate last year.
It was cancelled due to a slight problem between the two major sponsors.

It would have had a nice line-up too with some 10 international travellers sharing their tales


Oh was that the reason, thought they didn't get the numbers cause of the entrance fee was a bit rediculous, for Africa.
