Raced it as a shake down ride for the baja. Sommer rode there and back as well on the bike. Glad to say all went well  besides for the front brakes failing with a caliper bolt falling out. Luckily did not end up onmy head.

Was it you on the CRF? Forgot the number now, something like 114...

Ha ha ha no. I was pit crew for Dwerg and Bazinga, directly across from your pits.

Ok, I'm about to sign up for race 2 but dunno where Settlers is, as in how far from JHB and what direction?

My riding buddies have all pulled out this year due to injuries they got last year, apparently - which really means they're too old or just plain scared.

So I'm in 2 minds about getting up before the sparrow farts and driving mile and miles .................................

Saw the GXCC race on Kings of Dirt last night - looked like a great track was prepped - not 1 meilie in sight  ;D

I was under the impression that the bikes and quads were to race together, I'm glad to see I was wrong.

Bazinga and I entered for round 2. Haven't been on the bike since the last race  :-\
Looks like it's going to be a messy affair. Don't think I'll be wearing my new kit  :lol8:
Cracker, did you enter?

No, I didn't.  :(

Too many negatives for me - a towing vehicle that's bust, rriding buddies busted up, not keen to race alone, gotta wake up way too early to be there by 6H30, laps are way too short AND I saw the length of the registration queue on TV. blah, blah, blah .............

We'll see next time - maybe I'm getting too old and picky but the negatives outweighed the positives on this one.  ::)

But you guys enjoy it, set the berserker free and see how fast you can really go.

I had to do some personal stuff this weekend and had to pull out. OK OK I lie I wasn't looking forward to the rain and mud and chickened out  :-[

Bazinga went. Still waiting for results but he said he had a good day. I'll be back for the one in April

Was a good race, hats off to Lourens for putting together a track in 2 days after the last one got washed away.  It was a bit too fast for my liking but the terrain was awesome. Nice thick sand with lots of grip.
