My turn to tackle the Famous known "Make the Biggest Splash" water crossing. :ricky:

Started off a little slow in the beginning to check for a good line to find some deep water & then gave it gas near the end. From my view point.... it seemed as if I got some nice high water spray. Can only hope the view from the cameras on the other side facing me will be able to show the real picture.

Both myself & my scooter got proper wet  :lol8: ;D :thumleft: :thumleft:

Feeling happy with the results of my "mellow approach" to create a fair slash... I moved on to catch up again with Goose.

Just a little way ahead we came across these 2 buys that obviously got their bikes a bit more wet than our bike :)

One was been towed a bit to "Bump Start" & the other one had his bike well stripped to get to electrics in order to get it dry again. I did stop briefly to check they were ok & as no help was required.... we moved on. Trust you both got sorted there. Never nice to leave a fellow biker stranded.  :(

Few more random shots along the way :ricky:

The guy sitting on his bike in the last photo... looked like & reminded me of a  "Spiet-Kop" keeping an eye on this to make sure we "Behaved" around this corner :ricky: :lol8: :lol8:

Few more random shots towards the end of the first leg... :ricky:

Always nice to see the Farm Workers enjoying the day with us as they were always greeting everyone with a friendly wave as you past them.

Hopefully a few of you guys can recognise your bikes here in a few of these photos..

Both Ginger & Hugo sharing briefly what a really great time they were having so far.  ;) :thumleft: :thumleft:

Heading back out for the next leg :ricky: :ricky:

Quite funny to see just how quickly that group dispersed out of there on the 2nd leg as soon as that Hooter sounded :imaposer: :imaposer:

Was really great also to see this "Red XR & Silver XT"  along the route a few times ;) :thumleft:

Few more random shot of other riders along the way :ricky:

I always enjoy taking photos/video of other riders....along any ride, as I know that not everyone is always keen to stop & take photos all the time....but enjoy it to receive photos of themselves riding. Hopefully I've managed to get a few nice shots of you guys I met along the way. ;)

 :ricky: :ricky:

The last few photos here in this group... is CapeKlr & his wife on their R1200GSA. I have to say that it sure is great to see how well their work together while riding through all types of terrain. ;) :thumleft: :thumleft:

Lilly (CapeKlr's wife) truly is IMHO a "Fantastic Photographer" & has some super tallents in capturing really awesome photos with that Big Digital SLR camera & lens setup :thumleft: :thumleft: Big respect to you guys. ;)

As we started this 2nd leg....both Hugo & Ginger disappeared up in front of me when that hooter went....so it was cool to catch up with Ginger again along the way after passing a few other riders.

Over here by this intersection, it seemed as if the one lady rider got a leg cramp. Trust there was no serious incident here??

In the second last photo...Ginger giving a "2x Thumbs Up" to display here happiness.  ;D
