Hi Guys,

Tnx Brett, Dave & Co for support - like anything,we like to finish what we started .....Its been a busy year & would have loved more time but no excuses. Our group have been burning midnight oil to get done & we are nearly there.
Wish I could enter (officiating instead) but, just before dark yesterday ran Loop A. The loop is nothing short of exhilarating !!! had the Raptor 700 on song.
Ran out of light on Loop B and turned back however - it is excellent and has everything to test all round skills, if not racing at full pace one will get to see so much. Going up for the day tomorrow will log loops A & B so we can send out the files.

We have also marked dangers & enough to manage without GPS. 

ENTRIES CLOSE TONIGHT,  mail me for manual entry form   info@westerncapeoffroad.co.za     all details are up at WCOC website.
Admin will close & move to Tankwa on Wednesday evening - thereafter no or little coms
Possible late entries Friday evening only - NO ENTRIES ON Sat your bikes will need to in the impound by 7:30 20km away.

Enjoy the experience

lol.. im on it..

Im not keen on paying R200 just because I cant get a letter from my medical aid in time but I have requested it

I normally would have done this on the Transalp but I think the 450 will be good although the front suspension is all wrong so ill be like a snail compared to some of the okes.. thankfully you don't need a GPS because I smashed my ram mount in the quarry when a tree jumped out infront of me and attacked me.. it was very traumatic

Murray & all you guys entering - THANK YOU

MSA red tape is one thing many of us still working on, but insurance etc ... is a must.
More important you will get more than just a race ...

Drive safe & see you up there

I'm in. If all goes well I'll be there with the rally bike else the 300. Once the GPS tracks have been sent out it is my intention to create a roadbook for the event to make it a bit more like a rally.
See you all on Friday  :ricky:

What is your preferred format (gpx, kml, gdp)

What are you using to convert to Roadbook (RallyNavigator etc. ?)

A few pics , David Thomas on his Dakar bike , to say that he won is bit of an understatement , the Buff who by the way was the only 690 in a race that was much more suited to the 450's , and Riki Mans who will embarrass a lot of guys .

Fuzzy Muzzy , Murray had a hard time over the weekend but persevered , way to go bud you are a star , and then of course the result of trying to get too much out of a flat tyre

And of course life can be such a bitch at times , especially when the extremely likable and down to earth Dave Thomas offered me a ride on his Dakar Bike , the Husqvarna 450 Rally , and it is awesome  :thumleft:
