I also did a quick solo trip to Haenertsburg this morning
The water level of the Ebenezer dam is very low

Went to play at the local quarry/track this morning.
Great fun moving the 800 through the obstacles

Did a ride past Craigieburn dam and through Darkest Africa on Saturday. Unfortunately my KTM burst a radiator pipe which meant the end of the trip. Thanks to Highsider for towing me out the bush, then to Gary for pillioning me on his 690, sans footpegs, some 130km all the way home in the rain. That 690 is a great bike, but not designed for two  :biggrin:

 
How can I be lost when I have got nowhere to go?

Attempted Old Mill Drift pass on Saturday in the rain. Was a lot of fun. Such a beautiful place. Got about 200m into the Bokpoort turnoff, about halfway up the pass, when I encountered a badly rutted and super slippery section which essentially ended my effort. Doable on a 650 when its dry but certainly nothing bigger.

Thats exactly as far as I got on my R1200GS Adventure - and then spent an hour turning it around to get back down again - I cannot wait to get back there on the X-Challenge!!

I may be keen on something even smaller..
