KZN WFO Series 2017 -
« on: January 05, 2017, 11:12:22 pm »
37 days to the kick off of the 1st Natal WFO. February 11th, out in Pomeroy which is just up the drag from Tugela Ferry and round abouts the elandskraal/ rourkes drift area. I think its going to be  hot as hell in feb, and with all those rocks, I can only assume it will test ones stamina to the limits.

This will be my first ever WFO, and I cant wait to get started. I have been scheming and plotting to ride a WFO for yonks and now I am commited to doing it. Are there any other first timers riding WFO this year??

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Don't worry, you ride well. Just remember the object of the exercise is to finish, worry about the time you take later. The more you do the better your results will be. Ian

Best of luck Charlie. Saw a guy loading up to go training for it at work this morning. Quite impressed how easily he got his bike onto his 4x4 bakkie without using a loading plank.

How did it go? Did you get your bike back together in time? Ian

There's a trick to load your bike without a ramp. Much easier than it looks once you get the knack. Just make sure you grab the swingarm on the right hand side, otherwise the chain/sprocket can do a very neat finger amputation.

I've always wanted to do the WFO series, but time and distance has never made this possible.

Probably just as well you didn't do this one Rossdog. One competitor succumbed to his injuries and there were a couple of other quite serious tumbles.

Succumbed, as in succumbed? That's hectic man if I understand you correctly.

I love extreme technical riding, the more tech the better, but race organisers tread a fine line between "difficult" and potentially "deadly" nowadays.
