And then there is the Rally Jacket, who is the best and where do we buy at what price.

Gerrit du Toit offered to help in this department, his wife Marique is a designer of note with some rad skills.

After about 3 prototypes and “some” testing by myself and Willem du Toit we now have locally made, kick ass Jackets for Dakar.

A brand was launched

Fantastic DONOVAN!! :thumleft:

This thing is getting real so fast!  :ricky:

We are all so, so excited for you.

Boet, do you need help with some key phrases that I can write out for you to print and put in your helmet or something? You won't believe how important communication can be at times.

Malle Moto is not for sissies  . . .
You have done Malle Moto in two Amageza Rallies and you have done very well in the bivy, I have watched you closely.
You are well organised and technically, you know your bike and you have the skill to do what is required.
It is only 2 Amageza Rallies in one go, you have it all to do it No 125 !

Yip, can't wait for the Dakar to start. With so many local ysters to support, I'll be sitting most evenings hitting the F5 button on that Nederlandse chappie's website with the live timing...  Let's roll!

Good luck to all competitors, and the very best of luck to all the Saffers!!!
