1 HosePower ride report
« on: August 01, 2006, 04:56:40 pm »
Now for a different kind of "ride" report

This was a recent trip, from Kosi Bay, down to Sodwana.
4 days, about 100km.

One needs quite a bit of "stuff" for this kind of ride


This is me and my ride. 1 full horsepower called HERCULIES !
Great shocks, no other mods, f#$%$% hard seat.


One mother of a river crossing.


Like always, one needs to refuel !



A trip through the forest


Splashing though lake Sibaya


a man and his horse...


me = cowboy ! ....muahahaha



and last but not least...lots of ASS !




one of the best trips of my life.
The "knoblies" worked great, so the sand was no match.

Motorbikes can only dream of where these thing can go,
but then again...motorbikes dont bite :)

Ditto on the pants.  Done it in jeans once - was left without hair on my legs.... :cry:

Great ride, not an expert with horses but did ride a little and played a bit of PoloCross

Nah man, I think its the jersey around your waist or something that brings that idea. Doesnt matter.

Nice report though. Did ride once in jeans, oh my donder.

Anyway, I always hurt my cajones when I ride, so I gave it up.

Thanks again, cool report

haha, I dont really know, I dont compare. I think its got a lot to do with technique. No matter how many underpants I throw on, my cajones get squashed. Eina.
