WELCOME MARK!

Nice to see you a good bike rider hehe. I can introduce you to many who like riding like that.

Hey - Middelpos. If it wasnt for beer and the gateway to Banksgate 4x4 land, what the heck would you do there? I saw the most beautiful wild horses there though, must say.

Middelpos. In the middle of freken nowhere. You want to ride a long dirt road and get bored? Get lost somewhere between Sutherland, over the Ouberg Pas, and then go back to the big Ceres Calivinia road. Freken heck. Bored out of my skull. Only speed can keep you awake there. and a few sand drifts of course  :twisted:

Hi guys

Well I don't know about being a good biker rider but I do enjoy getting off the boring tar and having some fun.

Had a excellent ride with a buddy on sunday to the top of Groot Winterhoek gates out side Porterville

 

Here is the pass that takes you there, all 2nd and 3rd gear stuff...flat out fun
