This was my digs for the weekend. I basically parked my bakkie, took out my bike kit and threw a mattress and pillows in the back and I was sorted  :thumleft: Honestly, what more does a man need?  ;D

Thanks Clive! I checked out the results  :thumleft:
. . . you nearly killed me on an easy day of track setting, barely giving me hope that one day I could enter the race . . . and then you klap me with the news of a 750 -1000 km!!!
SOUNDS AWESOME!

Herman  - we are thinking about including adventure bikes next year where they would exclude some technical sections (if there is enough interest ???  Dave (Beserker is keen to help manage that section). Will start posting early 2018 to see interest.

Been promising some pics, and now shamelessly pilfered..

This sounds hugely interesting, hopefully we'll see some of those Honda Quest boys on the line showing us what that Africa Twin can do in a race  >:D
