because us down to earth, non-poser type DS riders arent allowed on the GS Challenge (probably because we'll show them up), i have decided that we should host our own challenge called the BS Challenge.

we will meet in a central spot like brakpan. once there we can ride over planks, around steel drums, and see who can balance the longest - no bike involved, balance is challenging enough when youre as pissed as we're gonna be.
then we will race around a mine dump and have different coulour trails:
pink - for sissies, naturally
blue - really technical, thus you'll be blue all over from falling over so much
green - this applies in the bar area, the more you drink, the greener you get

the trails will be a reflection of real-africa riding. there will be stone throwing locals, a maze problem in a squatter camp where you must find your way out past the chopshop and hijack syndicate, through the latrine area, over the glass and nail infested building rubble section, and an inner city section with real taxis doing sudden lane changes and emergency stops. each nite we will have a kwaito dance competition. the most challenging challenge of the challenge will be the economics section - similar to Monopoly, you will have to buy fuel, biker gear and spare parts with a weakening rand - nailbiting stuff!


at the end there will be a prize giving for the most falls.
points will be allocated randomly.
remember it is not a race, but finishing first scores you a win.

you will not be allowed entry if you dont have the same matching headlamp as everyone else, and at least one part of your bike says touratech or motorrrradd

at the end of the challenge we will all get a GABSBSSCGCBGC sticker to put on our bike as proof that we were there.

oh yes, no BMW's allowed!

!Merv Hughes & Viv Richards: During a test match in the West Indies, Hughes didn't say a word to Viv, but continued to stare at him after deliveries. "This is my island, my culture. Don't you be staring at me.In my culture we just bowl." Merv didn't reply, but after he dismissed him he announced to the batsman: "In my culture we just say f*** off."

I wonder who voted Poser thing to the poll recently held. KE - was it you?

I dont think its posers, but I do find it interesting thats it does attract a whole section of navel gazers. Reminds me of the church - quite insular and truly inward looking.

Thats why i love riding in this new crowd - many different makes of bikes, no penis envy and an appeciation of what each bike offers. Sorry for the jack.

Of course, its not a slating of the old gs vs the rest crap. The GS Challenge is great, I wish there was a big DS challenge that we could all go attend.

one things for sure. You know its not the bike who wins, its for sure the rider at the GS Challenge. It certainly levels the playing field considerably.

And anyway, its not a competition.

That would make your insurance void, its a get together.
They call it a challenge as its a challege to ride the dirt roads on a GS.

They do a balancing challenge as a sub event for those with compeditive streaks

And these guys throw stones.........
If there was a KTM Challenge I would try and borrow/rent one to take part. BM's are rentable, instead of sour grapes, hire one and join us.
