My race was good but finished where I normall do ............  ::)

It was a tough track but had a bit of everything in it. I was shattered driving home and slept for 12 hours straight that night .............. oh, to be young again !!!

Oh yes ........ it's all I have. It's well suited to this open, fast racing. A bit of a handfull in the slow, tight twisty stuff, it doesn't like turning very much  :biggrin:

Not a race winning machine at all but it just goes and goes and goes ..............................  I've passed hundreds of KTMs broken down in the veld over the years but haven't had the 'pleasure' myself.

Would be a good Tankwa weapon but I can't make it this year - just can't afford a week away.  :'(

For those who wanna do a race, there's one coming up on the 8th at the Vaal. No license required. Similar setup to GXCC.

My son said that Rysmierbult was a bit more technical than what he likes.

Next weekend there is a Farmjam in Middelburg - nice tracks.
