No need to apalogize bud!  Remember that lots o pics were taken, especially of some dogs smashing into poor horses, maiming and killing them.... :(

Yip, I did have a nice wipe-out of the front  wheel with that brownish rock, and yes it does not feel lekker not being able to pick up the pig in the snotty stuff but at least Lourens came to my assistance....... although with a little mistakie, colliding with my front wheel. :dousing:

Pornstar cameraman Herr Gunther aka Dazed got his pic (at the expense of the poor oke in the bakkie) and the rest is history...

You have just been nominated by your fellow mates to do the RR. Just remember to include all the mishaps as well as show what can be done on a GSA (re:ON-RNR)

Saniâ??s is only for tuff off-road bikes and one two orange adventure bikes piloted by riders with skills matching those of David Knight or may be Darrel Curtis for the less informed.


Anyway we where not embarrassedâ?¦.. after all it was just us me and my matesâ?¦ ?? up to now.

Infighting between choms as to who gets the honours!, but in the meanwhile allow me to entertain you with some off the beaten track action.

Now ON-RNR can really ride a bike!, I had yet to have seen a look of panic on this normally calm operator, that is until Naude's Nek detour pass(currently being cut by the grandson of the illustrious Naude).

In this sequence of pictures, we had unsuccessfully attempted to summit this new route. In the process of getting his bike back, one mr. ON-RNR forgot to disengage ABS! ENJOY

Some pics dissapeared! retry 1. The pics don't do justice as to the steepness of this hill. It was incredibly steep.

That, as Dazed has correctly commented was steep. Turning my adventure bike around on that incline, not hi-siding it and come rolling down the mountain was an adventure on its own.  Its amazing how youâ??re bike can start looking like a ball in yr mind if the possible scenarios flash thru your head.
Anyway got the bike facing down but to get it rolling had to start and ride it out.
Once out the hole the ABS did its job by not skidding on the loose gravel and gravity said â??we want you in the center of the earthâ?ť and â??weâ?ť me and she just picked up speed towards the cliff.
At the last minute I had to make use of BMWâ??s cleverly design last chance emergency braking system. Thus being hooks situated on each side of the bike which you suppose to hook to anything that you can find.
I did just that ever so slowly and lost my footing in the presses and landed on my back still trying to hold the clutch as the bike wanted to crawl towards the edge.
This pic show the steepness off the slope as you can see I am lying higher then the bike.
With any other bike which doesnâ??t come standard with this emergency braking system I would have lost my scrambler or should it be tourer down the mountainâ?¦â?¦                     
wait...lets talk about it all in our RR

I wish someone would design a ABS system for dirt roads, I think it will work better if only the front wheel is fitted with ABS. The back wheel could then be locked and side skidded without the front sliding out.  I wonder if this wil work?

Beautifull okes! Looks like you all had fun!

i'm sure the rear abs sensor can be disconnected or jippo'ed in a way to not take the rear wheel into consideration

any good hobby electronics guy should be able to get that to work

or leave the sensor in place just disable the pressure relieve valve on the rear brake

so it will kick in and but will have no effect on the rear

Surely you can't disable ABS sensors on either wheel, doesn't it measure the difference in rotation speeds between the two wheels to figure if one of them is locked? 

In other words, in theory, if you lock both your wheels AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME, you should be able to override the ABS as well  ;D
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
