I guess a swingarm is not the type of thing you fix with some bloudraad from a fence unfortunately.

I See Ross Riddle has been parked on the N18 next to the route for a while I wonder if it's a cp maybe? Ross Branch was stationary there for what looked like a few min and Roger as well. Ross Branch just got moving again a minute ago.

Must be a CP or something next to the road/N18 there. Guys are spending a lot of time in that spot. Can't imagine they would have a refuel in the middle of a SS? Even then, Roger is still there and has been for a few min now.

Was a CP with a 15 min decontrol.

So for those not in the know, what's a "decontrol" ?

I was wondering that same thing Oom Adie. Saw someone comment on Fb he should weld it, I guess to finish a stage but I wouldn't trust a weld there for the rest of the race.

There is no way a cast aluminium part that is as heavily stressed as that can be welded.

I dont think the normal 690 Enduro swing arm will fit. Remember he is riding a 690 Rally, which is a totally different bike to the normal 690 enduro and if I remember correctly from Lyndons talk a few weeks ago, the 690 Rally has a longer swing arm. I know that the 450 Rally has a longer swing arm than the enduro 450. Increased wheel based for better high speed stability.

Maybe he can get a swingarm off one of the riders that are already out due to injury?

Ross Riddle was waiting for Roger Kane Berman at the splash and dash control refuel. We were allowed 15 min to assist in fuel and loading the road book that had to be cut in two as it wouldn’t fit in the road book holder!!! Greg has offered Lyndon his.
My tracker has not been switched off yet but unfortunately I am not playing anymore part of this Rally.
The cars have had a tough day too, CEntury Racinf buggy crashes but it seems Bryan Bara and Corbett are okay. The other CR buggy had a crash with car number 313.

Sorry to hear Ross.

Other Ross is standing still for way too long now, something must be wrong or the tracker is playing up.

I see on Instagram that Lyndon is good to go again - oke just keeps on going hey.

Got feedback from Martins wife that Lyndon is swopping out the swingarm off Gregs bike on the side of the road and then he's going to try and finish the stage  :thumleft: The okes spirit is resolute, I love it  :thumleft:

bliksem, Lyndon het so pas weer op die SS gekom, 'n klompie km voor hy weer is waar die swingarm gebreek het.

dit gaan 'n lang dag wees. na die SS is dit nog 244km Liason.
