I'm already going on a trip that next week, so I'm out for this one if it is 24/03.

If date should move or you have another on 27/04 I might just join.

Wish i could make the 24th but doing long trip leaving on the 21st already. If organised again after school holidays in April i am in.
Enjoy

Guys, I'm pretty easy as far as dates are concerned - very understanding wife-

Which means that I can ride on the 24th and make a plan for after the school holidays and I think SchalkL might appreciate it being then, since he lives out that way.

What say you?

I'm pretty confident of securing a Mampoer tasting on the trip. Just saying.....

So you up for 2 trips???  :pot:

I should be able to do either option (and maybe both?)

Would have joined you all on this one but still on Gough. Love to ride in the Marico area. That first bash that ZAR organised was great and a great venue. Can unfortunately not recall the name of the farm

Geez. 12 months and no riding, no wonder you haunt the RnP section. Seems as if we might get a group together for the 24th  :ricky:

I'm still keen as well

Sandle Up - what accommodation did you have in mind?

Read on another Marico related thread about fellow forum members with offerings in the area...

Edit - just noticed you were active on that thread looking forward to your suggestions

Guys the ride is still providing that the weather holds up and does not start pissing as predicted. Other than it being an achievement for not landing on your back in snot mud, it interests me very little :biggrin:

Because it seems as if it will only be the three of us going (unless there are more takers needing to escape the city) I reckon we will have to be self sufficient and cater for own graze and refreshments. Will secure us a place to stay over. Very basic but it will do for adventure bikers.

Lets follow up on Wednesday
