Farmjam 2018 (New DS Class)
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:26:05 pm »
Hey guys,

Anyone else entering the race this Saturday? They have two Dualsport classes. Under 1000cc and then 1000cc and over. I did the race last time on my Husky 701 and it was great fun. You race the same track as the dirtbikes. There was a bit of mud and sand at the first race, nothing hectic though :) You also do not need any race licenses and you can enter on the day, cost is R450. Race is at Dirttrax Middelburg venue, not too far from Witbank. Would be cool to see some dogs there.

 :P Too late notice for me...although I'd rather be overtaking GSs than holding up 701s... Pity it's not "Under 999cc"  :deal:

I'll be there on a plastic.

But will keep an eye on the DS class - maybe one for a future date  :thumleft:

No way I'm taking a 950 across those rocks, though!!

Last time we only did the small rock pit. I don't think they'll let the DS bikes do any of those difficult enduro obstacles. I hope not at least :P

I made a video! Farmjam DS class was epic. It was a fairly tough race overall on bigger bike with all the mud etc and I had a fall quite a big fall near the start. Managed to scrape myself together and still finish, yay! Still awesome and I'll definitely be back for more punishment at the next one. Hope to see some more dogs there on their DS bikes!


I hope this works...

It was a nice ride. Unfortunately i got a puncture on lap 2 coming down that rocky section.

My son broke his front brake on lap 1 but completed 4 laps on the 300. On lap 2 he crashed into a fence on a 90 degree right hander. Luckily i was behind him and managed to get him going again.

Took me the whole afternoon to strip and clean the bikes. Must still do all the repair work.

Thank you! Yes there was a bit of everything on the track. Mostly mud though, but sand, rocks, jumps water crossings, twisty forest trails, wide open roads where you could get some speed. Really action packed! :)

Another great race! The track was quite a bit easier than the previous one :) Terrain fast and flowing with some forest single track, a short sand section, two river crossings and a little bit of rocks. Still hope this class can grow as it really is a fun event :) I took no 1 spot on DS podium yesterday with my Husky 701. Will share more photos once they are available from the photographers :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Sometimes you don't need a plan, just balls :)
I'd rather ... be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God than sitting ... in Church and thinking about my motorcycle.

Gelukkig was ek vroeer by die huis so ek en my seun het gery.

Hy was 4de in 2 smokers en ek 4de in seniors. Was n lekker baan en niks rerig tegnies vir die plastieks nie maar kan dink daar was paar tricky plekke vir DS bikes.

Wat 'n voorreg om saam jou seun dit te doen. Julle altwee sal dit onthou vir ewig. Geniet jou kinders so lank jy kan  :thumleft:
