believe me Shark, that is what most of the way looks like, once you go past the Elephant entrance, they haven't had any rain, so the roads are full of the soft stuff, even around the ponta's the roads where in a bad state, loads of 4x4's churning up the sand.

Oh yes.....  That sand dictates a little concentration, but fun to ride.

Nice crash bars CP.

Looking forward to the story! 8)

Sand riding is all in the mind............. :wink:


My dad always said: "Go flatout till you see God and then you tap off just a little bit".

The faster you go the more the bike will "plain" on the sand, and the less ruts, etc will influence the bike. The faster the wheel turns, the more gyro effect - less likely to make sudden harse turns  8)  

...........of course you also need a fair amount of fearlessness..........once again back to the mind  8)

Sorry for the hijack  :D

Theory always makes it sound so simple. :wink:  But you are right of course.
