Bietjie sand op n winter Dinsdag more
« on: July 18, 2018, 10:11:59 am »
Beplan so ietsie groot in Augustus, so bietjie beplanning nodig en natuurlik bietjie oefen...

Gister saam Michelle n draai gaan ry, saaltyd en hoof fokus - sand. Net eers om gewoond te raak. Moet erken Michelle het redelik goed gedoen en sal volgende week dit n notch opvat.

En was baie spesiaal om weer saam  haar die dag te spandeer  :love4:

Awesome. Looks like it was a great day out there in that sand.

Was a little disappointing in the "thickness"... we rode this section a few times over the years and this time it was the easiest ever. The "chicken run" was must worse, as it was ge -ploeg.

Just shows how conditions changes

Hey @alwyn_gs  ... is that a secret spot or can you share with  WD's. I'm always looking for spots to ride where I can practice sand. I've found it is something I have to work on regularly otherwise the sand gets between my ears and then  a  trip that should be awesome turns into a very long procession of tedious struggle

Must say it must've been "fun" taking that big 1200 with a 19 inch front through those sandy furrows   >:D

This time around the farmer (natuurlik van n ander kerk) stopped and wanted to know what is going on, quickly defused the situation.... but the first time in 8 years that we actually seen life on this stretch of road. Technically there are no gates, but after patch of sand there are a few gates.

But honestly, it is quite far from Pretoors for 800-1000m of sand, it is a neat outride though, but if you want to practice sand, Rhino Park is the answer...
