Darling run
« on: September 17, 2018, 06:21:46 pm »
I had an old favorite yesterday morning.  Did a quick run to Darling on the rail service road.  This is the track Andy660 and I used to take the noobs as an intro to some off-road riding.  Not a lot changed in five or six years since I was there last, except for some of the water crossings that is not just a pile of mud.

Sure looks like a, lot of fun Kobus. Definitely would like to join you guys sometime on that route.

Nice run Kobus.

Ek sien die alternative route is lekker vol water

Net genoeg water om nie stowerig te wees nie.  Het net baie lekker rustig gery sonder om te sukkel.

Kwaai.

The next one will be a long one - 650 km one day loop to the base of Ouberg and back.  Need to scout some old routes in the Karoo.  Thinking of doing that on Monday

Yea, I thought 120kph was in the legal limit  ;).
