Look I don't know this Chuck guy either, but I will share this: My life has changed since riding Breedtsnek. as I was sitting there on top of the world, it dawned on me I have to change my life. I am now no longer having Corn flakes for breakfast, only muscle building Pro Nutro, I thought of changing my wife for 2 x 25 year olds, but she pleaded with me and I had to let that go. Maybe I'll move down to the Cape somewhere, but that would be too far from my nemesis so I had to pass on that too. Oh and I only run my car on 95 high octane fuel now. I am a changed man.

Come from the Krugersdorp side only, dont go to the Shebeen and Buffelspoort......................went down that side last year on the 1150GS, broke the bash plate bolts clean off, crashbars held the whole thing together...............

It was really ugly  :peepwall:

I think need to go to hospital just reading this!

I was taking a sip of my beer and then started to spray it out, and and then  tried to hold it in - I nearly died!

Some great action shots of the carnage - your photographer just seems to be in the right place at the right time, who was he?

I just finished a SciFi novel Extinction: Task Team, download the preview.

Living in Rustenburg we ride Breedts more than most, must say have never considered it particularly difficult on the XR, just pick the line and keep the momentum going and you are bound to make it... On a bigger bike things obviously look different lol... ;D

The pass has deteriorated badly last few years though and the rains do not help.... but the worse it gets the less cars travel the pass making it heaven to ride on a bike.. :thumleft:

Hel Guys, you are really hard core. You can call yourself the Chosen Few for managed it.

This little Mountain Pass have a bad reputation. It even eats Aeroplanes and the Vultures are in radio contact with each other to pick up the scraps.
(That megafter plakked on itís back is some tracking device I presume)
