Show us your sand/dune/mine dump ride
« on: October 06, 2008, 01:37:09 pm »
To start off some mine dump riding outside Benoni on a 1200 GeenSand

Getting ready, lining up, drop the clutch and go


Then up


And over

Namaqua Sands mine on West Coast

It is ahead.


But there is a locked gate.  No problem.  Disconnect the little fence, lay it flat


And ride over it.  Then put the fence back up.


Ride into the surface strip mining area.


Not very deep.


Nice and smooth.


And its big.


But get arrested for trespassing.

2 = good gravel /pillian friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillian friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding 5 = expert only
