And then it was Jancoís turn to make sure Joanís battery is connected.



The initial preparation is complete and theyíre ready to be transported to the hotel.

Guys, please excuse us if you donít thank everyone individually for the well wishes.  Just know that we appreciate it.   :thumleft:

Our schedule is quite tight and Iíll update as regular as possible.  Off to a meeting now, but will post some more pics tonight.

We were greeted this morning with a beautiful sunrise.



After breakfast, we set off to Bidvest SACD where the bikes were stored.  Seeing these brand new ATís lined up like that was certainly a goosebump moment and one Iíll remember for a long time.



The moment was however quickly interrupted by the fact that preparation of the bikes must start straight away if we wanted even the slightest chance of finishing over the next two days.

I lived in Durban (Salt Rock) for two years before, but completely forgot how humid it was.  We soon realized that we will have to up our liquid intake if we want to see the day out.

It didnít take the team long to find a rhythm and system that ensured an optimum production sequence. 

With our newfound rhythm, we made good progress and finished earlier than expected.  This gave us enough time to load the 6 privately owned bikes and deliver them to the hotel.

The other bikes are all ridden by the Ride & Drive team to the hotel.

Some pics of the day:

Today was a long day.  All the bikes had to be moved from the warehouse to the hotel.

Not such an easy task when driving through the Durban CBD with a huge trailer in tow.

The jokes and laughs through the sweat and taxi frustrations made up for it though.







The highlight for the day was meeting Jean-Michel Bayle, who joined us for supper.

If you donít know who he is:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Michel_Bayle

ďBorn in Manosque, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Bayle won the FIM 125cc motocross world championship in 1988, and the 250cc motocross world championship a year later. He competed in the United States in 1991, becoming one of few Europeans to win the AMA 250cc and 500cc Outdoor National Championships. Having won all the major motocross championships, Bayle became one of the few riders to switch motorcycling disciplines, going from dirt track motocross events to pavement based road race events.

He competed in the 250cc road racing world championship for the Aprilia factory racing team during the 1994 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season, and in 1996 moved up to the 500cc class for the Kenny Roberts-Yamaha team.[2] He scored points twice in 1999.[3] He managed one pole position in the 250cc class and 2 poles in the 500cc division but, never managed to finish on the podium.[2] In 2002, he teamed with Sťbastien Gimbert and Nicolas Dussauge to win the Bol d'or and the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance races.[1] Bayle suffered serious injuries during the 2002 season and retired from road racing competition.

He still competes in motocross events and campaigned in the French observed trials national championship. Bayle was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2000.[1]Ē

Do yourself a favor and check out this CRF450R test ride with Jean-Michel Bayle and Gautier Paulin.
