I can vouch for Sprockets camera work, but why the close up of an early morning babbie??
Will have to sort you out on Friday :)

So true, we rode everything from gravel roads, two spoor tracks covered in 4 foot grass, water crossings, mud, sand and a technical 6km uphill erosion rutted pass.

Damn it was fun.

Is it bad taste to show the poor victim?  That was a big one.  I hope you and your bike heal well.

That little ditch caught me out for sure. It had a diameter that was close to 21" and I was not sure there would be enough traction to lift the front wheel over.....so I approached with too much caution and then stalled the bike just when it straddled the ditch. My legs didn't want to grow fast enough.

And then GoGirl went and did something similar! Pic doesn't do justice to the ditch.

Working on the other pics, patience please.
Ja right....that was not a high tech camera you were riding mate....you just fell off yer bike!!!
