2019 Lowveld Dual Bike Adventure - A Photo report
« on: June 13, 2019, 08:21:01 am »
@Rieks and @Just Blip It! once again put together a fantastic event this year. If you have not participated in one of these you are missing out!

I hope that other WD's will also post their pics and videos here..... :peepwall:

The Winkler was our base for the weekend and the routes were sublime!


PS -  SOME OF THE PICS I'LL BE USING ARE NOT MY OWN AND WERE POSTED ON VARIOUS PLATFORMS BY PARTICIPANTS.

this was one time I was really longing to be there. its a 1000km commute there and another 1000km back, so just doesn't make sense, but I very nearly still went. You guys had awesome fun, will be enjoying the pics to come!

@JesseH , @trevo  and I were planning on riding together on the Black route for day one. As we left the venue, it was clear that a bunch of guys, some of them without GPSs, were latching on to our group for the ride. I was concerned as we were all on smallish bikes and having ridden with Trevor and Jesse before, we were confident with our small group's skill level on the route. Within the first few km, most of the guys had fallen, gotten lost or dropped back off the pace..... :peepwall:

Wiaan was on his first proper offroad ride with the 1090 and was very impressive despite his lack of experience on the big V-Twin

Elsewhere on the route.....






The off-camber descents and climbs with deep erosion ruts and holes were intimidating.
