Using a 10 year old Honda. The rider is pretty archaic, but not a real good vintage🤣

Ooooh, Camelman aka Alexander was toying with the idea of a vintage class for Amageza, but he was thinking 30 years old as the cutoff. Who would be game to ride a pre-1989 bike?
I think it is a brilliant idea.

Donít be so sure. A properly set up KX or CR500 will be hard to beat if the course is anything other than straight dirt roads

Doing a full rebuild & restoration on my 82 XR500R...

If all goes well she will be there participating in the Vinduro class, just look for the cleanest 500.... :lol8:

Looking forward, heard a lot of interest for this class....the thumpers are going to dominate the Tankwa...
