Anybody know when the organizers send out the routes and how we get them for this event? This is a first for me the other events I have been to the routes were emailed to us.

I read that they will be sent out next week.

I am unfortunately not going. Maybe I am being unnecessarily paranoid, but with the amount of bikes being stolen in that area I decided not to take the chance.

I'm sure they are aware of it and will have additional security there.

I bought a lock anyway to use for additional safety and will be securing it to my tent also  :biggrin:

Tracks usually sent out a week or so before the event to be loaded to your gps

GPS4Africa usually on hand at event to assist with loading track as well

Extra precautions being taken for security. Community forum will also be patrolling streets for the duration of the event.

Route maps been sent out on Monday 26th this coming week is the latest info.
Yep. At least chain or lock your bike in some manner and make it a difficult target.
Me using a disk lock and a stainless steel cable as a deterrent.

Looking forward to a good ride and entertainment from the boys facing off on the challenge.
Stop talking and start riding

On whose part?
The BMW event was announced (and planned) months before the ktm one.... One wonders if this was a strategic move from KTMSA?

I compared price when deciding where to go. The Trophy is a 2 hour offroad ride from my house and cost less than R4000p/p for me and my riding buddy incl 4 star accommodation. If I remember correctly, KTM Rally was more than double that.

Of course I wouldve liked to go to both, but even if events were held on different dates, Id probably still end up going to the Trophy.

Bummer for us down in the Cape, long way for both events... still also trying to figure out why LTM Rally is so expensive?

Going to KTM event, done heaps of GS events, never done a Ktm event.. like to see how the wild ones play..  >:D
