Retro Roof of Africa 2019

This looks interesting. Basically seems like it can accommodate any bike that can go on dirt.

edit: Although a pity it is the same weekend as Tankwa. ...why not grow the sport in SA instead of having competing events?  :patch:

I was looking at going up to that event until I noticed the date clash. I mentioned it on their FB page as well. Real pity because it will probably be a great ride. I see it's MSA registered as well so they cocked it up by double booking the weekend  :(

Interesting to see this name on the start list, I thought he had left the country after the Rally fiasco :imaposer:

Do tell for those of us not in the know?  :pot:

Ja it looks like a fun event. I'm gearing myself up, mostly i.t.o. saving money to do one or two events next year. Tankwa obviously being #1, if this is around next year on a different date then maybe this will be #2.

Dis die ou wat n potensiele baie goeie rally opgedinges het, ryers deur  boere so grond laat jaag het sonder toestemming en verder nie eers almal wat hy geld skuld betaal het nie.
Toe pawpaw die fan strike likwideer hy homself en staan nie man vir wat hy drooggemaak het of skuld nie


Hyt bietjie guts om sy gesig weer in enige msa events te wys selfs as n deelnemer ek dink daar is nog n paar ouens wat hom wil beetkry

On the bucket list to go and view one day, nice website and liked the retro stuff- good memories of the 70's, 80's and 90's - Any Capies going up there- would like to lay my hands on one of these tees

Why does the name imply "retro" when Booker for instance, is on a newish 530?
