So the Tankwa quali is not over the long weekend which is 10-13 Apr?  Then I'm having 2 long weekends in a row :imaposer:
Hi Bill
Unfortunately I have a family wedding on over the long weekend 10-13 April so the date is def 4/5 April
For those travelling from far I'm happy to throw in an extra day on the 6th(April) Monday and take a guided tour (Bikes/Quads) to some other parts of Tankwa at no extra charge. We want people to experience Tankwa

Will announce details soon

Cheers

Ja sien ek trou nou self ook daardie langnaweek na die qualifier, ek sal moet fyn beplan en ek gaan moet mooi ry en nog mooier praat my vrou dinges n aap as ek met n gebreekte arm by ons troue opdaag.

Twee vrae

So moet ek nou n jaar lisensie uitneem of kan ek n one event license vir die qualifier en weer n one event vir die rally uitneem?.
Moet ek qualifier ry om die rally te gaan ry? Of kan ek net die rally gaan ry?

One event licenses can only be purchased once the even entries are open just before a race and only purchased online at www.motorsport.co.za
It is better to join the club www.capexcountry.co.za (only R250) we are  affiliated to MSA then purchase a cross country CLUB license online at MSA.
You don't have to do the qualifier in April to race in Sept  but we suggest you try a cross country or off-road as Sept is quite tuff.

No they (GPS) don't have to be wired to bike ( We changed the regulations for 2020). Depending on how they were wired we found they would still switch off and have to be rebooted.
The best option are the silicone J Mounts from Curtis Mobile or Flying Brick in CPT.

keep the questions coming - will answer as I can

with all the ride cancellations , looking at upcoming events, this one looks interesting, I see vintage is pre 2005 ??? , might look at it on a 82 DR 500. Wondering about mounting all that navigation stuff on an old bike,  do you need all this stuff on vintage bike, looking at the web site they seemed to be combined with the sept event now, if we back on stream. any input fron guys in the know, Beserker :deal:

Just enter the GPS only class. You no longer need to wire in your GPS, you can run it on batteries  :thumleft:
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

Whichever one you choose DR BIG 750 make sure that you practice with it beforehand and learn it's quirks. You may want to set it so it doesn't switch off when the power is interrupted and choose which colour contrast of background and track is the best for you in sunlight and shade. Some units will show all tracks, some just the one you have loaded. Also choose if you want the device to point North or your direction of travel. My choice is North it gives you an overview of where you are on the loop but if you are heading South then you have to learn to read it upside down. My personal choice would be to use 2 GPS units. An Etrex 20 with a map set at about 2km out and an Etrex 10 or 20 with or without map set to 200m out. Power them up with vehicle electrics or a cellphone storage battery as it means you can leave the back light running on full power rather than reverting to low setting with the internal battery but have batteries in anyway; things go wrong.
