Please make it on my off weekend!  Then you'll eventually get to try the 950!

It is a fenced off area safe from hippos and buffalo,



So Manic isn't coming?


I am in.

Either or Ri, but you'd have to be pretty dedicated to ride your 230 from Cape Town to Nuwejaars River.  :biggrin:

I won't be fast but I'll get there eventually :laughing4:

Depending on dates, I would love to join as well.

OK then, it seems there are enough bikes to form a recce posse. Let's try peg a date, starting with Billy Joe's off weekend, whenever that may be.

If anyone wants to be a guinea pig outside of the date we peg, we can possibly make an arrangement. My phone number is zero7nine 695 8372. WhatsApp is better, as I'm often out and about where cell reception is not great.

It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

Please NOT before or on the weekend of 15 March... unless it's @billy-joe 's off weekend. In that case I'll make other arrangements.

Chances are not everyone will make it over 1 weekend anyway, so we might spread it over 2 weekends anyway. It will make the group sizes smaller too.
