2014 - BMW GS Eco - Out of the archives
« on: March 07, 2020, 07:00:44 pm »
It was to be my firt BMW event. I had just bought an HP2 a couple of months prior and had virtually zero experience or skill.....

There was also an effort to set an unofficial record for the amount of HP2s together assembled at an event. I think we ended up with 23

Remember meeting a lot o new people (WDs) incl @Yupa , @KarooKid @VaalBaas @BigDom @Kalahari Leeu @JacoM @Rolling Stone  @Transporter @Grolls @1ougat @Leo

Yupa and I set out on the Green route. This was frowned upon and we were told in no uncertain terms that HP2 s  do not belong on the green route ....... We both felt that we did not have the riding skill to join them on the more challenging routes.

It wasn't long before we arrived at the first challenge. It looked insurmountable ........ @VaalBaas reckoned it wasn't .......
