The ride started off in White River where we met up with [mention]Just Blip It! [/mention] (990S), Colin Morris (Colon)(990R)Wiaan(1090R) an Karl (950S)

We followed the by now very familiar tracks through forestry to get to our playground

My trip nearly ended right there in the forest, taking a big impact on my rear brake lever and bending it under the footpeg. Rear was locked up and it took some gentle persuasion to get it back into place. The BMW VS KTM banter started in all earnest.......

I knew sh!t was getting real when I started seeing markers for the course of the local Lowveld enduro series. We came to what in my mind was clearly a dead end for an adventure bike, but Mark and Colon thought it to be just a mild hick up. It was clearly very doable on a big bike......... :peepwall:

I developed a slight lump in my throat and decided that I needed to follow Mark down as I donít want to spend time psyching myself out watching other guys come down.



Me trying  my utmost to show zero signs of fear

Colon and Karl assisted me and made sure the HP2ís headers and pots werenít damaged on the way down. It is a museum piece after all.....

Next up was Colon, his long legs proving to be very handy in these situations.....
