Hope you are getting your club and MSA goods in order, first EWXC is on 21st Feb, only a month to go.

Yep, EW Club Member No86, medical done and MSA license application submitted, just waiting for my number. Think I will try Novice B, could go Seniors due to my advanced age but I think some Pro will bliksem me if I keep getting in his way.

So Plottie, are you joining us?
Husky TE610 - (Sold)
KDX 200 #C258 - (Sold)
YZ250 2t (on it's way to OZ!!!)
Montesa Cota 315R (Sold)
The Roof - a strenuous hike the through the mountains of Lesotho with a 100kg backpack.  As acid rain falls on the leaves, And Mother Earth quietly grieves, These blasted pollutants Will make us all mutants, And our kids will wear coats with three sleeves.

Because I am riding seniors this year, the advantage is you do the same route as club but get to start most races earlier, less bottlenecks and dust.

I'll get a regional enduro seniors license and still ride the Novice A in the EWXC rides. Because the EW races are maximum club level events you can ride in any class you want with any of the licenses.
In the Natal WFO series is where the earlier start will help a lot.

Is anyone still interested for the 7th or 8th of March ride?

A while back there was some interest for another Kwa Machlangu ride.  Maybe we could do it next weekend.

Who would be interested?

Well, Kwa Machlangu didn't happen this weekend.  So it was back at De Wildt with a couple of friends.

We had a good ride on Sunday (8th March 09).  Plottie, Plathond, Sean and Myself.

Plottie even extended his search for soil on this ride................

Check the ride report.

With Gary's accident, I have not pushed the issue. Apparently it was on order, but probably arrived by now
