Must say, this is quite something.

Itchy, on a dead bog standard Honda CRF250L, makes mincemeat out of all that Ready-to-race weaponry around her??

I will repeat myself once again, especially for you Danie.

She is in the Adventure Raid group.  We have no idea how well the guys on the "ready-to-race" weaponry around her is.  What we do know, is that they are not licenced racers.  Surely, even you (no, ESPECIALLY you) should understand how a competent rider on a 250 can kick the ass of a beginner, learner, or rich oke with a brand new bike on a 450.

No......the 30 okes behind her are all of good talent, on Rally bikes. :biggrin: :pot:

Well, she didn't stop for smoke breaks, beer breaks, kakpraat breaks, etc.  :lol8:

Let me ask you this.  So, I don't ride much off road.  Did a bit on a DR650 some years ago.  I didn't much enjoy it, so I swopped for a 700 Raptor quad.  Do you think if I was on a 450 "ready-to-race" bike and you were on a standard 250 Honda and we had a little 100km off road race, I would automatically beat you?  A yes / no answer would be nice.

Well done to her but lets be honest adv bike class is a world apart from a real rally stage, certainly what we have seen so far that was a typical Sunday out ride. I reckon she thinks she is faster than she "really" is  :deal: I would also rather be on a 250 than a big ADV bike, I'm surprised people think a 250 can not do 700km in a day  ???

For sure, she is not real rally class standard at the mo, still, she improved a hell of a lot, and good for her if she think she is going fast, it can only boost he confidence.



Yes, she did increase in ability, and obviously confidence. Quite a step to participate in this sort of ride, even if it is watered down.
Lol!!

Every compliment has a but

Wonder how it goes with employee reviews over there.

This is what's so handy about the modern-day interwebs media, what took Peterhansel a decade to achoeve, Noraly did in one short rally ride.

Easily impressed and eagerly waiting millenials like Grunder is just waiting to devour every snippet from this influencer. :peepwall: :pot:

Is this a employee review? :biggrin:

I had to smile, she was intending to do her normal camera thing and stop to interview... but as she says, once the flag came down, she never stopped again - finish line above all else. The red mist had gripped her. She was riding way beyond her normal pace and loved it.
Somedays, life's like a middlemannetjie.
