Dankie!

Die MotoZ het baie goed gedoen! 2600km en het nog ten minste nog zoveel of meer oor.
Dunlop D606 voor het ook mooi geloop, maar hy het meer afgeloop as wat ek verwag het

Ek het Desert HT agter op. Jy sal waarskynlik meer kilos uit n Adventure kry. Ek het tans die RallZ op my 990 en hy hou ook goed. Dis egter sagter compound en sal nie so lank soos Adventure of Desert HT hou nie

Ek het nogal daaraan geding.... maar dit kan nie naby kom aan die hoeveelheid keer wat mens moet afklim vir hekke op Rammelkoppas  :lol8:

As jy suid gehou het van Loeriesfontein is daar loop oor die Hantam wat jou by Nieuwoudtsville uitbring, en dan draai regs, die bordjie se "Moedverloor"  -  meeste hekke ooit.

I enjoyed reliving this trip through this report. I am still somewhat envious how you and Henry rode those big bikes in the sandy bits.  I will practice and next time I might be brave enough to bring the heavier bike.

If anybody read this report and would like to do it as well but not alone then I suggest you contact @WildWood , he regularly organises trips through that area.

It surely seemed to track nicely, and did not take the usual 5 hour big-bike time to plane after pull-away. it was on top of the sand within meters. It performed very well indeed. :thumleft:

Nox made an adjustment to my forks a few months ago and since then it has been amazing in the little bit of sand we get to ride in the Lowveld. Before that, I always felt like I wasn't quite as comfortable in sand as I had been on the 790R

Just a few clicks on compression if I recall

@Tman21 was kind enough to send me one of those tools he had extra to adjust preload on forks

Ek het dieselfde ervaring gehad, so twee jaar gelede. Ons het die eerste aand in Prins Albert geslaap en by 'n restaurant gaan eet. Daar was beurtkrag en 5 min nadat die krag aangekom het, het ons kos gekom. Ons vermoed die kos was dalk bietjie af, of nie heeltemal deur warm gemaak nie.

Ek moes vir die res van die trip oorleef op Energade en PVM energy bars - het 'n maag aandoening "of note" gehad waarvoor geen medikasie wou help nie. :-[
