I don't have a gps track sorry. But please do keep in mind that the area on the mountain is nature conservation and forestry ground. So please do take care when riding there.


Thanks

bike, when I noticed that it is attached to his arm! Then I saw the ball on the left hadlebar. All I can say is;WOW Leftless!!!!!!

Hey 2SD.  Its the best tool ever...  It comes with bottle opener, Leatherman, tyre repair ki, etc etc,  and never gets cold holding a spare bear   O0.

ROV Rat.  These are some great tracks.  I'll try it next time with an inflated front wheel.  The bike felt all wrong the whole day and found the front completely flat when i got home. 

Note to self have more coffee before you ride...

Thanks everyone for great company

Leftless

R-O-V-Rat, ou had to show that picture now didn't you?! I was only take a closer look at some of the fynbos, appreciating nature and all of that!

2T-Dan, you and Gideon should have stayed, the second half of the ride was definately worth it.

Thanks R-O-V-Rat, I enjoyed myself and slept like a baby Sunday night!

Thanks so much RR that was a stunning ride , !! What an adventure . It had everything I could have hoped for on a ride, and more ( too much in fact !!) .... great company , beautiful scenery and views , as well as being quite a challenging route for me, and esp on that heavy bike.....although the bike did surprisingly well,  it was more my nerves that got in the way ,and I had a few " sidestand incidents " in the sand, and also needed a push on that steep rocky bit . Thanks for all the help guys ;)


 
Its impossible, said pride. Its risky, said experience. 

Its pointless, said reason. Give it a try, whispered the heart.

Is that a small CRF or XR in the mids?
