WC - Alternate route this SUNDAY 11th July
« on: July 11, 2010, 12:17:38 pm »
I`m very jealous stuck here at home with broken bones.
Just spoke to Crossed Up , says there is stacks of water around ,they are towing a certain DRZ that drowned in a water crossing.

He will call me once they get up Koringberg mountain.

Hi guys, yes the Tenere's turned around  :'(
But as it may, you guys saw how far we made it with what one would say :peepwall: street tires ;D
Not even my TKC 80 proved to be up to it :pot:
The Super 10 was a bit to heavy and a bit powerful for what you guys were doing ..slip-sliding-away :imaposer:

But it was great! :ricky:
Took a bit of time to get it clean :patch:

Thanks for the ride everybody. Thanks for organizing everything Crossed-up.  :thumleft:

Here are some pics and a video. I literally just stringed everything together so no nice editing but at least
you'll have something to look at. This was airHEAD's first ride with the Dawgs and his first time out on the
Alternative Route. Really made my day, love the HPN!  :3some:

By the looks of it the attendants at Richwood thought so too.

























Here are some of the guys who came along...

Stev0







Wolf?



Crossed-up



Sack



airHEAD





Stev0 doin some entertaining.







N[]vA with Milddog on tow.





airHEAD with his new HPN.  :love7:

Patience my dear, YouTube doesn't have a 1200cc under the tank...
More like a 650cc, KLR it might be, so it will be slow but you'll definitely get there.

AirHEAD.

I see you finally did the final bit of the paint job on the HPN. Now it looks like a HPN.

I just have to say it again. Great job.
