Nice vid Michiel. Showed it to my wife and her first question was "Did 2SD walk all the way?".

My response, "2SD is like Chuck Norris, he walked all the way and he was still ahead of everybody" ;D

What a great ride.

Mr Big, the more I see that Honda the more I want one...and Christmas is just around the corner so to speak.
Don't sweat the small stuff.

It's not the Honda, it's MrBig, some sections he's got that little bike under the arm.

I do not agree. Bigger bikes has much more of a presence. A charm. They demand respect. There is a certain level
of entertainment and excitement to see you ride SACK. Since you are the star of my films it will be in breach of your
contract to go buy a smaller bike.  :deal:

I'm afraid Michiel has a fetish for big bikes SACK.
Like me you'll never rarely feature in his photo's or videos when on a smaller bike.
I'm starting to develop a complex..  :P

But still, try the XR next time. It's a fun little bike regardless its shortcomings.
For one it left less rubber on the train tracks than any of you guys!  >:D

Hi Guys, good to see you again,Tuareg and myself were on the two plastic KTM's that were on the route.If I had know it was you I would have stopped for a chat.
Next time you are going, PM me and I can show you three other loops that are good too,one very technical and the others about the same,but great fun. Sand riding is great practice as well as improving your fitness and skills. We also have an Enduro loop at Gordon's Bay MX track that will also be fun.Let me know and I can always meet up with my DS bike and show you a bit more of the great riding area.

Thanks, sounds like a plan. I'm thinking of joining the Etienne's gathering this Saturday at Strand.
Some MX track. Same one you talk about? Looks pretty flat on the Google image but I'm curious.

They want to head to Macassar after that. Maybe you can show us around then?

Michiel, there are several more single tracks around Mac, all whoopy, and the HPN will suffer! That's why we stuck to the sandmine and one loop to the other mine.

Anytime call me and we can ride,there is one flatter section that the wood cutters use on the North side of where you rode, it runs on the ridge , great views,with only one hectic down hill and then we loop back on the flatter and wider path that runs parallel but lower down.Can be done with DS bikes too.There are routes that only plastics can do and not for inexperienced either.But the good thing about Macassar is there is so many routes anyone can ride and have fun and be totally stuffed at the end of the day/loop. :mwink: :mwink:If you come ride Saturday I will have to bring my plastic as my DS is in for electrical modifications.
