wow some great ride report there! and that is my white F800gs parked at oasis

Hou op shine vang Pote man!!  :imaposer: :pot:

Bliksem Dawie......never mind bike ry....jy kan bleddie mooi foties neem...en nog beter skryf ook!! Wel gedaan ou....moerse nice RR! In die aande wat ek jou gebel het...veral toe jy deur daai snot mos ploeter kon ek partykeer hoor hoe rof dit was....maar jy het deur gedruk en jou droom beleef.

Siende dat jy sulke goeie RR's doen......dink ek jy is die wenner om on FS Bash report ook te doen volgende naweek!  :peepwall: :pot:

Volgende keer (hopelik April) gooi ons saam mielies!!

Nice RR :thumleft:

Respect for wrestling the Dakar through all that mud on your own and not getting daunted or throwing in the towel!

Liked your mud classifications as well!  :biggrin:

Dankie mense!  Ek's bly julle het die report geniet!   
Dis lekker om te hoor!   :thumleft:

Nice RR :thumleft:

Liked your mud classifications as well!  :biggrin:

...luckily I didn't capsize much more cause then the bike would have become so much
heavier with each pick-up! 
There were stages in the mud where I'm sure the bike was as deep as the chain in
the mud and keeping the throttle open all the way didn't do much more than very
high revs and crawling along at walking speed!   :o

There I knew that if I get stuck now it's going to be a BIG problem! 
Luckily I didn't...!  Phew!!!
