Damn nice trip.   :thumleft:

A good mix of everything, looks like Zuurberg, a piece of the R400, Post Retief, Katberg and then Mitchells pass to the Hogs where you visited Madonna's Child.   :peepwall:

Het ook die Oxford pannier sakke uit probeer op die trippie en hulle werk goed op die grond pad, met al die bumps in die pad en als, net so bietjie gemodify om op die pannier racks te sit.


Die Amarok was ons support vehicle het meeste van die manne se tente gevat, en het orals gegaan waar ons gegaan het, Zuurberg pass, Katberg Pass, I'm impressed.


Fino: Bike Mascot.


Post Retief, Waar ons ook vir Richard Bennot (3Farmers and a greek) raak geloop het en sy nuwe bike  :o


Af in die Katberg Pass, party het dit vinnig gevat en ander bietjie stadiger.
