Well done for finishing the ride, J-dog.  It was good to meet you. 

You deserved a bit of luxury after that epic.

Miskien sal die WC quarry spannetjie voortaan ons Macassar bende se uitnodigings ernstiger oorweeg? :peepwall:
Sprocketbek, ernstiglike mooi fotos daardie, lekker om hier te sit en lees en kyk. Dankie aan Kameelperdkop, Firecoast, Wayneh en al die supporting actors vir hierdie groot pret!!

Take 2!!!

Still lots of pics I would like to post. Pure Orange used my spare DSLR body (because he had broken his) and ALL the subsequent pics were taken by him. I just have the shit job to choose, edit & post them.

But firstly I wish to thank my driver & navigator for the great job he did: Abel, it is greatly appreciated.
It allowed me to concentrate on what I was there for.

Some pics are not so sharp but I'll be giving some uncalled for tips as we progress.   >:D

I reckon that sandy start was quite daunting on a "nugter maag".

Now for a quick field lesson in this type of photography:
1) Set your focus to the centre spot. Normally one should keep the focus on the subject's eyes but it's impossible to do with bikes. Go for the front of the bike or the rider's chest....keep that red dot nailed there.
2) Identify a good (& safe) vantage point. Trim or trample a few weeds if need be.
3) If you're doing a close-up of an elephant or rhino, rather over-expose. In Atlantis sand, rather under-expose.

I'm incuding this dodgy pic of Kamanya simply because I cannot believe how he takes whoops on a 950:

Great photo's Sprocketbek, and a big thumbs up for everyone that entered Amageza!

My woorde vanoggend aan my vrou:

"nee oo hel nou is ek al weer dik soos ek was".

Nadat ek die kiekie gesien het  :imaposer:. Ek is nie weer helemal daar nie, maar ek is nie ver agter nie. Ek sal moet begin hol, trap en rol sodat ek weer die vinnigste bles ou in die Kaap kan wees.

Tenminste is vet mense happy mense.
