Only the two. :mrgreen: But countless "almosts" :eek:

Evil bastids! My first real dirt riding trip and they take me through the muddy canals. With friends like these, who needs enemies? :twisted: :lol:

It still rates as my best DS riding experience and always will be up there. :razz:

Sorry if this comes across as a brand bash.
Looking at Journeymans post reminded me of this thing I made from those pics.

After we did the other mountain, upon our return route, my son (Ulitjie's son)said that we should wait for him as he wants to take some pics.  We waited, and Mark set off first!  From about 600m away, we could see what has just happened! ::) ::)

With a cloud of dust, and legs and arms and helmet swapping positions amonst the fynbos, Mark had obviously had an off!

Ulitjie's son took the piccies, in true WD fashion!














Luckily nothing but Mark's ego was hurt.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Kortpad van Colenso na Winterton. Die bord sê " Heavy vehicles should not use this road when wet" Hulle het niks gesê van bikes nie..................  ??? Two-up met daardie aaklige sak wat doer vêr agter die agterwiel hang, is 'n wenresep vir disaster.  :-[ Ma vloek my nou-nog as ek daarvan praat.  ;D

My laaities have just learnt to ride their scooters and were playing outside on them just now. I went to go snap a few pics when this happened.

Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

This is one of the most fun threads ever! I've had my KLR only a few months and I've gone for a little rest while riding three times, the latest yesterday. No photies yet, so far I've hidden them all from the camera!
Toothpick - those are some awesome photies from a lady DS rider - Respeckt for posting them.

Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

In the spirit of the Hardy Man's stunt.

This was me in Winterton during the Harescramble.
This rocky hill was easy as I generally like the rocks. Some guy stopped in front of me, ruined my momentum and I ended up hitting a rock and stopping dead.

Tried to put my foot down, but it was going down!


I jumped...


So who saw me do that stupid dismount?
Oh only Mr K28 and the photographer of course!
