I fully agree with DirtyHarry, this should be a one man and his machine mission. Otherwise you'll see RR's of Stens and GS' that has been pushed and pulled [behind the scenes], to do this road. Proper D/S, rider on his own.
I do not mind going totally out of my comfort zone, in fact I do not have a comfort zone :mwink:, so for me no planning, just a few of John West's flat packets of tuna, and there you go. Life is good. Ek skrik mos nie vir n klip nie. :xxbah:


So dude why don't you swim from Simon's Town to Seal Island? That should also be out of your comfort zone. Oh and don't open the tuna.
The older I get, the faster I was.

Yes. Only the XT & KTM.

Lets just hope and pray that all goes well with them and that they make it back safely. :thumleft:

Look, if someone can do it, it will be those two. I consider them as very very valuable riding friends
and just don't want harm to come to them. I'm just worried. Just worried.

So Seeduiwel also took some video and posted it to me for editing. I was impressed by the effort he went through
to get the footage up here given it's not much. I can't comment much apart from saying his commentary makes
up for any other flaws.  :D

I just spliced all of the three clips he took for the sake of the atmosphere.

Ok who wants to go try this out between 1 July 2012 and 22 July 2012? It all looks rideable to me.

Is the XT600 and KTM 690 that is going up by any chance oom 2SD and oom GJ?

If that 690 with the pilot doesn't get up there then I doubt anyone will, he's beyond a talented bike rider  :thumleft:
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

Sounds like a good plan - my time will be seriously limited so I will have to cheat and tow up to Springbok one night and meet you there with my 450 Husky - maybe Heddles will join us on his new WR450

It can only be 2SD and GJ - I'm sure they will be OK - if not it just means that we will have to go rescue them and move our plans forward a bit ...

Let's wait and see

This thread should be renamed  "The road to the road to hell.. and back."
It seems 2SD will report on the actual "road to the hell", and hopefully back...

Great rr though.
