Ok so the owners are adding alot of bling features to the forum, but that is not really a need.

RideZA brings nothing to the party. Sorry but it is true.
The site has no substance and relevance to adventure riding.
All I see currently is that it is called an adventure riding site, but I see nothing of the kind within the forum sections.

People will visit to see what it is all about, they wil find nothing and leave.

At it best, it is the flavour of the month
and wont last long.
The South African market is not big enough to support 2 forums of this kind.

Crucify me for giving my honest opinion, but this is just my 2c.
(Us atheist are not afraid of the word crucify )

Ah, the beauty of the internet. Always attracts at least one idiot to the mix. Actually, reminds me of a similarly vacuous twit residing under a bridge in the big smoke.


Thundermerwe's comments are of zero consequence or usefulness, as he posts absolutely nothing of value anyhow.


I havent seen one post of value from this whiny baby.


Aint it great? The ignore feature can be so useful.

Are you trying to convince me that RideZA is at this stage nothing than a chatroom?
The only posts that made sense was duplicated from Wilddogs anyway.

Your just in denial, because you don't like what you see and hear.

You in the cold north?
I have had a few days of it being back home and have decided that is enough! Leaving for Oz on Sunday. Tacked on an extra week for NZ too.

Going for the record to see how many times I can hemisphere shift in short amounts of time and still function.

For the record, I was just trying to do my civic duty.

Of course you must, although some of the ride reports on this site can sometimes be awfully distracting. I like the one's going through Europe etc.

I adore South Africa and love showing her off, but sometimes its really cool to read the reports from Tuscany, the Alps, the ex Balkan states and definitely the Middle East.

Some of the Russian stuff is flipping interesting as well and until I came on to ADV, didn't know that mozzies could get to the size they do in Alaska. If one of those came gunning for me - eeeeeekkkkkk !

I'm stuck today - car broken down, Mark has gone up the Breede and I still have to work and.....I'm bored and miz.
