You okes are tough man This one time this one time I climbed into the loft and also did not wear a mask between all the pink insulation stuff Loads of cyclists wear masks in London traffic everyday but I reckon if it does not kill ya it will make you strong

Not real dirty, but enough to put a smile on my face.

Went out playing a weekend ago and could not manage to get the bikes as dirty due to the water crossings being so damn deep and washing the mud off everytime

But alas a poor attempt to replicate our previous trip but here is some pics to keep the dirty rolling!

Just received some more pics from our trip this time myself showing how to get your bike dirty the correct way

Step one:
Find desirable puddle of water or mud



Step two
Decide at a late stage you not going into the water and just trying the mud, now this is the important step....go down a slight embankment and give it some throttle



Step three
Try to get out from under the bike as soon as possible, bad form on my part but hey I did not abandon ship



Step four
Get friends to help pick up stricken bike (why make yourself tired )



Step five
Get back on the bike and get them to push while you gently give it some throttle



Step six
Once the bike starts moving give it alot of throttle and see them roosted



Step seven
Smile for the camera and find next puddle to play in



Well folks that is the easy steps to get down and dirty so please go out and practice practise practise



Enjoy!

Thumb I agree

I agree FULLT to that ,South Africa has some of the best off-road sections , right in your backyard . As a pointer , do not know if you are familiar with Baviaanskloof , just outside Loerie .Best off-road for a quick weekend getaway . Everything in that area from campsites to good rocky sections and nice rivercrossings , YEAR round .Next year when I am going back for vacation I will use my friend's KTM ,to go for nice trip .

Trip to see the flowers in Namaqualand, South Africa. This is on "Matjiesfontein"

How to clean a dusty bike after a day on dirt in summer..... note the azure blue skies..... I do miss South African Off road.....

Easy parking on the Flower trip.


En-route to Naude's Neck , almost Lesotho..... A great day at that point.....

A few hours later..... maybe 10-15 drop/falls later.... Pillion never said a word to complain, tough chick.


On the Aprillia Tuareg.... cleaning up my act....


Pre-wash.....

Wicked Good to see all the TWINS

Good to see all the Africa Twins playing . Iam out of action now after havinghad a BAD accident on my KtM 950 . I will be able to ride it in about a month's time .I hope the KTM is half as good and durable as the Africa Twin .

Yeah mate we enjoy getting them out in their natural environment where they belong Since winter is aproaching rapidly guess the playtime in the mud and water is going to be less so hopefully we can get another trip in around November
