I don't know how many of you hear of the GACSC. It is an event organized by BMW South Africa. Last year I went along for the 1ste time. It is an event for any GS owner. About 400 riders took part. We all went to the Northern Karro in South Africa and we rode some of the most beautifull dirt and offroad in the Karro. Each day consisted of +- 300 km of off road riding. There were 3 courses to choose from ranging from easy to insane. All the courses had special stages in them. A special stage is off the dirt roads into some-ones farm. The special stages ranged from rocky mountin climbs to sandy dry river beds. Each night we returned to the same camping spot. BMW went all out. The food was good and the bar even better. This is me leaving my house on the Tuesday (about 1000km) from the venue. My plan was to ride down in two days. One of the okes I met along the way This is Kimberly se "gat" (hole). It use to be a diamond mine. Now is sits in the middle of town. \ Some interesting facts about the big hole. This is my halfway stop..About 500 km from the Venue (luxton). As we got closer to Luxton we met with lots of BM riders on their way down. The camping site on some guys farm in the Northern Karroo. At the filling station. Only one unleaded pump in a 100 km radius. +-400 bikes had to fill up there twice a day!!! Not fun.. Ready set GO!!! Taking some pictures and having a wee! After one of the special stages. Very tricky uphill with a 250 kg Adventure! One of the many falls for the weekend. (not me) BMW used the event to launch the HP2. We saw a guy riding it around a obsticale course. What a cool bike. Much better suited for the conditions we were riding in. Maybe next year I can have one of those! A brand new 1200 gs gets dumped halfway down the mountain. On the final day...on top of the WORLD. Don't ask how we got those bigass machines up there. Thats me! What a view for a semi-desert! (The ownder of the farm told be they use this lake for waterskiing) Charley Boorman from behind (Ewan's friend from the long way round) He was invited to attend by BMW. He was one of the judges on the obsticale course. One of the dry river beds we had to negatiate. Thought day at the office! On my way home...1000km to go back to Johannesburg. I have some more pics I will upload them later.
