Fishing in the Pienaars River

Fishing in the Pienaars River

Post by KnopKop on 29th July 2008, 19:36

A week-end or so a go, a few of the club members went riding with the small bikes at the Riverside Mixer.

It was a very enjoyable ride and it even included a bit of fishing.

Guess what we cought ?? - a KTM950 Super Enduro !!!!

Pieter and Colin "stuck in a rut"



Colin and Andre giving a helping hand



Nico on the KTM950 Super Enduro making it look easy



OOPS !!!!

I must say that this swimming exercise by the KTM had absolutely nothing to do with the bike. It was more a case of an "over-excited" rider Laughing Laughing

Except the X challenge (The HP-2 is marginal because of the cylinders) no other BMW would actually be able to ride that specific section.
You need a very light bike with lots of ground clearance.

Nico just had a but too much speed over a tree on a serious off-camber section.

I can also say that Nico is without doubt the most talented Adventure bike rider in our club. You might ask some Zwartkops A group riders what he did with his 1150 Adventure about 3 years ago Twisted Evil

Pieter - it seems you are making a habit of swimming with bikes in the Pienaarsrivier - maybe Admin must retrieve the old post on the old website. LeRoy jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor

Thankfully it was not Pieter that swam this time !!!

Poor old Nico was not impressed after about 10 guys had to try and pull him and his bike out of the river !!

lol! Laughing

Quite true - but rather remember the life jackets next time. Personally speaking looking at the terrain you were riding on there - To each his own. Tried off roading when i was younger - now thoroughly enjoy the LT and Tarmac. Regards.

Good fun for the muddy buddies... bounce
But I tend to agree that this kind of riding justifies the acquisition of a light and gutsy machine...that's easy to clean! Wink
