Im Pretoria, up from Cape Town not so long ago, Im bikeless at the mo. Waiting for a new 07 wr450f. That looks like fun. I wish I could go. Where can one ride in this area? Do you know of any places?

Hey RSAThump.

Where I am there isn't a lot of challenging stuff very close, but take a 20km ride and it gets better: there is the brick mine/factory next to the R21 on the way to JanSmuts, and a nice patch behind Irene farm villages etc.

If you want to get together for a ride just give me a shout.

Cheers.
