    Fun might be bit of an overstatement

    Also, thanks for the beer Apoc!

    Here's a compilation of some of the clips I took yesterday. Watch till the end for the hillbilly action.


    Nice clips!

    Alls well that ends well though!

    Those places where it feels as if one is going to roll over really scares me. XJ Junkie once told me it is worse than it looks but it is scary to go through them. I think I need more training.

    when the clever bits let you down!

    ABS must have been fooled into believing it was stopped.

    Old fashioned trick - cadence braking - take your foot off the brake and let the wheels turn, then reapply GENTLY - still works with ABS...

    seeing the video, I bet mountain boy's eyes were like a rabbit's in the headlights

    I bet there were 2 sets of underpants written off

    In hindsight, what probably stop the vehicle was me aiming for the vineyards rather than the vehicle in front of me. I was convinced the vehicle could not be stopped when at it's peak. Taking my foot off the brake and actually aiming for the vineyards then allowed the Hill Decent Control to fully kick in

    But ja, the shower I took at home was most wonderful with clean underwear after

    Oh wow, didn't realize it was a little out of control there... No wonder no one mentioned it afterwards back in the parking lot... Glad you came out ok in the end. Can imagine Hardus might have needed shower afterwards as well
