    I had a hard time getting around that corner in the first pic, although the course was a lot wetter when I did it. I eventually had to lower the tyre pressures and disconnect the sway-bar to get around.

    Who took these photos? Whoever did it should be a professional photographer! The angles, lighting etc clearly shows he's got skills. Hope you plan on paying him for a job well done!

    How did the BFG's do?

    I did lots of sliding around on my stock tyres.

    The route is a lot wetter than it looks more like snot, IMHO I think it would be almost impossible to do it with stock tyres (certain inclines and declines were a bit hair raising). If memory serves me correct there has been in excess of 500mm of rainfall in the last month or so, the ground is saturated with springs all over.
    The "mini camel trophy" photo Owen D referred to would be a definite no no for stock tyres.

    Wizerd if you guys do decide to come down for a GTG, there are a few other trails in the area that are not public knowledge - this we can discuss closer to time.

    Wizerd and I did this trip in May this year after 3 or 4 days of continuous rain.
    Try and spot the "Blue" Suzuki in the pics.

    It was one of the first 4x4Community Suzuki Get togethers. It ended up being just Wizerd and myself.

    I am glad to say the trailer is still on its wheels. I have just returned from Sabie after a week in the mountains on non public roads.

    That is what happens when you have a mini trailer with the wheels pump to hard. It lands on its side if you hit a bump.
