    Just forced 4 non OS-ers/seldom users of OS who were keen to sign up to actually do it. Weow. The excitement grows.

    +1. The event has an organiser. They'll sort out the event - thats what they're for. Riders only need sort out their bikes and arrive. Literally nothing else. Not toilets, nor paper, nor air freshener. Let the dude who came up with the ride do his things and stuff.

    Everyone just worry about your bikes. Support vehicles and stuff will be there. It’ll all be sorted. Aim to be self sufficient. This is a weekend ride with the boys, not Paris to Dakar. Anyone got a food caravan to follow the group? Also if someone owns a helicopter to follow and spot from the air that’d be great /sarcasm. Remember AA+ exists if you’re that worried and will pick you up anywhere in the country and take you anywhere you need to go.

    On it! Looking at 2. The OG ute with box trailer and also messaged @Thphantum as he's keen as beans. His boss is insisting he goes. Also We need more room for bikes than people. Half these bikes have room for 2 people. So 2 up till your bike is fixed is the way to go IF the unforseen happens. Makes for awesome filming opportunities too. Plus who doesn't enjoy a little nuts to butts? Will update later re: Support Vehicles. Hows those panniers @Vintage Grumble

    A dude on my Facebook group found a bunch of old stock windscreens for Honda c90’s. FOAMERS picked up 5. Because where else can you get Japanese made small bike windscreens for next to nothing $$$-wise. Keen as to rock one for Eastcape!

    For people worrying, if anyone is. Remember not to worry if you can’t change it. Support car? It’ll be there. Don’t worry. Roads? They'll be there, don’t worry. We only had 2 months notice for the last Eastcape. Anyone second guessing themselves; I highly recommend reading the 2017 Eastcape thread from start to finish. Might take an hour or so; but I did it the other night and it answered every question I had.

    Support car is last. Aka: follows the whole pack. Otherwise if someone cooks their bike etc; it won’t be much use if it’s in front. Does your bike work? Have you ridden it a few hundred km before east cape? Answer yes to both? Then you have nothing to worry about nothing except your beer choice.

    Support car is last. You're good. Everyone, remember the second most important thing before beer is to make sure you do a giant skid before Eastcape, video it and show us.

    @MaxPower has a covered box trailer and ute as per a few pages back I believe. 4-5 seats in the ute; tray can take at least 15-16 people - not sure how many bikes/bottles of beer the trailer fits.

    Let’s just not break down and then fill the trailer with ice and beers. Sorted. Edit: inb4 u crashed last year huhuhu.

    Won't really know till a couple weeks before probably. Providing people actually get a decent 100km or so at least on their bikes beforehand to niggle out the wiggly bits (especially the 2T crew) then it should be okay with one. What date are you back from the states?
