Eastcapescapade 2018 November 9-10-11

Recommended Posts

SO. Over the past week or so there has been a few wondering what this ride is really like. 

Wonder no more. Watch this video by @BLIZZO shot from his Gopro of actual riding. Whole group riding, race packs, rocky river bed riding, inner city pesting, being passed by trucks, leaving the pack and riding alone ahead of everyone. This video of @johnnyfive's EASTCAPESCAPADE has it all.

Is that the GN that can't be complied and registered for road use? Looks like it has the farm kit fitted.

GN50's actually exist btw. 

They're 2T though. Might have to rig up a blue smoke machine to the 125 and it'll pass for one easy.

No, I don't think that's possible.

A friend of mine (who's initials are AG) had an AG100 back in high school. Many many a brush with death was had on that motorcycle.

great bikes. 

surely too large to get away with a 49cc situation though.

I'm lucky enough to have purchased a ct50 recently. neat little bike

how do i choose what bike to bring this year, st90 would be fastest, 140cc cub would be fun but punishing, or CB50 for the challenge of doing it on a 50

Take each one for a mean long distance fang and which ever hurts your ass the least is the one for East Cape.

so since you guys are wanting a support vehicle, why not buy this piaggio ape?

it's a ute and a scoot, all in one. I imagine they're running the same basic engine as a small frame 50cc vespa...

I imagine that would be painfully slow

Its also a trike.

So needs more American flags and tassels. 

I want to come to this.  But you guys seem way to over the top with must do this and if you're bike breaks your a cunt etc.

 

I just wanna get boozed and ride scooters.  Probably not mostly in that order.
