The first day when you get a bunch of people together who do not quite know each other it is always a little less free and easy as people try and get to know each other. Only after a bit do people start loosening up and being more relaxed. Usually after the first night party! In this case one or two people in the crowd pretty much knew all the others so it was easier for them to converse and be themselves, which got things going much quicker.
We were also trying to suss each others riding ability out, each thinking the rest were a bunch of pro's! As it turns out we had a really good mix of riding skills from one chap who was relatively new, but even then had been riding quad bikes and his own bike for a year or so. Right through to one of the chaps who had in the past planned to do the Dakar rally. In general through everyone knew how to ride and we could get on with it and trust each other to do the right thing.
We also had a great mix of bikes, KTM's 990 and 950's, Honda Africa Twin 750, Triumph Tiger 800, BMW 1200 and 800s. So interesting to see how each of the bikes performed and watch their fule consumption, comfort, etc.
