Title: A jersey dress and tights won't cut it here
Post by: DirtHound on November 25, 2012, 02:05:47 pm

So, Jethro (our 5 year old son) has been asking us for quite a while now to have a sleepover at Aunty Melissa's house with Kendra. Micah (our 2 year old son) tagged along, so Shaz and I had the day to ourselves. We decided to go for a ride on the bikes.

A jersey dress and tights (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=110570.0) were not going to be suitable for the longer ride that we planned, so Shaz got out her jacket and jeans. She didn't want to go too far, so I planned a nice route through the sand and bush in Parklands, along the railway line, through the brickworks and quarry and past Zone7. I originally planned to do a bit of a gravel road loop just past Zone7, but it was marked with a big "NO ENTRY" sign, so we turned around and made our way to the West Coast Ostrich farm for a coffee. Their electricity was off, so we had colddrinks and chips instead.

Shaz did an excellent job of managing her bike offroad in the sand for her first real ride. Well done Shaz, I'm very proud of you! We're gonna go places!

Have new respect for dirt riders. My hands and legs are still hurting! You guys sure make it look much easier. 

Was a ball though and glad to know I'm getting a work out at the same time. I did think that a horse would be a much better option over the soft sand  :-P

Was lovely experiencing this with DH.

Haha - I was waiting for someone to comment about those.  ;D

On a seperate note, it seems that we've now both got the same weapons of choice - the XR650R and the CTX200. How are you enjoying the XR?

Hahaha - My thoughts were also something like "what the?..."

I came to 2 conclutions:
1) It's either from another bike, and Shaz stopped there coincidentally;
2) That CTX has a reverse gear that "skriks vir niks"
