Once throught Avondzon we headed out in the direction of Leeufontein towards Rayton, Fortunately it had rained the night before and the dust was bearable. Even the TW could keep up with the group easily.

As we turned off towards The back of Rayton? Is that a Lost Aussie i see. Uncle Bob and some pics of the Rhino witth it's young. Go Girl who graced us with her prescence was also admiring her scoot. Wouldn't you if you had one of those. That thing sound's like music to my ears. AND what would a WD Pack be if they did not mark TERRITORY?

Just before Cullinan Uncle Bob doing the sweep. At Cullinan we stopped for some fellowship and Lost Aussie seems to have be Lost no more and has officially joined the Pack. Some WD had earlier commitments and had to leave. Great to have met you all.

As the sun was setting after the afternoons ride we headed back home. Should there in future be a demand for this kind of ride i will gladly set it up. If anything could be changed, let me know as i am always open to suggestions. Nice to have got to spent a short time with new WD. THANK'S to Uncle Bob who without his aid as sweeper and Kykdaar who would ride in front at times to allow me to take photo's i would not of managed. And most of all to the GREAT group who kept it together at all times. It made life very easy for us. Thank's

Cool report and pics Blazes. Thanks for organizing yet another very successful ride.

It was a great group of riders and machines that got together for this one, from Uncle Bob's GS1200 with the non-functioning auto sidestand (you will have to ask him) to go-girls lovely sounding Katoom and PGpatrick's little TW 200. 

The enjoyment had by all seems to confirm that there is also a place for slow and scenic drives at times. The last time when we rode Hartbeesfontein at speed, for example, I did not see a single animal. So personally, I enjoyed this trip a whole lot more. Thanks again!

Thanks to Blazes for an exceptional afternoon and it was great to meet all of you.
Maybe it was a good thing it wasn't to technical with all the left and right searching for animals.

Blazes, thanks for another lekker ride!  :)

I enjoyed the fact that it was nice and relaxed - the ride, as well as the people.

From me and the misses, thank you blazes.

As Newbies we enjoyed it very much. The pace and the terrain was just what we needed to get ourselves familiarized with each other (on the bike of course >:D). This was only the third and longest we rode together.

I‚??ll keep an eye open for the next newbie as the learning process never stops, especially with 2 up.

Also had a fantastic time, thanks. Was pretty cool to see the photographer at the side of the road, and then see him going past at mach 2 before repeating the whole exercise.

Now to other trip organiser, please consider the afternoon rides, a 1pm start was perfect and we had a great turnout!

Thank you to Blazes & Uncle Bob for a well organized run on the day.  I thoroughly enjoyed my 1st ride and also meeting eveyone on the turn-out.  I'm hooked and will definately be out there again.

Even I managed to find the starting point  ;D but that evening I had to try and explain to some friends when I returned, where I had been for the day......and had to admit I had no clue !! (Somewhere out the back of Pretoria and near Cullinan was all I could tell them).  So thanks for adding these details to the ride wrap-sheet along with the photo's.
