Thank you all for my most enjoyable EC Bash. One of my highlights was the blast I had with Humfree in his sidecar.  :biggrin:

Jup, thanks again for a fantastic bash!

Somehow it just does not feel normal to sit down and eat with proper plates, knifes, forks and coffee mugs at a bash. You spoiled us rotten :)

Thank you for all the effort that you and your team put into making this a success!!

Thanx Djoep, alls loop reg, altyd reg, Doornkloof.

Veilig tuis na 'n ultra tjild gesluipery op die agterpaadjies.
My foon se kamera weier om saam te werk so ek het ziltch voudies maar baie goeie herhinderinge van 'n welverdiende break en sielsverreikende gatskuur sessie saam 'n bedeesde dog inspirerende span vriende, oud en nuut.
Dink nie ek het al ooit heen en weer die Kamanassie, Oude Muragie of die Kruisfontein/Groenfontein paaie so stadig gery nie.
Baie, vars prentjies in die bank.
Oppad bash toe Gemsbokke en 'n Witkruis arend gesien.
Oppad trug Eland, Waterbokke, baie skilpaaie gesien en ook skielik moes briek vir 'n Rooikat wat voor my in die pad kom staan het.
Dankie mens en dier, vriende en bier, ek's veilig hier, dit was 'n plesier. :thumleft:

Thank you Jupiter, it was a great weekend. My most magical moment was riding back to Jochimskraal late on Saturday night, and after closing the farm gate, realising a Kudu Bull and four Kudu females were standing just ahead of me, it must have been the bike's headlight that was masking me. I stood and watched for ages. It was the cherry on top of a lekker Bash.  :thumleft:

Thanks vir julle ouens wat al die pad gery het en vir daai rit en die sidecar, wat my weggeblaas het. Bliksem, as iemand my vertel het, selfs na ek nou al jou video gekyk het, dat mens 'n sidecar so kan ry sou ek dit nie geglo het nie  :eek7:

Highlight for me was the ride in, in the dark it was the most amazing feeling. There is something special about that ride I had never experienced before. I would recommend it if anyone ever got the chance (and not in a big group). Jup thanks for the bash and all that you do behind the scenes. To Chris and his helpers well done as good as ever.

Some time ago my long suffering friend, Innis (Bullitt), bought my XT600, and would do his first gravel ride the weekend to the bash and back. He did very well.

1. Totally over excited he arrives at my place while the dassies are still sleeping.

2. First smoke break at the turn-off to Hankey. It promised to be a beautiful day and it was.

3. We meet up with Ian and his gang at the East gate. They have a different travelling style, and eventually only arrived at Doornkloof just before dark  :eek7:

4. The compulsary pic at the top of Combrinkdpass

Post by: Knucklhead on May 12, 2014, 11:10:13 am
So its my turn now  :biggrin:

jason (knucklhead jr) and myself decided at around 19:00 on Friday evening that we needed a break and decided to pack our scoots, have a short sleep and leave at 04:00 in the morning from Uitenhage. As it was his first time out on a long drive we decided to take it easy and ride up to Willowmore via Steylerville to enter the baviaans from the north.

It was damn cold, measuring aroung 4.5deg at some times and came very close to a Kudu , that fortunately chose the fence direction than my direction. Anyway arrived around 10:30 ish, frozen solid to a lekker brekkie (especially kept  :biggrin:)

We kuierd through the day, me havin a power nap to rest my bones. After the prizegiving and chow, we kuierd a little and it was off to bed. We leaft again at 05:30ish to head home, afterall it was mothersday so we had deadlines  :deal:

anyway here my pics..

1. The fact that we are bikers does not mean we are uncivilized. Coffee at Smitskraal, after safely negotiating the crossing... well sort off, for the first time in many crossings, I put a foot down and got it wet.  :biggrin:

2. A very happy camper arrives safely at Doornkloof and never stopped smiling the rest of the weekend  :thumleft:

For some reason I don't take many pics at the bash. Well, I do have a few things on my mind when there. My last pics... Camelman doing a chat on the Amageza and jorust with her Round Africa talk.

And that was it... an incident free bash with the worst the medics had to do was dispense some ENO'S  :imaposer: That's the way we like it and thanks again to you all for making it so.

See you next year, same time, same place  :thumleft:

Thanx Djoep, alls loop reg, altyd reg, Doornkloof.

Veilig tuis na 'n ultra tjild gesluipery op die agterpaadjies.
My foon se kamera weier om saam te werk so ek het ziltch voudies maar baie goeie herhinderinge van 'n welverdiende break en sielsverreikende gatskuur sessie saam 'n bedeesde dog inspirerende span vriende, oud en nuut.
Dink nie ek het al ooit heen en weer die Kamanassie, Oude Muragie of die Kruisfontein/Groenfontein paaie so stadig gery nie.
Baie, vars prentjies in die bank.
Oppad bash toe Gemsbokke en 'n Witkruis arend gesien.
Oppad trug Eland, Waterbokke, baie skilpaaie gesien en ook skielik moes briek vir 'n Rooikat wat voor my in die pad kom staan het.
Dankie mens en dier, vriende en bier, ek's veilig hier, dit was 'n plesier. :thumleft:

Het daai skilpad geindicate toe hy jou verby steek??   :spitcoffee:

Lekker okes , it was pretty good to wake up sober on both days . Made this year a quieter bash for myself and felt so much better , but yet had that niggling you let the drinking team down feeling .
Also the first time for Dirt Junkie and myself to sleep in the " pensioners corner " with Veldbrand and Footpeg se pa , We even had to pitch their tents . The old farts !

Next time for sure  :thumleft:

A massive thank you to Jup and everyone who worked so hard to make this one of the best bashes         :thumleft:  :thumleft:


Oom Pad, Lister, Jackmeister, Sheldon and I only left George at 2H00 on Friday and after a few stops in the kloof arrived at 6.

Friday night was cold ! Jup, thanks for the newspaper to put under my mattress, but I was still cold and considered getting up and reading it by the fire instead  ::)

On Sunday morning we were the last to leave camp.   I had packed up, loaded my bike and was sitting chilling with a coffee watching the rest of the group get there stuff together.   Finally, as they put helmets on and started engines...... I realised my bike keys were missing  :o  :o
     
After unloading everything and emptying all my bags   :dousing:    I found them wrapped inside my tent   :eek7:      Loaded up for the second time while the group chirped useful info such as safe places to store bike keys etc. etc   :)       
   

It was great seeing old friends and making a few new ones.  Where do I put my name down for next year !   :ricky:

Baie lekker gebash en klomp nuwe honne ontmoet.  Dis my eerste rit na die Baviaans toe en dis bitter baie mooi.  Ek is seker daar is plekke in die kloof waar g'n mens se voete nog was nie.

Paar fodies ...

Eerste volgooi op Willowmore.  Teen die tyd lekker nat gereën.  Maar die wind  :eek7:  amper van ons fietse afgewaai.  Ek het lekker saam jou gekuier en gery Woody  :thumleft:

(http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/a592/Dorsland/EC%20Bash%202014/P6090055_zpsd004ac71.jpg)



Die spyseniers het baie hard agter die vure gewerk.  Baie dankie julle ouens, dis dikwels ondankbare werk maar die kos was lekker, volop en die koffiewater altyd an't kook  :thumleft:  Weet net dat dit opreg waardeer word

Ek het my naam lekker velskoen gemaak met die skills challenge, verder geen beserings of skade nie. Maar daar is party manne en maninne wat darem kan.  Volgende jaar sleep ek die Bushlandertjie saam dan bars julle  ;D

En toe Sondag moet die pad huistoe aangepak word  :(  Die landskappe is nog steeds bekoorlik, ek ry stadig,  die KTM manne roost my maar ek stop en ry, neem fotos, ry verder.  En dis vrekken koud!!  Het bo buite die kloof gestop om my thermals aan te trek.  Geen fodies nie, jammer  :imaposer:

Lekker okes , it was pretty good to wake up sober on both days . Made this year a quieter bash for myself and felt so much better , but yet had that niggling you let the drinking team down feeling .
Also the first time for Dirt Junkie and myself to sleep in the " pensioners corner " with Veldbrand and Footpeg se pa , We even had to pitch their tents . The old farts !

Next time for sure  :thumleft:

Let me explain then for all those that are so concerned that they never see me smile  :biggrin: The guy on the right is Watty. I don't recall ever seeing him smile but inside he had a heart of gold and one was poorer for not knowing him. He was a serious man and my mentor as a WD, and guide to organising bashes. It is serious business  :deal: So I thought that's how it is, but I'll try harder from now on  :3some:

To my shame I forgot the dedication to him on Saturday evening, but I'm sure he smiles on us now.  :thumleft:

I knew Kobus fairly well , was a good client of mine . He also used to use our shop exterior lights at night to do sea worthy inspections on boats for the local angling clubs.
Wonderful guy who had the patience of Moses .

I saw Jup smile on Saturday night when the boys decided to rev their bikes while Jo was doing her speech , i think secretly he is  a reprobate like the rest of us . Dont worry Jup we understand you !! Boys will be Boys - some have to present themselves better for the greater good .  :thumleft:

So I ended up riding out Solo and had an absolute blast ... my route was the Cockscomb road Steytlerville, Willowmore and in "the long way round" for some much needed "Helmet time".  :ricky:

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-20h43m13s58.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-20h43m13s58.png.html)

The Cockscomb road was a little damp after a bit of rain ...  but most enjoyable ... no dust!!  ;)

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-20h57m50s53.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-20h57m50s53.png.html)

After a stop at the Royal Hotel for a lite breakfast  and moving on to Willowmore for petrol .... GS Versus truck ... thank goodness the driver shared the road ..... :patch:

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h11m56s192.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h11m56s192.png.html)

Looks like I'll be riding into some rain ........ my rain suit is at the bottom of the top-box  :xxbah:

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h22m22s144.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h22m22s144.png.html)

A quick "Bum Break" as I entered the "Baviaanskloof Sleutel"

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h33m41s14.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h33m41s14.png.html)

And then a few drops of rain came down .... but nothing to get excited about .....  ;)

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h45m30s205.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-21h45m30s205.png.html)

There appeared to be very little water in the Kloof, must admit I was expecting a little more than this!! .....  :-\

(http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww315/Beagle_BMW/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-22h01m30s81.png) (http://s731.photobucket.com/user/Beagle_BMW/media/EC%20Bash%202014/vlcsnap-2014-05-12-22h01m30s81.png.html)

By Joubertina. 10km voor die Dorp, van oos af, draai jy regs by die plaas opkoms, so 62km dan kom jy uit net ander kant Joubertina, daar in die dip by Die Kraaltjie.

Dis eintlik die Agter Kouga, maar ek sien een of ander slim ou het 'n bordjie opgesit wat sê "Onder Kouga"

For the Saturday outride I went up the "rear entry" to the tower. The Eastern Cape guys reckon this is the ladies' side, so this route I must now do from Steytlerville into
the Baviaans.
It took me an hour, 16kms in total. This includes the footpath to the tower.

And there is a 2014 EC bash dogtag hanging under the solar panels, with DW scratched on the back with a geniune indigenous stone tool.

As ek reg onthou is daar nou al 8 ouens wat die Rear Entry bash toe gery het. Ek is seker jy sal 'n paar Greyhounds kry wat met jou sal saamry.

Martina - those spots look nice BUT very vulnerable there!?

Big Dom,

I also thought so at first, but after checking out boere and parratjies' lights (as well as doing some constructive internet surfing at work  :peepwall: ), i feel and believe they should be good there  :biggrin:

If they do get damaged there, you will be the first to know  :thumleft:

In his defense he has on occasion ridden behind the SE. Nothing is safe in that zone. Ride with the greyhounds and we will break them for you.  8)

I was thinking more about 'tip overs' ... and have witnessed an SE with a Throttle at the helm capsize a few times ... doubt them spots would have survived but then as TJ says it does depend on the type of riding one does.  :ricky: 
PS I also have good experience capsizing in the rough seas so like my stuff battened down well. :biggrin:

Yip we also mark our territory, piss in streams, throw stones at slow riders and take newbies onto tough rides but opposite to our tight pack mentality we are generally a friendly bunch that ride from sunrise to (at times) well into the night.  :ricky:  :biggrin:
