Title: WP OUTRIDERS- Alternative special...
Post by: Pistonpete on October 12, 2008, 06:28:31 pm
The long juicy grass stood tall and fat. The sun shone gently and sparkled upon the morning dew. Butterflys flapped their gossamer wings and lighted on the fresh blooming flowers anticipating their morning food. Birds eagerly competed for pollen & darted overhead catching their small prey untill......33 Wilddogs came BLASTING through!
 :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

XT660R, Wayne & Paremed...a big thank you from all of us :wav: The route was full of little surprises which ultimately resulted in a few incidents :)
Durtseeker aka threetreeseeker aka the hedge....gave his spanking matt black 990 KTM a christening of note...& managed to keep a smile up while nursing a very swollen hand....feedback there bro! :deal:
The_Wes had KTM on call to sort out his flat which ultimately resulted in him leaving his sweeping job early :patch: ;D
The Honda 500 when not steaming :biggrin: would not start...pics pls guys?
Otherwise it was just a few offs, a couple bruises, scrapes & bumps (one being on my knee!)
It was an awesome ride with great comraderie & the everpresent willingness to help each other......suddenly i feel VERY tired ::)

thanks Andy and Pete and everyone.  :thumleft:

That's right, I got a flat. The way I found out was the bike suddenly became uncontrollable and flung me violently to the ground - here I sit at home nursing a swollen pinky finger and a moerofa sore back (point of impact was my lower back, off to the side, sort of hips / kidney area. eina)

Thanks to camelman and wayneh for the help with the flat, as well as steveo for holding the bike, sprocketbek for the tube, (can't remember your name) for the pump, and mountainboy for just standing around and looking pretty. o and thanks to Lito and Mark for the running commentary

Then after we change the tube, eish, the tire, something is not right, so I run flat again. Thanks to generous donation of airbombs from Go Girl, Mark and (again, the name) 1150GS rider, I headed home, stopping often to inflate. Bought some tire weld in Malmesbury as well, but that only held so far.

Thanks again to everyone, I owe you all bigtime  :thumleft:

Super bummed that I missed the rest of the ride though, can't tell you guys how disappointed I am  :xxbah: and of course, injuries ain't lekker either. but hey, that's life i suppose!

until next time  :ricky:

Thanks to all that came on the ride , it was great meeting new WD.

Sorry you hurt your hand Durtseeker , and for the record , Durtseeker took a tree out the ground when he dropped his 990 and managed to walk away with what looked like a broken bone in his left hand.

Too many thrills and spills  to mension.

I only got home at 17h45 , so the pics will follow tomorrow.

Thanks Paramed for the back up vehicle.
We didnt realise that you were actually going to follow us down the track , through all the water crossings and up the mountain.
And Mr.Big , get a happy button or bring the Tiger next time. You must have been exhausted trying to kick that bike all the time man !

This is the reason why I bought an Enduro bike :D

Thanks to all that gave me pointers along the way, and a special thanks to Debs, Marc and Wes for all the personal training ;) and anyone I missed :)

Also please note the new profile name, which I believe I was dubbed after I left, "White Boots"!

Thanks again guys hope to see you all again soon ;)

Hey Wes, I believe the run-flat tyres are only coming out with the '09 spec BMW's.  >:D >:D >:D

Awesome ride, thanks to all who organized (XT660R, Wayneh,  etc.....Paramed for backup, that is so reassuring). I had a lovely ride. Some afkak. And lots of laughs...... good spirit.

Just some initial pics:
1) The first significant watercrossing. I'm not sure I want to put names to some of the pictures I took.
2) Wes. Need we say more? Fixed a flat whilst hardly getting his hands dirty.
3) TEAMWORK: Wes in the supervisory role, Camelman and Wayneh doing the work, Mountainboy swatting insects and being cheerleader. The rest looking on so they can criticize later.

Andy, Wayneh thanks for a super day of riding. The track up Piketberg Mountain was the best, just technical enough to keep you on your toes but not hard enough to scare you.

Thanks to everyone for the great sprite that was shown during the day, made the day a total success. MrBig, she needs a service or a happy button. Hows your leg today. :biggrin:
Parramed I wonder if we will ever see you on a bike again, looked like you had as much fun as we did. Thanks for the back up and assistance offer when required.  :thumleft:

No it's time to wash wash the bike for the next one.

Once again thanks to all for a great day.  :thumleft:

Good morning you all, trust everybody got a good rest. I was rather tired but it was good.
Thanks again for all who rode, it was a pleasure to have such company.

My friend on his Dakar unfortunately had to leave us early but I trust he will be on the very next ride.
On our way back Stevh0 and I swapped bikes because his arse couldn't take the punishment anymore.
Was fun riding the blue machine but I gladly took my babe back after about 50km's

Here is the link to the video I made, I kept it prompt but it's still a little longer than I intended. The group was just so big and the fun never stopped!

First all the thank you‚??s  :thumleft:
To the explorers, XT660 and Wayneh, a big thumbs up guys and thanks for sharing the route with us. Also thanks to PistonPete for being the instigator and then Paramed for the backup vehicle and support!

Thanks to the sweeping team, Mark Hardy, Camelman and The-wes. If I left anyone out here, my apologies, because I am sure I have seen a few other ‚??old timers‚?Ě sticking around at the water crossings to help people through. Or maybe they are just sadistic. :)

Rassie GS 800 plus two soon to be dogs, helped me ‚??prepare‚?Ě the night before and we only went up to Moorreesburg. If we had skipped the beers at the local pub, we would probably have completed the journey, but the beers took us on a different route back to Cape Town. I blame XT660. Well, I guess I will just blame him for everything! :)

I will upload a video tonight ‚?? a few pics:

First stop Occuldale:

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3159/2937852944_e3556c85ba_o.jpg)

The_wes, I just needed to come clean here. Here is the proof that you did actually do something!
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3147/2937853302_2f868e6dd6_o.jpg)

I am sure that this discussion was about a few thrills and spills :P

Protection against the ever assaulting miggies
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3224/2937001927_0a356bbde3_o.jpg)

One very dirty GS 800. Mud = snot ‚?? knobblies + lots of power
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3152/2937002107_daa0b34300_o.jpg)

I must admit, for someone that enjoys sliding around at a bit higher speed, this was an awesome experience and f@rking hard work!

No pics at all Snafu - lekker to meet you in da flesh


Thanks Andy660, you truly are a mother hen who wants all her chickies home safe - attendant with the sometimes brooding personality too  >:D :deal:


We had a great ride too - the closest moment of the day having the front tyre wash over that bloody irrigation black pipe - if it wasnt for speed saving our bacon, I know that Amanda and I would have cartwheeled nicely  :mwink:


Thanks to the crowd for the laughs - particularly at the water holes, and then also at that last bump which saw many a bike see its paw paw. It started with Sprocketbek, and ended with GogoGirl?

Too funny - Andy youre a leg' my man for organising this multi brand bike day - a greater collection of DSport bikes I dont think you could get on an informal ride. Paramed and Barry - you okes are legend for coming in the Mahinnn Mahinnn Mahinnnnnnnndraaaaaaaaaa  :biggrin: - your services were needed! And also to Wayne, for leading us ably up the trail. Thanks also for giving us permission to go ahead and get some fuel and shade which caused a certain mother hen to have her ruffles fleathered  >:D


We ended with 2x TW's, Andy on his Yammie 660 and the balance were Katoomers. Bittereinders, its a pity we didnt get a picture of that last hole right through the earth ending in China which could have resulted in serious injury... lucky for GGGirl huh  :o


We klapped the N7 at 165 all the way home (we caught and passed that VRod sitting at his 135 20clicks outside Malmesbury  :D), the forken pollen induced hayfever has my eyes at half mast swollen this morning.  Amazing ride! - thanks to all who pushed through.


 :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: - Imagine if Wes and Shamiel had children together - who would be the man/woman? Dead mince gives you stretch Wes?

Unfortunately no pics from me either - was too busy 'doing something else'   :P

Thanks to the organisers - especially Andy and the backup crew Brian and Barry.
Then a BIGGGG thanks to all who gave a helping hand every now and then when the red biatch struggled to get going. :'(
Especially the man himself Mr Camelman - shot brother I owe you one.

I had great fun out there - awesome route - would love to do it again..

That little ditch caught me out for sure. It had a diameter that was close to 21" and I was not sure there would be enough traction to lift the front wheel over.....so I approached with too much caution and then stalled the bike just when it straddled the ditch. My legs didn't want to grow fast enough.

And then GoGirl went and did something similar! Pic doesn't do justice to the ditch.

Working on the other pics, patience please.

Stevho....you're a big lad...did you help pick up my bike with one hand mate? :o The swelling in my knee is going down nicely ::)

This was sure a test of endurance in terms of concentration & focus, mechanical issues, skills levels, fitness & plain old...hell i'm tired already! Maybe to to much of the same thing for some....for others not enough. A great leveler for all of us in many ways & it was great to ride with all of you :thumleft:

The question was asked wether it is appropriate to post pics of someone having a spill. I say certainly. You can learn from somebody else's mistake without you having to make that mistake yourself. I will demonstrate that statement later.

Some of the noobs could have avoided problems at the watercrossing if they watched the lines previous guys took. (But thanks for the entertainment provided).

And GO GIRL, allow me to correct the indiscreet picture I posted (not that you complained!):

As pistonpete so vividly described, Spring has sprung and it's a lovely day in the Swartland. Paramed's buddy Mike takes his missus for a leisurely Sunday morning cruise:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2514B.jpg)

Mmmm......What have we here? The front wheel strays to the middelmannetjie and he moves his body trying to correct:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2516B.jpg)

He starts to paddle. Initially it seems OK:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2518B.jpg)

But the front wheel persistantly heads for the middle:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2521B.jpg)

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2523B.jpg)

The front wheel steers over but the rear not:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2524B.jpg)

The pillion gets restless and prepares to bail:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2525B.jpg)

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2526B.jpg)

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%202/IMG_2528B.jpg)

After prompting from Lito he hits the kill switch. If the water was deeper it could have sucked water in already. Admittedly, not an easy thing to remember as you go down:

Okay, i made it home!
Have to thank everybody who helped and gave advice after my fall...  :thumleft:

The only foto's i've got is that of my hand that show  that it is broken  :eek7:
So -  i'm in in a cast and off the bike for 4 weeks.   :(  :'(
Dont know the damage to the bike yet, but will keep you up to date on that one.


Methinks we should pop around to yer pub mate & buy a few drinks to help pay for that hand! lol

Thanks PP

By now an audience has gathered on the approach to the watercrossing.

So why would anybody choose the forum name Crossed-up?

The answer is........ you don't choose it, you earn it.

Surely a TW200 must be the ideal bike under the circumstances?

Lets see:

lol little private joke I have had going with myself (yes I have lost my mind) I call the TW the fury cause I just cant resist..... every time I am in traffic at a light I sit and rev next to guys on super bikes or nice cars, the tw is the fury  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Have the pics all lined up but Photobucket gave me major kark yesterday, bombimg out when every 2nd pic was uploading. I see someone else also had hassles. Took me 20 min per picture. I'm on nightshift and hardly had sleep yesterday due to sukkeling.

Will try now again. Otherwise I'll just gooi 3 at a time.

OK I need some help with who this was. Also correct me if I get subsequent names wrong.

This rider gets first prize for his relentless attack of the middelmannetjie. A brave fight indeed.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/nortjen/Piketberg%204/IMG_2559B.jpg)

By now you should have seen a pattern forming. ALL the riders that had problems had not stayed in the rut. Trucks and bakkies had probably been stuck there before causing deep ruts to form despite there being no significant middelmannetjie at the access or exit. The water is muddy so you cannot see it. So visualise where you believe the tracks to be. Choose one and STICK TO IT. The water will be deeper but you won't slip and slide. Enter carefully with just enough momentum (unless your name is N[]vA) and you can give gas and exit with a flourish if you wish.

Seasoned riders (or formally trained ones) can differ from me if they like but that's my  take on it. I also do it that way through rocky crossings like Baviaans and have not encountered any problems.

Yes, XT660R, it was a popular ride even before it started. Much anticipation and the ride certainly did not disappoint.

Here are the final pics from me, apologies for the delay.

Fr1day also managed to cross the niddelmannetjie twice:
