Thanks to SYD & Span!...... Was soos voorig n Moerse Lekka Kuierasie gewees.
terug by die huis met n korrekte hangover 8) :laughing4:

As Jimbo mentioned, Cyclops and I only just got home before the rains came down in our area..... but only after a quick beer at Battlefields Pub & Grill near Estcourt. :pot:

The ol' Transalp's speedo cable snapped somewhere along the way, so I had no idea how fast I was going, or how far... time to do some maintainence I reckon!
@ Welsh, I reckon your and my livers were made in the same factory!..... My liver has rejected any attempts at reconciliation!  :patch: :peepwall: :ricky: :lol8:

Baie baie dankie mense!..... :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

5 Days , 4 days riding with @cocky . 3000km mixed tar and gravel longest day 1000km . It was a great ride even though my butt was broken .

Bash was lekker even though some drunk fuckers insisted on waking us up at 2:30 am to come and drink with them  :imaposer:

Stopped in at @Heimer on the way home

Some pics I took of the ride , the venue with all its amazing sculptures and museum , some wildlife on the farm , some bash attendees including one of the fuckers that woke us up .

Thanks @Sidpitt  , Nice to meet you @CrazyPorra  , @Swazi sean and @Exploratio was very unhappy that I did not bring that knife home with me

Tommy, before I took Friday off, I had a few bids to do (no they are not one pagers), so first one goes in Thursday in Lephalale (we have to hand deliver), first thing today the new boss says can we push that bid, I am not in Wednesday and I am going up there on Thursday so I can drop it off.

So a proper days work and you can imagine how strong I was feeling.  :o

This was one to remember. Very little sleep for the 3 days we were there.

Once again, thank you @Sidpitt for organizing the event.

Thank you to everyone attending and for making it so much fun and giving generously towards a good cause.

Thanks, they are forever like that. Don't do anything without the other.

The camber slows the ginger down. I fixed it twice over the weekend, but it happens as he just drives over everything.  :imaposer:

I remember someone else had a rim crack like that, but not a full failure also on a 660, maybe Grim?  :thumleft:

That's a proper "boer maak n plan".... Well done!

It seems that the 660 Yammie rims are soft?
I recall Roger Doger's rim getting smilies after we both klapped a lurker on one of the freestate bashes... The DID rim on the Transalp was fine.  ::)
