Title: A first for me.....
Post by: TornadoF5 on September 05, 2010, 06:39:56 pm
Today admittedly was a rather exciting ride as I had my wife (Hellcat on the forum), who for the FIRST time ever went on a proper ride with me and to top it all said she would like to ride some dirt and even named it Elandsriver….
Man I’m proud of her!

Hellcat getting ready for her first ride since I had my bike!

We were off on the tar to Tolbos for brekkie and the obligatory stop at Van Stadens
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06264.jpg)

Hellcat enjoying that first warm cuppa java as her hands were frozen, dunno why it wasn’t that cold….

Then on with helmet to the Elenadsriver turnoff 4.9km from Tolbos
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06266.jpg)

We had a quick stop off at the tower I think Hellcat couldn’t believe she had made it to the top..
Pontificating the beauty we adventures riders seek so fervently

I was impressed to hear that Hellcat can see what all the fuss is about adv biking and may want her own bike!!!

The trusty steed

Once again just such pretty scenery
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06284.jpg)

Stop at the damn wall
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06290.jpg)

I have always tried to understand this controversy.....
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06291.jpg)

Was the house built in the ravine bed and “sunk” over time
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06292.jpg)

Lastly a stop at Out of Africa for a coke
(http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab22/Tornado2908/DSC06295.jpg)

Out of Africa’s trust watchdog who doesn’t bark at bikers, but everything else.

Very nice.
I've also wondered about that house,
Maybe it was the secret Tokkoloshie training camp before the dam was built
BTW the dog does bark at 2 strokes

Hows about buying the lovely lady a set of gloves. Great to see A out there at last, and hope you guys are joining us for Spring run on Sunday coming. There will be a few of us on KTM's!

Hey Rocstompa have the exact problem bru, always so difficult if you don't have family to farm the kid out for some time alone.
Wife not interested in farming kid out to people she doesn't know either can't blame her I guess.
Maybe we can get a WD nursery going!!!

Was that house not buried by sediment coming down during flooding? I have not been there.

Post by: TornadoF5 on September 08, 2010, 12:16:33 pm
My problem exactly.
Time to devise a cunning plan....... Let's see I think time you and I met and got the wives introduced and talking and that way if you need one on one pillion time we can look after your sprog and visa versa!

Hell even if that doesn't work we get to braai!

R & T
just get a bigger top box with vents.
And get good earplugs for you and your wife.

They'll grow up to be all shook up and be famous like Elvis?
