Thurday: Laai bikes ry 05:00 uit Toolbag met bakkies tot ion Vredendal. Laai af vertek 08:00 na Pofadder via Kliprand.
Slaap by Klein pella. Kuier saam met die Noor-Kaapers en namaqualanders.

Vrydag doen die namaqua 4x4 tot by die bash  :thumleft:  :thumleft:  :thumleft:  :thumleft: bitter lekker gewees

Saterdag: Rus

Sondag: ry teer tot Springbok  :lamer:  :lamer:  :lamer:  :lamer:

Wildeperdehoekpas  :thumleft: Hondeklipbaai  :thumleft: Sand  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

En toe 9km vanaf Groenrivier besluit Lest om sy Dr sleg neer te sit en breek sy sleutelbeen  :'(

Ek en Mundez het toe 16h00 gegooi tot in Vredendal en 18 h00 daar gekom hy het sy bakkie gevat en liewers om gery via bitterfontein. Ek het toe die teer huiswaarts geneem en 21:15 by die huis gestop.

Berm rooster en Hotsauce het by Lest gebly en hom mooi verbind en pyn medisyne gevoer. Die oom by Sanparke se kantoor het hom gaan haal in die duine en hulle het toe gisteraand by hulle in die huis gebly.

Lester hope Mundez has reached you in Groenrivier by now that shoulder must be pumpingon that gravelroad out.

Brilliant weekend brilliant riding sad crash.

He was wearing a Acerbis koerta and a Leatt.

This was in Piekenierskloop pass. We were waiting for a hour when we remembered about the old gravel pass. So me,die handbriek,JnrBull,Glen,Heimer and Reinet went up that way to get out of the blocked road.

We booked in at Vanrhynsdorp Caravan Park and sat down for some drinks. Here you can see Heimer with his 4 eyes waiting for his drink.

Ons het Donderdag so rondom 11:00 vanuit Upington vertrek Klein Pella toe waar ons die aand oornag het saam met n klomp ander honde…ons was 19 altesaam by Klein Pella en ons het lekker gekuier (die muskiete eh tons net amper weg gedra en die poue wou nie ophou raas nie daar was ook manne wat so effens ge-snork het) Ons het darem eers by Pofadder hotel gaan aanklop vir n ou versnapperingkie en toe kom Tau en sy groep daar aan…hulle het besluit om reguit Klein Pella toe te ry, want die braailus was darem net te groot. Ek en Beertjie en Uilspieel en Guizo was van plan om die Namakwa 4x4 roete van die begin af te ry tot in Klein Pella, maar ons het so lank vertoef in Pofadder (Dewald of te wel WESKUS se skuld) dat ons toe met die 4x4 roete gery het tot in Pella en toe direk deur gery het tot by Klein
Pella, wat self ook moet deel wees van die 4x4 roete as jy my vra.
Pella se Roman Catholic Mission…

Klein Pella gastehuis se kamp area….julle moes sien hoe het dit die vorigge aand gelyk….
(http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/8015/bash2011011a.jpg)

Van die ander honde wat daar by Klein Pella oornag het was vlnr…Uilspieel,Tweets,Stoffel en Laurika
(http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/3933/bash2011015a.jpg)

Vrydag was ons vroeg uit die vere, want die Namakwa 4x4 roete moes getem word, en nie een van ons was seker wat om te verwag nie en hoe lank dit sou vat om deur die roete tot by die bash site te kom nie want sien daar sal mos moes gestop word vir n ietsie ook. Vanaf Klein Pella tot by die groot pad was seker so 10km waarvan daar so n lekker 1km sand stuk was en sommer daar aan die begin het sekere manne die besluit geneem om eerder ander paaie te gaan verken as die beplande roete….swaar gepakte bikes en duksand mix nie so lekker nie. Tau en sy groep is 1ste weg gevolg deur ons groepie KTM manne met Fantie en sy span op ons hakke.
Hier staan ons en wag op Fantie-hulle..
(http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/2923/bash2011017a.jpg)
Die pad af na Witbank…
(http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/4581/bash2011023a.jpg)
Witbank info centre….
(http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/6383/bash2011027a.jpg)
Dit was n lieflikke dag vir sand ry, die weer het heeltemal saam gespeel en dit was lekker bewolk so ons het nie so vreeslik gesweet soos ons verwag het nie…hier staan ons en Tau se groep by die Groot Melkboom daar is eers n biertjie gedrink en Tau het ons lekker vermaak met die 660 Tenere.
(http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/9483/bash2011031a.jpg)
Ons volgende stop was dan Goodhouse….hier kry ons vir Fantie en Hans Boorman kom ook later daar aan….ons het n hele tydjie hier vertoef, want in ons agter koppe het ons geweet dat die “interesantse” gedeelte van die Namakwa 4x4 roete het nog vir ons gele en loer.
(http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/906/bash2011035a.jpg)
Vanaf Goodhouse was dit n baie lekker pad al teen die rivier af tot ons op die “grootpad” ge klim het verby Henkries….ek het nog nooit so n slegte grondpad beleef nie die sinkplaat het my stopsels los geskut….gelukkig was dit darem nie te ver voor ons weer moes afdraai vir die laaste gedeelte van die 4x4 roete nie, en dit was waar die sports begin het.
(http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/5852/bash2011039a.jpg)
(http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/5125/bash2011036a.jpg)
Hier het ek nie vreeslik foto’s geneem nie, ek was net te moeg van heeltyd met die sand monster stoei en dan was daar nog klipstukke tussendeur ook…ons het vir Tau en sy kamerade so 2km voor die passie gekry en 2 van hulle staan toe op dieselfde plek met papwiele….ons is by hulle verby en het die “passie / rots klim” aan gevat. Dit was sonder erge voorvalle behalwe vir Guizo met die 640 wat so n effense wanbalans oomblik ervaar het. Ons het bo-op die pas gestaan en Weskus het besluit dat ons die pas dalk net so n bietjie moet aanpas vir Tau, want hy is mos darem n man met Dakar drome en die pas was nou nie juis iets vir iemand met sy vermoens nie…..toe besluit ons maar om n paar GROOT klippe op strategiese plekke te sit sodat dit darem vir hom kan voel hy het ook so n effense challenge gehad (fokkit ons is darem nice pelle al moet ek dit nou self se) Nodeloos om te verduidelik….die man het die skills…kyk die 3rde foto waat hy op sy agter wiel is….hy mos sommer bo-oor die klippe.

(http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/4097/bash2011053a.jpg)
Ons raak toe erg lus vir n koue bier en dit was n probleem, want van dit waarvoor ons so lus was het ons niks gehad nie en die naaste plek vir n koue bier was Fiddlers Creek. Ons besluit toe om maar hoed vas te druk en maak dat ons by die bash kom….en ek het n afspraak gehad vir 14:00 om n lekker pakslae te kry by n klein mannetjie met n groot hart….dank die vader ek mis toe die pakslae met 4 minute

Daar was darem ook n tikkie opwonde die naweek toe Weskus na vele probeerslae en vreeslikke ge-soebat ook vir hom darem n girls los gepraat gekry het….hier is hy met haar oppad na die bo-dorp toe hy het iets gepraat van uit-eet en n movie….

Saterdag aand se kuier en prys uitdeling was baie lekker en daarna het ons manne van die bo-dorp nog so bietjie vas-gevat en so rondom 24:00 in gaan kruip. Ek en Hans Boorman en Uilspieel en Beertjie het nog die suide van Namibia gehad om te verken oppad huistoe ons is deur Warmbad en daarvanaf het ons so naby aan die rivier gehou as moontlik tot in Ariamsvlei….moes eers so n bietjie petrol heen en weer versprei om seker te maak die KTM se suip maniere maak nie dat van die manne te-voet op Ariamsvlei moes kom nie. Ons was so 16:00 gister middag op Upington en ons was gedaan.
Weereens baie dankie aan die organiseerders vir n onvergeetlikke naweek en aan al die lekker ouens en vrouens wat ek ontmoet het en al die ou kenisse wat weer raak gedrink is en die manne saam met wie ek gery het soontoe en terug…..dit sou nie helfde so lekker gewees het alleen nie.

OI Rynet ..... why u wearing a Kak Tjop Machine  jacket !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   

Just to be different, it is VERY unusual for anyone to be wearing a KTM jacket on a BMW, but VERY common for BMW clothing to be worn on KTM's....so one learns.... :biggrin: :peepwall:
However, I understand Rynet's BMW is pretty quick, it is now a bit QUICKER.... :biggrin:

Thanks Adventurer , I thought there was something wrong with my clutch ,as the clutch lever was a bit loose and the bike was losing power, but it turned out my throttle body cap had gone AWOL again.  Thanks for tightening the clutch and fixing the capless state with orange tape , she is running beautifully again , nothing wrong with the clutch.  :thumleft:

As for the KTM jacket , I got it at an excellent price and its the best jacket I have had , so comfy and ventilated and best it has 14 pockets  :thumleft: Now I can manage to ride without my handbag  :peepwall: :imaposer:

Wat 'n naweek! :thumleft:

1. Veldblom, Veldbrand en Maretha. Julle is ysters! Moerse dankie vir al julle harde werk! :thumleft: :thumleft: 8) Shark_ZA also helped a lot at the meat station as well as the prize giving. Thanks mate! :thumleft: Ok. Kilroy also did some work Friday afternoon. :eek:  :eek7: :imaposer:

2. Adam and Maudie. Thanks a lot for your perfect hosting of the bash. Kan nie beter gewees het nie! Bykosse was great en genoeg! Site is awesome!

3. Adam ran around and made fire every evening, sweating like a pig and leaving the dogs  to kuier. :biggrin:  8)

4. Aan my reis genote, Zetman, Groenie dag 1 en DB9 ook gister. Dankie vir die bestuur terug gister. Sou dit nie op my eie kon maak gister nie. 8) En dankie vir die lekker lag in die bakkie en jou interesante "running narrative" on the geological aspects along the roads, DB9! :biggrin: :thumleft:

5. Die bar men. Thanks a lot! These guys must have been out on their feet yesterday. Think they went on till 03H00 on Saturday morning and started again at around 09H00 same day till late again. 190 odd dogs clamoring for booze non-stop! Maudie had to go replnish their bar stock Saturday morning quick-quick. Het die honne bietjie onder skat. :biggrin: Thanks guys! :thumleft:

6. Aan die res. 6 years now. No problems ito of general "discipline".  ::) :biggrin: Seriaas. Dis moerse lekker om met 'n skoon gewete 'n bash te beplan en om die site te verlaat na die tyd. Befark! Julle almal rock! 8) :thumleft:

Ek weet ek mis dalk 'n ding of twee maar is seker dit sal uitkom soos die thread aangaan.


Funniest moment for me amongs many: Jacko wat 'n impromto balet dans doen om die vuur saam met 'n onverwagte en onwelkom Red Roman! :imaposer:

Jules and Li home safe and sound!


Had an epic time!!!

We stoetied up to the venue on Wednesday leaving JHB at 3am and arriving in Vioolsdrif at 5pm! and a sweltering 40 degrees  :o
Set up out tent and hit the bar to introduce ourselves to the friendly bar staff. after a few cold ones we lit the Swannie for some chow, Kilroy and Co arrived at around 9 and after assisting with getting them sorted we hit the bar again.

A Dip in the Orange! Water was awesome and flowing fast!!

After Canon we headed to Seeheim where I had a lekker swim at the hotel and had a cold beer  ;)
Did I mention it was CRAZY Hot!!!

Our initial plan was to do 400ks and then find a place to camp but by 3pm we had done 400ks and it was still way to hot to stop so we kept on till around 5pm, I saw a green tree line about 20ks west of the road we were on and we left the road and headed into the bush, after a bit of scouting we found a stunning shady spot in the dry river bed. We set up camp, had a braai and made a nice camp fire and proceeded to polish of 2L of warm red wine! What a feeling camping in the middle of nowhere with no sign of civilisation for miles in any direction!

After a great nights sleep we packed up and headed out towards Rosh Pinah at around 7:30am
This section of road was GREAT! nice fast sections with loads of sandy drifts to keep you on your toes!
Li and I were playing nicely and flew threw the drifts side by side at speed with smiles and shouts of"WhoooHooo!"

Once we hit the tar section just before Rosh Pinah the temp dropped to 10 degrees I was surprised at how quickly the temps changed from day to day here!
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/trips/2011bash50.jpg)

We made it back to the Border at Vioolsdrift at 12 and had a nice lunch at the Wimpy and got back to the venue by 1pm.

Here things got very festive very quickly!!!
Was great to chat dop and laugh with old friends and to make new ones!!

Wow wat n lekker Bash, my 4de een en hulle raak elke jaar net beter. Dankie aan almal wat met die reelings gehelp het dit was great.
Die braaipakke was weereens n treffer,jammer daai slaghuis is nie in die Kaap nie. Die pelle wat saam gejaag het,volgende keer ry ons
twee dae op en af. Was lekker om al die bekendes te sien, dit is die groot rede hoekom n ou elke jaar die bash bywoon.

In Pofadder, we met up again with Welsh and Shark and had a lekker breakfast consisting of chops, sosaties, wors, vienna's and bacon.

Local slaghuis braaing on the pavement.

Baie beter en lekkerder as 'n Wimpy ontbyt en die chat met die locals priceless! Dit is maar net anders op hierdie klein plattelandse dorpies.  8) :thumleft:

Yes, yes, yes!

Lekker to put some faces to forum chirps, make new friends, drink a few with some old friends and laugh a helluva lot.
Also the biggest birthday party I’ve ever had. Didn’t even have to invite anybody…

As Journeyman mentioned a huge thanks to Maudie and crew for looking after us and being very helpful with everything.
Great venue and even better company.

Pity about the few soldiers who fell but by the sound of it, nothing too serious.
Hope y'all heal soon.
I think a few okes will take longer to get over their babbelasse…. :biggrin:

Thanks guys and girl ............... it was great riding with you  :thumleft: :thumleft:

I didn't take lots of photos so here is what I got.

Raka and myself left Thursday after work for Delareysville where we stayed over at one of his friends' house.

Photo 1:  Next morning at Delareysville 6am

Photo 2:  Long boring tar stretches.  That's upington 160km to go.  Another 6 and half hours to the bash.

PHoto 3: Outside Pofadder, it's time for a Beer.

Photo4:  Same

We arrived at the Bash scene with only a half hour sunlight to spare. That is  1100km in the saddle all day.

Friday night I had a lekker jol with the Northern Cape dogs, and met a lot of the guys.  Lekker laat gesuip in die bo dorp

Then later I kept Dodo, BAll and Chain and Arfar busy.  I tucked Arfar in bed at 4am, and then went to bed myself.

Saturday Morning I was begging somebody to take a ride with me.   So Berm Rooster walks up to me.

Bermie:  Boer wil jy ry.

Ek:  Ja.

Bermie:  Nou kom ons fokkof.

And off we go.


PHoto1:  Pragtig

Photo2:  Moerse klippe.  Bermie got pissed off at the people writing their names on these stones.

Photo 3:  Nog Pragtig,  Maar is die die regte pad ooit?

PHoto 4:  I all of a sudden get great respect for Veldbrand en Veldblom.  He told me he did this road with a 1150GS with Pillion all the way to Port Nolloth.  Faark.  We hit 30 km of this shit deep sand riverbed, and I miss my Dakar standing at home. 

PHoto 5:  Sandmonster grabs my front wheel!  I fly over the handlebars and last thing I see before I black out is a black block of flats falling on top of me.

My ribs is sore, my shoulders hurt, wrists are sore en my koppie raas.

Berm Rooster turns around because I am not coming back and the sand roads only get worse ahead.

We call it quits, but we find the only tree in the Groenrivier loop, and have lunch.  Biltong en brannewyn, oppie klippe.  Letterlik!

Photo 1:  View from the lunch spot

PHoto 2:  Same desolation. A magical place.  I will be back with my smaller bike.

PHoto 3:  Bermie.  Tx vir jou hulp Tjom.  Ek was maar seer en my koppie het geraas, my Koos Wye Voete en Biltong maak mens weer kans sien vir die pad terug.

PHotos 4:  On the way back I have 3 punctures just to make sure I have a Super Kak day.  Again, Berm Rooster helps out.

Photo 5:  I hang back and try artistic photos, but walking and climbing this little koppie without using my arms turns out to be tough.

Photo 6:  Another shot.

Nope, we got lost.  Took the first turn off left, instead of going straight.  I've got a map of the section.  I will post it here.

edit:  Here is the map.  If Only I had this before the time.


Redline is the correct route.  Green line is where we were and turned around.  Seems it is a dead end road anyway.

Green Arrow is the left split we got wrong
Red Arrow is the left split we were suppose to take.

Sunday Morning, I am stiff and sore and luckilly I had my trailer at the bash in case somebody else fell.  Irony hey?  ???


So the rebeldogs help me load the bike onto the trailer, (I was too full of painkillers)  And off we go to PTA with Shebangu and Joupa.  But 10km out when we hit the tar....


Title: Re: National Bash ride Report
Post by: BOER! on October 18, 2011, 11:17:33 am
So I offload the bike, and I head back to the campsite.  Seems I just got a weeks holiday!!!

 :biggrin:

But Veldbrand has got space for me on his trailer, so yet again I have a lift home, and I can't stay behind to ride the bike back.

We stop over in Upington, and I camp on the banks of the orange river in the first TWO MAN STEALTH CAMPER TENT


PHoto 1:  Bike offloaded, and I head back to the campsite.

pHOTO 2:  Tent pitched, Dogs not included.

PHoto 3:  Next morning Sunrise on the banks of the orange river.

Green Arrow is the left split we got wrong
Red Arrow is the left split we were suppose to take.

Ek het ook daar gaan ry. Het terug gekom net toe julle gaan. Jammer julle het nie vroeer laat weet nie dan kon ons saam gaan.

Daai roete gaan in die Nababiep reservaat in

Seven of us met in Laingsburg for the trip to the bash. Myself. Louwtjie,Frannarossi.Fenderbender.Nimmo,Mapsource and
Bermrooster.
The MoordenaarsKaroo was not as wet as the previous trip I did trough there.
&feature=youtu.be
But it had this one single driffie that was over a blindrise and cuaght us all out.
Bermpie just popped two gears down and planed over.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0526.jpg)

Fenderbender was more relaxed.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0528.jpg)

Then came Mapcource and nearly emptied the whole driffie.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0529.jpg)

The big man Louwtjie made a sizeable splash.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0530.jpg)


I took this pic of Nimmo too fast.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0532.jpg)

Frannarossi breaked as hard as he could but hit the water at speed.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0535.jpg)

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0536.jpg)

We had a cold one in Middelpos before we took the Rooiwalroad to Calvinia.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0538.jpg)

I like this road through the Roggeveld mountains.
Fenderbender.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0540.jpg)

Nimmo.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0541.jpg)

Mapsource.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0542.jpg)

Our tiny campsite in Calvinia.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0545.jpg)

We had breakfast in Loeriesfontein. Saw so many bikes I thought they had changed the bash venue.
We rode to Bitterfontein and then Garies. Got onto dirt again there.

Frannarossi in the Langkloof.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0548.jpg)

WE hit tar again at Kammieskroon. It was getting late. Had a bite to eat in Springbok bought some stuff and hit the road to Viools.
I visited this campsite for the first time in Dec of 1999 on my way to Namibia and have been back many times.
I have never seen it so full. Great party ,people and food.
At about twelve I made my way to my tent and this little chap followed me all the way.
As I unzipped my tent he just walked in as if he is doing it every night. He stayed until 7 the next morning and then walked away and got into Bradleys tent!!!!

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0550.jpg)

I took no pics at the bash. I knew there would be thousands.
Sundaymorning we left early back to Springbok and then Wildeperdehoekpass. Weskus joined us.
The little jail in the pass.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0552.jpg)

In Soebatsfontein Weskus left us for Vredendal. We rode to Garies. Filled up and left for Kotzesrust.
Met Pathfinder and misses on the winkelstoep. We invited them to Gert du Toit se baai for the evening.
They took the inland route to get there.

Brand se Baai.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0555.jpg)

Always a beautiful ride all along the coast. A friend of mine brought us some wood.
Weskus and misses visited us for the evening.
At least there was one partyanimal.
Meet Bismarck!!!!

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0557.jpg)

It was a great evening at a stunning place.

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0558.jpg)

This one I took for Oom 2strokeDan!!!

(http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss269/chrislouw/IMG_0559.jpg)

The next day was dirt to Lutzville and tar all the way home. Strong winds and lots of roadworks was on the cards.

I like the bash every year as it is a kind of mad dash to get there. So many places and so many people I only remember half of it when I get back home.

Thanks to the guys who rode with me.

Roll on next year. :mwink: :thumleft:

Part of the ride Bie and I would do on the way back on Sunday would be on the R354 from Calvinia to Middelpos, and then on to Ganagga.

Ag nee man, se Oom Chris vir ons die Saterdag, dis vervelig, jy ry so 'n by-pass om die berge, daars mooi paadjies, maar pasop net vir daai snotgladde driffie. Se wie, ek kan mos bike ry. Ja-nee.

We were joined later by Sprocketbek and Firecoast

Friday
Back to the western front of roads and old tracks and another little fall while going down a rocky mountain,  to finally get to Springbok and cut our ride shorter to make Bushwacked early so we can get a decent campsite,

I joined Oom Fourie`s party(incl, Praticia the stripper ! ) for the return trip home , as Crossed-up and AntonW have taken leave to explore the roads enroute Cape Town.
To return back in Cape Town only this Friday

What is going on here GG  ???

Just some knee repairs. No major problem, but screwed up my bash plans.

Glad to see the bashers had a good time - some awesome pics here.

Shot guys - see you next year !

Yep, and rumour has it that it might be close to home for us. Not that I'm complaining. Bie and I had a great trip there and back.

Thanks to JM and the rest for organising a good time. Met a lot of Dogs and had some good laughs.

5 bash stickers on 6th to arrive

Our party started in Springbok the Thursday when Kurt and Daniel found us walking down the road to go have supper at the Springbok Lodge. No pics of this as it was a closed function ……

Then on to Bushwacked the next day to be early so we could carry on where we left off.

And so the pics will tell the story …..

I can’t exactly remember how it came to be that ChrisL and I made arrangements to meet in Laingburg.  Must have been fate… ::)

All I do remember is getting updates, every so often on where we were going to have breakfast, camping he booked etc.  I must admit I was looking forward to traveling with him as he is known for his knowledge about places and some history behind them.  After having read some of the ride reports he had posted, I was sure it was going to be a nice and scenic trip at a leisurely pace through the unknown.  Also I was sure that I would not get lost along the way.
He mentioned that had gotten a small group together, and that we would all be meeting at the Wimpy in Laingsburg on Thursday before the BASH.   Laingsburg was 500km south from me, despite this it would give me the opportunity to see a part of the country I have not seen before – Sutherland etc. :thumleft:

As with most of us, time / work / family  is always a issue, and I decided to leave late Wednesday afternoon and overnight in Beaufort West.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011357.jpg)
(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011359.jpg)

I could then leave early Thursday morning to be in Laingsburg on time.  Due to the HEAVY road works on the N1 I was afraid I might be late – this was the most boring part of the trip, but I was sure the leisurely ride through to Calvinia would make up for it.  After all ChrisL always posts the most beautiful pictures of flowers and animal life. :mwink:

I was the first to get to Laingsburg and it did not take long before the others started arriving.  The group was myself, Fenderbender, Mapsource, Louwtjie, Frannarossi, ChrisL & Bermrooster all guys I have never met before.  We had a quick bite to eat and as we were getting ready to leave Bermrooster saw his brand new tyre had collapsed – that after having fitted it just the day before.  (In retrospect this should have been my first clue – but we will get to that a bit later :mwink:)

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011365.jpg)
(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011366.jpg)

The road out of Laingsburg was in good condition and the water as Chris mentioned had subsided quite a bit.  It did make for some interesting riding though.  The scenery was great.  The moordenaars karoo.

When they eventually stopped I noticed Fenderbender had already finished his cigarette  :eek7:– that was how far behind I was.  Seems like HP2’s only travel at warp speed…  (Chris’s comment rang through – he is now much more “rustig” after his off” - I was almost glad I only now got to meet him… :pot:)

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011367.jpg)

After realizing that Chris and the guys were not as much set on a scenic photo shoot as I was, I had to stop and quickly take a few photos every now and then.  They have traveled this road before and must have already taken some pictures…

Steadily it struck me FrannaROSSI, 2 HP2’s, Chris with the new 1200, and Bermrooster that fried a tyre just from home (that does not happen at slow speed)  – this was going to be a speed trip and I was going to have to keep up, not as easy if you usually ride alone.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011369.jpg)
(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011370.jpg)

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011376.jpg)

It  was here that I noticed my rim had a bend in it, and that despite having done the progressives on the 800, the rim had now gone the way most other 800 rims had - &$#@*^.  I was not happy with this, Bermrooster said it was nothing to be worried about, and I took him on his word.  Although walking away one of the others commented he would ride it even if the tube showed…   :pot:

We got to Sutherland and filled up ready to head towards Calvinia, as we were about ready to go a Gov health vehicle came riding in with the most terrible sound, the bakkie had a flat.  The girl got out and started walking towards the store – with pure intentions Mapsource and Louwtjie pointed out the tyre was flat and immediately the girl was on the phone to get the HIGH command to rescue her.  Still with the most noble of intentions Mapsource and Louwtjie show WD chivalry and offered to change the tyre….  I wonder if the top had anything to do with it… :pot:

Frannarossi also discovered that Sutherland stocked his favorite cigar at less than half price and promptly bought what he could carry…

We left a happy lady and off we went to Middelpos, this was the first time I had traveled this way.

For someone that doesn’t drink I sure look happy to be here in one piece, especially after Bermie went sideways through the driffie and managed to warn us before we had the same experience as Jupiter. :ricky:

Onwards to Calvinia

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011383.jpg)

As we drove in we met Tankwa, we that ride at the back needed to get our visors cleaned…

Note the BA Barakkus helmet hair O0

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/13102011393.jpg)

We had a nice braai and the guys enjoyed the refreshments.  It was the first time someone actually snored me awake – still do not know who it was.  We were off the following morning to Loeriesfontein for a nice breakfast Chris had arranged.  It was well worth it, thanks again Chris. :thumleft:

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011402.jpg)

From there we headed towards Garies  (Chris help bietjie met die name)

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011404.jpg)

Just before Garies I met up with some local wildlife – not very friendly though - all I got was “Het jy nie ‘n f@kken haas gesien verbygaan nie” I left him and headed to meet the others at the N7.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011405.jpg)
(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011406.jpg)

Garies was a nice clean place but I think it gets VERY hot up against those mountains.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011408.jpg)

We filled up and head south back towards CT to get a turnoff to what Chris later explained was close to where (EDIT) Dolfie and he camped along the river after they were at Mof's party.
In Leliefontein the guys enjoyed some cold ones – on the other side of the road.  :deal:

The guys – Frannarossi

We headed back to the N7 and did the last bit on tar, in Springbok we had a quick lunch (at 16H00).
 
(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/14102011420.jpg)

We arrived at Bushwacked at 17H30 give or take.  The camera was put away as what happens the first night stays at Bushwacked.  But I can tell you this – this bitch did not only sleep in Chris’s tent.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/15102011421.jpg)

After having had some “debatable” pork that travelled with the previous night I nearly wet myself  when Louwtjie started telling his story of having to duck to get out of the tent but realizing he could not afford to duck to get out of the tent.  Ducking would put him in a vulnerable position…     and the ablutions were still far off.   Louwtjie a guy that offers coffee to everyone and then there is nothing left for himself – Great guy with a unique way of words.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/15102011438.jpg)

Apparently not…  BUT some sure tried to make up for his mistake.

Just after I took this photo I learned the meaning of life and death of ants  –  Thanks Roelof  the ants will now go down like flies so to speak – that piece of advice was worth the entire trip alone……

That said the bugs were not as bad as thought and I did not even use the liter of bug spray I took with to defend my life.

(http://i980.photobucket.com/albums/ae290/Jeanvanderwalt/BASH%202011/16102011461.jpg)

I rode back to Springbok and had breakfast with the guys there, then we split up and I took the Upington road home with the idea of staying over at ETS.  When I got to Prieska I decided to shoot for home rather and surprise the kids. 
The dark caught me and I did the last 30min in the dark.  Got home at 19H00 – 1138km later (sorry Roelof I was wrong, not 1400km)

Thanks to the organizers – the venue, food and planning was spot on.

Thanks to a great bunch of guys that waited for me and made me feel welcome, and for Chris for making all the arrangements.  A wise man once said “Respect is earned and not given” – well you have earned mine. :thumleft:

Was great to have you with us Nimmo.
One correction though.
I mentioned in Doringkraal that it is where Dolfie and I camped along the river after we were at Mof's party.
Mof's farm is actually 40kms from Middelpos.
Im sorry if we were rideing a wee bit too fast. Everything takes longer in big groups so one has to step up the pace.

We had great service there on the way to the bash. Bought some meat and beers there for a braai and they suggested we stay over at a place 40km's from there called Vastrap.

My 1st bash and definitely not my last, great to put faces to forum names. My son found a s/s hop flask at on the counter at the spot where we shared a site with Weskus and the boys. Let me know who it belongs to and I'll send it on.

This pic is off Stoetbul when he and Weskus sprayed themselves with doom to ward off the flies, before the Doc told them of the dangers of spraying poison all over your body. Stoetbul covered his nipple with doom  :biggrin:

Die beste was sy het vir Maudie gevra om iemand te soek om haar met n fiets huistoe te vat!!
Toe kom vra Maudie my wie sal dit doen.
Toe Weskus met haar by die huis kom toe sê die tannie dis jammer die pad net niks draai opgehad!!!!!!!

Myself & Pure Orange took a cruise through the Southern parts of Namibia after the bash.
We joined PJ & tour for the first part but they were heading for Sendelingsdrift after stealth camping; we were heading for
Ai-Ais.

We took an unmarked road towards the river at a certain point and arrived at a locked and gaurded gate.
No problem for tour: He has the gift of negotiation like I have seldom witnessed before.  ;D

My pics are rather boring. Before somebody points it out, let me confess: It's a collection of pics of two 990's in various locations.

Whilst on our way to Karasburg Pure Orange pointed out a massive dust devil several kilometers away to our right.
It was huge. It seemed the top of it spiralled all the way into the clouds.
Usually they don't last long. After watching it for easily two minutes I decided to stop & take a photo: Murphy's law, it subsided and I only caught the last of it.

I had to apply some severe Photoshopping to make it visible:

We left Namibia via Ariamsvlei and did some low-flying towards Upington.
Booked a chalet at Oranjerus  :thumleft: In this RR I see some dogs were there on the way to the bash.

We had one left-over beer each from the previous evening. They were still cold from sleeping in the fridge so we made a pitstop to enjoy some beer & biltong.

As we were travelling the wind steadily picked up. Eventually it was blowing gale force diagonally from the front.  ::)
It became very cold and overcast. In Calvinia we donned our rain jackets.

We were heading for P.O.'s house at Misverstand dam.
It started to rain heavily at Klawer; by Citrusdal darkness set in. Piekeniers Kloof Pass was a matter of roadworks, darkness & rain.

It rained heavily overnight and the gravel road from the dam to the N7 was tricky! Made it without mishap though.

From there it was a matter of slabbing it home on the N7; the rain stopped near Malmesbury.

I had done about 2700 km since leaving home.

A WD left his neck brace/cushion at the Nieuwoudtville Hotel.  I brought it to Cape Town, as apparently its owner hails from here.  PM me if you'd like it back, otherwise I rather fancy it!

Great bash and lots of laughs. The ride back was something else. Thank you CU for an amazing route. If it was the last ride I ever did I could have not asked for better.

Another fantastic bash at a great venue, which took us city bikers to another far flung, interesting place.

This year, due to the distance to the venue, I decided it was crazy to slab it all the way on knobbies from JHB to Upington then start dirt, I decided to trailer to Olifantshoek, where fellow wild dog, Stoffel  lives in a construction camp. We would leave the bakkie & trailer at the camp, and continue on the bikes from there to the bash. I mentioned this to Laurika, and she opted to join me immediately. This decided, I contacted Stoffel, and it was decided to leave the bakkie and trailer at a resort outside Upington where we would sleep the Wednesday night. This arranged, I picked up Laurika’s Plaasmiesie late Tuesday afternoon. My choice for this bash run, was my trusty old 1150GS. (Its far better in the sand than the 1200GS)

Early Wednesday morning I picked Laurika up and set course for Olifantshoek, to meet Stoffel. Stopped in Vryburg to buy a couple of things, then pushed on to Shishen where we stopped at the Shell and took this pic of their old  “tools”
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF36871024x768.jpg)
Did the toilet thing and pushed on to meet Stoffel next to the road, 10km before Olifantshoek. Having “haaked” Stoffel with his 1200GSA, we stopped in Olifantshoek for a quick bite then pushed on to Upington.

Arriving in Upington, we met other dogs (Rickus, Fanta) , and a crowd at the first garage where they invited us to join them down the road for drinks, which were readily welcomed,  given the heat in the late afternoon. After drinks we headed for Oranjerus, on the southern banks of the mighty Orange River, about 15km downstream of Upington.

Arriving at Oranjerus, we booked in, found our chalet. Once our sleeping arrangements were sorted we went about offloading the bikes and oiling Plaasmiesies chain.
This done we rush along to the local restaurant / pub which had a magic river bank deck, where we relaxed and enjoyed the magnificent sunset, which this part of the world can present.

Here we also had a delicious light meal, then later retired in anticipation of Thursdays riding. It was decided to have breakfast in Kakamas,  I wanted to visit the Pink Padstall, then Riemvasmaak, and Augrabies, before continuing to Klien Pella , other side Pofadder, where we had reserved rooms for the night.  Early morning saw us all pack our bikes, kit up and mount our steeds. Here is Laurika and Stoffel waiting to leave.

 I had to take the bakkie and trailer to its parking spot for the next few days, until our return after the bash.

We left Oranjerus, continuing on the road running along the southern banks of the river to Kakamas, which became dirt, and really an enjoyable ride all the way to Kakamas.

Here I noticed these “tit” koppjies, so stopped and took this pic.
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF3694a1024x768.jpg)

Quite remarkable how nature has formed these places.

Arriving in Kakamas we found out Stoffel had lost his one “BMW GS” glove. Stoffel wanted to continue the trip without his glove. I suggested he go buy a pair of cheap leather gloves at the local Landmark, over the road from the restaurant.  I then realised he could only have lost it where he had stopped to take pic’s of us passing him, some 10 to 15km before Kakamas, so I said I would backtrack the route and hopefully find the glove. He decided to accompany me. We got Laurika sorted at a local small restaurant as one leaves the town toward Poffadder, where she would wait for us in the cool environment of the building.

So off we went back the route we had just come. Sure as expected, I was leading, and found the glove exactly where I suspected it to be, at a certain bend. Stoffel was obviously very relieved to be reunited with his glove.
Stoffel in a hurry
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF37001024x768.jpg)

We sped back to Kakamas, and upon arrival at the restaurant, we found another dog, YoYo, sniffing Laurika’s butt. After sniffing him out we found out, we found out he was from PE, and also on his way to the bash. We told him we were first going to see Riemvasmaak and Augrabies before proceeding to Klien Pella for the overnight stop.  He decided to go directly to Klein Pella, and join us there. We had a very enjoyable breakie , then decided to fill up at the local petrol station. Here it was decided to conduct “on road” repairs to Plaasmiesie’s rear brake lever, which was set too high and hindering Laurika’s comfortable foot position. Here Yo Yo, help immensely and got the lever sorted quickly.  There after we visited the Pink Padstal. This is a must on you “to see list”, if in the area.     
Here is their Kuir Corner.

With time waiting for no man, we proceeded to Riemvasmaak, where we were interested in visiting the hot springs pools.
Stoffel and Laurika on the way to Riemvasmaak.

Interesting . Here it was extremely hot. Normally when it gets hot I open my visor slightly to allow wind in to cool off slightly. This did not work in this heat. I was opening a hatch of a coal boiler, and the searing heat just bangs you. Better to ride with every thing closed. Even our thick BMW jackets.

Riemvasmaak Hot Springs Reception. 30 Rond each person and 15 Rond per bike. Fark Me. Oh,  its in a nature reserve – NO WELL FINE – OK and pay up.

I later jumped in again, once fully dressed, (Except my jacket). This later proved to be very nice once riding again.

We left Riemvasmaak, and proceeded to Blouputs, through this rocky , dry strange, rocky dry /  landscape,

On the way “back” towards Augrabies, we stopped and had refreshments. Shit, its moer hot out here! 41Deg-C, and 15km to Augrabies. Stoffel decided on “War Paint”.

Augrabies, saw us dash into the restaurant, and its air-con interior. BLISS, I say!
Here  we relaxed, and downed a couple. Then realising we were hungry, we ordered 2 x “Subs” and chips for us three. Just as well, we only ordered 2, because 3 would have been too much. They were massive things. Once refreshed with shadows starting to stretch, we did the “falls” pic thing.

We left town for Klein Pella as the light was failing, so we had a bit of dirt to do in the dark (Result of enjoying the air-con interior of Augrabies restaurant, in the heat of the day, too long !)

Arriving at Klein Pella, we found lotsa dogs had the same intentions as us. About 20 or so other dogs had booked into the establishment, with some taking rooms, and others “slumming” it in tents.  Looking at this lot, it looked like a “mini”- Rally Raid with all the orange around.
 What an interesting place. My reason for stopping over here, was to learn more about their 14 000 date trees. We booked in and before I knew it, Stoffel had accompanied Laurika for a dip in
the pool. We then had a wonderful dinner, prepared by the local “kitchen” staff, here on the “edges of the desert.
Other guys leaving. They say they are going to do the 4 x 4 Route. (Best of  luck) We hear its BAD, big time!

AS you can see on the pics. Due to the intense heat in this part of the world. They build a second roof over the first to have an Air-Cap, to help keep life cool a bit. Moer hot here, is an under-statement

Next morning I arranged for a visit to the Date Palm groves. The lady at reception, explains how to get to the “pakhuis” where we were to meet Jors, who would show us around.  We rode, and rode, for 20km to their “pakhuis”

More dogs arrive. In the middle of no where, going somewhere.
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF37951024x768.jpg)
They are going to the bash via Henkries, but we going all the way down to Concordia and on to  Okiep,  to uplift fuel etc. (There is none at the bash venue)
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF37961024x768.jpg)
We proceed, and the landscape becomes more desert-ish. Here we are doing through a few koppjies, and have to cross this “plain” ahead of us, to cross the mountains in the disctance.

This is a mooi road. Mooi van ver, maar ver van mooi, with its sand on top of the harder lower road surface. Must be 20-30km to cross this “plain”.

Had another great meal, and we leave for the bash site.

Another panoramic round view, of the country side (Specially for those who did not undertake this crusade.)

Arriving at the bash , there are already lots of dogs, and camping sites are starting to get scares. We squeeze in to the same area as the famous Kilroy.

The evening was spent at the bar area, meeting old buddies and new ones. Stoffel and myself decided the next day (Saturday) we are crossing the border and going to do the round I planned westward on the northern , Namibian side of the river, toward Rosh Pina minig area, then cross back into RSA at Sendelingsfontein.

 Stoffel and myself retire to our tents early.  At about 23H00, I realise we made a bad camp position decision. In pulls Kilroy with half the bash on tow, to continue parting next to my tent. SHIET. I am in any case so “bushed” I faded sometime to dream land.

Saturday sees us awaken and take a shower, before crossing the border.

Here is the village of Aussenkehr. All the local inhabitants shelters / houses are made of reeds, sourced from the river. They even have a SPAR here.

We decide, that due to the time marching on, and it getting late, we would give Eksteenfontein a miss, and go to Alexander Bay, then down to Port Nolloth for a meal, then Steinkorpf to fill up with juice again, return to the Bash site at Vioolsdrift.
 These are pics of the area, between Sendlingsdrift and Alexander Bay.

We slab it to Kaakamas, then take the Good Stuff again to Oranjerus, where the trailer and bakkie are.

Outside  Kaakams a found this nice “kokerboom” right next to the road and stopped for this pic.
(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20National%20Bash%202011/DSCF39371024x768.jpg)


We got to the bakkie and trailer at 14H30. Loaded up the bikes, and changed into comfy gear. Here we bid Stoffel farewell, so he could ride on quickly this place outside Olifantshoek. We then made a bee-line for Vryburg, where we arrived at 20H00 booked into the International Hotel, and had a wonderful dinner with Jules, Li, Kurt, Tonteldoos and others, reminiscing over the bash.

Then,  after a good rest, we left at 07:15 for Delaryeville where we again met Kurt and Tonteldoos, for breakie, at the Wimpy. This done we parted ways, with Kurt and Tonteldoos, disappearing into the distance on their bikes, while Laurika and myself jugged along at 115 – 120 to Joburg, arriving at her place at 13:30

Another wonderful Wild dog bash, and trip , consigned to memory.
Thanks to Laurika and Stoffel for accompanying me on this trip. It was really great enjoying this trip with you guys.

Very nice to see all my WD Buddies again.

Thanks to the organisers for this wonderful event, at another remote , interesting part of RSA. This was truly a wonderful bash. See you all next year again. Have a wonderful, safe Christmas and New year.

North, South, West, East
Hazzard asked me if I was going to do one of my normal roundabout routes to arrive at the bash as he knows that I have the habit of stopping here and there doing sight seeing on a trip, so I plotted a scenic tour through the Rammelskop pass to Sutherland, Ouberg pass, Katbakkies pass, cedarberg, bash, Augrabies ,Boegoesberg, Craddock and finally home. This was the first time Hazzard has ridden his GSA on gravel and was soon to discover it is a little bit heavier than his XT660.He did extremely well with no offs and our bikes never gave a moments hassle over the 3900+/- kilometre trip.
First off I would like to say thanks to those that organised everything; it was great even with its small hiccup here and there. It was fantastic to see so many new faces and meet real DS riders and not keyboard jockeys that cannot ride more than 50-300km and yet make more chirps and noise than 8 year old kids at a Justin Bieber concert. >:D
The mixed breed of DS bikes was an awesome sight and proves that you do not get unreliable bikes anymore. The only two bike issues that I’m aware off were quickly sorted out with the input of over a hundred and ninety dogs.
My highlight was meeting all the old faces again, the Petes, Andys, Gerhards,Cockys and Kobus’s ect.
To those that missed it due to commitments, you guys and girls missed a good one thankfully there will be one next year.
Here are a few dozen photos which made the trip worth every kilometre travelled.
1=Meringspoort pass
2=Lazy lizard or lazy Drazil
3+4=on route to Rammelskop pass
5=Hazzard enjoying his first of many river crossings
Title: Re: National Bash ride Report
Post by: DRAZIL on October 24, 2011, 03:54:49 pm
Just before this river crossing my GPS suddenly lost all tracks and maps and showed us we were in the outer limits somewhere between the Komsberg pass and Rammelkop pass, after a fantastic twee spoor gravel obstacle course we arrived at a game farm. Farmer brown told us we took the wrong split so back we went through sand, rocks and rivers till everything came back online, Hazzard was now thinking about selling his GSA as we started our final mountain climb towards Sutherland.
I had two scares one when approaching river crossing my back tyre suddenly went into a pot hole which was filled with powder and started to wash out but a bit of power corrected this and the second going over a blind rise there was a major crevice in front of me but too powered out and around that.(reminder, must get a head cam)
1+2=Drazil
3=last stretch to Sutherland
4+5=next morning checking out the observatory

Title: Re: National Bash ride Report
Post by: DRAZIL on October 24, 2011, 03:58:43 pm
1+2= observatory (a first for Hazzard)
3=sheep crossing at the top of Ouberg pass.
4= wilderness porn with a view, notice how he uses the cliff to full advantage. >:D
5=ouberg pass on our way to the boring stretch.
6= Cederberg oasis at the bottom.

Contrary to believe and folklore is die 660 Tenere Kark swak. Goeie fietsie, maar sal sukkel om die skuim van 'n cuppacino te trek.

Ek het nie bedoel om so in die draai in te gaan nie, maar met die plakkies wat ek onder my gat vasknyp wat my konsentrasie breek, was die amper.  Ek het nie daai gesave nie, ek het net nie geval nie.....was my lucky dag  :biggrin:.

Blackball, was nice to see you again!

Oh, and that goes for Blackbitch as well ( I still prefer this name :) )
What is her boets name on the forum, not talking about GJ



Likewise Snafu , it was very nice to see all the familiar faces that I have met before and also meet for the first time , but because you have read there ride reports and saw their pictures it feels like you are old friends.

Kriek1, the artist formally known as Blackbitch ‘s brother is (Dirk) Quicksilver .
Ek sien sy is al weer in die moeilikheid omdat sy haar hare laat hang het , ongelukkig oor Frannarossie se kop. Ha ha ha

Dankie man, wou nie vir Dirk so uitspel nie, ten minste weet ek nou wat sy forum naam is :)

Arme kriek, die manne moet maar hulle pyne vat :)
Dit is die nice ding om jou vrou saam te vat, niks wat jou later kan byt nie :)

Dink julle dit sal die situasie help as julle verduidelik ek is 'n lesbian (not).  Just a thought.  Meskien maak dit die klap sagter as da wife my ontmoet.  Eks skadeloos ouens, net 'n moerse party animal. :pot:

Hi Snafu

Dirk is huidiglik Grysie op die forum, maar hy is nie active nie.  Ek het hom maar geregistreer en as hy kom kuier dan visit ons die site.  Die ou het nie eers 'n clue van computers af nie LOL.  Gaan hom nog leer.

Hy wil die naam verander na Quicksilver.  Ons werk nog daaraan.
