WC Pigfest
« on: March 10, 2013, 11:08:42 pm »
Ek begin graag hierdie fred oor seker die lekkerste groepry waarop ek al was. Saterdag se roete van Kransgat, deur die Tankwa, oor die Posroete tot by Oase was absoluut fantasties! Elke soort terrein (behalwe grootpad natuurlik) en die groep het net gekliek. Die vinnige manne kon vooruit speel en die rustige manne was nooit te ver agter nie. Boonop was daar nie 'n oomblik se teespoed nie, die 2 papwiele in die kamp tel mos nie. Ek moet weereens bysê dat ek nog lekker mense ontmoet het, soos met meeste WD rides. Baie dankie almal.
Ek sal maar afskop met 'n paar fotos van vroeg Vrydagaand toe my vrou so 'n paar geneem het, check die 'jpg - titels' vir die name. Ek sien uit na al die kiekies en videos van die helmet cams.

Dit was aanvanklik maar meesal 'n gewag vir die spit met gepaardgaande kakpraat.

This was one AWESOME ride!!!

Thanks to everybody involved, to Mof and his wife for the spit and effort on Friday night and for our fearless leader Dave for organizing everything. It was to date one, if not the best ride I have done. Great group of guys and the terrain we rode through was truly awe inspiring.

Oasis was again, well, a Oasis and those ribs.... Good grief! And thanks for JC, my wingman for the trip. Was befok ou, ons maak weer so!  :thumleft:

I am downloading some pic's and will post soon.

Moerse dankie aan almal wat die trip moontlik gemaak het. Almal wat die trip meegemaak het is sout van die aarde. Net so 'n paar kiekies:

Ons stop by Tankwa padstal. Die vrou is besig om boontjies te sny vir 'n bredie. Tau chat met die locals.


Draadskaap op Middelpos se winkel:


Koningskos by Kransgat. Mof het vir ons tortillas neergesit en ons het skaap spit wraps gemaak.


Die volkskinders by Mof se plaas. Hulle wou net gehad het ons moes soos hooligans aangaan. Niemand het natuurlik gestry daarteen nie.


Weird Tazz naby Stonehenge.


Doringrivier soos gesien vanaf die posroete.


Sonsopkoms time lapse by Cederberg Oasis (weetie hoe om te embed nie).

From Stonehenge the riding just got insanely awesome.













And that was my last pic.... None from here to Wuppertal and towards Oasis, sorry....

JC, Tau and myself stopped for a quick beer or four at Vaalbaas's "workshop". It is a dump!







What a place!

And the steeds, just before the last stretch home. Thanks for the tip Tau, that gravel road was lekker but the N7 almost killed me.... I hate the N7.





Again, thanks guys. It truly was a fantastic ride!  :thumleft:

Nice to see real bikes out on a ride.

Man, I love Hondas.

What an awesome ride...had rain from Stellenbosch to Prince Alfred Hamlet, and from there, cool weather all the way to Kransgat.

Took no pics, but to me the highlights:

The group,
The ride in to Kransgat,
Kransgat,
The spit,
The "kuier"
Some more spit,
Sleeping under the stars,
Waking up in the middle of nowhere,
The remainder of the spit for breakfast,
Route from Elandsvlei to Oasis,
The spirit of all the riders...and the one pic I'll never forget:
