Ride report: Father/Son Bash - Koedoeskloof : 30 Oct, 1 & 2 Nov
« on: November 03, 2014, 11:28:41 am »
At some point it seemed like this bash was not gonna happen, but thanx to a few die hard father/son combo's we managed to have a great get together and we all agreed that it is an amazing privilege to do this with our sons.

Gwild and I left together from Durbanville and met up with KTM Kev in Montagu.  It was getting rather late so we decided to just stay on the main gravel all the way to Koedoeskloof.











The Saturday morning we all took it real slow.  KTM Kev eventually asked whether there is any sort of plan for the day.  After some deliberation we decided we are going to the dam at Veldbrand's neighbour.

Ek en my laaitie



This innocent looking rut nearly bucked both of us off the bike.  Time to redo that rear shock methinks...

Despite the rest of the track being excellently repaired this section is still in the same condition as January this year.









Saw some Oryx along the way







KTM Kev met up with his wife in Ashton.

Thanx to Veldtie en Veldblom for a really lekker weekend.  Good to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones.  

I look forward to seeing the rest of the fathers & sons' contributions.  Fire away...

Life is like hitch hiking, just when you think you're not going to get a lift, you don't.

And a last few.

To those who made the trip, thanks guys it was a lekker chilled weekend and really cool to see you guys sharing your hobby/sport with the laaities. Debi also said afterwards that your wives can be seriously proud of having such awesome dads for their kids. Well done. :thumleft:
