Lady - Noob RR.New Friends--Old Friends-- Just a Ride.
« on: October 04, 2009, 08:55:33 pm »
Something about getting together with a couple of Old friends and meeting some new one's on a ride. One knows what to expect from the old and more often than not you are pleasantly surprised to have a great day together.

Posted a Lady and Newbie ride for Sunday. It RAINED Saturday night and when the sms's started coming through---- Emergency work---sorry can't make it. Bike wont start. Fell out of the bed this morning and twisted my ankle etc etc came through i thought---Well seems like i may be able to get back into bed and just chill the rest of the day :mwink:

NO Luck Splash arrived at ny gate telling me that some people were already waiting at the meeting point  ???

Sometimes i think --sorry --i know the ladies are 100% troopers. Malibu-Dakota- Magic63-Misty- and Puddles were waiting :o

Hoofseun, Kykdaar and then some new faces joined in as well--excuse me for not getting your names first time--But ask everyone -- the more you ride with me --the easier it gets for me to remember all your names. Must be this age thing ???

All in all we were 14 riders who ended up who were brave enough to ride in what looked to be some wet and muddy roads out there.

Catchy had helped me mark out the route Saturday the one Malibu would take the manne who were brave enough to tackle the railway tracks on Sunday.
I in turn took the rest out on some casual roads that turned out to be Dust Free and just the right ammount of traction as well.
We all would meet up at farm house where the farmer and his family lay out a spread for us--something different for a change.
As far as the stories go--i will rather keep quite as from the operation one of the riders had recently--something about having a ingrown pubic hair removed--or was it a half Brazillian :o To someone looking for a wife --i lost track along the way.
Thank's Malibu for leading the second group and Splash helping as allways. For Kykdaar the swept and nearly overslept. To all who joined in and Made the Ride.
Ps. Malibu--checked the route you took--not the same section i had laid out in the forrest--were you LOST or just leading the boy' arround the Bush :peepwall:

Some pics of my group. The others can post if they took some.

Till next time our tracks cross. ;)

On the Road.











Our Lunch Stop.







One Last Stop to say Bye--Till we ride together again.

Pleasure. Note---Rather stay a noob like me ;) more fun--you do not have to perform or proove anything--Just enjoy riding is the only requirement.
Yes the venue was something different for a change seeing that we were the only guests--Planned that way and worked well. Eiiiish that peri peri sauce had me doing hand stands in the shower last night  ::)

As far as loosing bolts  ??? We need to introduce you to Locktite  :mwink:

What an AWESOME ride  :thumleft:  ... I had a absolute ball yesterday  :3some:.  Any of you that were scared off by the rain .... oh hum ... you missed out BIG time.

PERFECT weather for riding, great company & the lunch stop was just what we needed - some country, farm life - much better than the "commercial" type of stops.  I'll recommend that for sure.

Thanx Blazes for taking the time to take out the noobs & ladies ... your rides are super duper great fun.  I will DEFINITELY be back for more  :biggrin:

Thanx to Malgat for playing sweeper ... luckily you didn't have much dust to chomp back there.

Then to all the other riders - it was great meeting you & riding with you.  Look forward to the next one.

Mmmm ... so Blazes ... the next one is .... ??

Alarm never went off and I had only 30 minutes to get organised and get to the meeting venue :o

Only when I got back did I notice that I had my shirt on inside-out. My riding companions was probably too polite to point it out to me ;D

Turned out a really nice day for riding with no dust. Roads drained well from the rain the night before and we even encountered a number of sandy patches along the way.

Great peri-peri chicken / porkchops was enjoyed in a relaxed farm atmosphere - so much better than a restuarant in town :thumleft:

Thanks to everyone that came along for the ride - was a great day out.

Then as i glanced over at you while passing--i Saw--you were standing  :peepwall:

Glad to here all had fun. I hope everyone realises the time and trouble that Blaze put into marking out the route as well as painting all the potential hazards and turns, I also hope someone bought him a beer or two for his troubles.

Blazes, thanks again for the ride on Saturday. I need to get out to the Waterberg with you sometime soon!  :thumleft:
