Wife's first ride, Wife's first off
« on: August 09, 2010, 09:26:46 pm »
I was nagged this morning to go for a short ride for a breakfast at Skilpadvlei. It was %$rkinG raining but i had no choice was outnumbered by the missus. ???

Nice and carefull trip in the rain only to wipe out after breakfast on our way out of the farm. Luckily at very slow speed maybe 80 bossies per hour at walk speed. Just to carefull and to hard on front brake. Wheel slipped, Wife down and mirror, high screen and 2 grommits broken. :-\

Very happy as she got up and got on again and of she went. I was very scared that this would be the first and the last. Went out twice later with Coenie for a trip or two around our neighberhood. :thumleft:

I think she will be fine for feture riding.

Good thing she got on the bike again. The first off is the worst one mentally.

Ons gaan eet gereeld daar. Lekker kos pragtige omgewing en 'n goeie verskoning om met die scoot te gaan.

Seker 7 kilo's van my huis af.

Hoop In Touch te kom eendag :laughing4:
