  • WAT KYK JY
For you guys expecting Grizz & Dozer in George tonight .....  :peepwall:

As hulle die volle kusroete doen, en die pont by Malgas insluit, reken ek hulle sal meskien teen so 2100 vanaand op George wees.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

…, I wish I could own them all, and until I can afford to own them all at once, I will own them one at a time...

Ok chaps - I'm back in Cape Town with a moerse sore ass!! That XT is a lekker bike but jinne jong....... :pot:

Arrived at the SHELL garage to meet the boys - nada.... they not there....




Thought Grizz could relate to the CHEAP petrol price here!


I eventually had a chap arrive on a KLE - nothing to do with the forum - helluva nice bloke (Henk) who lives in Stanford (they do horseriding trails)...... so he kept me company until the two Brothers arrived..........







We managed to get underway as time was running from us and we were now way behind schedule.
To make matters worse - Grizz managed to snap the PTT cable on his setup - too many cable ties and not enough play left.......... so I took mine from my bike and we installed it on his to ensure they have Comms between them for the trip!

Once we got going - the first photo-opportunity was above the Gordon's Bay harbour area.....


once all was dusted, we got back on the bikes and I proceeded to move to the roadside and waited for them. Man - WHY WHEN YOU NEED THE CAMERA is it in the bag!!

Grizz somehow lost his footing and down he went with the bike - 100% sidestand incident........... but apart from losing a few litres of fuel - all was well. (by the way - if anyone has a spare fuel cap for this bike - please assist... it's got a temp-cap on that does not seal..)

Another stop was in order - about 4km's before Rooi Els...........








at this stage there was some splattering excuse for rain.......... I was really chilled at this stage - having ridden to the garage without my liner........ and I still did not have a cuppa to warm the innards.......... so we decided to hoof it to Kleinmond for a brekkie.

Dozer with a moerse grin


Grizz contemplating whether he could perhaps use the "BeadMaster" tyre levers to "harvest" a few Perlemoen   ;)




endless discussions about the bike and kit...........


Grizz's new UVEX helmet he got at a bargain price before leaving the UK for our last trip to France........... note the Wilddog paw!! That was the first order of business - to get the paw on!  :thumleft:


Some of you might have read the trip report we did for the trip in France ............ one of my pet moans was that Grizz is a total blimmen Tech-junkie.......... he's addicted to his "Mobile" .............. and fok me..... his boet joined him............. two peas-in-a-pod!


........... Our waitress helped out with the camera.......... man - was that a welcome meal!


View from the eatery!


Now - while we're sitting there minding our own business .. along comes this .........  not sure if it goes here or buttism....  :peepwall: .. but as it's Grizz's thread - I'll donate to him!




I started chasing the chaps - realising they still had quite a distance to travel, I handed them my maps as well and told them that we'll hussle to Hermanus - where I'd take my leave of them.
The XT550 developed an electrical problem, my ass was sore and I was not about to take a chance that the bike might fail on me!

Ample Bike parking in Hermanus - nogal right by Tourist Info (WELL DONE!)


nice boney............


Really nice to see such old stalwards together.........  :thumleft:


Final "MAL" pics before saying our goodbyes...........

Grizz


Dozer


The Boys


New & old mates ..........


Travle safe chaps - been really lekker riding with you - nice to have met you Deon and looking forward to meeting up again in the near future.

Rian - sterkte boet........... veilig ry en geniet dit. Sien jou sommer gou weer!

Hey goose thanks for the update. That Xr of yours looks lekker and the boys starting to get into the rhythm even if the whale flipped the Grizz.
If your'e going to do something do it with conviction!

Always a pleasure Jim -  :thumleft: it seems like ages since you were last here...!  

By the way - it's the Yamaha XT that - not the Xaar !  8)

I've had no further news from the two of them - hope all's well...  they wanted to reach George by 6pm - but maybe a bit ambitious...?


UPDATE - The boys reached George a short while ago - SAFE!!

Thanks for the update  Goose.

In a few words....

Landed at Kosie's place.

Unpacked bikes etc, fire started, brandy bottle necks broken.....

Two vicious dogs almost eating us up alive.

BBQ in order, tomorrow is 7 passes, and half of Baviaans Kloof.

ONLY ONE PIC TONIGHT ....





OK.... one more....

Just shows that Kosie has a very wise wife in the decorating department.




I will update and upload properly when I have no time now.

woke up at 4am this morning, bike stuff on my mind, decided to read WD trip reports, and 11 brilliant pages later, have a grin on my face; everything from digging the Grizz-Pod, to having lost my own Dad just last year, and needing to distribute his ashes, too, knowing Goose, and how he (and others) helped out on your trip, mentally riding these roads with you, enjoying the fact the boys born in the era of fuel injection (the 21year-old), was helping balance carburetors (world is leaker upside down, ne!), and had a GOOD chuckle at Welsh translating Afrikaans into English, then chirping about it, and then seeing what WELSH language would look like.... frtht, whyth, abewisthwtyh, etc!

Brilliant thread, thanks :thumleft:
