Thanks to all for arranging a frighteningly lekker bash!

We rode a bunch of passes and through Lesotho! Dodo, Myself and Bender decided to go via Himeville after the bash over Sani and only reached the Sani borderpost at 5 to 6 after clearing up some trouble with Dodo's clutch in Matatielle. Ended up going over Sani in the dark! record time of 20 minutes up the pass to reach the Lesotho bordder post! Spent the next day riding an epic trip through Lesotho from east to west! 350 k's that took 11 hours! saw Katse and rode the sweeping tar pass down to Ficksburg. Had to sleep in Ficksburg and only returned home today!
Pics and maybe a video or 2 to follow!
We are blessed to share the biking fraternity together!
Do it now - tomorrow you are dead!
Real friends value loyalty regardless!

Venue was awesome.

Only a few dogs played on the vast field available though. Pity only a few dogs doesn't know when to stop.... :pot:

Not talking partying here. That went full blast! :biggrin:

"Hou my dop and check die move..." didn't happen much. :patch: Farking responsible Wild Dogs! >:( :biggrin:
Praat jy dalk van my hier?
Indien wel, ga kak! Ten minste het ek nie geval nie, en getry drag. :3some: 8)

Het jy al jou bike se "oelie" gecheck.
Grapgat.

Heel moontlik, maar jy het nog nie my vraag geantwoord oor wie nie einde het nie met die barrel ry?
Praat of bly vir ewig stil!
PS: Ek soek bank besonderhede vir my hemp, of is dit op die huis omdat jy my so baie kak gehap het? :peepwall: >:D :mwink:

As jou bike op die trailer was, sou jy dalk gewen het.

Sal die bank details stuur. Is nou R 500 saam met rente.

That is myself and Popipants on the Blikna river bridge and also the two of us way below in the pic with a guy (forgotten the name after the heavy weekend) who stopped next to us and promplty dropped the bike after putting his foot down in a hole, we had just helped him to pick up his bike in the pic...
