I made it very clear that I ride the HP at 50% of its capability but that I enjoy it 100%.  :biggrin: :biggrin:
For now "riding god" in these twisty mountain roads with ruts and bends and “lae water bruggies” that force you just to exit it with some air time.  I don’t know what it looked like but it felt GOOD


Nimmo, riding behind you (where I managed to keep up) was one of the highlights of my weekend. You are without a doubt one of the most stylish riders that I have ever had the privilege of watching. Smaak my ek gaan ook een van SGB se kursusse moet bywoon.....  :ricky:

Great RR, dankie. Was great om jou (en jou pragstuk) te ontmoet. Sien uit na nog rides en kuiers.  :thumleft:

Likewise, great to meet you. Thanks for the chat.

Nice report.
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Nice RR thanks. It was nice to reminisce about last year.
Was there too and had a great time.
