Thanks for a really lekker kuier Zar & crew.... as usual, you did a superb job in organizing! :thumleft:
Upon arrival, we were shoved a nice cold beer in our hands, and the party started. Wonderful comeraderie and new friends made.... My liver is so big it's going to school on monday! :lol8:.Many of the stories have been told, so I won't elaborate... other than to say I had to do some work on SPROCKET's KLR... Couldn't believe that that bike could still go!
A few of my foties.....

But it's ok... they know me there!

Roxenz's wineglass intrigued me, because he now seems to have gone over to re-cycling PLASTIC, instead of glass!.... even his Wynbottel was plastic! :laughing4:
His cigars were real though!... woke up next morning with a good cough! :lol8:

To Ettiene, Adele, Andre, Marissa and all the other good people who organised this Bash: huge thanks! You guys are legend!

I had so much fun, I did not take a single photo.  But in spite of the alcoholic fug, I have some brilliant memories.

The NW Bash is special, it really feels like a family gathering, mens voel sommer so half weemoedig as jy afskeid neem op Sondagoggend. Dankie aan al die honde en hondinne wat mens so lekker laat lag.

From now on it should be called the "NW Kuier Bash"!

PS. ZAR thanks for the prize - it got home safe and sound!

Wow - what a great bash. Superoo, Tommy Transalp and myself arrived mid Friday afternoon set up camp and started the weekend's drinking, though not necessarily in that order.
Met up with old friends and made new ones.
Saturday we joined Old No.7 on an epic ride to Die Oog and to his friends place where we enjoyed a few beers - thanks so much for organising that - really went down well. Lunch was spent at Die Wag n Bietjie kuierplek in Groot Marico and then back to the bash camp. That evening was spent kuiering lekker with all the dogs and then the highlight of the evening for me was to be given a wonderful wild dog shirt for my birthday!!. Thanks very much to everyone for sharing my birthday with me - I had a wonderful day.
Lastly but not least, a huge thank you to ZAR for organising an epic bash. IT WAS GREAT. Can't wait for the next one.
Pics to follow.

Kan ek maar se hoekom jy daai prys gekry het?    :pot:   Omdat hy 2 manne gehelp pomp het die Saterdag oggend, aag ek bedoel hulle bikes se bande gehelp pomp het.     :peepwall:

Ja ouens, dit was wraggies 'n lekker naweek en met geen ernstige insidente nie.

Moet se die Honne is tops en dit is 'n eer en voorreg om deel van die Wilddogs te wees.......  behalwe dalk vir Slakkie en KilRoy en Tommy en...............  Grap net, wat 'n crowd om  deel van te kan wees.   :salut:
