Dis hoekom ons gesê het dit sal bietjie 'n anderste RR wees. Klomp dinge wat moes gebeur om een lekker storie te maak en almal wat saamwerk om by te dra. My eie trip het soos gewoonlik heeltemal anders verloop as wat ek beplan het. Al deel van die aanvanklike plan wat gewerk het, was dat ek inderdaad met die bike by die huis uitgekom het.

Daar was soveel onderbrekings, en side-steps, en dis wat mens die trip laat onthou.

Jup ek dink ek moes die heel lekkerste voel dat jy by tuis veilig gekom het. Ek was so bietjie bekommerd dat warren sy sleepwa moet uithaal en vir jou kom tuis bring!  Nou wag ek vir die verhaal. En ja soos jy gesê het dit het nie gebeur sonder die hulp van baaie mense. Maar my boude is nog so bietjie seer van tenie se plank bank!

Nooit, daai bike is Yster, nie gehoes of geproes nie, heelpad rustig so teen 80km/h. Ek het nooit getwyfel hy sal jou in die Kaap en my by die huis kry nie.

Let me get started then. Usually at the end of a write-up one says your thank-you's, but then everyone has had enough of reading and don't pay attention.

Let me do so now. It's the interuptions that make the journey. I love being alone on my bike, but also enjoy meeting and kuiering along the way. As the ZEN bike is down for now, I dought I'll do my Social Tour early next year, so I used this one instead to say hello to whoever I could. To everyone who received me along the way and those who made an effort to find me and say hello, I say thanks. Each and every meeting was a good one.

A big one goes to Goose(who sorted the bike for me) and him and Jenni for putting us up for the night at their 'little place' and a great party. Also much appreciated was the Dogs who were invited for the kuier.

And of course to Jim, who accepted my invitation to use the bike, got it, and himself, to CT safely and gave me the excuse to ride it back, for what was a super trip.

As on my trips before, this showed why I enjoy being a Wilddog. Thanks all.

You will note I did not thank Bie and Kwaatjie for their special effort in putting me up last night. You see, this is not by choice... you get forced... if you're there, you will stay there. To refuse will not be good.  >:D  Thanks julle, dit was 'n lekker aand en heel gepas om die trip mee afte gesluit het.  :biggrin:

Now I'll see you on the road.

                                                          Day 1 – Saturday 15 December 2012

I love helmet noise… you too will appreciate it if you spend twelve hours in a car with four girls, chattering, laughing, giggling, headphones blaring and arguing every now and again, especially as we got to the end of the day, we were all tired and the space was getting small. And on top of this I hate driving in a car.

But I endured it, as I knew at the end of the drive my bike is waiting for me and three days of absolute bliss it would be… and what a trip it was.

I said I wanted to leave by five, and had them in the car by ten past. Not bad.



We made a quick stop in Jeffreys to drop off a part that Jim had brought over for Skipskop. Past Humansdorp I was already bored and started taking pics as we drive. Quite weird to drive looking through the camera lens



As a kid I used to love it when we went on trips and would stop at a road side picnic spot for a bite. I had asked Lyn to pack us a basket and we stopped at Storms for as brekkie. The Real McCoy… boiled eggs, apricot jam sandwiches and of course coffee.



I go for a walk on the bridge.



This would become the pattern for the day. Whenever we had a stop I would get myself to one side for a bit of me time away from the noise, and thus composed I can make it through the next hour.

The journey continues, Knysna,


Sedgefield



Wildernis




and up and over Kaymans pass.





Then into to George, which concluded the first part of our journey, where we had to pick up the key for the flat where Lyn and the girls would stay in Cape Town.



Now we could get over the mountain to my beloved Karoo, and a way from this dreary foggy coastalness.

Up and over Outeniqua Pass




Oudtshoorn. This is and will always be my most favourite town. I had the opportunity to move and live there many years ago, but Lyn would have nothing of it. Today I regret that I did not force her, and she regrets her reluctance. But that’s how it rolls. So many things could have been different. I might not have been writing this report.





Approaching Calitzdorp




Huisrivierpas




The sunlight on the mountains towards Seweweekspoort made a nice pic



Zoar



Then its on to Veltie for lunch. At this stage I think I must be one of his most frequent visitors. I love their place and it has become one of my SERENITY spots.

And that Hammie which is not a rumour. If its the only reason you take a drive thre its a good enough one. After a couple of cold ones we are on our way again.

As usual my timing is going for a bolly and I still had to meet Wes before we got to Goose.

The girls wanted to stop at Ronnies Sex Shop as they've heard about it. BIG dissappointment  :imaposer: but it has become a bit over rated. I have however left my mark there on a previous trip

By the time we get to Montagu I'm drowsy so we stop for coffee. Its now stinking hot and getting a bit late in the day. I've not been through Du Toit's Kloof tunnel for years and don't like it. Give me open space.

Wes gave me his address but the GPS won't find it. I phone and he explains and then I remember. Eventually the GPS picks it up and when we arrive it agrees with me that we at the right place.

I was hoping to get here earlier so we could kuier a bit. He got some parts for our retro bikes and I had come to pick mine up. As it turned out it was just a short hello and chat. Unfortunately he could also not make it to Goose's place that evening.

I love his style with that 650, but he's going to see his gat one day. He's not there when we arrive. Shortly I hear the Kawa come roaring on. He rips down the street, hooks a 90 degree back  brake turn and rolls into the drive-way, stops, dismounts, on the sidestand and bike off... all in one uninterrupted movement.

He's so smootth I don't think he has wrinkels on his balls  :imaposer:

Thanks bud for the trouble. Was nice seeing and chatting again, and meeting your family. Pity I missed doing a day on your trip with you.

The GPS takes us on a scenic drive to Goose's house. Nice little place he's got there  :biggrin:

After the hello's I go to see to the bike. Always look after the horse first. There's some hard work lying ahead. Goose had seen to some things during the week, like have a new tyre fitted, and patched up a thing or two. All looked good. Still had all the oil leaks in the same places and dripping the same amounts it seemed. Jim took care of it well. I was happy that we looked ready to go. ( as the ride went I picked up a thing or two, but we'll get to that)
