Big thanks to Yamaha for opening their doors and showing us around, it was followed by 30 min of oooh's and aaahhh's as I saw all the bikes and gear I would'nt mind in my garage

I am not sure what was wrong with the coffee machine but i sure hope it is working next time we meet there 

Thanks and massive shout out to Andy660 for organising such an epic ride again as usual. The day was lekker fast, the tracks were dusty, air was hot but there were enough watering holes along the way to keep us all hydrated and happy.

Great to see some old and familiar faces and to meet some new ones, thanks to the KTM okes in the front for a regular roosting  :laughing4:

All I had to do is clear that corner and one more, then I could see the road went fast and straight into the distance, I could see the dust clouds from the front runners so I had a good idea of what to expect.. instead I turned the corner and saw this

I will leave you with the view from our lunch tables.

No pics on the way back, I flat tapped it home, blowing a tank of petrol from Elands bay to Melkbos in an hour and a half, pulled into the driveway at 4pm after a long 2 days riding having done the Cape Endurance Rally the day before.

thanks again Andy.. lekker ride  :thumleft:
