Kymco's Adventure Thumper to KZN Bash
« on: March 25, 2013, 10:44:28 am »
So after much deliberating it was decided I will use the wife's scoot instead of my Bitch to the bash and thus found that Kymco does have a 500 cc adventure bike !!!

We left Toti early on Friday morning, bakkie packed to the max with kayaks, fridge for the lapa and all other gear supposedly needed by the wife and kids  ;D

Also kids bikes was on the trailer - pity laaitie has not done his learners yet, otherwise he would be riding with me.

Had lekker ride down to the Bash, the Kymco got tested on the way there with a few gravel sections on the R624 and then it was down the Hella Hella pass - interesting with no engine braking and just hanging onto the brake levers.

All and all the scooter did well, enjoyed the ride there and back and even managed some "adventure" cruising around in Highover and down to the river.

The bash was awesome !!!!

Great to meet all the people and had a excellent time - Draadkar kept us entertained all the way  :thumleft:

Butch - pity you had to leave us on Sat

Once again thanks a mil Esbee for the great organizing and also all the ladies for the great food !!!

To all the other guys and gals - not going to name all just now I forget someone  ;D was really good meeting you all  :thumleft:

And the off course some pics..............

1 - ready to leave
2 - gravel on R624
3 - campsite
4 - Bridge over Mkomazi
5 - Breakfast Sat morn
Cash, Gas or Ass............ no-one rides for free :-)

I did it because I can, I can because I want to and I want to because you said that I couldn't !!!!!!!

En dit was "light packing - only essentials" volgens die vrou  :imaposer:

Maar hele gesin het dit baie geniet.

Nooit eers kayaks gebruik nie, die rapids het bietjie erg gelyk - siende ons net flat water experience het. - Darem het hulle n lekke dak gevorm op die bakkie vir laaitie wat agterop gele het soontoe en terug

Lekker RR  :thumleft:
Was goed om julle te ontmoet Badballie. Jammer ek was so stil. Is nie veel van geselskap nie.
Die finansies laat dit nie toe nie maar ek sal graag n scooter ook wil he alhoewel darem nie so n grote nie

Weet wat jy bedoel met die vrou se idee van "light packing" . Ek was amper embarrassed met my eie groot pakkasie  :eek7:

Toemaar ek dink daar was van daai GS's wat meer opgehad het as my bakkie en trailer, ek sal nie name noem nie .........so jy is veilig Draadkar  :imaposer:

Ja well, Subie ek probeer die vrou oortuig dat die scooter moet plek maak vir n 650 (something) Dual sport, maar sover kry ek net n klap teen die kop en sy se nee ruil Busa !  :imaposer:
