A Green one, a Black one and an inbetweener
« on: November 19, 2007, 02:21:08 pm »
At Friday nights drinks session, I asked Grim if he wanted to come ride de Wildt with me and D7. I was feeling rathercrappy after alate night and only confirmed with him late on Saturday. All was arranged and we met at the garage at the turn off to Brits at 6:30 Sunday morning. I didn't take many pics, but here's a few.

Having a last smoke break at the police station before we went in. The Black one, the one that can't decide whether it should be black or green and the Green one



D7 coming down the hill from the water tower





We went staight into the area going along the pipeline, then turned around to follow a twsty route through the bush. Low hanging branches caused some problems for me and I got whacked quite hard on the head by a few. We then found a shabeen for the usual afkoel biertjie. The owner was NOT pleased when I took photies.





We were running low on time and headed back, but D7 had other plans. He took us along a single track section that headed into the mountains. We soon realized that even a plastic bike will have diffyculty here when we overheard someone at the top of the hill saying: Let's walk them down!!

Another smoke break and some green stuff to eat





I really like Grim's new scoot.



We turned around and went over the hill by the water tower again. I was a bit slow on the camera, so I only caught Grim as he came up



We stopped for a few more beers somewhere along the canals and hit the road home. I'm very impressed with the D606's. I did some lekker fast sweeps and they gripped very well. Where's that chicken strips fred?

Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Thanks for an awesome ride guys, this chunk of earth has got to be one of the greatest playgrounds.

After realising at 22:00 (After the movie) that I was heading into prime puncture country and none of the DR's tools would remove the XTs wheels, there was a frantic welding and grinding session to get the basics done to ensure a puncture free ride, the off to bed at about midnight... a quick blink later and I found myself riding the straight line path between my house and the meeting point, unfortunately the character who set out the 94.7 seems to have done the same, luckily all it took was a grin and some quick talking and I was through, what a pleasure to ride with no cars around...

One of the biggest surprises was while we were sitting chilling at a shebeen next to the canals, and we saw someone in training to berak the 220-on-dirt-my-china record... yep, a genuine hayabusa came trundling round the corner, and not too slowly either (well maybe it was for a 1300 superbike), definate respect to that guy....

Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.
