the wind was bad, specially for the lighter bikes and ladies....at times it would push you right out of your line onto the middlemannetjie or the sand on the side....on tar it was even worse....it seems that we have loads of windy conditions with every ladies bash. will post mine tonight..enjoy Tankgirls video...that bokkie sure can ride!

Pink Duck and I left on Friday avie for Memel from Joburg. Poplap had an illegal strike at her factory, and Go Girl had to go see Nr1...so we decided to take tar to Memel...

Met up with melior and GSjane at memel hotel: a mother daughter team, with a 1200gs and an 800gs in tow.
Later that night Skinny and miss Harley arrived with bikes on a trailer...it was late....we left them in the bar with very happy farmers.


Early Saturday morning Tankgirl raced through in that cold from Heidelberg and joined our ride to Normandiens pass....we did Collins pass, Bothas pass, as well as normandiens....Collins was a happy accident as we were going to visit Ncuncu falls, but tankgirl overshot and disappeared down the pass, so we followed her


Normandiens was in good nick....some nasty bits but nothing too bad...always well worth it....when we got to the top though, there was a howling gale and it was most unpleasant.

we left in a hurry and did the dreadfull rocky road down to Verkykerskop where we would meet the rest of the ladies..


Misty , firecracker and Rene, with their mom and little Zina went sadly straight to memel and missed lunch...misty has the new triumph and the road is a bit dicey on such a heavy bike..we missed you guys!

Cave girl (on a 250!) and pebbles arrived a bit later, and we also met up with Melior, GS jane, and Skinny with Miss Harley on Vonkie...another 250...

lunch was fresh bread, hits from the eighties, calleloni, soup, chicken wings, amazing lamb curry, rice and the best malva pudding with custard ever.... and the beer was cold...what an amazing place to kuier...the kaggel fire was blazing!!

the group split up again and little groups made their way to the hotel on different routes....it was getting colder.
at memel hotel we started kuiering around a fire outside...that is where we stayed the whole night, with farmers popping in to look at the lady bikers, talk some nonsense and leave again....



the party went on late...I believe skinny slept on a couch somewhere...but that's another story.... :imaposer:




the beds were warm, the drinks were cold, the food was plentiful, and our host was gracious..... we had breakfast early the morning....and dragged ourselves on our bikes...and went off, again in different groups....we decided to do dirt...via perdekop, which then went via another place, to Standerton...after some lovely cuppachinos, we split up...tankgirl went via Val, I went via the dirt to Villiers, and cave girl and pebbles on tar ,and the trailering duos on tar also...

it was a wonderful time...a bit short...but we spoke about next year....and I believe, it will be coastal....yay....another lekker bash...thanks ladies!

thanks to everyone for making this a great weekend :)
enjoyed the riding and interesting company tremendously!

sorry i didn't take photos, however some gopro-related lessons were learned:
(1) tilt camera more upwards! (2) stand in even mildly bumpy terrain!

looking forward to the next one again!
although if it's going to be 'coastal' can we please go in the summer? :D
