After we all enjoyed some of the finest ribs & steak that ONLY Gerrit & Chantell can produce....we headed back out towards Ceres. Andy showed us another cool camping spot a little further up the road & I just had to stop for a few photos of my Scooter next to this really Cool Stone Barn.

Last few photos I have.....is of the last few of us re-grouping @ the intersection where the gravel road ends (foot of Katbakkies Pass).

I have to say, that our Scooter were quite a bit cleaner than what I thought they would be.

Hey Buddy, glad you could make the ride. Was Gr8 to do a ride together again. Been a while. Hey what's this nonsence of an Old Toppie....the way you ride....IMHO, you are still very young. ;)  :ricky: :ricky:

Looking forward to seeing your photos.  ;) :thumleft:

Thanks for organising a brilliant ride Andy and Gavin, I don't think we could have asked for better riding conditions. See you all on the next one. Some pics attached
