I'm still busy going through the footage from my helmet camera & extracting quite a few photos, which I'll also post as soon as it's done ;) :thumleft:

Note to self:.....Next time get out ahead a bit more to find a nice spot on some of the corners to capture all the "Sideways Action" of the Front Runners >:D ;D ;D :ricky: ;D ;D Plenty of "Roost Marks" around a hell of a lot of the corners.....I tell you :pot: :lol8: :lol8:

OK then....finally got around to going through the footage from my Helmet Camera & have got close on 300 photos of the day's ride.....starting back @ Helderberg Yamaha (P/Eiland) & ending where myself & "Vlam" parted ways on our way back home.

Sorry about the really CRAP quality of the shots.....but I never had the damn thing set on the settings I normally do.....but still managed to get a few OK shots. Hope you all enjoy. ;) I always try to get as many shots of everyone, somewhere along the route. :ricky:

"3BlindMonkeys" & Fuzzy Muzzy" again, as they pass me. Then on towards the Total Garage we rode till we met up again with everyone else.

Last photo is FM pushing the "Keyless 660" aside & sadly leaves us for the day. Pity about that Buddy. ;) ;D

Last few photos for tonight. Will carry on posting the rest tomorrow during the day.

Everyone re-grouping again.....before we made our way up & over Nieuwoudts Pass. BTW....I cannot remember your name of the rider on that Black 660....but I just want to say sorry for ALMOST riding right over your fallen glasses that were lying in the road...... Eish....that was close :ricky: ;D ;D

Note how the man is running back to get to them before anyone else rides over them.

Heading off again towards Uitkyk Pass. I really do love seeing signs like the one that shows the road up ahead is changing to "Gravel" ;) ;D ;D ;D

Photos taken & time to keep moving on towards "MatjiesRivier". Couple of Snotty sections along the way, from the recent rains....but all in all, very nice roads. ;)
