These are just pics from the cutting room floor... I did not take most of them, but I will try to give context.

Standing around sizing each other up on the pan... :pot:
Look at Mambat scheming: "these chops shall see a show"




The stallions in the stable:



Jondu's donkiekar front and center:

We love the "sand" colour scheme on the GSA, gives it a nice "shitkicker" look


A few places in the world where the sky is this big!


At this point you actually realise there is a drag going on... ;D

And the winner is......... A KTM 990 with a pillion??? :imaposer:


Harry potter (justcallmephil) on a practice run, trying to mimick Mambat...





attgat is clearly optional on the pan...



Mambat, I think...







Panstofvreetiaglete. A dish only served on verneekpan...











Lekker photo this one:


Jondu, WKC & Bliknęrs at the bell... A sad sight for me, as I never got to see it, nevermind have a pic with it. Jondu wanted to lift me to get one taken, but I declined and said that I will take one when I return with my KLR.



Don't know who's bike this is, but you've got evidence now...




One last one... It was in preperation for the trip. Jondu & WKC rode on the farm, and you can see, it is all sand. This was when mrs. Jondu allegedly pulled in her knee too fast and threw Jondu off balance placing her neatly under the GSA. The arseholes took their time with pics befor helping her... Now everyone has seen the whole family... (that farm is nice training grounds, chat to Jondu...



Thats all folks, I think WKC has some vids of Mambat etc. But in due time....

Thank you for reading!

What's this about "I did not take most of them"?? You didn't take ANY of them  :deal: :patch:

I came online now to see what sort of RR I can squeeze out of the pics we have left but someone beat me to them :P Anyways, just keep in mind that mrs Jondu was in no pain and said it's fine for photos first!  :thumleft:
It's not the destination that is of importance, it is the trip.

Ohh and yes training grounds are aplenty on the farm!! Maybe a Weskus run of some sorts would be in order  :ricky:

A bitter sweet story .... of a playground offering so much ... designed to "give it horns" ... a few spills but with a happy recovery ending ..... good camaraderie - Have to admit that KTM sounds the part.

Nice report  :thumleft:
