No takers for the early moring laps in the pool close by.

A few chilly Cape Town XT fans gathered at Villiersdorp .....

(No tractor viewing was allowed ...  :'( )

We then made our way via Greyton, Riviersonderend, Bonnievale and on to lunch at Montagu.

From Montagu, we sped up Oubergpas and on to the Koedoeskloof at Ladismith.

At the K'Kloof, a tent farm was rising from the terraces .....

This was of course to be a tribute to the 30 year anniversary of the XT 600 Tenere ....

Is that a Kawa in the background ?

On Saturday-morning, after a splendid breakfast, little groups went on spins around the area .... with Seweweekspoort being a favorite ....

We allways had Towerkop in the background to show us the way back if we got lost ...

As you can see, by this time the old 600's were losing numberplates, side covers, oil and various other bits and pieces ...

O, was it mentioned there was plenty of ice available for the drinks.

There was even ice on the tents on Saturday morning !!!

So there were two topics of conversation, but both referring to the temp,
 "Yis maar dis f@k^n koud" and "XT's is cool" ...... :imaposer:
