Ja, Travis the Maccie, what a thoroughly pleasant guy!! And funny too.

@Da Peeg, yes, lots of brand bashing, but in the end it is all BIKES!!

Thanks everyone for a great weekend. 

To Veldblom


and Veldbrand


and their friendly, hardworking and courteous staff thank you so much.  As Veldblom said, "It all comes down to the planning." And that's certainly true here.  Every aspect was well planned and faultlessly delivered.  Hooray!  Fantastic effort.

Thanks, Jup, you old curmudgeon!  You did a great job!  It's those few individuals like you who make the magic happen.



We had a marathon ride up via some "dotted lines" in the Tanqua/Moordenaars Karoo.  It must surely be a kind of a record for punctures-to-kilos-ridden ratio.

The ride home was almost uneventful so I thought I show some different water crossing techniques.














and then of course, there 2SD, who performed a slow race across the puddle!





Thanks to Andy660 and the guys. And to Helderberg Yamaha for coming to the party.  Awesome!

I arrived at home at 15h25 this afternoon after dropping Sweisie off in Alberton. We were two up from Gariep Dam this morning.
The Freestate was COLD today.

My clock indicated 2833 km traveled for the weekend.

Pity the XT-600 were about 750 km short of that total.  But we will fix the head gasket and try again.
Will also add some pictures of our trip via Groenfontein and over Swartberg to Prins Albert later.

I WOULD RATHER BE AN HONEST ASSHOLE .... THAN A FLIPPEN LIAR !   


Ducati 100cc Mountaineer, Honda 550 K3, Suzuki Gs1000E, Suzuki Gs1000G, Suzuki 1100 Katana, BMW R1100RT, BMW R1150RT,,,,,All gone. Only 2014 ST in the garage at the moment... And Honda XL 600

Spyt my dinge het nie uitgewerk dat ek darem net kon kom hallo se nie.

Ek het darem twee bikes op die pad gekry tussen Ladismith en Calitzdorp Sondag. 'n Blou Superten met twee op en later 'n 660 Ten ek dink ook met twee op. Ek was die dik ou op die Harley wat gegroet het. :snorting: Hoop nie ek het julle laat skrik nie. :D

Ook vir Freak en Dappermuis raakgeloop by Ronnies. Goed om te ontmoet. :thumleft:

Was aangenaam om al die Yamaha manne te ontmoet so van agter die bar af, dit was inderdaad 'n lekker naweek!

Aan die Arende: julle sal moet weer kom vir daai Paardebond pad, hy draai weg kort voor jy begin klim teen die Rooibergpas uit, dis nie daai hek daar bo nie, daardie is 'n Natuurbewaringpad sover ek weet.  Regtig een van daai "moet ry" paaie!

Ek het gedag Jakkals was gesuie toe hy my die pad verduidelik het.   :patch:  Sal moet 'n draai maak, ek het daai pad al 'n paar keer gesien op die manne se RR's en wil hom nog altyd gery het.

Korreksie, But Sweisie will fix the head gasket and try again.  :deal:  Pa Woody sal dalk nie die goete so lekker verstaan nie.  :imaposer: :imaposer:

Bly julle is veilig by die huis Woody, Sweisie kon seker nie gewag het om sy helmet af te haal na jy om die draai was nie, die arme man was te skaam om op 'n wit S10 gesien te wees dat nerens sy helmet wou af haal nie,,,,,,,,,,,, so hoor ek maar.  :peepwall:

I cant ad much more to all the thank you's except my own. Thank you Veldbrand, Veldblom and Jup, the powers that made a weekend a unforgettable one. It will be with me to the end.  :thumleft:

Long live the XT bashes at Koedoes kloof close to umtete mountain.   :)



I just want to also thank Pistonpete from Outriders for being there in his capacity as a vendor. He saved my weekend from ending even before it started. I had two blow-outs on the back wheel. Didn't have a spare tube(I know not good but had plenty patches)

Had to call my wife to collect me and load bike on the back. Phoned Pete and he had tubes, tyres ext.  So of to the XT bash bike on the back, got there just after 9pm Friday. Fixed tyre next morning and had a great out ride with the XT's.

Pete if you didn't go through all the trouble to be a vendor at the bash I would have had a miserable weekend. Thank you Outriders.  :3some:
