Girls with Bikes. They had poor DRAZIL all gagga the whole weekend.   :3some:

I got back to Koedoeskloof and found them doing what us bikers love doing... standing around looking at, and talking about their bikes.

Dusty, Nicky, Engela and Mariette( I think that's her name, but they call her Bollie  :biggrin: )


Do you blame me,there is nothing to beat women DS riders :drif:  better looking and more shapely than my riding buddys :lol8:

There's an on and off light drizzle, which makes Veltie pull his beard out, because the stage is open air and we were promised rain. Don't worry Boet, it always works out and it did... splendidly so  :thumleft:

Some time during the afternoon I happen to see this pic. Man, I love this place and can see myself chilling out my old age in one of those workers cottages at back ( I've actually already chosen the one I want  :biggrin: )

The brothers arrive and not long before short they don't waste time and start strumming. These guys love their music and really put their soul into it. They don't perform for you... they play for themselves and jou just happen to be there and have the privilege of enjoying it.

Proof is that they were only booked to start playing at 2030, but the moment they were set up in mid afternoon they got going and only intermittend rain stopped them now and again. They just wanna play

And so a most enjoyable evening played out. LS and Kaboef promised us an earlier night, but not before LS entertained us again with another fit.

The next day we would go our own ways. I had to get all the way to George and it would take very careful planning to make that take the whole day. But, I'm a good planner and I eventually arrive at my daughter's flat in George at half past six, after another supercool day of riding.

I'm now cross-eyed from all the writing, so I'll tell you about it tomorrow.  :thumleft:

TO BE CONTINUED...

Loving your RR  :thumleft:

It was the first time the four of us rode together and I can't think of a better venue or event to have attended.  We had so much fun   ;D     Thank you Jupiter for your patience answering many newbie questions and helping with loading luggage etc........a true gentleman  :thumleft:

Watching LS and Kaboef laugh had me in stitches and I didn't even know what the joke was   :imaposer:
