Sand Ride 19/01 Guateng.
« on: January 21, 2008, 11:54:09 am »
Thank's Toothpick and her Hubby,Tinus for setting up the ride for us and being such great hosts. The weather was great and the sand was super rideable. If you had the right tyres on ? As i arrived late due to a Technical Problem and a cop trying to stop me on the tar( was he insane to try and catch me on my XR.) ? As the ride was taken care of by Tinus and some sand training given by Toothpick i could take time off and just have some fun for a change. The WD's who braved the elements were: Toothpick, Tinus, Malgat, Adventure Boy, Slainche with his Black Mamaba, Aquatic, Hastalavista,a friend of Aquatic's Andre new to DS riding. and for those i have forgotten excuse me. I do suffer sometimes from memory loss?
Here are a few pics of me and the gang. The rest will be posted by Toothpick. By the way Andre the newbie on his way home dived through the BIG puddle we were all riding through, The one Malgat got me back in after i had splashed him wet, and lost all his XT 660 plastics  :o :o

Looks like a lekker playground, and your sand seems wet..... Here it is dry as a bone and loose like beach sand!!
Silence is golden...... Duct tape is silver

Everything works with smoke, if the smoke escapes, it stops working.

Hi Andy 950 Yep i saw you all had dry conditions. We were hoping for that here but lately we have been having so much rain the mud-monster is lurking arround every bend seeing who he can devour. Will  have to wait for dust and dry roads come winter. Then your rain starts. Well i allways say ride in all conditions and enjoy it while we can, Life is tooooo short for bad coffee.

Thanks to all who made it possible. Awesome day!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to Blazes for the spin on your XR - yip still smiling!!!
Great to have met some new folks, and to see some old faces!

I managed to do 2 land grabs at the circle sand pit.

Andre is a bit disapointed with the broken plastics, but I think he will more glad that no one but me saw him make his name tottie through the splash.
Anyone know where he can get plastic welding done?
The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!

Nice one !!

Pitty that I haven't been able to join you for the last couple of weeks  :(

Work has chewed my time over the last couple of weeks - with extra work in the office and trips to Tazania that just don't suit my leisure activities.  Plus with the bike down at the moment - I'm not a "happy camper"  !!

I'll be up and going again soon and will look forward to joining you again.



There's always three sides to a story and only one of them is the absolute truth !

Thank's Toothpick. And once again congrats with your daughter Julia's Birthday. One day she will make some guy's envious the way she rides a bike.
