Sure was a very nice trip. It was very nice to meet and spend time with some really cool guys. I am most impressed by the relaxed vibe that was evident from the start go. I was expecting a bit of a snobbish thing, as you sometimes get in these circumstances. Nothing of that. From that big, grumpy old teddy bear, BMWPE, Beagleboy, Crab and all the other EP guys. The WP guys were as nice and a very great honour to meet. Also the guys that I already knew, Rooipoot and the like. Sure was a great pleasure to meet Dakardriver, a very nice guy.

The ride was hot and dusty, but the awesome scenery didn't let you forget for a single moment how wonderful it was to be in this very special environment. Even though the road at first seemed to be a challenge, it was a good, relaxing drive at a comfortable speed and without serious challenges. It is a ride that everyone should do. I did it in a bakkie before, but on the bike it is something special.

Thanks Beagleboy, it was great. Count my in at the August reunion. Thanks TR for this great report.

Koos and friend, you can join now.

My only problem was that Crazy Horse with his stupid orange bike. He was driving in front of my for a long time. I almost died of jealousy.

Thanks for everybody that made the trip so wonderful!!!  Me, plus1 and plus2 back from our 8day trip, was absolutely fantastic!
Nice ride report TR, baie interesant en mooi fotos!
Nice meeting everybody, PE guys, manne van die suid kaap,SCP, gaan jou nog kom pla oor die duik.
White Stripes, bly om jou te ontmoet en jammer vir die stof van die rukkie wat ek voor jou gery het, nie bedoel om dit in te vryf............

Plus1 and Plus2 were impressed with the Wilddog spirit, and Psyched up like never before.

Taking a rest now after the 3000km's, time for planning the next one.
