mooi foto's, Dorsland!

Dankie WB, dis daai Manfrotto driepoot wat help  :imaposer:  :pot:

:thumleft: Dorsland en dit was lekker om te ontmoet en te gesels.

Dankie Jup, ja mens bou mos so 'n beeld van 'n Dawg op die forum op en dan is jy aangenaam verras as jy hulle ontmoet.   :imaposer:  Maar jy moet darem leer glimlag jong.  Met daai skills challenge het jy waaragtig jou glimlagspiere in toom gehou  :lol8:

Was a really nice event. Great to meet new riders and meet up with the old ones. Well done Jupiter, and thanks for letting me chat to the guys about Amageza!  :thumleft:

Lekker okes , it was pretty good to wake up sober on both days . Made this year a quieter bash for myself and felt so much better , but yet had that niggling you let the drinking team down feeling .
Also the first time for Dirt Junkie and myself to sleep in the " pensioners corner " with Veldbrand and Footpeg se pa , We even had to pitch their tents . The old farts !

Next time for sure  :thumleft:

Let me explain then for all those that are so concerned that they never see me smile  :biggrin: The guy on the right is Watty. I don't recall ever seeing him smile but inside he had a heart of gold and one was poorer for not knowing him. He was a serious man and my mentor as a WD, and guide to organising bashes. It is serious business  :deal: So I thought that's how it is, but I'll try harder from now on  :3some:

To my shame I forgot the dedication to him on Saturday evening, but I'm sure he smiles on us now.  :thumleft:

Baie lekker gebash en klomp nuwe honne ontmoet.  Dis my eerste rit na die Baviaans toe en dis bitter baie mooi.  Ek is seker daar is plekke in die kloof waar g'n mens se voete nog was nie.

Paar fodies ...

Eerste volgooi op Willowmore.  Teen die tyd lekker nat gereën.  Maar die wind  :eek7:  amper van ons fietse afgewaai.  Ek het lekker saam jou gekuier en gery Woody  :thumleft:





Die bashers begin saamdrom:





Die spyseniers het baie hard agter die vure gewerk.  Baie dankie julle ouens, dis dikwels ondankbare werk maar die kos was lekker, volop en die koffiewater altyd an't kook  :thumleft:  Weet net dat dit opreg waardeer word







Bewys dat die ontbyt topklas was ...





Ek was ook daar





Daar is soveel mooi landskappe, mens weet nie wat om te pos en wat om te los nie.  Hierdie paar was vir my bitter mooi gewees.












Die blomme is so mooi en sommer die hele węreld vol.  Plumbago met die pragtige bloeisels staan die hange heel blou.








Ek het my naam lekker velskoen gemaak met die skills challenge, verder geen beserings of skade nie. Maar daar is party manne en maninne wat darem kan.  Volgende jaar sleep ek die Bushlandertjie saam dan bars julle  ;D








En toe Sondag moet die pad huistoe aangepak word  :(  Die landskappe is nog steeds bekoorlik, ek ry stadig,  die KTM manne roost my maar ek stop en ry, neem fotos, ry verder.  En dis vrekken koud!!  Het bo buite die kloof gestop om my thermals aan te trek.  Geen fodies nie, jammer  :imaposer:










Lekker foties man, en dit was lekker om saam met jou te kon gery het... Daai Kudu droewors is KONING...  :imaposer:

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

As ek daai wors, my stofie met genoeg teesakkies en droë perskes saamry, dan kan ek so 21 dae in die wilderness oorleef  :imaposer:

His name is Kobus Esterhuizen. A fine fellow. I have very fond memories of him in my PE years.

I knew Kobus fairly well , was a good client of mine . He also used to use our shop exterior lights at night to do sea worthy inspections on boats for the local angling clubs.
Wonderful guy who had the patience of Moses .

I saw Jup smile on Saturday night when the boys decided to rev their bikes while Jo was doing her speech , i think secretly he is  a reprobate like the rest of us . Dont worry Jup we understand you !! Boys will be Boys - some have to present themselves better for the greater good .  :thumleft:

So I ended up riding out Solo and had an absolute blast ... my route was the Cockscomb road Steytlerville, Willowmore and in "the long way round" for some much needed "Helmet time".  :ricky:



The Cockscomb road was a little damp after a bit of rain ...  but most enjoyable ... no dust!!  ;)



After a stop at the Royal Hotel for a lite breakfast  and moving on to Willowmore for petrol .... GS Versus truck ... thank goodness the driver shared the road ..... :patch:



Looks like I'll be riding into some rain ........ my rain suit is at the bottom of the top-box  :xxbah:



A quick "Bum Break" as I entered the "Baviaanskloof Sleutel"



And then a few drops of rain came down .... but nothing to get excited about .....  ;)



There appeared to be very little water in the Kloof, must admit I was expecting a little more than this!! .....  :-\


 
Arrival after a great mornings ride ...  ;D



Thanks Jup for another well organized bash, also to the caterers and the farming community 10/10 for a wonderful weekend filled with laughter!!  :thumleft:

Innis and I took the long way around home and did the Kouga Loop. Been a while and I had forgotten how beautiful this piece of road is.
