Op, glad you're happy bud and that the jacket passed the test.

How did it hold up in the rain?

Sorry got nothing more to sell.  :-\

I was riding in heavy rain in George on Saturday. I had one of those cheap yellow rainsuits on over all the clothing, so I cant really say it was tested to the limit, but whatever exposure it had.........I never got wet!

Then I took over, met Operator between Caledon and Riviersonderend.



Het jy darem die KTM in 4e gekry saam met die Djebel  ;D

Ek sien nou eers Operator se bike het nie nommer plaat  nie, enige probleme met die KKs?

Nee wat, net derde gekry.... ;)

Geen probleme met KKs gehad nie, het in 'n roadblock vertel sy papiere is diep weggepak in sy sak, toe laat ry hulle hom weer.

Kom Uil erken dit ...Oppie het jou rooi hakskene gewys ...jy kom hom net nie vang nie !!  ;D ;D

Nice report Operator, ek en Swaerrie wou so iets doen toe ek `n KLR in PE kon kry daai tyd, pillion op sy Katoem op en ry altwee af. Jy is darem na so `n trippie goed ingelyf.

Great little report and excellent to see the network helping you to make home safetly.

That's a great bike. I've had te pleasure to ride one through some fairly technical stuff through the Grabouw forest region and it's excellent. Take a good look at where the airbox is as it's easy to drown the bike if you drop it on the left.

Hope you have many happy miles.
Cheers

Lawrence

Second was taken from Strawberry hill when we had to stop to admire the sun rays through the clouds.

Blikners that's an awesome pic (clouds). I've got an 08 d650. Yours looks pretty similar. Nice ride report okes!

Nice one doods. Sorry I could not meet you guys at the Oyster Catcher, but good to have met Trail Rider on the phone.
I am trying to do some work in a field I have little experience in, to pay the medical bills.  I had to meet a serious dead line. But hey, next time I will make a plan, and if you give me some notice  I will definitely be there.

Can an atheist get insurance against acts of god?

Hey Dewald fantastic !, well done you have waited for this and what a way to get to know your bike perfect start to a long and rewarding ride together? I have been out of action so I have just read this thread, would like to chat to you sometime about the overall performance of the bike as you see it. Great bike enjoy  ;D
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Ja I also thought it was special. I've known Operator for almost 20 years and was over the moon when he told me he's getting the bike and riding it down. And I got to see and hold the fire bucket!
My original plan was to meet Operator at Albertinia or Riversdale.
Then I got called out to Bredasdorp area Saturday morning.
Then the rain in George delayed Operator in George and I was glad because maybe I could still meet him somewhere.
I only left Bredasdorp 2 o'clock and was outside cell coverage until 3. The roads are pretty bad and I got to Heidelberg about 5 o'clock after picking the kids up at a friends farm where I dropped them Sat morning, taking them home, swoping the car for the bike and hauled ass up the N2 (in matter of speaking)!
Then a quick ride Heidelberg - Swellendam along the way we took the famous pic where the sun rays shines more on the 650 than the 250 (or is it just me?)
Here's a pic of where we spent Sat night drinking red wine and talking sense!
Then Sunday morning it was our monthly trek to Malgas (church) so we had to leave early again and I couldn't ride with him to Riviersonderend and maybe even meet Uiltjie.
All this means they'll just have to come back sometime soon!
