Wednesday 12th   Day 22    Oliefantshoek – Klerksdorp    (430 Km)

The final stage of our journey is here, we up early pack up the tent and we of. The roads are shitty, a lot of cages on them, we narrowly miss a few of them as they are taking “moerse” chances. We push on to Kathu, stop at a garage, fill up the bikes, get something to eat and push on.

Phone my buddie Koos in Ottasdaal to tell him we on our way that way and we will stop to say hi. He owns the local Butcher, so when we stop there he has a braai going and after the good reunion of not seeing him and his missus for two years and introducing him to Tappet he pulls out some cold ones and me Koos, Liezel and Tappet enjoy some cold ones and the best sosaties I have ever tasted. :Sommer” bought R200.00 worth to take home





Well we say our goodbyes and head of for home, not knowing that another surprise still awaits us. As we come around a bend i see my daughter and a few of our club members waiting for us next to the road with cold ones and open arms to welcome us back home. With a lump in our throats we greet them and have a few cold ones next to the road.
Needles to say they were expecting us to be there at 12h00 but due to our “Kuier” with Koos and Liezel we only got there about at 14h00. He he They was a bit worried.







And so we are escorted home
A braai has been organized and even my other two Kids from Pretoria have come down so we kuier till late











An Epic way to finish a ride. Ones Family and good friends

Hierdie was nou een helse nice RR, ek het dit baie geniet en die skryf styl is great, Thanks Allen  :thumleft:

Daai huis buite Aus waar jy so spot van die dors, Desember toe ons daar was het Hamster (forum naam) vir amper 6 ure in daai huisie gesit terwyl dit 40 grade was,  :imaposer: :imaposer:

Ek het ook in gedraai by die huis en hy het gevolg maar toe kry hy 'n puncture op sy 660 se agter wiel, met die spinery in die sand spin hy toe die tjoep moer toe en daar vind ons uit hy het nooit 'n tjoep in gepak vir die trip nie, kos my toe maar Luderitz toe ry vir 'n tjoep maar kon niks daar kry nie en toe was al opsie om hom met 'n trailer te gaan haal en 'n tjoep uit Windhoek uit te laat kom.

Dit was seker sy lankste en kakste ses ure wat hy ooit gehad het,  :imaposer: :imaposer:

So gepraat van dieselfde bikes, ek het presies dieselfde gehad, ook swart met goud,,,,,,, toe ek nog dom was,,  :peepwall: :imaposer:

Nee, wat ek eintlik wil sę is, Allan, ek het regtig 'n AT gehad en ken sy seat maar het die naweek 4kays se seat gesien en sou ek nog 'n AT gehad het sou ek beslus so seat op gesit het, kontak 4kays vir fotos.

Ek gaan kom vir 'n lessie of twee met die foto-nemery.  :thumleft:
