Back in civilisation.   :biggrin:  Thanks for starting the post XRRX.   :thumleft:

What can I say.  An awesome ride with a great bunch of people.  Was really nice seeing old faces and meeting new ones.  It was a privilege to be able to join you guys and ladies.   
Thanks Bus for organising this ride.   :thumleft:  :thumleft:
Thanks Jupiter for pillion the Kuiken.   :thumleft:  :thumleft:
Thanks to all who made it possible and who made Callie's day.  In the beginning of the ride I was quite uncomfortable is my riding style with a disabled person in the Karretjie, but every time I tapped on Callie's shoulder to confirm that all is still OK, I received a big thumbs up and a smile ear to ear.   Callie, I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as we did.  We so wish that we were closer so that we could do this more often.

I will post some pichas soon.

So so cool!! Thank you for the pics!
And so so sad that I couldn't make it to the breakfast.
Many thanks to all of you who joined.
And especially the Visarende who got involved with this at the drop of a hat!
Everything just fell into place beautifully.
As if meant to be.
Cheers all

 :thumleft:  Jammer jy kon dit nie maak nie, dit was een bevange trip.  Ons maak weer so en jy beter sorg dat jy daar is.   :deal:

Thx,almal,dit was n nice outing en ek glo Callie het dit geniet alhoewel ek dink sy lyf sal seker n bietjie styf wees vandag,en sh.t kan daai karretjie move  :biggrin:

|ek dink sy arme lyf het 'n kwaai punding gevat.  Ek kon duidelik sien dat Callie aan die einde van die trip moeg geraak het, maar daai smile het groot gebly.   :biggrin:   Ek haal my hoed af vir die man.  Die pad was maar stamperig en kak sleg op plekke en dan het dit ook nog lekker warm geword, maar hy het nie een keer gekla nie.   :thumleft:  :thumleft:  :thumleft:

Hi Everybody,

No that I am back in the land of the internet and reallity, I just want to say thank you to each and every person who was there, I was an amazing experience looking in the mirror an seeing that long line of bikes behind us! The pain the next day was worth it.

En baie dankie vir die Visarend legends! Dit was baie lekker, ek sal dit seker nie genoeg kan sę nie!

Here are some pictures that my dad took.

Dit was een groot plesien en voorreg vir ons, Callie.   :thumleft:

Die beste beskrywing van die dag is seker die Kuiken se kommentaar  : 
“GIVING UP MY SEAT FOR YOU IS THE BEST THING YOU COULD HAVE DONE FOR ME…”

Ons maak weer so.

Ai, ek wens ek kon die trip mee maak, maar nee julle beplan mos alles waneer die Jakkals nie by die huis is nie.  ???


Baie nice, weereens net 'n bewys dat die WD is puik, thumps up vir almal van julle wat deel gehad het aan die wonderlike dag.
