Michelle falling in love with her "X"
« on: April 13, 2015, 12:52:55 pm »
So kom die 11 April, en ons is baie opgewonde, dis Woema se oornag rit na Dullstroom toe, en ons ry saam. Michelle se langste rit nog.

Die Groep, Jan, Tertius, Hennie en Michelle en ek.

Saterdag middag so 12:00 weg by die Woema Winkel oppad na Greystone, Dullstroom. Die pad lei ons om Loskop, via Learsdrif  na Dullstroom.

Michelle se skill level begin meer en meer verbeter, en ons begin onbekende roetes aanpak. Van om Loskop se gravel highways na die rutted paaie oppad Dullstroom toe, se ry met soveel selfvertroue...

Het die groeter fietse vooruit gestuur, en het laat sy binne haar eie comfort zone ry... geleidelik self vertroue opbou

Jan het n heeltemal nuwe roete gehad. Van Gravel highways, teen die die platorand af met sulke klein tipe passies, dan weer tussen mielielande. Dan langs die treinspoor. Dan om weer net agter Loskop die N11 te slaan Middel burg toe. Waar ons bietjie in drip gery het.

Van daar die N4 opgetel en kom motorfietse was in Pretoria.

So ja, met al die challanges wat ons gekry het oor die naweek, ry Sy met baie meer self vertroue, en begin haar X meer en meer vertrou.

Selfs sy se hulle twee het lekker ge-gel....

En dit maak nie saak nie, want dit is verskriklik lekker om saam my vrou te ry.

Dankie aan Jan, Tertius en Hennie, vir n lekker kuier. En die geduld. Waardeur.

Altyd lekker om jou trips te lees en nog lekkerder as jou wederhelf dit saam met jou doen.

Looks like you had a great ride and big up for getting your better half onto her own bike.
Any chance you have the GPS route file for the trip?
