EC BASH 2016 - Group Report
« on: May 08, 2016, 03:44:45 pm »
There's always that one pic that is going to remind you of the weekend.  :biggrin:

Nimmo and I met at Tolbos in Patensie and rode together to Doringkloof. Now I'm riding in front, because I know the Kloof, and must keep him out of trouble with his new KTM.

I come around this corner and there is a puddle of water I had not seen before. I manage to slow down just in time to make a gentle plunge and go through. Its deep.

Now a good friend would warn his riding buddy, because I just know Nimmo is going to come around that corner too fast and make a splash,... but a better friend waits with his camera ready to take a pic for his other friends  :lol8:

And he comes around the corner, cannot brake in time humps over the bump just before the puddle, and hurtles in with a spectacular splash about 3 m in, and comes to a dead stop.

It was worth it. Luckily Nimmo has a good sense of humor. He starts the KTM and rides out, sopping wet  :imaposer:

Another good bash. Thanks to all for making it a most enjoyable weekend. The nice thing about the rain on Saturday is just about everybody stayed in camp and had a lekker rustige kuier.

I'll edit the rest of my pics later(I remembered to take some this year  :biggrin: ) and post.

In the mean time... gooi  :thumleft:

Home from another epic bash. As always, superbly organised hosted and catered. And a great bunch of dogs and  er, lady dogs. Thanks to all that came along.

The rain was kind, didn't get wet, well hardly anyway, riding there and home again.

Also got taken by surprise at that same water splash, but the surprise is that I reacted just right and gunned it through feet up.

Coming back on the snotty-in-places Willowmore road, I was blown away not once, but twice, by a couple of fast riders who probably didn't even see me, I was moving so slowly. I was pretty certain who they were, but then I guess I must be wrong, because they were standing on the pegs, so it couldn't have been Sit Down Dan.
Could it?

It rained the whole of Saturday, but that did not dampen the spirits.

Friday Camel pitch his tent in the usual place, in a hollow, and had to move the next morning

Earlier in the week when the weather predictions came out someone asked how is Jannie going to do the spit if it rains. I said I'm sure he's done it before and he has. Boer maak 'n plan  :thumleft:
