Blazes, Thanx for organizing such a nice outing me & "blondie" had serious fun. I was amazed at the turnout as I expected bout 10 bikes..
Between you leading & Ryperd sweeping (fortunately there were no mielie lande  :pot:) it was a perfect day.

Thanks to Blazes for once again an awesome ride, it is always great to ride with you.  Thanks to everyone for making it a wonderful day, it is always nice to meet new dogs and get together with familiar dogs to enjoy the day.  It was really great having more ladies join the ride.

I was pleased to see my confidence levels are back up again.  Ryperd took us on a ride home that had quite a number of hairy places, but, I managed them and did not keep the group waiting too long for me.  Thanks Ryperd it was fun.

I look forward to the next ride, until then, take care.

there is no such thing as luck,,,good or bad

i believe my puncture problems have been solved,,,after riding 3 days without hassles i managed to pick up a puncture again after the first stint of offroad,,,totally pissed off i managed to skip and pump, back to the bike shop from garage to garage,,,,

my problem since the dullstroom ride was in fact an small cut on the inside wall of my tyre,,,riding easy tar roads it didnt bother but once you hit offroad and the wheel absorbs the bumps and grind the cut would pinch the tube (my 4th in a row)

so kippie had to buy an unscheduled tyre and replaced the tube

so all is well in my camp

thanx for the ride as far as i could go,,,,nice turnout, nice bikes, nice people, nice nice nice

Really enjoyed!  ;D

Thanks for organising the trip Blazes, was good to get out again with new WD's (and some old ones ;D).  The group was BIG, and part for the 1st turn-off where Malibu went straight, no other mishaps that I know off.

Was nice to ride sweeper, and was great to see the confidence levels grow as the km's ticked along.

Our trip back home was fun, the rail roads are always lekka!!

Till next time

Nice to see you have your confidence back. Great to have you and Jules on the ride ;)

Thanks from this newbie, who got the chance to meet some of you and also take my bike on dirt the first time.

Special thanks to Blazes for putting the day together, and all of you who gave important advice during the ride (switch ABS off, use the back brake rather than the front, rise your center of gravity by standing up, etc..). If I only had know these when we were trying to catch up with the bigger group and hit the first parts of the gravel...
