Well I Never expected the turn out that came for the newbie ride :o Broke our previous record by at least half a dozen. Malgat counted 26 motorycles.I am not even going to start to mention each and everyone who came. I could only count till ten with my gloves off and i was definately not going to take my Boots off ;) The WD's who came along as in the past were a SUPER group some with pillion's and fortunately without attitudes. The group who came from the west and east rand had some rain on the way up. We on the otherhand would have enjoyed some rain to settle some of the dust. Thank's to Ryperd and Gunda for sweeping as well as for Malgat who was able to get the riders together for a briefing with his Booming voice  ;DWe did a short trip on mostly dirt to Cullinan and had a Brunch and socialized. Was Super to meet You All Old WD's and new. After brunch and just chilling most left back home in different directions. Four of us carried on to do a additional 230km of  ;D ;D That my friend's is another story----Watch this space. To The Wd's-----Well done you all did very well and was nice to see some who have regained their confidence again. Here are some pic's of the outing. Sometimes pictures can say more than word's can  -----Enjoy. First pic looked more like a WD Bash ;D

Great ride, thanks Blazes. As always it's great to meet some new dogs and see some previously well - met ones again.

Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

Thanks for putting together a great day blazes.

Just knew it was going to be a great day from the feeling I got when I was at the N14 / R511 enjoying some good Sasol coffee and a muffin and this whole posse of five bikes, headed by Lourens and Mrs kitted in nifty orange, the mellow yellow rainsuited Munros, and the schweet F800 with Malibu atop come over the rise.

Looked awesome.

From there it got better. Lekka dirty wiggle-waggle to cullinan. I soon realized Ryperd was more competant a sweeper than I would ever be, handed over to him, and joined the mid-pack for most of the ride.

After Cullinan headed off, mostly in the wrong direction since my big GPS is bust, to the Solstice Festival of Micro Brewers for a Pickled Pig Porter with Malgat & Mrs and a long and involved chat with a charming lady who has invented a device to allow ladies to pee while standing that she says is a must for lady riders.

I promised her I would create a thread here on the forum and I always do what I am told.   

Found a pub to watch the rugby. Talked bikes and saw no rugby worth watching and got home just after dark after a really good day in the saddle.

Thanks again Blazes, and Groot Marico brace y'self and get the mampoer stills fired up - the dogs are coming to town.
