Wag nog steeds vir die ander twee uit drie wat ek ken wat neergemoer het - kom manne, julle kan nie wegkruip nie...

Thanks for the awesome pic's Bring it on. I think the question to be asked is "who didn't buy a farm" :imaposer:

I just loved the eagerness of this little dude. :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

Everyone was going around this little water pool...& he simply gave his bike gas & belted through the water like a true little Boss ;D :thumleft: :thumleft:

Nicely done buddy....showing us all how it should be done ;)

Once again around the next corner....this little dude twists his right hand & takes on the next little bit of water. :ricky: :lol8: :lol8:

He sure was having a great time. Really nice to see little guys getting started into biking from a young age ;D

I'm sure that most of you guys will agree that the grass here over this section was pretty frikking slippery  :o :o but made for some nice practice in "counter balance" as your bike's tyres tended to have a mind of their own :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

Now for the footage of my appointment with the "Estate Agent" when I had did a "Close Inspection on some Prime Local Real Estate" :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

I had been riding behind the 650GS for a while & had all good intensions of moving over to the left lane to overtake. I noticed in my mirror that there was a gap in the flow of guys passing us & then quickly looked to the left behind me to make sure the coast was clear in order to pass. As I prepared to make the transition across the middle wet grass section & into the left track.....my front wheel gripped nicely through the process....but eish....that back wheel definitely had a "bit too my of the Right Hand on the Throttle syndrome" through it all  :o :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: & in literally a split second.... my scooter did a pretty "ungraceful 180deg about sideways turn:patch: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: & promptly came to rest facing the "now on-coming flow of traffic" :imaposer: :imaposer:

Ooooopps. Sorry guys for keeping you all up while Pluto & a few other guys kindly assisted me in getting  my scooter back onto 2-wheels.

I have to say the both Goose & I did a good test of our Sena S-20 BT headsets through out this ride.... & we both admitted of how impressed & happy we were with its "range, battery life & AWESOME sound quality" :thumleft: :thumleft:

The comms between Goose & I had broken a bit along this previous section only due to the distance between us @ times as well as the little "dips/hills"...... then a little way up the road our Sena BT headsets made a connection again, meaning Goose was not too far behind me. So I snapped a few shots of the guys passing by as I waited for Goose to come into site (in the last 2 photos).
