Lastly my other highlights. Meeting Ginger, a lovely lady. All the best to you and Hubby Ginger.
Lance and Zanie. Zanie is my heroine. I love her ride reports, and the amazing roads that Lance finds to lead her astray on. It was so cool to have met you both. Looking forward to reading a lifetime of reports on your travels together.
And the Purple Hooligan Ri. A fellow DR rider. I wish I had more time to spend with all of you.
So long, and thanks for the ride.

It was really, really cool to meet you too! I am so chuffed  :laughing9:

What a beautiful place we live in. Well done to organizers and thanks to farmers and sponsors. Started off a bit scary almost with shear numbers (especially the under 21 superman squad) but once we got through the railway line bottles necks it went well. Take my hat of to the guys muscling 1200's or being muscled by them. Definitely again next year

This is the GS400, the first in a line of terrific twins, namely the GS250/400/425 and GS500.

This guy had a dead spark plug, and had to bakkie his bike back to Caledon. He has a skateboard plank for a seat, and when the bakkie recovery driver asked him how he sits on that thing, he said that he's got a young arse. :imaposer:

Get up, look up and use your body weight to control the bike, only way to ride these bikes.

Extra photo just for 2StrokeDan.  :biggrin:

Let's not forget our sponsors, big thank you to them and all the farmers that allowed us to ride on their land.  :thumleft:

Food time.
