Baie dankie aan almal vir al die reelings, lekker kos en beslis aan al die Overberg se boere wat toestemming gegee het om dit moontlik te kan maak.

Een ding wat ek opgelet het, dit is dat die roete van 2015 meer tegnies vir my was as 2016, maar nog altyd n wenner.

Net so nou en dan befok geraak vir n blerrie "plastic" wat dink hy is snaaks en klippe op gooi...

Daai 1200GS'e het daarlangs gele soos krokodille langs die Zambezi. :eek7:

Not mine.  ;)

I can vouch for that.  ;)  :thumleft: Jorg,  my dear friend,  you handled that big "1200 Fuel Bowser"  like a true pro.  :ricky:


Moet darem ook s my 1200GS het self mooi geloop soos n bediende met nuwe slippers😜

Dit was moerse lekker weereens,.

Ek en Maryna het ons eerste en laaste tumble gehad daar langs die treinspoor ek is seker iemand kan dit vir ons opsit as iemand dit het groot asb.

Ons is nie skaam nie.
Stadige wit 1992 Suzuki!

Elke jaar is net nog lekkerder en moenie eers praat van daai lekker kos nie toe ek daardie foto met die kos bakkie sien toe is weer honger.

120/100- vir almal wat dit moontlik gemaak het.

Ons hoogte punt van die jaar beslis.

Riaan van Somerset Wes dankie vir die gesels.

Cheers

Oops, helping somebody up again.

That was me, getting my foot trapped under the bike.

Riding somebody's bike up the hill.

That was my bike, after you helped me up again.

Thank you for the help, and to your lovely wife for the pics :D

Was (weereens) 'n awesome trip gewees.  Baie dankie Tienie en die res van die organiseerders.  Ek sal vanaand my foto's ook hier opsit.

I spotted you in a few places along the route & got footage of you. I'm gonna continue to work through it all tonight as soon as I get home.

This is now officially on my bucketlist for next year - Thanks to the farmers  :thumleft:

Although this has grown too big for my liking there are a couple of things that have to be said about the Canola run:

 - The absolute hospitality of the people of the Overberg
 - The lekker 'gees' that there is with everyone there - there are smiles and good times all 'round.
 - the food (also refer back to my 1st point)  :biggrin:
 - the generosity of the farmers to open up their farms for the hooligans for a 'only to be repeated once a year' experience (and privilege)
 - the general organizational skills of the powers that be. It isn't easy organizing something like this at this magnitude and last but not least:
 - the amazing scenery that is the Overberg in spring.

Lekker to see the photos and see the familiar (and some unfamiliar) sites (and faces).

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
