OK, let's see if this works. I have made a small video, mostly of the ride on Saturday. Try to change the video quality to HD for best enjoyment.

Thanx Bundu! Wonder what I did wrong in trying to embed the video?

Edit: Have now figured it out with the assistance of IDR. Thanx!

Thanks to all concerned it was a lekker jol and sorry for not saying good bye.

I was looking for you on Sunday morning to return your road atlas, but you were gone already. I gave it to Cyclops, as he also lives in Alberton. Will you contact him to get it back?

It was nice riding with you, Schalk. Thank you also for the book. I will post a video of our ride a bit later.
Hi Dana thanks for the ride and I will get my book from Cyclops. Thanks a lot

Hi Schalk. I have your atlas safe and sound. I have sent you a PM so we can arrange for you to collect.

To all on the bash - it was great and lots of thanks to all the organisers. It's always great to meet up with old buddies and to make new ones.
Til the next one then

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Dana, ons wag nog vir daai dans wat jy die "dare" van aanvaar het, en toe heeltemal te laat geslaap het!! Ons gaan jou verantwoordbaar hou vir daai "dare", hoor.  Draadwerk het verskriklik na daai dans uitgesien........

 :laughing4: Ja Phillip, dankie dat jy my daaraan herinner. Volgende keer miskien!

Baie nice video Cruizaman.

Lekker saamgery - ek meen nou weer met die video.

Ek het mos lekker smiley opgetel op my voorwiel met daai langpad na Dullstroom. Gaan probeer vir nuwe voorwiel deur die insurance.

Thanx vir jou en Draadwerk om die tent met my te deel. Lekker gekuier nč, veral net voor die rugby met daai rooi label botteltjie.  :blob5: :blob6: :eek7:

Spring maar julle freestaters, die wiel draai. Baie geluk aan die cheetas.

Nicobie, ek stem saam, mooi video en lekker saamgery.  Gelukkig het ek daai Rooi Labeltjie 'n mis gegee..... ::)

Morning , Thanks to To Swifty and all others involved with the bash , I must say i really enjoyed it , being my first one , of many more for certain. Successfully arranged and executed.
Not many photos from my side but a small report i believe will be in order.
So Friday Myself , Bazinga , Pietskiet and Dwerg met at our usual watering hole in the east of Pretoria for a bite ect , we set off after many days of deliberation with between the 4 of us and being relatively new to the DS world
I decided to embarrass the group and ride the the blackstuff all the way to the venue , Pietskiet decided to join my leisurely cruise. So we set off and bid farewell to Dwerg and Bazinga close to Verena as they took to the dirt.
I had a fun chilled and relaxed ride as the scenery just got better and better. We stopped close to the petrol station at the turn off and decided our next move as a couple of fellow riders blasted pass saving there front wheel and keeping it at nearly 12 o'clock ( believe it was Fankie on the S-Tenere) We regrouped at the orchard close to the venue just for some liquids and decided to move along to Ruby resort.
The venue next to the river provided great solace from everyday live and had a relaxing time as we met the evening with a few cold ones in hand. We moved on to the lapa and spent the rest of the evening socializing and met some new faces.
When the lapa closed we moved on for a final final one at Chalet.
So Saturday up early and not having the required of hours of sleep we set of for a ride to the Highside Tavern at Tonteldoos. Wow what a great ride we had , and the dirt was absolutely beautiful.This ride made my weekend and will be remembered for a long time to come. Pietskiet overshot the tavern i believe he just wanted to keep on riding Circlips 660 that was one lone to him for Saturday , Dwerg set in persute to retrieve pietskiet and we steched out legs and had a cold one. Back at the resort we spent most of the afternoon at one of the many ( Many ) pools the resort have. And met with Dwerg and Bazinga +1 that came through for the evening. Then attended the charity function gave a little to the community and pledged some cash for a good cause.
I turned out to be a long night back at the chalet , with visitors coming and going or just right out avoiding us as we recaptured our youth , had a braai and was surprised by one heck of a storm.
Sunday was tough to say the least but we made it back to and stopped at QS to finalize and agree that it was a great successful bash.
Thanks to all involved And to my Friends that rode with me that i just met a year ago you are Legends.

Vir die stil oukie in die hoek , was sy eerste bash lekker verby. OS en span dankie vir die aan  mekaar sit en reelings. Sal daar wees vir die volgende een.
 Die naweek het omtrent so iets verloop: daar heen gery, tent op geslaan. Gebraai en gekuier. Bietjie geslaap. Gaan ry, gekuier,weer gery,  pap voor wiel uitgesort danksy Philip.Geswem gekuier en amper die rugby gemis.  Gebraai en weer gekuier. Bietjie nat gereen en toe maar onder die Lapa gaan intrek saam die ander wees kinders. Opgepak en geroet en huis toe gery. Die vrou lief opgetel en twee keer Kaapschehoop toe gery vir cell foon sein. En toe kon ek eers n middag slaapie vang.
Die lekkerste van die naweek, Kon vir n slag “political incorrect “ wees. Nie te veel worrie oor ander se Ego’s nie.
