OK, before everyone starts asking...

My bike gave some engine troubles in Caledon on the way home. Im having it looked at next week.

Have to attend my granny's funeral in Cradock this week. She passed on Saturday. Flying to PE this afternoon.

I think we couldnt have had a better group of people together for this trip from CT. Some awesome spirits!!!

Also very sorry for Tengai and his boet, Martin for the bakkie breaking down near Rooihoek.

I hope its all sorted by now. I know Tengai has a pic of an epic bomb that I pulled on GoGirl...

Thanks EV, its actually Shirley's granny, but I adopted her as my own, she was the only granny I had left.

But she had a great innings and although it is really really sad for us right now, I know she is in good hands now.

Sorry guys, continue with the report.

I`d like to start by thanking Watty for and awsome Bash .
We left Cape Town on Thursday morning at 09h15. (6 degees)

Bradley
XT660R
Jerichorider
Ball & Chain

We picked up Rassie 800GS in Worster (3.5 degees)

I`m going to keep it short and will post the pics tomorrow at work.
I`d like to thank all that came with us and for all that joined at Carlitzdorp too.You guys rock , I`ll rider with you guys anytime.
Everyone looked out for each other too.
In case someone wants to know hod Go Girl got injured.
She came round a sharp corner  to the left and there was a deep water crossing , she hit the brakes and the front wheel went into a big hole, the front shocks compressed ( she was standing ) and some how , her bikes screen got between her goggle and her helmet .
The rebound of the shocks threw her off the bike , which landed on her.







The Hole she rode into



She got cut at the bottom or her nose or the top of her lip.This happened a good 40 kays before we even got to the rocks and the bad parts of the Baviaans.
She would hear nothing about taking her in back up vehicle.
Bradleys pached her up , bandage around the head , and rode the Baviaans , beginning to the end.
This ladies got guts.
Many thanks to all for the suport they gave her so she managed to finish the ride.
Especially  to Bradley who pached her up and rode with her the rest of the way.

She can tell you the rest of the story..

WP guys please post your pics.

Eish Go Girl! Bad luck there! :eek: :sad:

Happened to me once but the the screen hit the underside of the chin part of the helmet. Was lucky I guess.

Hope you heal well!
