Weird no picks of food when Ian was on his own, so one can assume he is not the "big vreeter"? :peepwall: ;) >:D :lol8:

Dankie vir 'n lekkerlees rr.  Man ek voel eintlik hoe julle die situasies deurgewerk het, frustasies en dan natuurlik ook julle avontuurlus.  En eventually, dis waaroor dit gaan, daai avontuur wat die hele trip maak, lekker en sleg.

Well done, hat off to both you and the bikes.

Well done you old f*cks !
Another RR well worthy for nomination in the 'Roll of honour - best ride reports' section methinks.  :thumleft:

Ps - had a few cold ones with Allen on saturday. Confirm he easily added 20kg's around the waist.

Hey you who you calling fat, im just short for  my weight. And its not 20kg, Its19.89kg.  :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:
glad you enjoyed the ride mate, its always "Lekker" to right them when you "Ous" enjoy them, but it was a "Lekker" ride.  n :biggrin: :ricky:

Yip the ride back in the "Isuzu" was like a Rolls and was  cool, but i would still have prefered to get home on the bike.  :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :ricky:
