What a stunning weekend!

Many thanks to all, particularly Johan & Magda, PistonPete and everybody that made it possible. The genorous prizes were equally amazing. (I have a Topbike subscription to prove it)  ;D

Meeting so many people was another highlight, getting face to face with the characters on the forum.

What a pleasure watching all the stunning pics. N[]vA, Bus, Dustsucker, Lonerider etc. The pictures are stunning.

I haven't even had time to watch all I took, but to kick off some On-the-fly ones with the P & S.

5 of us met at Lanners Landing at Klapmuts Friday 12:00 (ish). Fidel, Wannabe, Frohan, AntonW and myself.

Disaster struck early: The only bike that broke down on the whole trip. Major calamity between Wellington and Malmesbury when AntonW's 640 spat some parts out of the top of the head without any provocation. Luckily Abel had not left home and could pick him up with the bakkie and tailer quite soon.


Fidel came up with interesting roads that led us to Malmesbury and a bit of rain made it even more interesting. Pitstop at Malmesbury then the Biesiesvlei road to Moorreesburg.

Frohan in the background:


Fidel coming past me:


Crossing the N7:


The name says it all! Just such fun visiting pubs in the platteland. This one in Moorreesburg.

Our weekend started on an interesting note:


At 8am that Friday morning, I decided it was a good time for maitenance  ::) - I removed the rear TKC and tube and cleaned it all (due to a bad wobble that was present between 25-60km/h) and promptly found that all the sand had really clogged up the rear axle area. After several hours of cleaning everything, it was all buttoned up and I was ready. On the way to Petes, I discovered that my front sprocket had sheared off ALL of its teeth  ::)

So Pete gave me his old one, and I raced off to Midas to get a new headlight bulb, and install the front sprocket. After spending time at the rear of Maniax parking lot, I had greasy hands and Petes sprocket installed. Lets leave!


Everything was perfect. Sitting at 150 -165 allepad, the new jetting kit was working great, delivering more MPG  :thumleft: Suddenly after Piketberg (and missing rain), I was passing cars at around 160, when the bike suddenly died. Funny nuff, it was the missus  :o who correctly diagnosed the problem: no fuel was getting to the engine

We were really upset and decided to maul the daisies  ;)



beautiful out there






One call to Pistonitus and he picked us up in style in the Navara with his tjom Barry. We were 15clicks from Eendekuil. Of course, he refused to let us ride in the back of the bakkie saying that its too dangerous - even my kids dont do it!  :imaposer:





yeah it was COLD on the back (hence helmets), but oh so pretty






Destination: Eendekuil!







it wasnt so bad  :D



After setting us, greeting everyone, putting the tent in the "quiet side" (little did we know our neighbour Nivea was going to be a bit louder than silent...), it was time to fix da problem. Johan the proprietor (Eendstop) had no issue with me bringing the bike into his bar to fix  :thumleft:





And who sez you have to be enteligunt to fix a Kaboom?  :biggrin:



So there it was - I fixed the connection points with speaker cable (I swear I could hear Patricia Lewis coming out of my petrol pump), cleaned the modern points system, buttoned her up and roberts your fathers brother. Vrooom vroom - Fouriedop kept chirping about KTM this and BMW that... but payback is a biatch  :pot:

Early evening in the bar still



I asked Nivea to braai our meat for the evening to which he helpfully agreed to - I didnt know that Carbon Black was going to be on the menu too  :peepwall:  Also, proof that Mark Hardy is a carnivore  :peepwall:





The &@*#&(@ geraasmakers (Gogirl was chief amongst them) only hit the bricks circa 2am, and were very well oiled. I felt really eina for ol Frohan as they dismantled his tent............ twice.

It was weird to have the peace after that... almost felt too quiet!  :o

SATURDAY


Well Mark Hardy decided to get up real early and within seconds of the local NG Kerk giving us 6 rings, we heard 1x Kaboom start up and give a few revs.

A few sudden coughs and greetings greeted the early morning darkness and slowly people evacuated their tents.

A couple (make it around 5) coffees later, everyone was dressed and raring to go for a ride. Bradleys said he would lead the way up a dirt road to Kardoessie up on Piekenierskloofpas.


The overhung silly took us down the garden path and we had to make a nice big U Turn



It was cold thanks to the very wet mist - riding was a one handed affair - one hand on the throttle, and one hand wiping ones visor to see!



Near the top, it was a spectacular view



I swear I was fighting Bradleys off



Fouriedop true his BMW underpants had to have a pink milkshake to wake him up




The collective then split into two groups - one for looking at flowers (ala Pistonitus Petrus) and one for some more technical riding. And once again we were held up by the DRZ which had to be fixed with his indicators or something coming loose  >:D



Soon we were on the road. The pace was sedate at around 90-100 led by Frohan the local (his family owns a big ol farm in the area). Even so, we lost some people and took Newguy up on his offer to sweep.  This next pic could be entered into a caption contest  :deal:



A short rest break



Next off, we had some interesting times. There were intermittent longish sandy patches on the road that if you werent alert, could throw you off the bike, or at the very minimum give your heart a good race by taking the front wheel where it pleased. We were going just slow enough to make it slightly difficult - an extra 20-30km/h would have been perfect to make short work of the sand.

Nivea had Jo on the back of the bike and the sand made it quite hard for him. It made him do this





The group rejoined over here at Frohans family farm








After taking some time to clean Niveas pants up, meet Frohans family on the farm, and get his cousin to bring the video camera with  >:D we set off to have some fun in the sand.


And fun it was. Lets say that some had more fun than others  :pot:


I dont have pics for that section, but a good number of folk made it through, particularly 007 on his big ol 120000GSADV.

We then resplit the group with only 5 bikes keen to go and do the 4x2 course - according to Frohan the 4x4 course was too steep as he had flipped his mountainbike trying to ride up the thing. Sadly though, the guy wanted to charge us R50 a pop to ride the course and we werent having any of that. So we turned around to head home.






It was a very good thing, as my SE floated home on absolute fumes. How it managed to do 40 kays on reserve - two up - is evidence of the new jetting kit - at 90-100km/h it became as economical as my old Dakar!  :o 8)


We refreshed ourselves at the bar, and Nivea grew some orange fuzz on his face




Durtseeker had a fall on the sand and hurt his shoulder muscles but could still hold a beer with that arm  >:D




Nivea dronk and tired, Newguy really trying to make a brutal point and I was just hungry, eyeing the packet of peanuts in his hand






And then the Barrel Race practice began...... enter the KTM 690  :deal:

Mr Big doing the bike justice!



Hmm the wall seemed a bit close



the poor XCountry...........



The Paddler  :pot:



this 690 lifted its front wheel off the ground so easily it scared me! Trying to keep the front down and apply some power...



Fidel and good style



Nivea improving all the time...... this lad has come far in a short time! woohoo!




RACE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!! :deal:

We all a picka numbers - Wannabee was called in to write the tickets out, but my goodness that boy wrote hieroflippingglyphics!



The supporters




I must add that most of the racing lads were a little oiled by now.... the AllBlacks dominance and warm Saturday arvie sun had set some mellow moods, and racing well.... was gonna be racing..

Mr Big goes for one more practice run



I grab a quickie too - trying the 690 out had spoiled me nicely, and coming back to the extra 60kgs of the SE required a big adjustment...



Fidel and I line up - and I beat him around the first post, but from there on, he systematically hands me a nice lesson on sorting a 640 around the course.  :deal:



In this photo, Fidel is already on his way to the next pole!



Nivea and Mr Big line up and Mr Big stalls the bike, which gives Nivea a clean win!



Nice!



Newguy giving it horns



Newguy just has the edge on MrBig




Fidel with great style, takes the first return post



It was flipping close though - Newguy was very very very close!!!


Festivities over, time to park the bike



Bradleys is overcome with emotion and decides to give me a good rodgering  :patch:



The only problem is........... I didnt feel a thing!  :deal: When he left, all I could do is writhe with laughter at the size of "IT"



After this, we had a slow race which was easily won I must admit - after just 2metres its all over  :imaposer:



The funniest thing was Mark Hardy and Bradleys - sitting backwards, a beer in each hand, and legs splayed to the outside - all on a bike which had a signboard of a numberplate saying: GO GIRL

 :imaposer:




Then the night festivities got underway and after the AWESOME PRIZES were given away, we all heard a familiar 640 crank up and drive into the bar.

Fidel tried to do a burnout but his legs got in the way and asked me to help out - its not everyday you get the opportunity to rev someone elses bike and do a burnie in a bar  :mwink:








The party was a bit subdued that night, with lots of tender livers and heads, and aching tired muscles........................ the next morning would see no 6am LC8 alarm clock fer sure  :deal:

Jirre, i forgot my camera at home again! Must be those Jurgies from the bash that are still retarding my memory. Promise ill get them on 2morrow.

Lito, will that bike ever be the same again buddie?



Julle ouens met die groot bikes het me ge-impress daar in die dik sand by Frohan.

GGirl with her truly orgasmic sounding V2 KTM.
The 2 GS riders, 007 and FourieKop, julle het lekker die BM cha-cha gedaans in die sand - respek
Dirtseeker - well done, just shitty about the shoulder there mate. First thing he asked for after his fall was - 'gimme a whiskey' - hardcore guy. ;)
and for the other fairly novice riders, well done guys.
