Fantastic Canola Run, the best one ever.
And I know I say that every year,but it was,
The routes all very well marked,plenty of marshals,
Big Thanks to Caledon Traffic dep. For stopping the traffic on the N2 to give us all right of way when we crossed over.

Big up to all the sponsors too and most of all to Tinie and his team
,VERY WELL DONE ,!

Thanks for a great day! I am sure the routes were planned specifically for XT500's  :) 
If you can start it you can ride it

Agreed. As much as I am uncomfortable off road, I felt safe.  Plenty backup crews. Definitely doing it next year.
So many roads, so little time

Johnny Bok en almal wat betrokke was met die reëlings, knap gedaan! Al ken ek julle glad nie was die effektiwiteit van die verloop en die gasvryheid aanvoelbaar.

Ek ry saam met Andy hulle en moet die klankgrens breek net om by te bly oppad Caledon toe.
Daar aan gekom is ek klaar asvaal van die stof  :3some:

Robin Brown, wat op 14 September 1945 die tweede wêreld oorlog net-net vrygespring het wen op 72 die prys vir die oudste deelnemer.
Op die tweede foto kom hy teen die bult uit op sy African Twin.

Terwyl baie se ego gekrenk is deur die stukke sand en modder, ry dié veertien jarige Yolanda haar plaasfiets lag-lag deur die roete.
Sy't die dag voor die tyd gees gevang en besluit om ook te ry. Geen spesiale uitrusting, 100cc two-stroke padfietsie en sy laat ons ander skaam weg kyk.
Met daai hout-trommel agterop was sy seker ook nog reg om padbystanddiens te lewer.

Mooi so my kind, met die regte fiets sal jy darem vir baie van ons ore aansit!  :3some:

Ek was baie verbaas om een van my oud skoliere, Rudolf Krige, hier raak te loop.
Dink hy was nog meer verbaas om my daar te sien.

Na net oor die honderd kilometer op die lekkerste plaaspaaie is ons almal rasend van die honger en lyk ons
soos Kommando-wurms in die kos ry.

Thanks Andy for getting this RR thread started.

Also... thanks again Jonnie Bok for all your efforts into making this year's event a great success.

WRT all my footage I have from my helmet camera..... I just got back home today & will be starting to work my way through many hours of footage in order to extract all the photos. Will do my best in order to get it done & posted ASAP  ;D :thumleft: :thumleft:

Oom Bok.Weereens dankie vir die hoogte punt op ons kalender.Elke jaar is net lekkerder.Die gasvryheid en die ongelooflike lekker kos. Dan ook vir daardie verassings soos die koffie in die oggend en dan daardie pannekoek en die smul lekker koeksisters en daardie sagte braaivleis julle mag maar. n 12 uit 10 en die roete was soos altyd baie lekker.Dit was hierdie jaar opvallend en baie lekker dat daar soveel pillions was.Ek hoop hulle het baie fotos geneem toe hulle wag net bo die sand heuweltjie.

Ons sien julle weer volgende jaar weer - Dankie vir ongelooflike lekker dag en memories en almal wat gehelp het met die reelings.Groete.
