The Dinosaur,The Quarry, The Newbies and Mud Mud Mud
« on: February 05, 2018, 03:58:09 pm »
                                                          The Quarry ride a sneak preview.
So the old Dinosaur takes the rug rats for a newbie ride to the Quarry.



Bit of repairs on way



The Quarry





Don’t go that way. No Ears. The first fall



Some steep descents had the adrenalin pumping and the F…, words flying. Hehe



The even played this game.



Some rookies took on the mud too fast



They ended up looking like this



The crowed looked on in Dismay.



And yet still they had to go play in the mud some more.



Some “Boney” “Gooied” some “Ou” with mud.
That will teach the “Bliksem”



The three dirty “Ous” and there “”Moerse” dirty muddy “Boneys”



We went for Tea and Cookies  afterwards



The Wash Off.





This exciting event with drowned “Boneys” and such will be coming soon .  The Dinosaur.

The Quarry ride with the Dinosaur. (Please don’t try this at home.)
So here I was “gooing” this idea around in my “Kop” over a cold one or two that seeing that we is all bored and “Gooites”  and that my other “Son” in Law “Rooi Kop” “Ou” has bought an African Twin just exactly like mine,  except the paint work is not like mine “He he”  that we should suite up and go for a “Lekker” ride down to the Quarry so that he can get used to his “Boney”, and “Sommer” my “Laatie” can get also some more experience riding on the off road “Gooites”.
Dam those little “Ous” in my “Kop” can come up with some great ideas.
So I tunes them about this “Gif” idea of mine and they is “Sommer Moerse” excited to go as I tuned them I will even share my beloved could ones with them and that I will stick them for more at the dam on the way back.  Dam I starting to think that they also “smaak” cold ones as they was fast to agree.

Now this is Jontys new Boney, he has it for a week so far. “Mooi Ne”



So we all Gooi” on our kit and we head of for a “Lekker” little ride and some family time together.

See I is also here.



And the Natasha Goose. Hehe



And Albie on his Aprillia



But there’s always the one on a ride, Jontys front mudguard has decided to come loose and the tyre chomped it.
Johnty the “skoonseun” thingy with My Daughter  Zannie who’s looking on.



So my poor “Boney” once again becomes a pack horse. He he.



Albie is “Spotting” me now, he tunes me that my Honda now has a wing. Think im gonna have to “Moer” him or something. He he



Jonty finishes the repairs so that we can have a “Lekker” ride.



Meanwhile my daughter Zannie just hangs around biting me “Kak”.

Ha we is of again, catch some “Lekker Twee spoor” section and then we come across this, and as you “Ous” can see they had a ball “Gooing” there “Boneys”  through  the drifty thingy.
Jonty



Albie.



But push on we did and “Walla” we reach the Quarry.
These two take a “Trap” and go and “Verken” the joint.



Meanwhile this “Ou” is “Dors”



Me  I just look handsome so I take this “Mooi””Kiekie” of my self Hehe



Ha!! Zannie has decided to “Rus n Biekie”



Meanwhile the “Goose” looks not “Lekker” at me as I only brought 2 cold ones with and have managed to drink them both already. He he

Meanwhile the “Laaties” take their “Boneys” and  go play in the Quarry. I think its called follow the leader that they are playing. He he











They is “Sommer” having “Lekker” fun riding in and over the humps and “Gooites”.
Then they decide to go on this path, the one I warned them not to do, but “Nee die Donnerse goed het mos nie oore nie”.





And as you get to the lip and check over it, there’s a fence about 3meter away with a “Moerse skerp” downhill,
Well Johnty made it but Albert “Skriked” and   “p….  neer”
He he his trying to pick up the “Boney all by himself.



Jonty quickly to the rescue, but Albert being a good sportsman “Okie” “Goois” a pose.



Then they is on there way again whilst I / we look on at them playing and gaining some much needed experience.



Then they come and rest a bit.

So me being such a nice “Ou” and a “Goeie” teacher I decides as these two “Bliksems” have not got ears to “Sommer” train them how to ride through mud the Dinosaur way Hehe.
They never saw it coming.
Natasha  looking on.



Jonty coming down a “Lekker” “Styl” section whilst the “Ou Vrou” checks them out.





See “Ou Vrou” checking them out. Hehe
Now Albies turn



And away he goes with a Ooh Fok here and another there. He he





Specially as Jontys on his way towards him.



Now I have told these two clown with no ears. Don’t worry just go for it, well Jonty did with a “Moerse” “Spoed” ok not so fast but hey fast enough .



Resulting in this. Hehe



And this. He he had his foot stuck under the “Boney”.
This time Albert to the rescue. He he

Oh!!! now they getting it help your buddy “Gooites”. He he Some “Ous” must just learn the hard way.



So Jonty is just ambling forward.



I tune him. Give “Sous” fool and he does and dam that E07 just grips and pulls him out.



Looking good I think.



Yea he is.





Well it aint all dirty. He he
The pous



The crowd cheering at him



Ok ok they were as there was Quite a few plastics and sand masters there. Don’t think they expected the AT to start because once she did they all jeered him on.

So are lessons learned.
Now its Alberts turn, let’s see if he has learnt anything. He he
Albie approaches the mud hole with a lot more caution.



But wait  for it wait for it

He doesn’t come straight into the mud hole. His bloody front tyre is skew, resulting in a slide.



At least he came of better than Jonty. But hey his buddy was nowhere near him to help. He he maybe I should of mentioned it at the time. He he
“Uit” “My” glove “Bluksem se modder”
OH!! Jonty coming to help. He he



The Aprillia doesn’t want to come to life, I shout at him put it in neutral which he does.



The result is she starts right up as well. Dam these machines are good. The other “Ous” there “sommer” cheer him along as well.



I think my words of earlier managed to catch up to him finally as he guns it out of there.



Showering poor old Jonty with “Stukke modder” He he



I think he was “Bly” to be out.



The “Boneys look a bit muddy if you ask me. He he



A pose or two.





Ok some more posing.







Then back to the top of the Quarry the did go but not though the mud section, still don’t know why. Hehe

Some dirty “Boneys” and “Ous”





Look see even I got dirty, look at the mud on my jeans and there even some on my “Boney” Disgusting if you ask me.



Dam I think, No!! No!!! I rather want say anything. He he



Ok Ok I promised to buy them a cold one or two so we went to the dam and had some refreshing cold ones there and sum hot chips.
Of course the people all had to chat to us seeing as how dirty our “Boneys” were and our self’s. He he
