Thanks to everyone. Another most enjoyable bash. Clooney and I had a very eventful ride back through the Side Entry. It is now very rough. A good few windmills, and some offs later, (Clooney getting pinned against a cliff) we made it out safely, totally knackered.

Suffering a bit of PTSD and not so sure I'll do it again, unless I get myself a bit fitter.

Ja must say I was a bit surprised at the condition coming in that way - kept me busy in the cockpit at times on a 1200cc. At least no offs, but ja works you but worth it.  :patch:

I can't even think how you managed that rocky up hills on a 1200 and did not loose a pod. And there is no picking a line. You just have to gun it and get lucky.

And Albert Meintjies needs a special mention. The man wowed us with his music, and that guitar is something else. If ever you get the opportunity to go listen to him, do so.

Thanks again Albert. Maybe at the Uitspan Spitbraai in October ? With advance planning we can send a hat around to contrbute to the 1150 repairs  :biggrin:

My only pics. Going in at the top of Combrinkspass going on to Bergplaas.

On the plateau going out after surviving the Rus en Vrede part of the Side entry. Should have taken a pic of Clooney pinned against the cliff after coming short on a down hill, but was too busy catching my breath and rescueing him.

Myself and Bouwer had a lovely "short" bash leaving from Jbay early saturday morning and gravel back roads to Kareedouw and a yummy breakfast at the Sweaty Dutchman and then through the Rus n Vrede side entry. First time that ive done the complete ride into the Kloof from Kareedouw and really enjoyed the views etc. Very difficult to capture the difficulty from pics as a person cant stop where things get messy :lol8:
