Bikes, Booze and a Quarry
« on: May 28, 2018, 02:13:03 pm »
                        Bikes, Booz, The Dinosaur, The Cous (Bill P) The kids and mates and the Quarry
Mmmm This has been lying dormant , as I forgot to “Gooi” it on the site. Hehe (Blame it on Bloody old age or something)
So once again I gets this aas “Jukking” in my “Gat” to go and play at the quarry in the “Modder” again.
Now me old Cous Bill P on the site decides that as we “Ous””Sommer” had so much fun in the “Modder” last time that he is going to join us “Ous”.
We organize the ride and the meet up at my possie and we get “Kuiring” and all of the other “Gooites” that goes with it.
Next morning we is up early and have to have a cold one or two to help with the “Kopseur Gooites” that we is feeling.
Now I think that the “ou” that invented the helmet thingy had two ideas about its purpose. First one is too help keep the “Gogas” out of one’s eyes and to keep the rain from messing up ones hair.
The second one is to help keep a “Ous” head from splitting apart from the night before “Kuiring”, as once again our “Koppe” was behaving badly and felt like they was gonna break open.
So anyways we rock up at “Die stoep” for a quick cold one to help settle the head, stomach and other “Gooites”.

Dam we is handsome “Ous” me and this Cous of mine



And then he “Sommer” wanted a quicky, “Fok man” I ment a “Kiekie” of him and my Goose Tash. So here’s a “Kiekie” of them
.


Then the other “ous” started to rock up.



The almost “Skoonseuns” old man Ernest.



The Rug Rats and the almost “Skoonseun” Jonty



We takes this “Mooi” photie of us “Ous”



And this one.



We hops on our Boneys and head for the “Great” outdoors.

We go down this “Moerse” long tricky road.



We battle our way through "Dik Bosse



We cross over “Moerse” wild rivers



We head down slippery sand roads with “moerse dongas” in it.



We is having a bloody “Lekker” ride.
We come to this “Moerse” long tunnel that stretches for meters under the railway line, forcing us to face our fears and proceed through it to the other side.



Seem that im the leader of this crack riding team, with my heart pounding in my throat I put the “Boney” in gear and proceed to the other side of the tunnel





Not to be out done Bill “Goois” his Boney in gear as well and follows me through.





Albie aint a chicken and follows closely behind Bill.





We wait for Jonty but no nothing, has he chickened out?. We is forced to take recognisance to find him and his Boney. Which we do still on the other side. Looks like his Boney did not like the look of the tunnel as it “Sommer” just got battery problems; We spoke nicely to it whilst we fastened the bolts on the terminals so that it wasn’t scared anymore





Ok all is okay now so she starts and is one happy Boney again.
Meanwhile Bill takes a trap back through the tunnel.





But as he gets here he starts playing this game.









Not sure what it’s called but he had fun doing it.
Meanwhile young Jonty has decided to descend onto the tunnel.



And





They make it through. See I tune them I knew you “Ous” could do it.
After all of the excitement its time to get going as we have now officially have run out of cold ones and Cous Bill is like a bear with a sore tooth.

Not him this is me, but in also "Moerse Dors"



But alas Jonty and his Boney are still a bit shaken and they “Donner sommer” down.





AI!! thees Youngsters.  ;D ;D

Well we goes on, but find a small drift, so I takes these “Mooi” photos.

Albie and the Aprillia



Jonty and the African Twin.



Bill and the Tenerre.



And of course me Allen and the African Twin.



See us old “Toppies” no how to go through these drifts as we make the biggest splashes. Hehe.
But “Ja” we is getting “Moerse” thirsty and the bakkie has gone on ahead on another route to get there so we push on, and even say hello to this train driver “Ou”

Bill and a section of the play pen.



We get there, and as you “Ous” no me, I really “Smaak” my cold ones, but hey Cous Bill actually beat me to them.
So we refresh ourselves with a cold one or two. Meanwhile the fun and laughter and “Gooites” is on the go.



Nope don’t ask me. I don’t know what it was about, sometimes a “Ou” wants to no other times its best not knowing. Hehe
The Boneys once again got pretty dirty getting here again.







We decides to go and have some tea and cookies and to talk some “Kak” and “Gooites” on the Highway bridge.
Now ever we is very well known or els the “Ous” in their cages just like us “Ous” as every now and again we will get a hooter and a wave.  ;D ;D




Lat time we was here, a bloody begger begged a smoke from Albie. I mean come on where the bloody hell do they come from.

Old Ernest is having a ball.



Think those cold ones and the tea and cookies is kicking in as Bill does this power thingy that his doing.
(Power Rangers) Hehe ;D ;D :imaposer: :imaposer:



Then it’s off to play some more in the Quarry.





Dam this is a cool photo. (Two Twins Toegether)



Bill is having a blast.



And so is we.Im taking it a bit casual as I had hurt my back a few days prior and its starting to pain.







Jonty goes up this path.



Only to “Skrik” and turn around and come flying back.



He tells me all about how scary that section is. Hehe



Meanwhile some other “Ou” and his family is also playing in the quarry.



Dam this possie is fun to ride in.

Now we is having this discussion about facing ones fears



Bill tunes Jonty to follow him, now Jonty aint a “Bang gat” so he “Goois” his Boney into gear and his off after Bill, I mean he says how can I let a old “Toppie” show me up”



He he .”Soos hulle se met die grysheid kom die wysheid” and walla we have this scenario.No Momentum or too little and we goes down.



I sit there laughing my “Gat” of at this.



Need to pick up the Bike.



Ah that’s better no no oh “Fuck”!!!



Ah shit!!! This sucks well okay need to pick up bike again.



Shit this aint working.



Check out the situation.



Dam I will try again. He he



Nope that did not work either as she’s lying to far over, but yip Albie and Bill go and help the “Areme Oukie” Boney all up again.



Me I was just sitting there hosing myself. Hehehe
Go for some refreshments and some good ball breaking and harassing towards Jonty
Ernest my mate by this time had got quite a few new names as the cold ones and such took hold. Oh yes Cous Bill had of course started this, at one stage he was Harry then Vincent and a few other names to boot then hell back to Ernest, but him being such a good “Ou” he took it all in and had a ball.

Meanwhile some Goose was “Moerse Dors” and had no problem swallowing my cold ones. Hehe



Bill took Albie out for a few pointers.









Meanwhile old Ernest jumped on the back of the Twin and me and him and the Twin went  gunning it all over the show, sometimes we was on the seat and sometimes we was not . Hehe (Bloody cold ones fault)
Tash was feeling in the mood to ride so Bill tuned her to take the Tenere and go for it, Huh and im the not so “Lekker” one they say, hell man she’s got a 850 Suz Box, but shit man it’s a road bike, dam I think those cold ones and other ”Gooites” had started to speak. Hehehehe



Well at least she was having a ball



But was bitching as she could not find the start ”Knoppie”, Bill was “Lagging” his arse of as he tuned her this is a kick start model, Bill being a gentleman tried to kick start it with her on the Boney.



He he no such luck.



Ok Bill tunes her you try it





Nope “Nada” so of she gets off while he holds onto his Boney for dear life. He he



One kick in the right position and she fires to life.



On she gets and “Goois” it into gear and takes a ride.
I think Bill was doing a lot of praying at that moment. HEHEHEHEHE



Mean whilst some of us was having a cold one and others some over “gooites”.



She survived and so did his Boney, so they decided to celebrate her and his bikes return. Hehe





Meanwhile some of us was relaxing and Tash decided to sit down and calm her nerves. Cant blame her she was on a . Wait for it, wait for it a Tenerre. He he



By this time a few other mates had rocked up.



AH Young Love.



This bugger was hitching a ride on Bills chin, but as he was not contributing to our supplies I took him of.



Well by this time we had had a few Sosaties and a couple of Wors dogs washed down with various beverages and the mud was a calling us. Me I decided to play photographer as by this time the back was bloody saw as hell.  No matter how many pain pills I “Gooied” down with cold ones or Tequila or Jack Daniels, the bloody pain would not go away. Huh!!! Really does not figure. Hehe
The Gooses took a “Trap” to the “Modder gat” so that the fun could begin.

Gooses at the “Modder gat”





Jonty. Checking it out.



Bill. Checking it out and discussing it with Shaun.



Bill decides to test it.







A happy “Ou” as he reaches the top.



Jonty in the meantime has decided to meet his nemesis. The one that almost drowned him and his Boney the previous time.
Albie and them watch in anticipation.



Aaah!!! He has listened well this one as he had asked me what he done wrong last time he tackled this section. Now he approaches it like he should and “Walla”





He has learned. The Honda swims through with no problems this time.
Meanwhile the fun continues, Ros and the plastic go down.

It’s a team effort as they pull the bike up. Hehe



Some “Ous” just look good on their Boneys.



And enjoy themselves whilst other “Ous” “Sukkel” to get to get their bikes up.



But they eventually do with a about time from me Goose. Hehehe
Shaun, Ros and Jonty just gaze at the bike. Ok maybe they was talking about something.  ;D ;D 



“Ja” another one of those don’t ask me questions. Hehehe
And another. Hehe Speak no evil. Krap my kop and a yahoo thingy as well.

Now the confidence or the “Fire Water” kicks in as Bill decides to take on this section.







But alas the Mud and water broke the speed and …



But Bill did try, whilst Ros was also playing in the Mud.





A gallant effort but sometimes we have to turn back.



But where others fail, others.



Also fail. Hehehehe   :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer: :biggrin: :biggrin: :imaposer:





Meanwhile the fairer sex looks on.



As well as the not so fairer sex.



But Yip a good time was had by us all as we headed back to my possie for a clean-up and a “Lekker”
Braai with a few cold ones  and such to round of the day.
Early next morning, and Bill is off to home.





Well that’s it guys and Gooses, hope you enjoyed the ride.
