Grandpa run - 12 Aug 06
« on: August 14, 2006, 12:46:21 pm »
Friend of mine recently became a grand dad, and to celebrate the event he organized an "Oupa Run" for outoppies on mostly BMW's.

Was invited along...........never need a second excuse to go for a ride  :D

(No he's much older than me............. :D )

These guys don't do the offroad thing yet, am planning an introductory thing for them within the next few weeks.... :D .they all agreed after a few cold ones  :wink:



Spot the odd one out.............. :wink:



........wonder how it will handle the dirt??



This is what 1 year old GS's look that has never been travelled on gravel  :cry:







Our route took us north towards Bela Bela (Warmbaths)



where we stopped at the local O'Hagan's



.......not sure what happened here.......



.......all this drinking and driving we eventually ended up "Tussen treine op 'n stasie"  :D
 




Oupa Archie.......



Our last drink was had at Upperdeck



...........and on the way back home I rode over Skurwe Berg, as my bike can't go on a ride without doing some dirt......... :D  :D



Thanks Oupa Archie........hope your grandson will be a big biker one day!  :wink:
