The Ct guy's have just confirmed the braai for Sat the 27th October.  Day 1  gauteng to Douglas on tar .   Day 2   tar and about 150km of gravel . Sleep in Calvinia.   Day 3   cut across the karoo on the R355 and stop for brunch at the pedestal.  Once in Ceres the throttle opens and i head for the braai in belville . Depart 28th and take a slow gravel trip back to gauteng over 4 days . Back at work on the 1st November.

Now here's a thing ....If you had kept ole Big Bertha for a little while longer , I would have paid you to ride her down for me  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:
 Almost got the boss to agree, that we really needed a second scoot in the garage. You would also have been invited to the 1150 MEGA BASH at Abrahamskraal on the 28th October where all the serious, hard core, cool, adventure riders will be gathering.

Ahhh well ....you win some and you loose some  :biggrin: :biggrin:

Enjoy your trip  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Looks like my 19 year old son (Pissboot)has decided that he wants to ride through the karoo once again with his dad.  He has also requested that we do the hell and biviaanskloof . He has also requested that we go past the old turd to see if the dog will baptize him again.  Yes yes yes there are guy's with ball's as big as my fathers  :biggrin: :biggrin:

I'm going down for the "R1150GSA Bash" in Abramskraal. Going to do "Die Hel" on Saturday and riding out towards Baviaans on the Sunday.
I want to do Baviaans with the sidecar but need a riding buddy for that.
