No pics at all Snafu - lekker to meet you in da flesh


Thanks Andy660, you truly are a mother hen who wants all her chickies home safe - attendant with the sometimes brooding personality too  >:D :deal:


We had a great ride too - the closest moment of the day having the front tyre wash over that bloody irrigation black pipe - if it wasnt for speed saving our bacon, I know that Amanda and I would have cartwheeled nicely  :mwink:


Thanks to the crowd for the laughs - particularly at the water holes, and then also at that last bump which saw many a bike see its paw paw. It started with Sprocketbek, and ended with GogoGirl?

Too funny - Andy youre a leg' my man for organising this multi brand bike day - a greater collection of DSport bikes I dont think you could get on an informal ride. Paramed and Barry - you okes are legend for coming in the Mahinnn Mahinnn Mahinnnnnnnndraaaaaaaaaa  :biggrin: - your services were needed! And also to Wayne, for leading us ably up the trail. Thanks also for giving us permission to go ahead and get some fuel and shade which caused a certain mother hen to have her ruffles fleathered  >:D


We ended with 2x TW's, Andy on his Yammie 660 and the balance were Katoomers. Bittereinders, its a pity we didnt get a picture of that last hole right through the earth ending in China which could have resulted in serious injury... lucky for GGGirl huh  :o


We klapped the N7 at 165 all the way home (we caught and passed that VRod sitting at his 135 20clicks outside Malmesbury  :D), the forken pollen induced hayfever has my eyes at half mast swollen this morning.  Amazing ride! - thanks to all who pushed through.


 :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: - Imagine if Wes and Shamiel had children together - who would be the man/woman? Dead mince gives you stretch Wes?

Unfortunately no pics from me either - was too busy 'doing something else'   :P

Thanks to the organisers - especially Andy and the backup crew Brian and Barry.
Then a BIGGGG thanks to all who gave a helping hand every now and then when the red biatch struggled to get going. :'(
Especially the man himself Mr Camelman - shot brother I owe you one.

I had great fun out there - awesome route - would love to do it again..

That little ditch caught me out for sure. It had a diameter that was close to 21" and I was not sure there would be enough traction to lift the front wheel over.....so I approached with too much caution and then stalled the bike just when it straddled the ditch. My legs didn't want to grow fast enough.

And then GoGirl went and did something similar! Pic doesn't do justice to the ditch.

Working on the other pics, patience please.
