Crossed Up...respek for riding yer TW200 like it was stolen...to the last man standing :thumleft: Nivea ,as we know, is a bit odd & blasted the borrowed TW200 around .....& managed to get...imho...the best pic of the ride! :deal: Calender boy gets it right again...

Stevho....you're a big lad...did you help pick up my bike with one hand mate? :o The swelling in my knee is going down nicely ::)

This was sure a test of endurance in terms of concentration & focus, mechanical issues, skills levels, fitness & plain old...hell i'm tired already! Maybe to to much of the same thing for some....for others not enough. A great leveler for all of us in many ways & it was great to ride with all of you :thumleft:
Could i suggest a gravel ride next time...this time in the mountain area around Picketberg, Aurora & Eendekuil.... :drif:

Thanks for organising the ride Mr XT660! Nice seeing you all again and nice meeting some new people.

Tx also for everyone that took pictures.

I really did enjoy the ride - can't wait for the next one. Unfortunately have no pics to show, except for the dirty bike at home and the same bike two hours later.

Until next time.

Okay, i made it home!
Have to thank everybody who helped and gave advice after my fall...  :thumleft:

The only foto's i've got is that of my hand that show  that it is broken  :eek7:
So -  i'm in in a cast and off the bike for 4 weeks.   :(  :'(
Dont know the damage to the bike yet, but will keep you up to date on that one.


Methinks we should pop around to yer pub mate & buy a few drinks to help pay for that hand! lol

The question was asked wether it is appropriate to post pics of someone having a spill. I say certainly. You can learn from somebody else's mistake without you having to make that mistake yourself. I will demonstrate that statement later.

Some of the noobs could have avoided problems at the watercrossing if they watched the lines previous guys took. (But thanks for the entertainment provided).

And GO GIRL, allow me to correct the indiscreet picture I posted (not that you complained!):

And to Snafu, even with a babbelaas you make a pretty picture.
Hope this makes amends, but of course we can discuss it over a beer:
