Mooi paaie om te verken in daai geweste!! Net jammer oor die droogte. :thumleft: :(

Chris, dis verskriklik droog.  Dis hartseer om die diere so maer te sien.  Ek is al meer as 30 jaar in die Oos Kaap, ek het die wereld nog nie so gesien nie.  Riviere wat altyd water gehad het is nou kurkdroog. 
Ons was so 2 weke terug op 'n trip deur die Karoo, dis nog erger daar.  Ek wil nie weet hoe lyk die noorde van die Karoo nie.  Ons land kort dringend reent.   :deal:

Thank you for your report. Your wife's bike looks like a Honda 250. If so, I have two questions. 1 Where did you get the crash bars, and can I get  close up pic,s from a few angles with mounting points. 2 Do you have a washable airfilter in there, if yes did you get it at Honda. Thank you in advance
I would rather fall a thousand times, and keep riding, than to stop riding and never fall

Good day all.

Yep – as Vis said – it was a great event – the proof is in the pudding  and the event has been booked for next year already and a spit will be on offer.  Plan ahead and make sure that you join us - the 2nd weekend in November.

I want to compliment the staff of OTR – the food was “uit die boonste gestoeltes”. 

Difflock kept me informed during the day where they are and I think he brought 7 friends with.  The Scatterlings from EL were 15 people if I am not mistaken and the G.Stown guys also came in their numbers.  Thanks to you all.

Pictures to follow.

Kan jy glo, tyd staan nie stil nie.  Ja Louis, dis erg op die wereld so droog te sien.  Ons kan maar net bid vir die arme boere, maar as dit so aangaan gaan hulle nie die enigste wees wat gaan suffer nie.

Yip, it is the CRF 250 L.  Crash bars were bought from ChrisL from Dustriders here on the forum. 
Washable air filter were obtained from Loopsoosstroop here on the forum who imported them from over seas, where exactly I am not sure. 
Will take pics of the crash bars and post them here.   :thumleft:
