The last hill before you drop down to Oasis across the valley is a mean one. Badly curregated and most of it was done in first. It was hard on me and the bike. Top of the hill it boiled.

Rest stop before descending to Oasis. Another landing we could walk away from, so a good one. Lyn took it all in her stride.

Well done.

Lekker - julle moet dit geniet.

Moet se ek het nogal gesmile toe ek Lynn en die sambreel sien.  Eerste gedagte was hoe julle op die N2 ry en dit sous vd reen en Lynn het die sambreel oop  :imaposer:

Maar ek moet se - dis nogal 'n goeie idee vd son.

Lekker man.  Almal is gaande oor die sambreel, ek ook.  Dit maak sin om die son weg te hou as daar nie 'n skadu boom naby is nie.   :thumleft:

Sal later graag wil uitvind oor die bike wat so effe gestress het, maar ons sal later praat, geniet solank julle trip. 

Ek hou van die sambreel idee. Gelukkig het ek dit nog nie nodig gehad met my Yamaha nie :imaposer:

Sou die sambreel en die regte briek nie lekker gewerk het hier nie?   :eek7: :lol8:   :imaposer:

Jy kon maar net die olie hoor roggel deur die sisteem. Gewoonlik hardloop temp op 5 bars. Met die sidecar af en toe op ses en teen daai bult die eerste keer sewe bars geslaan. Toe rus ek hom maar bietjie en hoor hoe roggel hy
