I had to get to PE, to thank my team. So I left Cape Town on my trusted steed.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

The road was fun, but then I got hungry. Oxtail was the treat

I found a dam, it wasn't full.
Then I I found a wee job, stuck in my tyre.
I summoned help, bead was tighter than a divorce lawyer.

There was a day visitor, didn't stay long.
The night fell, it was dark.
I checked my lighting, spots are more better

The road was long
The road was damaged
The place was occupied
There was angry weather

I visited a coffee shop in PE, there was a Mun in the Ro
I took the road less traveled upon my return.
There is a place where cocks get combed.

I became thirsty, in a town with a royal presence
I arrived in a town with more Willow, I was once again thirsty

I found a dam, it wasn't full.
Then I I found a wee job, stuck in my tyre.
I summoned help, bead was tighter than a divorce lawyer.
I got help from a Gavin and a dankie Jan.

So a braai was scheduled for Cocky's arrival

He called about a papwiel.

No problem. We took bead tools compressor and stuff and went over the Swartberg pass to go help

After all it is only 52km to where he was stranded.

Got the bead of and then Cocky's 'new' tube held no air.

Decision time. Ride back and fix the wheel or ride back and get a trailer

We went for the trailer. Back over the pass. By now it was dark.

Back to him over the pass.

Martina het intussen gebraai. She always does that.

Loaded the bike and back to Prince Albert at a very slow pace.

We got home at 01:30 in the morning. Screw any curfews.

My girl was sleeping already. Food was cooked.

We ate while half asleep. Had some drinks and tipped

Next day. Patched the tubes (old and new).

Lesson. Check your spare tubes regularly. It had a half cm tear from chafing against the crash bar bag over a long time.

En daar gaan Cocky.

Thanks it was lekker to see you.

@ratrap .Thanks for the use of your trailer and the help with the wheel, Gavin.

A simple braai sometimes turns into something completely different.

Thank Cappy, I'm not good at this whole RR thing, more a drinker and noise maker type.

Tubliss anyone? :pot:

Nice concise report, to the point with just a tad too much driving under the influence. :pot: :pot:

Lots of trouble Jan went to to help the Cock. :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:
