My thoughts after the 1150 GS Bash
« on: November 01, 2021, 01:27:01 pm »
I had the idea in my head to join the 1150GS bash this weekend at Abrahamskraal, Prince Albert.  I enjoyed myself thouroughly. I have been part of this group a long time and the whapp group for awhile now and enjoy the conversation and people on the group. Now my passion is boxers and more specific airheads and apart from one has attended all of the airhead GS gatherings from the start. (Most years being the guy who travels furthest). This weekend i had an interesting epiphany, most likely to me only... The current 1150 owners/riders has taken the place of the airhead GS riders! A thing that i always enjoy about airhead gatherings is meeting total different people from total different walks of life but with the same passion. Non of the 'want to show off the best' because i have more!. You will find for most part a raw passion for the bike and the adventure it entails. This is the place to find guys thats new to the sport. Youngsters and older oaks. The bike supplies an affordable solution to adventure. A Trustworthy, Lots of spares and advice, Learn yourselve, Capable solution... to adventure. I found the same type, down to a T at the 1150 bash. Sad to say airheads's time for this is past. Youngsters can't afford them. We, the core of that generation is aging. Gone is the days of cheap, camping bashes! I will stay part of this fraternity forever but times does go by!

So while writing this I'm continuing my adventure, waiting for a plane, cause my 1150 broke down far from home...

Sit en kry ek sommer heimwee.
 
Jy is n man van min woorde "De Jaager"(@Welsh in his Welsh Accent). Maar as jy praat kan mens luister.

Was awesome om jou te ontmoet en dankie dat jy al die pad afgekom het vir die bash! Sal jou verseker volgende jaar 'n kom raak kuier daar bo!

Dalk goedkoper om 'n AT bęsh te reël maar ou @BikerJan het nie baie sukses destyds gehad nie.  Nee, ek lees maar wat lyk na 'n heel "serebrale" byeenkoms.  Klink vir my na my tipe ding.

Jammer om te hoor.  Kan mens nie daai 1150 regmaak met bloudraad en tang soos 'n G/S nie?

Het jy toe reg gekom met 'n lift vir jou bike - iewers 'n fred daaroor gesien?

Moes 'n ernstige breek wees as jy dit nie kon regmaak nie.

Sterkte
Grey Haired Riders Don't get that way from pure luck!

Thnx Matewis, na reg is jou 'quote' 'n aanduiding dat jou passie die vlammetjie is wat ons almal se kerse aan die brand hou.

Leon nee my HES sensor op crank het gegroet, dit was my eie skuld, ek kon nie die xstra ene regkry betyds om saam te ry en ek het dit verwag! So eksou uit tyd hardloop as ek een moes source, Ek moet Donderdag tuis wees. Courier diens baie behulpsaam, hulle laai hom die week nog af in Centurion.

Ek smile baie dankbaar, Fiets het na 2000km se trip 600m van my suster se huis gaan staan in Danabaai. Ek's werklik baie dankbaar
