A Westcoast visit.
« on: November 07, 2021, 04:06:37 pm »
It's been a while now that I have noticed the fences of our small farm is squeezing down on me!!! I had to get out the gate for a while. Told the powers in charge of me I would not be here the following week. Her answer was " who is going to ride with you?" My answer was I thought Me, Myself and I is enough people to ride with me!! ;) :lol8:
It seems "we" were enough people so I got handed my pass card!! I was  not allowed to pack my camping gear, eish this woman knows me too well!!! ;) ;D :lol8:
The saterday I wanted to leave there was a very strong westerly wind blowing and rain the whole day. Sidecars and wind are not friends unless it is from behind and this wind would have been slap bam head on!!

Sunday I got to leave ready and packed!! :thumleft:
Only stopped for fuel twice and once before Gouda for a leak.
Had a great visit at the mayor of Gouda and his misses VaalBaas and VaalNooi. Arrived late afternoon on JJR's farm north of Porterville. We went for a drive to look at his wheat harvest, he started his sunday afternoon drive vehicle for me his 19voertsek Allis-Chalmers perfectly restored and starts on the first swing!! :drif: :drif:
He even has a couple of kameeldoring trees on his farm for sure something rare in this area!!!! :thumleft:
A braai was on the cards and his grilled bread found my special place on my tongue twice!! :thumleft: :drif: :drif: :drif:

Monday morning I was woken up by one of the dogs, my favorite one of the bunch SPCA special!! :thumleft:
I was in no hurry went with to take the one combine front to where it is needed pulled out the platsnyer so it can be pulled to another farm and then coffee and a rusk and got on a shortcut dirt road to Piketberg. Stopped at a friends place of work,but he was out to a field service for the day. Called him up and was instructed to not pass him by where he is at the farm next to Leopoldville. Rode/drove what does one do with a sidecar? :-\
Rode along the Verlorenvlei which is full after good rains this winter. Stopped at where my friend is working for the day and sat there on the bike and chatted for an hour and a half!! It was a good visit. Just after Leopoldville I had to have a snack on my way to Lambertsbay.
One of the visits I had to do on this trip was to visit a brother and sister in the old age home. They are both in the sickbay. I was so happy when I was allowed in with all the covid rules or maybe the matron saw me on my crutches and thought aaaaah another paying customer!!! ;) ;D :lol8:

Riding away from Lambertsbay I felt I did good today!! The old people really enjoyed the visit and I was asked to please come again. :thumleft:
Took the dirtroad to Doringbay , then Strandfontein and then my friends farm just before Lutzville. We have not seen each other since 2015 and we had a lot to catch up although we speak over the phone almost weekly.

Daar is niks wat 'n mens se kop so skoonmaak nie soos 'n solo rit nie.  Lekker dat jy weer daar in jou grootraakwęreld kon gaan kuier Chris. Hoop nie dis weer so lank voor ons iets van jou ritte lees nie.  :thumleft:

Hoe maak daai syspan so op die langpad?  Moeilik om te ry? Dink jy daar is meer slytasie op die fiets (ratkas, dryfas, bande ens)?

Maar jy ry... met die wind in jou gesig. Dis wat tel. Na 18 000km kan ek nog nie sin maak daaruit nie, maar dis lekker.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !

Ek kan glo dis nie net 'n fiets wat mens ry nie Chris.  Maak 'n ou seker lekker moeg.  Maar jy het darem 'n verskeidenheid, um, kragwoorde daar oppie Weskus geleer om hom in toom te hou.  :lol8:

My friend and I ride around his farm, look at his grapes and seed beans and talk mostly about what he still want to plant next year and the years after.
I stay another night and then move to the next farm and another friend. Some gates to open and close and wheat harvest to look at. Not great this year like all of them mostly in Namaqwaland, but at least they will harvest something.

Chris dis lekker om weer rr van jou te sien. Baie bly jy is weer terug in die saal. Ons kom nou net terug van lekker 8 weke toer , maar nie met die motorfietse nie, ons het met die toerbus gery. Eers het ons gaan blomme lyk in Namaqualand, deur Sederberge en toe  in kaap gaan draai. Daarna het ons so rus rus al teen die weskus terug getoer huis toe. Nou verlang ek sommer weer as ek jou foto's so kyk.
Life is great LIVE IT!!
