« on: September 27, 2006, 09:27:13 pm »
I have plenty of pics so I will upload them in stages (I have to work to)

Meeting at Blockhouse


At Heilbron after some dirt roads


20 Bikes, 20 okes, 15 GPS's and 10 maps, and still we had to ask for directions

On the way to Ficksburg

Some pics of the campsite and the skills challenge







Very Big Pig down


Some of the forum members


Thats all for now, I will upload the rest later.
O...no matter what you might hear, I DID NOT get lost twice
I've been on the Jameson diet for a week, so far I've lost 7 days....

Kewl Poppi.

No you did not get lost twice, that was the SLANGBYT telling you that. Seriously, nice to have met you and ride with you, why don't you join the ride on Sunday to the rock, it will be a nice ride, we can jaag again and listen to the people moan as we overtake them.....

Thats what happens when you have more than one map loaded on the GPS and you don't zoom enough, first time I have ever seen Leo taking the wrong road. On the other hand though, it was an awesome little two track road at the end....

Us okes did not get lost! We merely looked at alternative routes, we saw the tar option but thought there was a better route, this farmer was very helpful, he drove with us to the tar road, was probably glad to get us off his farm. :D  :D
The caption that you did not see under that pic..."So tell me manne, are you guys going to the GS Challenge? I have a Yamaha TW 200 and would smaak to join you okes..."
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
