Friday morning



Friday morning we met at the Garage at 07h30
BMWPE
Gunter
Tweetie (these 3 beeng the guys from PE)
 
AntonW
Mark Hardy
Giraffe
EttieneNXR
Go Girl
Crossed-up
Xt660R - me





We left at 08h00 and made our way to Darling to meet up with KLR , a new WD

The road to Koperfontein was sandy , a bit sandier that the chaps from PE expected.
Once on the Railway line track to Koperfontein , The same sandy hole claimed 4 victims , KLR , Tweetie , AntonW and Go Girl.

All minor falls.
After that it was flat taps to Koringberg and Piketberg and on to Pikanesekloof , Paleisheuwel rd.
Paleisheuwel rd was part of the green route.

Thanks so much PP and all the other guys who helped out!

It was my first ride out with the WD guys and I had a blast! I'll definitely be up-skilling and joining you guys again soon.

I've got some pics that I'll pull off my camera and burn for PP to distribute.

Glad to hear that its not too bad, just got to let it mend well. At least your neck is OK. Get well soon and let me know if you need any help fixing your bike. I have some stuff that will make the scratches on your plastics look good as new :thumleft:

The organisers have been thanked a number of times, but dont think they can be thanked enough. So thanks to you all, including leaders/sweepers, just everyone involved!!!!

Also a big thanks to the guys that gave me a hand in fixing my front tyre!!  At least catching up was fun!! :)
i will post a few pics later.

Thanks to PP and all for a great one!!!!

Damage update - I'm off to Durbanville Mediclinic-  the leg shows a spiral fracture, and with the help of plates and screws, I'll walk (read ride) normally in a month, or stay in a cast for 4 months....options....options...

Gee, Andy, making a simple turn on grass and brolke my ankle -- my binneste....sien ook 'n sielkundige -- was doing  little powerslide when the foot ended up between the gear lever and footpeg. Powerslide does not equal a simple turn at my skills level - thats really pushing the limits, even at 4.345 km/h ;D

Away we go - will update when back

 Oh - btw , hope the "rally" elements that crept in over the weekend dies a quick death - personally I find it hard to identify therewith as it undermines imho the integrity of respect for all and everything, which had so far been a hallmark of WD's.

This event would have been nothing if it wasn't for the fantastic turnout and participation of all the riders...  Its the riders, their attitude and camaraderie that makes the event.  The organizers merely organize facilities and draw the right people. :thumleft:   

Etienne, rus daai gewig en skouer.  Die laaste ding wat jy nodig het is gewrigte wat later moeilikheid gee...  Kom maak 'n draai sodra jy reg is vir jou helmet.

Eendstop - you should have joined us on the route.  You probably would have had less injuries, or at least worthwhile injuries  ???

WD events have never been "Rally"s. I think that the midnight revving started to tease PP a bit ;D I don't think that will become the norm though.

I took it with a smile when I woke, knowing the guys were enjoying themselves and knowing how kak they'd feel the next morning :biggrin: Why on earth some-one decided to get up at five 'o clock and rev an extremely asthmatic GS I don't know though. Couldn't sleep after that :-\
