Monthly offroad breakfast run - 15 October 2006
« on: October 15, 2006, 08:09:18 pm »
So let me be the first.........

Thanks Kalahari Ben for a great outing. If I am correct there was about 35 bikes in all, although the numbers seemed to grow and shrink along the way.

Meeting at Touratech in Centurion for a welcome cup of coffee and a muffin (the eating kind Welsh)  :)





With Leo leading there wasn't too much of a chance to take photo's but I did manage a few, when us mere biking mortals caught up with him at Breedt's Nek.  :shock:



















Ending at Tant Malies for some very welcome sustenance







Good ride, good food, good company. What more could you ask for!  :D  :D  :D

Looks like it was a good outing, I see I am getting a bad reputation gunner, anyway hope to get the GSV back this week, cannot wait I am badly in withdrawl, must have been warm out there today.

Just to keep the reputation intact, just found this by accident, apt for your muffin quip. The lady in question was Fanny Craddock, the first ever I think of the TV Chef,s and yes her hubby,s name was Johnny!

Thanks Gunner. Great report & pics

Yea it was a good run. Had lots of fun. We definately need some rain up here, as the dust was a bit k@k, but for the rest fun, fun fun.

Rode to Louis Trichards yesterday afternoon, this part of the world if definately a lot greener than down in Gauteng, suppose it's these mountains here that bring the moisture.

Slept at the Inn on Louis Trichards last night, like a little piece of paradize, way up in the mountain with zero cellphone coverage, so spend a boring night in my hotel room not able to visit this nuthouse  :roll:  :roll:

OK Hijack off.

Hey thanks all for participating in the run - thanks especially to Leo for leading the route, and Gunner for the ride report.

As it goes in life, one should learn (or at least try to learn) from all experiences in life - I have definately learnt a couple of things from Sunday's ride, and will definately consider for next month's ride.

I hope all had fun - personally I think it was a great route, and the braai afterwards was very well presented by the Tan' Malie staff.

Any ideas / preferences for next month's ride?

Thanks everyone for n great ride. Adventurer, Gunner, Leo, Doringboom and Kalahariben nice meeting you and all the rest who's names I forgot  :oops:

I had to go to Pretoria on business and luckily this coincided with the monthly run. Here are a few of my memories:

Meeting for coffee/muffins and tyre deflation



As mentioned earlier there was no time for stopping along the way so my next pic was on Breedtsnek.





Incidents I know of was one bee sting victim and one Guinea Fowl that lost against Leo's light guard.



Adventurer and Doringboom taking control of the braai, job well done gents!



After another 1600km weekend I got home with one very dirty bike to accompany my satisfied smile.

May the bridges I burn light the way...

Thank you everybody. I also enjoyed the ride, despite the somewhat dusty conditions, but I guess mud or ice whould have been much worse. It was nice to meet the real persons behind some of the Forum names.

Herewith my addition to the photo collection:

Hey...who's is that toit Toiger???  I'd love to know what he/she thought about it!!
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
