Lito, Scribble and Masehare ride Tygervalley

A few minutes after Macduff, Mango and Sotkop departed, Masehare arrived and we went through the slalom routines again

but they soon tired of this and Lito showed them the more ADVENTUROUS things, beginning with the up down climb and then progressed to some even more ADVENTUROUS thingz with steeper inclines and stuff:













 :wink:



All three riders seemed to take these in their stride.
They then went foth to get some liquidity and some interesting riding.

The aftermath: After the Tygerberg technicals, these three musketeers went playing in the sand while others attended KiLerSA's mechanical workshop. Lito (right) got dehydrated, Masehare (middle) got stuck in the sand and was pulled out by the KTM while Scribble brought home two minor sanddunes in his boots. Then they all fell into KiLer's water feature.

Thanks to everone involved: Lito, for the wonderful riding tips and forcing sludge into my front tube, KiLer for showing us some spannering tricks, the wors and the beer and everybody else for pitching, having fun and telling some good stories. Especially Scribble who has some nice travelling tales.

Thanks for the great trip guys. Seems like my battery chose the worst place to die. Couldn't even get it charged at home. :oops:

Masehare, did you get a replacement yet? Very interested to hear what happens. Thanks boet. Its amazing really. I nearly rode my Dakars battery DRY, all the water was gone, I refilled it, and it was AOK. Man did I get a good bike or what? Very lucky I must admit

Yup, replacement's on my desk. R480 at Hamman Motorrad or R285 at Trac Mac. I recon an Exide battery in a BMW box isn't worth an extra R200.... Anyway, we tried to refill + charge the old battery, but it just boiled and never took any charge. Someone once said that you need to replace a battery every year anyway. Any truth in that?

Big difference in price. I dont think theres an ounce of truth in that ruhmah about changing batteries once a year. Crap.

But glad to hear youre back on the road! Sweet 8)

Yes - Hein is the unsung hero. Did we tell you that when I phoned him to say HEY - come pick us up in the 4x4 (the KTM was sukkeling to pull out the Bmw out of the sand - until we realised that the dern Bimmer was in gear and being dragged!!!!)  - that Hein got the 4x4 up, fixed a puncture with Sot help I believe - and packed a coolbox with tons of ice and beers?

MAN, what a gesture!!!!!! Hein,  youre da best mate!!!!  :cheers:  :cheers:  :cheers:  :cheers:  :thumbleft:  :thumbright:  :angel9:

the odd hairy moment,
 very cool bunch of guys and girl
i definately need to grow my brass a lot

i really think live in the outdoors should have his name changed to lunatic in the outdoors :shock:  :D  :D  :D  :D
i surprised that bike of his doesnt bottm out all the time carrying the brass in his pants and that with a stuffed ankle

what a jol as you can see smiles all round
100 points to the man who relocated his fish and supplied the parched people with cold beer
your hospitality is to be aspired to
masehare might put some pictures in of him and lito getting agricultural
ie plowing a trench under the guise of towing a bike i think its the farming blood showing through  :lol:  :lol:

i would like to say shot bru to lito for taking the time to show me all the stuff  i definately learnt a bunch  :)
