Thanks Blazes for yet another fun and relaxing ride. I thouroughly enjoyed myself hanging by the back and watching the thrills and spills up front.

Have upgraded Malibu to "one of the boys" status as the result of her very good riding skills  :biggrin:

Also impressed by Misty who toughed it out the whole way  :thumleft: Considering that she rode a heavier bike than me with road tyres in those muddy / gravel conditions I think she did very well. Like I said before, riding the DR sometimes feels like cheating >:D

Thanks to everyone for a great day out.
Thank You Kykdaar Great to see you are having loads of fun on the DR :thumleft:

Thanks for another great ride organized blazes!  :thumleft: Glad to see my piece of land doing so well and that there have been no further land claims to date!  :ricky:

I really enjoyed myself – can you believe even the mud monster  ;) – and thanks Kykdaar for that vote of confidence – really appreciated! Great riding with all you gals and girls as always.  :)

A flat, is that what you call it Mal… I thought I heard something about a nail and keeping to the beat…   >:D

Allways a pleasure " T "--- Keeping a eye on your PLOT for you  :peepwall:

Thanks again, Blazes, for another great ride. You're a hard fellow to catch on that husky of yours.

Malibu, you go girl, that's the way a KLR supposed to be ridden!
Great to have you guys come all the way to join in on the ride ;) Appreciated.

Thanks Blazes for organizing such a great ride, I am very glad I did not miss this one, even if I did have to run off before the ride was finished.  :thumleft: And I must agree with Cracker, I could not get close enough to the Husky to see what it looks like in motion....  ;D

Thanks Blazes for a lekker rustige ride  :thumleft: Had lots of fun, and I'm loving my bike more and more every day  :biggrin: Need to spend lots more time like that in the saddle.
Good to see some familiar faces and meet some new people. Sorry I couldn't stay for lunch - will definitely be more sociable next time.
Hope your knee is feeling better Red. 
Can't wait for the next one  :mwink:

Looks a good day out all round Blazes.

I also need to learn to ride my 2 x 600cc's at the same time!

Glad Misty stayed away from her plot and even that mud didn't claim her, she impresses me every time

Thanks Blazes, it was a wonderful "clearing the cobwebs" ride.  I drowned them all.... :biggrin: :biggrin:

The knee is just fine as long as I don't do any twisting type of movement.  The bike is looking a bit sad.  Droopy indicators, missing mirror.   :P :P  I will make a plan to go and buy the bits and pieces sometime this week.

When I left you guys I went to Rhino Park to play on the beach.  There is also a nice 20km enduro loop...  Entry fee is R20.00 per person, R30.00 to go on the tracks and for free if you go to the tented restaurant.  Maybe include in a future ride around your house???
