My hart kom affie plaas, Waar die Wind en die Son en die Stilte my speelmaats was.

Everybody falls off. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

Add some gas to doubt, to get the rear to go around a turn.

This makes me want to ride!! :ricky:

Okay, still from SWA and now in Texas.  Here are a few pix of where I like to ride.  This is the problem, 97% of Texas is privately owned and the rest is where one can run on gravel.  To get to the gravel is about 12 - 15 hours of slab.  So I 'trailer' my bike there and then do some riding.  This trip we went 2 up into the backside of Big Bend Ranch State park.  Camp base   2928'13.28"N 10357'28.08"W

This was my 'attire' for the 2 up job. :ricky:



The young lady had my 'staaldak' on and some mtb knee and elbow protection.  She did not like the 'staaldak' headdress!! :imaposer:  This is where we had to park the bike ( 2923'6.82"N  10353'0.62"W)  and hike 1 hour down and back to the 2 tallest waterfall in Texas ( 2922'46.83"N  10353'2.89"W).


On one or two occasions I asked her to rather walk up the hill, rather than having me let us both eat gravel.  On this run I actually stopped about 30% up the run, Sandra got off and I tried all I can to take-off from there.  No go, spun a rut out of the twee spoor.  Had to roll the bike back and then make a go of it.  Yes, the front sprocket is a 14T.  Need to get a larger one on the back. :laughing4:


And when you are on the top it looks like this..... :thumleft:


...and like so... :ricky:
