“Rustige” Ladies Breakfast run
« on: June 28, 2009, 07:48:58 pm »
We would have been 6+ riders but were unfortunately reduced to only 3 due to flu  :sad4:  or other legitimate reasons.  So Li, Dakota & myself met up at the Total garage, cnr Malibongwe & Witkoppen, at 8:30 on a rather “crisp” Sunday morning.  I had to get there from Pretoria so left a bit earlier … brrr … going through Centurion my bikes temp gage started flashing at 2 degrees.  “Warning … warning … you are about to freeze your butt off”.  Ok, my butt was well covered, all warm & cosy.  As for my finger tips … eina pain, they would have fallen off if I bumped them against anything. I got there before the others so had time for a quick cuppa coffee to help defrost.  By the time we left the temp was already up to about 7 degrees.

We road through to Harties & had a lekker Wimpy breakfast.



Once our tummies were full we set off to browse the flea market.



Check this excellent masterpiece … it even has a chain & when you turn it, you can see the “pistons” going up & down.  The guy says it took him more than a year to complete, working at it about 3 hours per day.



Had something to drink at Chameleon Junction (I think is the place’s name) and then went for a ride across the bridge & eventually home.
Quick stop on the bride to check the view … uuuggghhh … the smell was not too pleasant  :fart:





 Thanx Li & D for a rustige, relaxing outing  :biggrin:

Thanks Li and Puddles,

Even though I had the flu I didn't want to stay in bed when the sun was out... thanks for the nice day.  :thumleft:

It must have been chilly, looks like you were dressed up like eskimos!
Don’t worry about things that aren’t, worry about things that are and your decisions are so much easier to make!

Considering Puddles was in a cage accident the night before, she still went out riding with the mates - this is commitment!
