Eastrand outride
« on: July 12, 2009, 04:03:02 pm »
I heard from Manic that you can ride from Elspark Spur out to Heidelberg. The wife and myself decided that we wanted to go have a looksee. So we ended up riding to Heidelberg on dirt, tar to the Engen on the R59, and dirt back to JHB. Did bout 140km.

Thanx Manic, now I know of lots of playground on my back stoep.

1. Us and our trusty steeds,
2. Mine dump burst open and flooded the mielies,
3. Tunnel under R550 towards Glenroy station,
4. Who says only BM riders does it Meerkat style? China bikes does it just as well!!!!!!
Don't dress for the ride, dress for the fall!

This Bigboy really astonishes more every day! I raised the handle bars, added a Kappa screen I sourced and voila, my wife rides like a pro. It is low, lots of low down grunt, 21" and 18" wheels and lots of clearance. I know it doesn't look like it, but believe me it does, and it goes 105km/h on the GPS on the highway!! With the wind from behind!  :ricky:

Ideal cheap learn to ride bike!!

Leke trip LX!
Roenel jy doen die "meerkat" goed hoor, oppas as BMW jou sien, dan recruit hulle jou dalk!  :imaposer:
May the WORS be WITH you!
