I don't think it goes totally about the fact that you are a noob or lady... more around the "rustigheid" of the ride?  or have I got it all wrong - Blazes?

Glad to here all had fun. I hope everyone realises the time and trouble that Blaze put into marking out the route as well as painting all the potential hazards and turns, I also hope someone bought him a beer or two for his troubles.

Blazes, thanks again for the ride on Saturday. I need to get out to the Waterberg with you sometime soon!  :thumleft:

Hi Catchy--Thank's for helping out on Saturday--was also great to get to know you a little better :thumleft:

Must say that your Tenere is one awesome scoot and the sound of the aftremarket pipes are definately not too shabby neither. Waterberg--sounds like a cool plan. Just a asmall group :mwink:

As Puddles rightly puts it--Rustig--thats what it is all about Mallies--You and i have travelled many a Kilometer on all types and weather conditions through this lekka country of ours--Still Plenty to come :thumleft:

Some pictures from my side, but first the most important aspects:

a)   Blazes - thnxs for organising the ride.
b)   Malibu – thanxs for leading us on an exciting “flying” lap around Blazes’ backyard.  It is just that “GPS thingy”

Now some photos – gathering around at the start with Blazes giving guidelines for good group riding as well as what to expect.








The “technical” ride group getting side-tracked at the “sambok bar” skills challenge track or is it actually a kiddies track?


Oops, I was not suppose to get this part





The man with the “eyes”.  He is looking for a link-up, whatever that means, so please make his day and give some thought to him when there are some lonely ladies out there????




Some more “skills track fun” until I got a puncture and got it fixed with the help of “ou (alleenloop) hond”









Two plugs later and we were on the road again.



This dog’s lip reminded me of the dog in the Toyota advert, the one that talks.



After lunch it was off to a detour route back home...



Puddles, not sure if she is actually standing??


Ou (alleenloop) hond...



Puddles, and she can ride...



Thnxs again for all, it was great fun as always!

Malibu is never LOST - just took a rather delightful detour!   :mwink:

Thanks for my guys putting up with the finger in the air indicating a 180 spin... but it was a good ride... except everytime I asked if the pace was ok, they commented on the slowness.... dunno - 90 - 100 over some of that stuff seemed a bit fast for the bigger bikes, but then what do I know, I never look at the speedo - Hoofseun says it's not there for that!   :biggrin:

Blazes, thanks for the opportunity to use your GPS, was a great learning curve for me!   :thumleft:  and for everything else too!
