A Day ------Ooooooh to be Young Again.
« on: October 18, 2009, 07:18:17 pm »
After some good rains again--I decided to get a few friends--Old and New together and jus go out for a days FUN.  ;D

Sometimes we are just too busy riding or on Tour or going through the motions of LIFE itself.

Today Kykdaar -- Hoofseun--Jules--Barney and myself went for what i would say was one of the most FUN Rides i have had in a long time. Had the Blood Pumping through my Old veins and just enjoyed the Ride and company to the fullest--A Day i wished would go on forever.  Thank's Guy's You ALL made my day and i felt like i was 20 again ::)

We were able to go and test a few bikes amongst ourselves and make up our OWN opinions about the Bikes and NOT what the Manufacturer Tries to SELL You.

We had a KTM 690 e with the compliments from Biking Accessories.
My 450 TE Husky
My 610 TE Husky
Kykdaar had his Trusty DR 650 R.
Hoofseun had a Honda 450 x for the day.

We all changed bikes and rode most of the day --swopping them and just as Jules would say---LEKKER SPEEL HEELDAG  :mwink:

Something we forget to do --Is PLAY.

The 690 e--Wicked >:D



My Husky 450 TE--Kick arse-and light like a feather.



My Husky 610--Hell i need to still do 900 km's befor i can ride her HARD ::)



Kykdaar on the 450 Husky



Hoofseun on the 450 Honda --low flying.  :o



Jules on the HOOLIGAN 690e KTM  :thumleft:

 

Jules on the Honda 450.




Hoofseun getting some Air-Time in.




Hoofseun --sliding. ???






Jules on the 690--we had to wrestle this bike away from him at one time. ::)




Old man being chased by youth  ::)



Hoofseun demostrating how to wheelie  ;)



And KYKDAAR wanted a lesson in how to Wheelie-- :o Hoofseun gave him a lesson and had him up and going in Less than 30 seconds ::)



I even got give Kykdaars 650 Dr some Air-Time.

Our opinions concerning the bikes  ::) Well Best we keep that to ourselves as we ended up just having a Jol and Wht a Pity the day had to come to a End :(

Thank's all post pics if you have  :mwink:

Heeltyd Speeltyd!

What a Day!

As Blazes said it was just HEAPS of fun, was good to test bikes back to back and get some good saddle time on varied terrain and on a few different bikes.


All I can say is I see Orange in my future!




Thanks again to Blazes for the bikes and ride and thanks to my mates for the good company

You will definately Not be sorry ;) He is a very good instructor and one can only gain so much by what he has to offer.
Not sorry i went on a course with him--was a eye opener for me and i will definately go back every year from now on.

I have never laughed so much in a long time, it was great fun, a big thanks to Blazes for arranging the ride out and opportunity to get to ride the different bikes.

I know which one I want next, and it has to do with arriving in some form of rested state on the other side whilst having greaaat fun...

Some pics, the mud monster early on, and everyone went through without hassles

Jules leading the pack on the Husky TE450



and Kykdaar on his heels



Then it was Barnie’s turn on the Husky Te450 through some water



Kykdaar trailing showing that the Suzuki can do the same, just much more comfortable



Then we found a jump and Jules approaching fast on the 450x



And taking off



And another jump with some water where the landing is to be

Jules putting the Husky through its passes



Kykdaar lifting off on the KTM



And Barnie doing some “scrubbing” or is it rather old style jumping?



And Kykdaar’s bike doing some flying with Blazes piloting it, and he says he is an “ou man” huh???



Thanxs again, great weather, good companionship and just heaps of fun!!!

For my type of riding i do basically low down and mid range --Purrfect--know i made the right choice--she is still running in and one just knows that there is much more to come when you let the Tiger out in her :mwink:
