Nice one guys & gals. Sorry I missed this one with you guys, but I had a blast down here in the EC, sorting out the "Win-Gers". http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=43919.0 what a great ride we also had, traversing 3 or 4 game parks MAHALA!!! 

Nice to see a darkie - SheSha- getting to grips with ADV riding as well. Mooi So Boet :thumleft: I hope one day to meet you on the trails.

Then, its really fantastic to see Racing Chic getting along there, with Puddles and Hoofseun. Mooi man :thumleft: :thumright: 

I really want my daughter to come along, and enjoy a ride with us. My problem is it seem Iím always down in the EC when you guys go on such awesome rides.

To all of you on that ride. THIS is what its all about, the ride, the challenges, and of course the company.

Lastly we really have to salute Blazes for bringing these trails to those who otherwise would not even know roads and trails exist where he takes everyone.

RIDE ON GUYS  & GALS

What A LottA Fun we all had!  :ricky:
Thanks so much Blazes for organizing the coolest trip - as usual, you did a super job!  You're the best thing that's happened to my Sunday mornings  :biggrin:
And those TKC's are the best thing that happened to my Precious & my traction on gravel - awesome - they'll stay on the bike if I can help it!
Thanks to all the friends for all the good chats & laughs - we really are an amazing group.
Can't wait for the next outting :thumleft:

Last time I rode that neck of the woods was last winter, what a difference summer makes.

great riding conditions, good company, no dust, what a pleasure!

Nice to be able to see where I'm going for a change as well

Tx, Blazes, makes the journey from Jhb worthwhile

You don't like the rim tape, eh? Must be an age thing.......

Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

Great to see you again --and super to see you still have your sense of Humour after your spill---most of very Happy to see you are recovering day by day.

Rim tape -----------well lets ask WES to set up a poll and we can Vote--Glad at least it was not Orange rim tape  or as they say---The New --------Orange Conversion.--------

Lekker ride guys... I was in the mountains inland of Empangeni... now that is riding... and those KZN guys are not shy to jack up the technical level of a ride... I did not even know a Dakkie could do half that stuff!   :-\

And I splatted once and almost tossed the bike in a river too!  :) 

So, I ain't gonna say sorry I missed this one!   :P

I feel so loved... :)

And you'll have to beg Mark for the RR... he has the pics, but no proof of any of the FAIL pics, where I ran out of ability!  Got my bike up too fast for even him!  :)

You can consider that she goes out with Racing Chic or with us for the odd Balzes Ride when you are not up here.  We have agreed that Racing Chic is free at any time to do the Blazes rides on her own if we cannot make it.  We know the rides Blazes do are well organised with low risk.  After December Sammy is quite capable and it is just a case of building more and more experience and confidence, and sometimes Puddles and I restrict it.
