Whoever donated straps for the Dakar, I still have a red one and black one. The others should be with Blazes.

Contact me if you want to collect. Both Blazes and I live near the departure point.
Hi There HVDM.... The black strap belongs to me. If you're going to the Limpopo Bash you can give it to me then bud, otherwise when we meet again!
Cheers, Tommy. :thumleft:

Hi Blazes and Jules

Blazes thanxs for arranging the day and Jules for leading the other (little) group.  It was nice, relaxing and fun - nothing beats getting out of home and spend time on the bike!

What a FUN day! The slightly more technical route was fun and fast,
8 of us did the route and we made good time, There were a few spills along the route but everyone rode out with no major problems,

This was a BIG group



Hell Jules--that first pic would have sent me home if i saw the group from up where you took it--see you Saturday and than's for taking the newbie technical group and bringing them back in one piece  ::)

Thanks blazes and everyone who joined - I had a blast! :ricky:

Seen you ride quite a few rides with me T and i must admit that for the first time i saw you actually relaxed and enjoying your riding--the DR 650--is the right bike for that kind of riding for you--Even saw you do a powerslide out of a corner at one time  :mwink:

Yup, thanks to Blazes for the organizing, and Jules for the leading of the technical trip (and lifting my bike off my leg up the hill  ::))

Nice meeting new people - also interesting to see how many of them came from J'burg.

Misty the new bike looks great and you look so comfortable on it nice to see the big improvement I guess I have Lots  of work to do to get onto your level.  ;)
 

Ah thanks CG and nah not a lot of work only riding :) – but you were doing much better too I must say!!
And hey, who told you that we wanted to sing for you?! Now I know why you disappeared ;)

Seen you ride quite a few rides with me T and i must admit that for the first time i saw you actually relaxed and enjoying your riding--the DR 650--is the right bike for that kind of riding for you--Even saw you do a powerslide out of a corner at one time  :mwink:

Ja blazes gotta agree, when you have the right bike it really makes it a lot easier and more fun!! Um powerslide?! Hehe that’s what happens when you get to brave and you enter a corner too fast :biggrin:

CruzaGirl you were really great and a HUGE Inspiration after 2 years and several training sessions you put me to shame - My bike would have been over more than just once in that sand!! I was proud to be riding with you  :) Keep up the good work and try that standing thing it does work. Get hubby to send you on a one of the weekend / day courses some of  the dogs run.

Thankx Cave Girl, your encouragement helped a lot, and yip I tried the standing thing a bit on the way back, wow, it does feel a lot better, don't feel soooo out of control!! Hope to ride with you guys soon again, will need to work on speeding up a bit though. I am really keen on looking into the off-raod training courses, I know it will help a lot.
