Thanks Hoofseun for the ride on your 450X   :drif:

Always a pleasure to have you join in--Pity sus was feeling ill-- The training and hours in the saddle with Hoofseun is showing the way you girls are riding now -- even many of the men are finding it hard to stay with you all --keep it up  :thumleft:

thanks mister blazes for the greatest ride-on-an-empty-stomach EVER! ;D
was nice to see everyone again, and meet a few new folks - pity about the mixup that had everyone disappearing though...

thanks mister hoofseun for putting on a great show all day long, and also for tuning my suspension, it takes me a while to notice but it's definitely better now!

those 450's are soooo hotttt! normally i'd say something like "be careful leaving your keys lying around" but keys? ...>:D
i am so niks-gewoond, and trying to compare the two would be like weighing up my favourite food against my favourite music...
the husky is tastier looking, the bmw's leo vince sounded nicer, they both just float over everything, and their oomph kinda surprised me! but gentlemen, your feet are too big! :D

dakota, damn girl! too fast ;) and props to olive oil for doing it all on an unfamiliar bike, your feet stayed on the pegs the whole time in that sand!

don't have any photo's to add, i had too much fun riding (which seems to be the case more and more lately) :D

Thnxs for the first fuel addition from Brett and the second one from Jacques.  Did actually make it to the filling station in the end and only needing 4.61 litres whilst the XR250R took on 4.31 litres, but the 250 used that from the start - bwhaaaaa!

But the ride was so much fun and enough playtime on the way!

Thanks to all involved yesterday, sorry that i held you up due to my spectacular off :xxbah:.
Just want to say thanks to the guy who help me pick up the bike, and also to all those that cable tied/ duck taped and bungy corded what was left of the front of my bike back together again. To the lady behind who saw this all go DOWN wish you had it on camera i still don't know how i got OFF so lightly. Make no mistake though the body is stiff and sore in all sorts of places and i have a black and blue soccer ball growing out of my left hip :laughing4:

Thanks again to Blazes and all involved.:thumleft: Hope to be back once the bike is sorted  :thumleft:

Me, but there appears to be a marked misunderstanding between me and my new Sony son of Eric.

Sorry, maybe next time.
