« on: September 04, 2010, 09:23:12 pm »
Lekker day.

Thanks to all who joined and made it what it was.

Skipskop
Bullcat
J-Dog
Reese
Cacher
Jman
214
Tyger
Thump


waiting for helmets at Engen


Heading out


Joined by the top box monster



Should we or shouldn't we



214


Tyger



The brave attempt.
won't mention names cause J-dog is quite sensitive.


Who's kak idea was this anyway??




Gonna do it this time



Loopidy loop, smoking dude
reese made an excellent attemp, just been foiled right on top by the monster rock.



214


Jupiter showing that size doesn't matter



Bullcat



Reese


Jman was past before I could get the camera ready.


Cacher



Skipskop


J-Dog



in ride backward shots





At Jagtesvlakte ramping

Jman


He didn't get too much air but the contents of his luggage did


214 flying over Jmans refuse


Look mom, I can go sideways


J-Dog found that he had to stand to pass wind and that helped get extra air


Reese showing his ol toppie how it's done



Up and down is boring, you got to learn to twist it baby



Jman finds it's easier with less luggage



Reese proving the other one wasn't a fluke



And off again



They follow, for a while, it's good leading. It's cleaner and the other okes don't know when you're lost






Then the old toppies headed for Out of Africa and J-dog, Reese and I went for a short out-ride.


Good braai at OOA

Cappie joined at the end



Tyger was very thirsty




"Who ate my food?"



Then a short secret detour
Jman in action


Tyger in action


The view


Improved


Perfected


Sonsak




And we were followed down out of the sunset by fairies


The route without the secret section


Google earth below, a bit larger to be able to follow easier

Total distance covered 150km over 11h40

No pics of the massage

Thanks again

Op de vierde dag van Zeptember twee duizend en Tien een kleine pakkie Wilde Honde beplant een reis na de Jagse Vlakte nabeij de donker metropol van de Uitenhage onder de lieding van ene Famp oftewel Fump  oftewel Thump. Meijself wil de reis meegemaakt het maar kon ek niet de lefhebbende greep van mijn vrou vrybreek teijdig om t vertrekt om 09honderd. Dan ek het ontvlug om 09h40 ek het mijn vierwiel aangedreefde motorfiets opgezaald en met een snelle vaart de bosje ingevliegd in een poging om met de Wilde Honne op te vangt. Naby die Mission roete ek het gevonden een overgepigmenteerde en navraagd gemaak na de pak wildehonde en niet een zinvolle antwoord ontvang. De programt het de Wille Honde aangekondig by JagseVlate te wese om 12h00. Mijnself was by de JagseVlak en vele jagse manne gezient op die motorfietse om eelf uur. Mijn gade het ferm aangekondig dat ek een verpligting het na de 14h00 en om 12h00 heb ek een fotografiese beeld vasgevang van de pak Wilde Honde op de JagseVlak. De pakkie honde was veel klein en moeijlik zigtbaar. Verwys na onderziende fotografie   :pot:

cool.
It will be a sad day for plastic riders when the area is fenced and turned into a small reserve.

Thump I compliment you for taking the initiative to get us together like this though I could not be part of the whole ride.

Yes it is sad to see this area fenced in. It appears that "7 rivers is no longer accessable and I would be a happy animal if I could live down there. It worries me to see where else they were clearing bushes yesterday with a front-end loader. If that is also for fences then we will be terrible screwed in a bad way.

Thank`s again for an enjoyable day Thump.I had a great day and met some good people.This is the most fun I had in a long time,that is, with my clothes on >:D .I`m really enjoying getting back into biking.
The sand monster grabbed me twice and another time a rut grabbed me front wheel,so 3 off`s for the day ,not bad for my first day off road on the KLR.Unfortunately there were`nt many cameras around with my off`s  >:D.
I have some sore muscles today but voltaren is my friend ;D
Here are a couple of pic`s,if I may .
