Sorry I couldn't be there.  Glad for those who could and did. Malgat was just simply great.  Well done for taking the lead Blazes.

What a lekka day – sad, but good,

Was a bit different for me being asked to lead, but at least no dust !

What a great idea to plant a tree – may you grow well little kareeboom !

Some pic from the helmet.

Saying hello to the speed camera in the Hennops River Valley – Luckily it faces backwards.  >:D

Strange perspective from a camera with 170 Degree field of view









I didn’t like this horrible gravelly stuff much !



Pretty flowers along the way ? Not !

Waiting for the cappuccino to arrive !



Nice bits to open up a bit.



Not much water coming over the dam wall.

Couple of puddles.



I love this straight bit with fences left and right – no beasties or kids so can open up a bit.





Number plates just don’t stay on bikes.

The pack at Beestekraal !

Stop, some rest, some smoke, some take pics. GundaGunda builds coffee.

MadMike999 doing road side repairs to prevent his numberplate & bracket being lost.  ;D Attempt was with nice thick tie-straps.

MadMike999’s tie-strap repair job failed. (You should’a used bloudraad boet )  A few km’s further he again “Hold Up the whole procession” yanks the contraption off the tail end and has it migrate to the rear of his camel pack.

Mike, your bonie really looks like a “stoff-donkie café racer” now  :biggrin: :thumleft:

Malibu really enjoyed herself in the dust & dirt with the KTM. That “nose job” is dust, the ears are Jules playing around.

Jules & Malibu

Station gathering

Many had Malgats favorite, Russians, Chips and a Cream Soda




This was a lovely day to remember Malgat. May his spirit of adventure, live on in us all.
To all that ejoyed the run with us. :thumleft:

Specil thanks to RAS for arranging the tree. :thumleft: :thumleft:

My thanks to Blazes for arranging and to every one else for attending. I had a great time.
I only met Iep on his last ride but took a real liking in him and I would have loved to get to know him better.
I left my camera batteries at home so only took a few picks with the cell phone.
The famous Gunda Gunda coffee break where the two groups mingled.



After the tree planting Jules volunteered to take us to "The Rock", and what a nice ride this was. The roads to and from "The Rock" was good gravel highways where we managed to put on a bit of speed that I really enjoyed. It was my first time at "The Rock" and when Jules took us to "Koos se klim" I immediately decided that there was no way in hell that I am taking my bike up there. Luckily there is an alternative route and I made it up and down without stopping or putting a foot down. WOW what a scary ride. I don't like slipping the clutch under power so just kept going in 1st which had the front wheel in the air a few times when it sounded like the engine might stall and I just pinned the throttle. Really scary on that steep incline.

A few photos on 'The Rock" for those that haven't been there yet.




The red arrow is where "Koos se klim" starts and goes more or less to where Jules is standing. The incline is so steep that the start of the rock face cannot be seen from where I took the photo
 

I have some video clips of Klomper (Africa Twin), Miepels (1150) a blue Tenere and another 1150 coming up the rock that I will try and post later in the week.

Thanks to Blazes for arranging an awesome ride, thanks to Jules for leading the first pack.  It was really a lovely day, with  great scenery and good company. Malgat would have been in his element, his enthusiasm and generous spirit is missed.   :'(
The tree was planted and I am sure it will grow well, as it was planted in the spirit of love.  :thumleft:
