Just a couple of pics taken with my BB en route to the bash, others to follow..

Leaving Pinehaven with Orange Swifty and Cocky



Pretty lonely in a sea of orange



A place called Dominionville (the juice was a bit stale)



Taking a little nap on the bridge after side stand spring got lost



Thanks to Milkybar we were treated to an awesome trip to 'teelplaas' just outside Hoopstad



Seriously 'de moer in' or just hungry



Most beautiful lion i've ever seen



Late Thursday night and the boys are still kuiering in Milkybar's garden



Tweety's accident scene :eek7:



The man, and his pain (How did you manage to lose it twice on the same spot bud :eek7:)



The damage :'(



After the action, satisfaction.  Cocky sussing out Orange Swifty's bike in the bar in Boshoff (??).  That dude in the background with the blue jacket told the bar lady at 14:00 to call his wife who had been sitting in his bakkie since 11:00 to come join them.  He talked exactly like Tolla but eish, that lady was scared of him :patch:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

Some more...

Leaving from Hoopstad, seventeen or so bikes, with Sandrider leading the ride >:D



The section of road that claimed Cave Girl and made most of the group turn around ::)



The spot where we turned off to the mielie land, waiting for the 'opfok' :pot:



The mielie land where the hilite of the trip lay ahead for the remaining 3 x riders



Die Kanon Kroeg (FFS, what's the town's name? last one before Koffiefontein)



Is that a bike inside :eek7:

Cocky was the 1st one to make liberal use of the locals invitation to show them our bikes.  Orange Swifty soon followed suite



And my bike doing the classy BMW act, waiting like a well-trained horse outside the bar for his boss to finish his drink



Arriving at VDK dam, this pink phone booth got my attention



Wonder how many dogs noticed the damn :biggrin:

It was just such a pleasure to keep you guys entertained and in good spirits! I enjoyed it tremendously! You're welcome anytime guys. (and girls) :thumleft:

A well organised bash, Oetie, Kilroy and JM, my first but hopefully not my last. :thumleft:

Thank you for each and everyone for their friendliness and making a new dog feel welcome.
 
Thanks for the riding tips from Jules and DeonDJ (Jules the corners now a breeze)   :ricky:

Hermit and DeonDJ thank you for the out ride to Orania.

Friday night was spent catching up with fellow dogs, so no pics from me

Saturday morning with Welsh's cage taking centre spot.  Plottie and his fellow campers opened up the frosties at 6 am, having gone to bed in the region of 4 am - don't worry about the noise Plot, your suffering on Saturday equated to an apology  :mwink:



Plot, your middle finger is legendary :biggrin:



Some of the long time legends of the game

The orange freak Piston Pete (nice meeting ye ol chap :thumleft:)



Funacide and Welsh



Leo in Miami :biggrin:



And the famous Carl Hungus (sp?) :mwink:



Hentie & Stoetbul (lekker om te ontmoet Stoeta, jy's fokken snaaks broer :thumleft:)



Orange Swifty's wild side...



And the gentleman (touching up on Zeena's lipstick)  ;)



A bit of blood..



Bain our wingman - thanks for keeping the 'manne together



DeonDJ explaining sumfing to Zeena (not 100% sure with name)



Eish, you can't take these okes anywhere :imaposer:
