T minus 4 days
« on: March 06, 2006, 11:03:48 am »
Ok, so this coming weekend I'll be attending the BMW Off-Road "school" at Country Trax.  I will leave on Thursday afternoon, and go there by bike (I don't own a HD :roll: ).  JCP will join me, and the SWAMBO will join as well - not to participate, but to get some beauty treatment and to laugh at my expense  :twisted: .

I fitted a set of Conti TKC's, as everyone told me it will sure enhance the experience (sounds like a condom add :oops: )

I will keep you posted on this fred on everything I do for preparation, as well as a report on the weekend itself.

Ta,

Skaap

Let me know if there is a cancellation or two.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Ok, so today is the day.  We will leave this afternoon latish :( b ut work comes first.

I've checked all the bolts & nuts on the bike, removed the screen (as I will trailer it down - not lus to doge potholes at night :wink: ), and made sure that the kit is in good condition.  I've packed my camel pack for hydration.......


Manne, ek kannie wag nie!!!! :D


Enjoy, we had a great time there, beware the camel pack, they make the Brandy and Coke froth!
