jaco dis ongelooflik hoe sterk awsomess se leierskap deurgevoer kon word. ek vra berm rooster die tyd en hy se 11 uur se kant. ewe skielik verdwyn almal. ek en dr dirt  gryph gerrit en heinrich en oom jacko aka jakkals kuier toe tot in die vroe oggend ure in.  maaar toe word almal  baie baie vroeg wakker
Casie as ek reg onthou het jy vir my en Heinrich nog tot laat wakker gehou nadat almal gaan slaap het,,,,,, en Casie het jy alweer 'n Savanha by die werk gedrink want ek sien dit as weer net Jaco en nie meer oom Jaco nie.

Just before Montagu we came across a whole lot of other DS-Riders. Apparently they were headed towards Bosluiskloof, where we stayed over the night before.




At first we thought it was only a KTM gathering, but later we saw a couple of Bmw's trailing the pack.

I didnt take any photos at the bash itself, I was having too good a time to bother with a camera.

Casie is daar iets waarvan jy nie 'n foto van het nie ?

Ek is nogal bly jy het toe nie saam met my gery nie want jy sou wou onderhoude voer terwyl ons gery het en met daai spring in jou gat en die manier waarop jy 'n kamera rond swaai sou ek dalk gesukkel  het om die S10 in die pad te hou.

The next day on our way back we decided to have breakfast at Dros in Robertson, while GrapCassie decided to entertain us





From there we decided that the originally planned route will not be preferable and we would stick to tar all the way home visiting all the......   uhmm.... scenic spots on the way.






Karoo Saloon


Ronnies


Ladismith


Calitzdorp


When we left George, Trailrider came to see us off, and when we came back into George, we had a welcoming commitee in the form off Jakkals and his family

Suip Kaap trip!

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Was lekker om julle manne weer te sien.

Jammer dit was so kort.

Ek moet sê - met die 'Movember' ding het ek meer as een keer gedink dit sou gepas gewees het vir julle om uit te breek in 'n entoesiastiese vertolking van 'Whyyyyyyy em sea aaaaaaay!'


 :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:
Ek is seker ek het n paar ander band members gesien.










Hy lyk vir my meer soos Andre Stander   :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:


of miskien hierdie 2 ?

GOING VIA ZEBRA WHERE BERM ROOSTER SE BOOSTER PAP GEWORD HET.
THE  TAKE OFF TOWARDS CALITZDROP AND ANOTHER STOP

Now that we were kooking in the sun and kuiering ‘n bos uit ‘n hond uit we decided to take the afdraai to the left and go to Zebra passing Elephant.  There was a lot of gravel and I decided to take some kiekies of the bikes in front of us.


Here you can see Gryph in front going sy agterband en wys hoe ‘n drift gedoen moet word!




So me and Kwagga kuiered and talked about life in general and how lekker it is to take a offroad bakkie along with the trip


Let me tell you that Kwagga kan ry soos ‘n dagga!. Soos Mitchell shoemager!




We were kooking with heat at that time and everyone decided to stop at every 50 Kilometer travelled to have some lekker dinks and then continue the journey.  Oom Jaco and other  Oom Jaco was in their element and they could’t believe the beautifull scenery in front of them. 
Berm Rooster lead the way and we all followed in his Rooster path all the way where he suddenlty went off a groot kliff just at the intersexion meeting up with the R328 going via mosselbay towards Ousehoring.  So groot  donga dat ek my boeglam geskrik het.  So we klimmed uit and found that Awsomness se hp2 ‘n gat in the view.  So we all stop to have a look to see what was going on with the Tyre.


Here Kwagga, oom Letsgofishing and Gryph looked at the situation and diagnose what is going for what.  Gelukkig is Berm Rooster ‘n marvel made Ingeneer and a Einstein op twee wiele and he had a plan of action!  Stopping the pap band with gommerige goeters


Here you can see Berm Rooster dinking very diep about the pap tyre.  I knew how he felt and tried to comfort him because I had a pap kettang on the last trip and I was also dinking diep how to make the kettang stywer but couln’t manage to do it myself so oom Letsgofishing had to help me.





So Berm rooster decided to but the HP2 down on it’s side and started froeteling with the front tyre.  He decided to put some kook and spray onto the voorwiel to see where the gaaitjie is.  Eventually after foefeling on the tyre he found the gaatjie.  He took out some super plug and drukked die plug in the gaatjie.  Die cool oom van ‘n ander stroom DirtCopper decided to help Berm rooster with the front tyre.  So after Berm rooster plugged in the gom plug he started to blaas his tyre op, but the pressure gauge did not move nor up or down.  So Berm Rooster together with Dirtchopper decided to melt their minds to gether and formed one big think-tank and thereafter they started looking to see if the pressure velve blew a foozie.  They were right and Berm took the fuze out and gooied it weg and pomped the tyre op and he was happy together with DirtCopper that was also happy. 

Now the tyre was sealed and we started to kuier and Heinrigh together with oom Jaco (jakkals) looked and discussed life in general.  Oom Letsgofishing also analyzed this situation and he was speechless.  Dr Dirt danced to the dans and rock music on his iphone while waiting for the departure.
So we decided to take the R328 towards Ousehoring and just a kilomile further we had to stop at the road works.  This lane was closed but the bikes took a chance to go over the obtesticle and we were stuck in the backup bakkie waiting for the oncoming cars to clear so that we can go thru




Here the woman is waving her flag and blaased the vuvuzella to stop the bikes but they just gooied and spinned away!



But while we were riding lekker in the afternoon sun another problem has arisen that did not caught our attention just yet but will soon will follow a ongelooflike gebeurtenis that would be programmed in my kop forever.  While Kwagga and myself and I were driving and complaining about the lang open reguit pad we spotted Letsgofishing’s wit Trans-atlantic bike parked onder a boom!  We stopped to investigate and found that the HP2 Belonging to Awsomness Berm rooster decided to gaan staan sonder diesel. 


So Berm Rooster made a konkoksie and put Beer in the HP2’s tank and ready set go!


Here you can see Awsomness is doing magic!  He transformed Beer into petrol!




So the rest of the group decided to go to Calitzdrop to meet Oom Pad en Tannie Dusty at Wessel se biker bar!  And Dirtcopper also departed and myself I, oom Letsgofishing and Kwagga and Gryph waited for Berm Rooster to depart with the spare beer he had borrowed from his fellow peers


Here Dirtchopper gooied oop ketel towards Calitzdrop.  So we headed to CalitzDrop and arrived at the TO BE CONTINUED
