Baviaans -Side entry attempt ( Take Two) RR
« on: November 28, 2010, 07:03:48 pm »
Thanks To J-Mo for all the organising and to Bennet  for assisting with the back up.

Special mention goes to gay-gog and 214 for the entertainment.

And Crab for keeping it real, you made up for the not so real


The beginning and the end
Ag shame

This was one of the nicest weekends I had in a long time.

It went off just as we planned. It started with a breakfast at The Smelly Dutchman and it ended with a late breakfast at Padlangs.

The trip haven't even started properly when Paulsky had a puncture. But as they say when it start like this, it's going to be a great weekend. 

I'm very proud of everyone that went on this trip. Fourteen okes and two wimman of which were thirteen riders, one pillion and two drivers, . Thirteen bikes, one logistic vehicle and one recovery vehicle. We had four minor downs(No damage) and one incident where M-man's GS1200's right cylinderhead connected a rock, damaging the crashbars, cover and cracked the tappit cover. After some steel putty, he was mobile again. If he was a novice rider the outcome could have been very different but he recovered the bike without going down. The 13 dogs were doing very well and all I can say is thanks for a almost incident free weekend. the Saturday night party was great although most of us  were paste.

 I've got photos of the start and the party but please, the rest of the pictures and stories must come from you.

Thanks again for everybody that went with. We will definitely have to organise something like this again. :thumleft: :thumleft:

A little video clip of the start

Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.

We hit the tar along the old van stadens to Humansdorp to Kareedouw.


What do guys that take pics of other naked guys look like on there Byke?


Stopping to repair luggage


R62 is always picturesque


After breakfast at the Sweaty Dutchman we started the route


Waiting for the pack to catch up.


The riders ahead


And behind



I love the views





and why he's called Crab


Rode sweeper behind J-Dog & Stealth Creeper for a while


Then when I realised they went going to fall for me I went ahead to get some action pics of them.
J-dog couldn't remember how to set his helmet cam to show slow motion so he just rode slowly.



Stealth Creeper's more of a man than I'll ever be for riding up behind J-Dog


And J-mo in the trusty steed.








Despite Popular opinion, J-dogs a good oke, Always a pleasure to be riding away from him.
(Only happens if he allows it)


another short stop


and some more views






And a short piece of excitement


A relieved bunch waiting for the next challenge



And on to prettier things











It got really hot up there with a few okes and okesses taking the odd dive (some were very odd)
All were very relieved to get to the camp site.







We played around in the water and marvelled at Tyger's submarine exploits as she paddled up and down and down.




The next Morning we got up to a beautiful day with birds chirping
(This is much better than listening to J-dogs chirping the night before)

But then all good things come to an end,
He awoke

Vernon Koekemoer wannabe






And then he spotted 214's butt


The crowd went wild and headed off into the sunrise while some of us took it nice and slow

214


Tyger



Cacher


Crab



Cacher


Crab








And after a 12h00 breakfast we headed home.

Flowers along Patensie roads brighten up the day.



Thanks again to all
Boys will be Boys.
And girls are darn thankful for that

Thanks J-mo. You did a fantastic job organising the weekend and thanks to all who went along for the ride. It was a fantastic weekend with some of the toughest riding I have done.
Look for a shooting star and see Lynda's trail and remember all the great places you shared with her,she will never forget what she shared with you and will show you that in every starry night .

Here's my pic. No idea who this is or where it is. I used the soft focus method to create an atmosphere of dreaminess, but at the same time, an illusion of speed.

Stealth Creeper getting ready in her new gear. I thought I could easily pillion her the whole route. Fail.



Thump checking his sandwiches and milk




Paulsky, 214 and tiger




Pensively wondering if the oil tanker will make it up hell’s passage



Ain’t they sweet, just a walking down the street, and I tell you very confidentially...la la



The incredible hulk after a hulkectomy



Paulsky checking on one of his gadgets. J-mo in the cap making sure everyone is still doing ok



Thump’s impression of a (abnormally tall) Japanese dude

My bike kept on overheating, so Thump removed a part. He had no idea what it was there for, but it seemed to fix the problem. Unfortunately, this is where Stealth Creeper had to get off as a pillion. The road was becoming tough to ride, and the bike was getting too hot. It was an extremely hot day.



“Thump you bastard, you cut the wrong wires didn’t you”




A little drama at hell’s passage, but everyone bullied and bashed their way up the steep rocky incline.




















The old faithful coming up the passage. J-mo driving and Stealth Creeper enjoying the aircon and cold oros.




Everyone was happy to have made it, despite a few tumbles and a broken BMW (guess which sticking out part hit a rock)

Dogs in the dam – not a pretty sight



Bennett enjoying a cold one after his exhausting ride in the bakkie



Orange ready to race tents



Paulsky must have been telling (another) story



Doornkloof is one of the most amazing camp sites



The triumph tiger sounds like a dream, and handled the route with ease



Braai time



Paulsky’s tent packing ritual which, although neat, seemed to be an awful lot of work



The big guy himself – J-mo pleased with the outcome of the trip. Big up to you mate!



The GS pots always take a beating



Taliban dew, a pipe, a cool green campsite and a hard day’s riding – pure bliss



Heaven

Stealth Creeper is in there somewhere



My Mitas E07’s did some hard work



I found this on Thump’s ass



Braai tongs can be used for anything



The only real water crossing in the Bav. It was fairly deep though



Some fynbos



Some of the dogs taking a bath












Enjoying the easier rd’s on the second day, with cool weather
