Sunday Social Ride -- RR --
« on: November 28, 2010, 08:00:22 pm »
Sunday morning came and went by like a flash of lightning here in the Highveld--A couple of Old and new friends got together -- 9 in Total. A mix of bikes and the rain had not yet settled the dust - waiting fro the mudmonster to have some fun again.

Was good to see Kili Kid again after his unfortunate mishap with his leg --seems like it has healed pretty well and now he has No reason --Not to walk down the aisle shortly -- :peepwall: so i am told.

Nothing hectic and no spills or T--Shirts that went for sale --just one single puncture and Yes --when someone gets a puncture --They all look at me ---- ::) Whats the use of tech days --Ooops sorry i forgot --they are for coffee and food :pot:

Here are some pics of the gang ----

Wonder if she know's --he was riding it like it was stolen ::)



Moondog --



HSK --



Lynn



Dakota



Jeroen



Killikid



A quick brunch and then off to do some more tracks and home --but not after a quick wash --- ::)



Don't ask --

A dakkie parked in the middle of no where  :mwink:








Thank's all for a most enjoyable morning of riding and trust our tracks will cross again soon ---M

Blazes, thanks again for a great ride!  (Also supposed to be my backyard, but a lot of the time didn't have a clue where we were!  :) )

Ian - thanks for sweeping!

Yip, she did. It was good I left after brunch.
Got home and left boot and trouser leg full with oil. Don't think to serious although if I think technical its usually a "gemors".

I did enjoy it very much. (The small bike is great) Thanks Blazes always lekke to ride with you.

Thanks M for the ride and to all who joined and made it a lekker day..

M we just look to you for punctures cos if we did it we would still be there..

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Thanks Blazes, and the guys! 

So lekker to have such a chilled bunch, and a fantastic ride to get the 6 inches between my ears back in the game!  Who would've thunk that we could do that much dirt on our doorstep!

Lekker to meet you all, and had a blast!

More gas you say.....

Tell me more about --The car wash drive through you were parked at after the ride to wash your bike  ::)

Just a quick spray-down (no pressure-washer yet, too lazy to wash by hand).  Maybe next time I'll just stay on the bike, and get the kit cleaned at the same time.   :)

Don't ask --

A dakkie parked in the middle of no where  :mwink:




...flip but I'm slow...only saw this RR now!!     ::)

Dakkies are excellent!  They go where others fear to tread....   :ricky:

Or should I rather say they just go where you point them...!   :P
