Hey Nemo, what the riding  course with Ronnie did do for me,  was give me the courage to say no, and with time after the broken arm, and riding with amazing friends, I am building up the courage to do things again. The decision of the mud puddle was easy, after the Transkei and the rain, and being so close to home, I knew it would be a soft landing, and lo and behold, made it. Whoop whoop.
The last pic of course was different, those fella's sitting with their camera's, give them the satisfaction of going for a swim, oh no , not on a Sunday! You know the Kevin's...!!

Great pics, Jughead

Kudos! Well done.  :thumleft:
But for me, it's like a night out with a porn star, every time I press that starter button. Schneller! Schneller! Tiefer! Ja, ich bin geil! Ich komme!  >:D

That's what I call slaying the might mud monster! Nice recovery.
If you had a psychic midget who killed someone, you would have a small medium at large.

Don’t worry about things that aren’t, worry about things that are and your decisions are so much easier to make!

Dorothee you are a Babe  :thumleft:  that was some correction , nicely done on catching it .  :thumleft: There is something to be said for riding slower and keeping a cool head . Even some more experienced rider might have lost it there , but you just styled it through , nice!   :ricky:
