Gunda Back in Durbs.

Thanks to the organizers for yet another epic FS Bash.

Thanks to the group I rode with on Saturday up into the thin blue air of Lesotho, and for making it one of the greatest rides of my life.

And thanks to Yamaha for making such a great bike.

Pics to follow.

I didn't think the FS bash could get better but this year was the best!! Thanks so much to all for organising - dammit those braai packs were huge, spit on Saturday well catered! Company fantastic. Can't wait for next year. Thanks LD for a great ride home. That Koster road is fun! Slowmaster and hubby also home safe! Now looking for a bigger bikr though! Knopkop heal soon!

Fantastic weekend!!!  A special thanks to Gunda and Tommy Transalp for the tubes Kobus and I managed to get 6 flats and a shredded tyre in the first 60 Km on the way home, then a familiar looking character hijacked us and relieved me of my bike and I had to hitch a ride home with a Bakkie! >:D  Thanks to all who made this a great weekend :thumleft:

A couple of pics from the Lesotho Hillbilly brigade.

Heading out from the Kloof.



Border formalities.



Wheelman striking a Peroni Pose.







Butha Buthe was buzzing – mainly ‘cos of the flies.



In the foothills with the Maluti in the background.



Eish ! But this was close. This cow shot into the road just in front of me and if it were not for a good pair of Brembos up front we would have had to get a vet to do an emergency bovine uterine gundarectomy.



Climbing the Moteng pass.







At the top of the Moteng pass.



On the road to the Hlaeng pass. We were to peak out at 3300m, and the popping and farting of Cyclop's KLR in front of me kept a smile on my face.







Close to the Oxbow Lodge.





Stopped for brunch at the Oxbow Lodge on the way back.  The water in the stream was crystal clear.





Had to get a shot of a Wooly Bugger for the Wooly Bugger.

I have a special request, seeing as I am now scarred for life after Saturday nights' events. Please just DON'T post pics of a certain person (We won't tell anybody that it was JohnST) in a MANKINI!

Thanks Hentie, Deon and Laurika for all the organising. Thx Zet & Bru for organising me some plate Friday evening...It came with a price.... >:D but it was all good....
Thx to the fabulous 4 sharing the "tchalette" gr8 new friends.
Sorry if we missed saying goodbye to anyone yesterday morning. Breakfast was needed and a bed. Habba was coming down with a serious case of the flu and after Wimpy in Bethlehem he was burning up with fever. In Welkom we had to stop for petrol and as we pulled out of the petrol station, we got drenched to the bone with heaven's sprinlers opening up. Both of us not doing well today.
Knopkop, jeez oke, hope and pray you heal well and quickly.
Lennox, hope your dad get well as well. Keep us posted please Herman.
Was great seeing all our old friends again.
Blessings to all! :thumleft:
Trials are survivable. We must keep our eternal perspective through the tough times.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.” (2 Cor. 4:8-9 NLT)
