Yep, thanks to all those involved in organising the bash but especially Pete and the two sweepers (AntonW & Robin Brown) who patiently nursed us through the sand with our pillions. Just clocked in at home. I'm knackered, went to bed at 3am at got woken at 4am by those phillistines from the eastern cape departing home  ;) Travel safe okes.

I need a weekend away!!!!

Hey everyone  – awesome Bash!

It will be nothing without the participants, thank for a great event.  I think the routes were great – luckily not too much sand   :o , but offering a bit of everything the Karoo has to offer. 

Remember the photo competition – I still have a Kriega R15 rucksack and bladder to give away…

Thanks Pete for the organizing  it was a great success as usual .
 To you Leftless ! For an awesome route , On behalf of us all , THANKS , so glad you are riding with us again.
And to all the reccie riders , many thanks for all the time you put in to ride out in your time to check out all the roads for the route.

 Every time we did the route ,  it it was different ,especially the last stretch on the way back to camp.That road had turned into a sand trail from the beginning to the end.

And not forgetting , Thanks to Rusty and N[]va for the back up and pics

Henk , Faan ( Of Stonehenge ), You guys rock , Big thanks to you and your excellent staff. !!!!

Glad you guys enjoyed it, I would have liked to attend. I passed lots of bikes coming from the bash on the road from Ceres to Sutherland.

Thanks Pete for organising a lekker weekend, we could see the amount of time you put into this.

Thanks to Andy, Leftless and the other Recce riders for a @!#(^!$@ awesome route.

Henk and Faan looked after us well and went out of their way to accomodate and help wherever they could.

Okes, it was BEFARK!

I laughed so much yesterday. Heimer, Freak and Co you guys are funny chops.

Pete, Leftless and the recce riders: Thanks for all the effort. Much appreciated. Same for Henk & Faan. Respect.

A good time was had by all and I reckon that it was worth the front wheel I farked up while riding like a p**s. Dis als jou skuld, Legadema!  :laughing4:
