Mother's Day Quarry Ride with Crossed-up :)
« on: May 08, 2011, 10:43:11 pm »
Awesome ride!!

Watched Sack and Michiel show how its done on the big bikes. Sid gave crossed-up's frankenbike a ride.

I'm just posting so michiel knows where to put his video and pics :) There's some nice footage of me dropping my bike. Like a twatwaffle. Other than that, a great day :thumleft:

Where was dakarboy???? Fail.

Thanks to Crossed-up and the boys, had some good fun. Haven't been on the KLR for weeks so she felt like new!
Went to sleep last night realizing I didn't take any pictures of the Frankenbike...  :-[ Will have to go again please Crossed-up!

Did get some of Sack tho.  :ricky: Will share soon.

Had a lot of fun.  Thanks guys - MildDog, Michiel, Sack and Sid.   :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

At one time I walked back to find my lost companions and so Sack pillioned me back to my bike which was parked on top of a pile of sand.  He didn't hear me say, "You can stop before the sand and I'll walk up".  Now he knows the limits of his bike better.  :imaposer:

Look forward to some pics, Michiel.

Pity about all this Mothers' Day malarky mucking about with our riding.

Same place, same time next week?

I thought it the perfect opportunity to try out the MoJavi Saddle Bag. Works like a treat! The bag is ideal
to carry necessities like tools, spare tubes and water on little jaunts.



Fits Adam's bike best as it is meant for these more off-road orientated bikes.



To my surprise the bag fitted Sack's 800 like a glove. The 800's unusual rear end makes it difficult to carry
luggage but the Giant Loop products superior design makes life easier.

YES :)

The pics and video are awesome- as always! Michiel your advert video is brilliant. You should try sell it to Giant Loop in exchange for bags or discounts or something?

Though, I'm surprised you included that one moment with my bike. I went to take a pee, when I came back my bike was lying down, having a nap. Very silly.

Die Quarry is altyd lekker!  En ek's seker met Crossed-up by het julle lekker rondgery. 

Never underestimate the power of kindness!
