The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Yes, yes, yes!

Lekker to put some faces to forum chirps, make new friends, drink a few with some old friends and laugh a helluva lot.
Also the biggest birthday party I’ve ever had. Didn’t even have to invite anybody…

As Journeyman mentioned a huge thanks to Maudie and crew for looking after us and being very helpful with everything.
Great venue and even better company.

Pity about the few soldiers who fell but by the sound of it, nothing too serious.
Hope y'all heal soon.
I think a few okes will take longer to get over their babbelasse…. :biggrin:

Dit was ‘n jol.
Thanx people. :thumleft:

A few random shots.

Me, Tottetos, Tottenoes and Andy 660 had a very hot Sunday through Wildeperdehoek Pass and the little shop in Soebatsfontein has the coldest Coke. Slept Sunday night in Doornbaai. Yesterday afternoon we split up ............. Andy to Cape Town, myself to Worcester and Tottetos and Tottenoes stayed over in Ysterfontein. Thanks guys and girl ............... it was great riding with you  :thumleft: :thumleft:   
Andy ............ I wonder if the in-ride stripping from a certain lady in our group has something to do with the Ysterfontein stay-over...................... ohh ........ and she also stripped in Soebatsfontein while we were resting under the trees   >:D >:D >:D

Thanks to everybody, specially the organisers ..................... it was a great Bash  :thumleft: :thumleft:
................... and thanks to the guys that was supposed to meet us in Springbok on Sunday between 09H00 and 09H30, you made us wasting time and you left with our meat  >:( >:(

Ons trippie het Woensdag begin met die 5 manne van Pretoria wat so 16:00 in Upington gearriveer het. Adrian, Jaco, Rickus J, Anthony, Henry en myself het die aand @ Oranjerus geeet waar hulle almal ook gekamp het. Heelwat honde het @ Oranjerus oorgslaap.
Die volgende oggend vroeg was ons in die pad.

Ons eerste stop was die waterwiel in Keimoes en toe is ons weer in die saal oppad Pofadder toe.

Aangekom @ Klein Pella het ons gebruik gemaak van die swembad en natuurlik ys koue bier...baie van hulle!!! Heelwat honed het die nag hier oorgeslaap en die braaivleisvure het hoog gebrand!!!

Die volgende oggend was ons weer vroeg in die saal.

Oppad Goodhouse toe het ek so end saam met Lonerider gery en onder @ Goodhouse het ek met die gewoonte misdadigers van die vorige aand herontmoet.

Van hier is ek, Hans Boorman en Blinkes via Henkries na die Bash...by verre die kakste grondpad in die Noord Kaap...

Die campsite @ Bushwacked was `n welkome gesig en ons het lang, yskoue biere gedrink...van vroeg tot laat!!

Met ons geloop tussen die bar en die Bo Dorp “tel” van ons medekampers hierdie t-shirt op...the rest is history...

Die skaapkopeters!

Die laaste foto van die nweek was die 1 van Weskus en Ouma...duurbare Tannetjie met sommer nog baie huppel in haar stap...

Ek het my kamera gaan bêre en my maar toe aan die ruimhartigheid van die barmanne en my goeie vriende oorgegee.

Baie dankie aan al die organiseerders, borge en my vriende wat die naweek so kort laat voel het. Ek doen dit enige dag weer saam met julle!!
...and this is just the beginning...

I didn't take lots of photos so here is what I got.

Raka and myself left Thursday after work for Delareysville where we stayed over at one of his friends' house.

Photo 1:  Next morning at Delareysville 6am

Photo 2:  Long boring tar stretches.  That's upington 160km to go.  Another 6 and half hours to the bash.

PHoto 3: Outside Pofadder, it's time for a Beer.

Photo4:  Same

We arrived at the Bash scene with only a half hour sunlight to spare. That is  1100km in the saddle all day.

Friday night I had a lekker jol with the Northern Cape dogs, and met a lot of the guys.  Lekker laat gesuip in die bo dorp

Then later I kept Dodo, BAll and Chain and Arfar busy.  I tucked Arfar in bed at 4am, and then went to bed myself.

Saturday Morning I was begging somebody to take a ride with me.   So Berm Rooster walks up to me.

Bermie:  Boer wil jy ry.

Ek:  Ja.

Bermie:  Nou kom ons fokkof.

And off we go.


PHoto1:  Pragtig

Photo2:  Moerse klippe.  Bermie got pissed off at the people writing their names on these stones.

Photo 3:  Nog Pragtig,  Maar is die die regte pad ooit?

PHoto 4:  I all of a sudden get great respect for Veldbrand en Veldblom.  He told me he did this road with a 1150GS with Pillion all the way to Port Nolloth.  Faark.  We hit 30 km of this shit deep sand riverbed, and I miss my Dakar standing at home. 

PHoto 5:  Sandmonster grabs my front wheel!  I fly over the handlebars and last thing I see before I black out is a black block of flats falling on top of me.

My hart kom affie plaas, Waar die Wind en die Son en die Stilte my speelmaats was.

My ribs is sore, my shoulders hurt, wrists are sore en my koppie raas.

Berm Rooster turns around because I am not coming back and the sand roads only get worse ahead.

We call it quits, but we find the only tree in the Groenrivier loop, and have lunch.  Biltong en brannewyn, oppie klippe.  Letterlik!

Photo 1:  View from the lunch spot

PHoto 2:  Same desolation. A magical place.  I will be back with my smaller bike.

PHoto 3:  Bermie.  Tx vir jou hulp Tjom.  Ek was maar seer en my koppie het geraas, my Koos Wye Voete en Biltong maak mens weer kans sien vir die pad terug.

PHotos 4:  On the way back I have 3 punctures just to make sure I have a Super Kak day.  Again, Berm Rooster helps out.

Photo 5:  I hang back and try artistic photos, but walking and climbing this little koppie without using my arms turns out to be tough.

Photo 6:  Another shot.

Nope, we got lost.  Took the first turn off left, instead of going straight.  I've got a map of the section.  I will post it here.

edit:  Here is the map.  If Only I had this before the time.


Redline is the correct route.  Green line is where we were and turned around.  Seems it is a dead end road anyway.

Green Arrow is the left split we got wrong
Red Arrow is the left split we were suppose to take.
