Everybody falls off. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

Sunday Morning, I am stiff and sore and luckilly I had my trailer at the bash in case somebody else fell.  Irony hey?  ???


So the rebeldogs help me load the bike onto the trailer, (I was too full of painkillers)  And off we go to PTA with Shebangu and Joupa.  But 10km out when we hit the tar....

So I offload the bike, and I head back to the campsite.  Seems I just got a weeks holiday!!!

 :biggrin:

But Veldbrand has got space for me on his trailer, so yet again I have a lift home, and I can't stay behind to ride the bike back.

We stop over in Upington, and I camp on the banks of the orange river in the first TWO MAN STEALTH CAMPER TENT


PHoto 1:  Bike offloaded, and I head back to the campsite.

pHOTO 2:  Tent pitched, Dogs not included.

PHoto 3:  Next morning Sunrise on the banks of the orange river.

Thanks to everybody for all the help and assistance after my crash.  And to those who kept giving me beer, your idea of pain management was better.  :biggrin:

THANKS to all that made this bash a great success!!  :thumleft:

We had an awesome trip – my first taste of Namibia, and I’m sure to be back, soon I hope!  :mwink:

Our pics…





Day 1 – JHB to Kuruman





Day 2 – Kuruman, Hotazel, Van Zylsrus, Aroab























It was HOT AS HELL indeed!!

Day 3 – Aroab, Karasburg, Fish River Canyon, Vioolsdrift

Moon on the right and sun on the left…















The only thing we saw on the road while travelling for 2 hours was our own dust :biggrin:







The place is so desolate that they just leave crashed vehicles in the middle of nowhere all over the place



And then we found these abandoned riders…



Great White



Would I?



XT Freak







Mmm…. It is a nice bike…





Die manne!

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

Ek het ook daar gaan ry. Het terug gekom net toe julle gaan. Jammer julle het nie vroeer laat weet nie dan kon ons saam gaan.

Daai roete gaan in die Nababiep reservaat in

Ice cream was the best idea!

The obligatory pic at Kathu





We ended the bash in style – a Jacuzzi and cocktail!! (at least it was blue) :)
