OVERBERG RUB
« on: July 02, 2007, 01:16:30 pm »
As we all live in different areas,we started from different points.
We got together at the Wynlands Engin Garage.Wes (BMW Dakar 650), Jannie (KLR650) and myself (XT660R).
We proceeded to Stellenbosch and met up with Albert (KTM 990 Adventure).On to the Shell Garage at the foot of Sir Louries Pass.
Here we met up with the rest of the guys nameley ; Chris (BMW1200) , Henry (BMW 1200),Paul (KTM 625), Trevor (XR650R) and Christo (BMW1150).
Chris took the lead and off we went to Grabou.Turned right onto the Hi Rising Road.(which has bad rutts erroded in the surface).
We came out at the Kleinmond turn off and went on to Botriver and the Van der Stel Pass.(very slippery clay corners)
Wes had a small off here,blames it on his side stand.Ha.Ha!
Chris,the leader,missed the turn off and Henry volinteered to give chase,he got him back on track so off to Greyton.
Chris ,still enjoying the ride that much , missed the Greyton turn off also,but Henry soon reeled him in.
Greyton for breakfast then.
As all know,there is no petrol available in Greyton.On asking the local resturant owner where the nearest open Petrol station was,he replied,Caledon.
On the way back ,as the gravel ends and the tar begins,there is a small shop and petrol pumps(Open on Sundays)on the lh of the road.At the T-Junction to Caledon/ Villiersdorp,we went our seperate ways.
Thanks guys,great ride.
Andy

yes. that damn sidestand. o well, what more can we say  ;D except that I was instructed by Albert, our friend on the KTM (not on the forum) to inform everyone that I met a KTM rider that can ride at the back, and will stop to help a stricken BMW rider  ::) ::) ::)

The day was a lot of fun, thanks to everyone involved. I peeled off on the dirt road near Theewaterskloof and headed home via Franshoek as the rest continued on to Greyton. So a short day for me, but a fun one as I continue to learn, improve, and build confidence on the dirt.

unfortunately not many pics from me, but here's what i have:

Jannie and a few of us normally always go on rides together,we need to get a group together and let each other know of local rides.In that way we can ride more on Sundays.
There is a standard ride most Thursday evenings at the lower BP garage in Tokai,They meet at 19h30.
