Lyndhurst Breakfast Ride 2 April 06
« on: April 02, 2006, 01:40:18 pm »
So today saw the DS riders get together for the Lyndhurst Breakfast ride, something that Mike Pohl seems to be getting off the ground. You might have seen the post by KalahariBen, as he seems to be involved as well.
8 O'clock was the meeting time at Engen and the turnout seemed good.



In fact I think the turnout caught the organizers somewhat off guard, but none the less ....we had fun :D .
At Lyndhurst some 50 plus bikes was counted plus another 20 plus from Engen made the group over 70 DS bikes
Departing from Engen

We travelled some nice roads, but some of the group went missing, somebody was not waiting for anybody, and in the end nobody found the right route.

The lady at the breakfast venue was expecting less bikes, but they coped quite well.


The owner of this 950 had lost part off his numberplate, quite fortunately only the far left section of the plate broke off  :D

On the route back we followed a marvelous route alonside the railway track, and eventually we ended up at a quarry where we could play some more.

Thanks for a nice ride. Sorry I didn't take any photies on the offroad section, but once you stop and 50 DS bikes past you, you gonna eat a lotta dust  :?

There's nothing nicer to see such a huge turnout with so many
different DS bikes....That's what I like seeing.

Hi all!

First of all - thanks Leo for posting all the photies - they look great. But it's like you say - if you stop for too many photies you end up eating a lot of dust. Next time we must maybe get Stefan (CoutryTrax photographer to come along, and to document the whole thing for us).

Then - thanks for the support - I really appreciate the attendance as well as everyone's accommodating attitude (the whole thing was quite daunting to me in terms of the number of people that attended, as well as the logistics behind the whole thing).

Eventually it looked lke everyone had fun. Next time I'll just have to think creatively around the problem of people not waiting at turns (it was quite a pity that such a large part of the group got lost on the way to Cullinan).

In terms of the next trip (7th of May), please share your ideas, advice, thoughts (info@bmwclassics.co.za).

I'll post some of my photies later today.

Cheers!

Awesome! Nice to see so many DS riders and pillions doing their stuff.

What was the road conditions like?

Perfect trip to take the wife on but I'm not so confident in taking pillion on dirt at this stage.

...mostly nice, easy gravel - on the way back we did some bumpier stuff.
