Swartbaard! dis nogals nostalgies om n RR te lees van n plek wat n mens goed ken. En boonop die mense ook.
Miskien moet jy/ons iets reel soontoe.

GREAT RR
GREAT PLACE!

Nou maar toe...Kom ons maak n' plan  :ricky: Middel Maart Maand  :3some:  :thumleft:

First off TR you TRULY are SADISTIC.... that simply sucks that you can just go riding like that
while we are working...... :mwink:

Gotta admit there is a very good feeling (SADISTIC) I s'pose about riding while all going off to work...
so enjoy being SADISTIC... >:D

That route looks absolutely stunning .....

Dammit Trailrider ... you can't just gooi these lekker trips out like this ... it makes me even more embarrassed to admit I haven't seen a damn thing around this area!  It smokkels my kop!    8)
