*sigh*

There I was, having an intellectual discussion with two charming young ladies from Secunda about topical environmental issues  (actually about the big stink from the Sasol smoke stacks) and I get accused, and publicly nogal,  by my riding companions of impure thoughts, intentions and spade work.

Moi? At my age? With my body?

Had this guy jumped the stop street about 3 seconds later it may have given Haplo a bit of a problem.

Driver looked about 13 years old.

Thanks Nicco for arranging a wonderful weekend at Tattenhams. It was enjoyed with an entertaining crowd of people. It was nice to see some familiar faces again and great to meet some new ones. Guys.......the way you looked after us girls was most impressive.....a big thanks.

Hope to see Mrs. Wilddoc ( Noel) on her own bike next time and  ‘Well done Sam’ – you did great.

Looking forward to the next get-together.

Pure coincidence and camera incompetence - I put the helmet cam down in snappy snappy mode - and there they were  ;D

Chicco, I think what White Rhino is angling for the GPS track of the Ride. The planned route is in yellow and our actual tracks in blue but I think White Rhino should be careful about coming into Natal, he may become an endangered species!
The dog that caught the car. What now?

A small clip of some of the riding. No action shots and unfortunately the lens kept fogging up due to moisture in the air so I had to leave out some of the best footage :(

I hope the embedding works...

here's the link to the video if not...
