    Photos were taken by Candyman. Thanks buddy. I was just messing about and he came to take some snaps after doing some riding himself. It was raining as well so very dark.

    I still have much to learn though.

    awwww I wish I had my dad to go riding with, it would be SOOOOOOO kick ass, you are blessed Joker, you are blessed. Tell him you love him so that when you are seperated, you'll be happy to have let him know how ya feel.

    Ok, Oprahs finished now. So, this weekend is on, lets go have some fun. PM your cell/email, lets confirm later today for a ride 2mrw and Sundays Grabouw. We are confirmed to there too.

    Cheers - you ride with a pillion to Grabouw? And in the sand at West Beach? If you can, cool, because I will certainly bring mine then, it sharpens up the skills a TON.

    Cheers, George

    Hi All,

    So without writing a ride report, I thought I would post some pics of the Joker who is a new guy around here, and his bike, seeing as he didnt bring his camera. We went for a ride through West Beach. Joker on his lovely GS1200 with Two Brothers exhaust, and nuwe TKC's and Michele (my GF) as pillion on the back of my Dakar, which y'all have seen before. Sorry that there arent more pics, its hard for Michele to take photos and hold on to me when acting as pillion on soft sand.

    Here goes:

    (ps: LStriker, I think you got some competition there mate with Joker as a good sand rider on the 1200...)

    Chris

    Chris (notice the broken golden rule here Buddy, look up look up look up)

    [​IMG]

    Nice number plate

    [​IMG]

    just before the bend. This sort of bend beneath trees is tricky cos its soft, theres a bend every 10-30 metres for a few kays like this and cos youre standing on the pegs, its a dodge to keep standing and duck under the trees so that you dont get MOERD off your bike

    [​IMG]


    I ramped off this tree trunk, didnt gas it enough and down Michele and I went... sorry Mish (she hurt her calf here, but was a trooper enough to continue doing the entire ride and not whining once. What a star. McDuff youve done this course with me, and you know how burny the leg muslces can get with all the whoopsies.

    [​IMG]

    Please note Mish stretching calf. She had protective gear underneath but wanted to pull it all off, as it was getting really hot. Note also my numberplate in mud, it wasnt all dry sand believe me..

    [​IMG]

    Coming through the whoopsies, you cant even see them here. Anyone who doubts theyre there, speak up, and I'll organise a personal tour for you. (Just ask LStriker/Joker) :evil


    [​IMG]

    Joker trying to take a break... he just wouldnt give up his personal sandbox spade attempts

    [​IMG]

    Helping a mate get his 1200 going again

    (trick: 2nd gear while standing still, rev to around 45000 rpms, dump clutch and watch her rise up and walk away easily)

    Chris on the go - look up Chris, look up!!

    Beautiful Cape Day, with TM just visible in background

    Lads lads lads. I had this number plate reserved since 6 months before anybody even saw the 1st GS1200. Sat and waited for me like almost 9 months.

    So number is mine I made sure. ;)

    candyman has a red one with R1200GS-WP notice the R

    Gruebane must lift those lenses so he can see better. hehehe :D
