Gonna go find a rock to hide under now....

Well Madams, even if I get only 30% of the fun, the two of you will still hav eto ride the next 25 years or more to catch up with me on the fun factor. Now, stop talking kark and go ride or something.

Elouise

And right there is the difference: You needed 25 years to build up some memorable fun. Us girls just need to pitch up at the same place and we have enough fun to make you guys Kawasaki green of envy. Had this classic scenario this week-end. 2 girls found each other in a big parking lot and had a magical day riding and laughing. 2 Guys went to the SAME store to buy the SAME type of item (helmets) at the SAME time and missed each other. They both knew the other one was going there. See what I mean?

Oh, pipe down you two. You forrget Wellesley has been on many a trip with Mags and I. He will e fine. Way better than shaaring a room with some deprived female such as yourself.

El, Mags and HH did you forget that I was quite willing to share my double room:laughing3::laughing3: but not with such an ugly looking bear:badgrin::badgrin: who cannot handle System Checks:-(

It will be hell of a lot easier if we knew who the hell is who. It's not just 2 persons in the shop

I'm reasonably sure you "withdrew" you invitation to share your room on Friday already & then Wellesley was not under discussion at all? :?:tongue3:

@Swallow & El - you can stop yup-yupping about the cute bear! :evil: You are just jealous as you won't have a cute bear to look after you for the weekend! :tongue3::tongue3::tongue3: And Wellesley sent me a special message that he misses me & can't wait to spend that weekend with me - so, eat your heart out girls :headbang::tong:headbang:ue3::headbang::tongue3:

Can I suggest sending out an email to the forum membership database to get some more involvement from people that don't frequent the forum.
. AMZ can you arrange that :dontknow: perhaps also something on FB and the Twitter thingy :dontknow:

Has this been done? Can someone whose-opinion-cannot-be-challenged pls make it a sticky.

@747, I think it would be nice if those of us leaving from JHB get together and ride in a group, or groups. it is my intention to leave joey's at about 5am on the Thursday, after all it is about a 6-7 hour ride, so we should then get there at about lunch time'ish.
If anybody is interested, we can organise meeting points around the freeways.

The road from the Graaf Reinet side is tarred till about 2kms from the village. The road from the Middelburg side is still 30kms of reasonable dirt that I have done a couple of times on the Bandit. Some of the finest lamb cutlets on earth :drool::drool::drool:

What accommodation and meals is included in the R600? I assume that must be for tent space? I have downloaded the form, but no indication of price of rondawels for example. I may be in, if I will be allowed to drag one or two riding buddies along :cool:

Sorry Mallory, my first answer wasn't actually the best. Here's where the R600 comes from:




(From Siloam Village)

We can assist with the accommodation at this moment since that date is still available.

We do not sell or serve alcohol but they are free to bring their own to the premises accordingly.

The cost per person for the bungalow accommodation will be R70 per person per night and then 3 x meals a day will cost R130 per person.

So If I look at your dates it will be 3 nights and 9 meals per person totaling to R600 per person for the duration.

The price on the meals is based on our standard menu. I can however offer a budget menu @ R90 pp per day.

I have just spoken to Estelle, there is a discount for children, but she did not specify what it is. I think it is dependant on the type of accommodation one chooses to take.

She asked me to send her an email specifying the type of accommodation and number of adults and children we would be and she will respond with a quotation.

I have booked a Standard Bedroom for 3 nignts and 9 meals for one person and they debited my account with R600.00. On the Booking Form, they have 3 types of accommodation i.e. Bungalow/Backpacker/Camping accommodation, then Luxury Main En Suite Bedroom and then Standard Bedroom.So I would assume the rates would differ depending on which accommodation you take.

Quick serious question....
Just got a call from Estelle. Custom Bikers Group have just asked if they can have their gettogether on the same weekend at Oviston as us (+/- 80 bikers) ...they can cater for 180+.
So...does anyone have a major issue with MORE bikers being there while we are there :dontknow:
IMHO...might be good to have other bikers...we can tie em down and make em sign over to join TB :evil4:
Have to get back to her today...so please comment...

Yes they will Vespa. So dont see any issues here. Trying to find out more about their club. Have told Estelle that TB is a group of various bikers with a passion for safety and education. Being Custom Bikes and also the venue, I cant see them being malletjies.

Sorry but even though looked forward to seeing the peeps I know, wont be able to do this one. We are 2 couples with 3 and 2 children respectively. Some of the children are young, so the bunkbed separate men / women thing is just not going to work for us and if we rent a separate chalet at R1000 per day without food not really a bargain anymore. Siloam also charge us only R30 per day cheaper for a child's food (R90 in stead of R120). Becomes too expensive if you multiply it by 5 and my children are fussy and definitely wont finish eating the worth of that amount. So unless we come without kids (its a long weekend and family time) I cannot see us making this one. Enjoy all

Looking so forward to this :grin::grin:

Are there any groups going back to gearge/mosselbay side?:dontknow:
Reason for asking is, I might go visit some family down in Hartenbos when we leave Gariep and if there is people riding in groups back down then I would like to join in. I will be returning the 17th and most probably try stay over that night again at Oviston as I think 1300km might be a tuffy in one day :oops::evil4:

Well...Google maps gave me 3 options. N1/N12, N9 or the N2. I was thinking the N9 that goes past Middelurg and Graaff Reinet.

I don't mind traveling on my own, but thought if there is a group of bikes going that way then why not join them. Don't want to hold you up in your cage as I will most likely go slow (110-100, fast is 120 -130) sometimes as I have no screen on the bike :roll::oops:

Hi Ouens,

Looking more like I won't make it to Oviston. An ECU on mi Toy-ota said, "howzit! I keel you!" and Toyota are talking some beeeeg budget-busting numbers. My son was going to come along coz I know Bryan's kidz'l be there, etc.

Will let chu know.


The lil guy loves riding. A few years ago we lived in a smaaaaalllll dorp and I took him on a ride thru town to see the place.
Back home, his mother asked him what he saw.
He said, "Nothing! My eyes were closed!"

Quick question, I'm considering riding from Oviston to Gordons Bay after the weekend and then back to Jhb. I was considering going via (and sleeping over one or two nights in) Jeffreys Bay as I have never been there, and then spending one or two night in Gordons Bay with the MIL and family. Can anyone tell me if this is a good route and if there is a B&B where I can overnight in JB? Will then travel back to Jhb either Thursday/Friday or Friday/Saturday, so if somebody can recommend a stop over on the CT/Jhb route, that would also be appreciated.

See you soon:dance:

Oooo on the way back you can overnight at Philippolis Jail. I'm SERIOUS! Something like R150 per night and those beds are disturbingly comfy. You and your bike will be safe for you park her inside and close those heavy doors. http://www.wheretostay.co.za/oldjail/
The owner is in Kempton Park but he has an arrangement with people there to lock, unlock and clean.
Everything is nice and clean. Be there long before 17:00 and you can have a huge home made dinner for about R25 at Ko-ma-in that is in the main street. Dop you get either at the garage workshop or the hotel.

Those that dont say paid, just means that was at the time I received Siloam's update (30/07).

I have e-Mailed AMZ all the critical info...medical conditions etc

PLEASE DRESS WARMLY!!! Dit gaan koud wees...so OB's must be bought in BULK :drunken:

Message from Siloam:-
Hi SwallowTrust you are well ….

I just need to confirm the following.

The group has paid for 9 meals and 3 nights.

If we start on Thursday with lunch then we will end off on Sunday with breakfast,

Or will we start on Thursday with Supper and end off on Sunday with Lunch.

Could you possible urgently let me know accordingly, since I am finalizing the catering purchases tomorrow.

If I can make a suggestion, then I would rather say lets start Thursday with Dinner and end Sunday off with Lunch, since we are not sure of the arrival time of everyone in the group on Thursday. Unless they all are going to be there for Lunch.

Kindest regardsEstelle

I have advised Estelle that you will be there for Thursday supper - perhaps we can arrange padkos instead of Sunday lunch...


OK...thats me...enough admin :banghead:

Decided to go along after all. (Have many mates doing Oppiekoppie).
However, after all my cage hassles that cost a fortune I decided to go, and my son will join me. He's 14.

I will cage down in my wife's little car. We will also have some place for

Jeez, it's snowing like hang in Randburg!!!

Anyhow, We will be able to carry some kit for someone if needed. I am also willing to tag along behind everyone and "sweep" the tail-enders. my mobile no is:
072. 152. 2327.

We are ready to roll on Thursday. Only thing is, we have to return on Saturday already so I can spend some family time at home; real horse-trading happened.

Catch you at the meeting point.

ciao!


Oh, can the road captain please post final departure points, times, etc. I can't read thru 25 pages :( pwetty pliz.

Hey, Vespa1, will miss you, mate!

Essentials

Don't layer up too much, it won't help, air is your best insulation, too many layers = too tight = no air. Thermal undies and a good windproof jacket on top of your riding gear works best. Waterproofs also work well to keep the wind out. Warm socks and inners in your gloves also a good idea. When you take off your helmet, put on a beanie or cap.

Don't go mad on the carbs, eat proteins so you do not get carb spikes and then tired. A burger is great when you eat it and a bugger when it makes you tired and sleepy 50kms down the road

Keep hydrated, you lose as much if not more in cold weather as you do in hot weather. You expel a huge amount of fluid just breathing, (check visor) Coffee will dehydrate you, drink water or stuff with electrolytes as well as the coffee

If in a group, all put petrol at the same time, even if it is a top up, this makes for less stops and less likely that some one needs to make a detour.

Check who in your group has a puncture repair kit

Collect phone numbers at the meeting point.

Make sure some one has a map book. GPS does not always work.

Basic med kit, space blanket. Don't forget your med aid card.

If insured, maybe a call to insurer to make sure you have help number

Remember to look at your luggage and cash, ................................... then half the luggage and double the cash. Take credit card as back up.

Check tyres for nails or possible problems before you go. OK, off you go, do it now. :grin:


Above all else


Ride well

Stay safe
