    Apart from the obviously nice company you'll be in you will slave away at the TB stand on the Bethlehem airshow until 21:00 on Saturday night en probably have to brave freezing weather, so bring warm clothes. I've already taken the drink orders, so if you drink anything else than RH & Coke or are a vegetarian you'll have to bring it with. Fort Knox now officially fullhouse, unless backseat of a car, haystack and dog kennels count as accomodation, in which case we still have an opening or two

    Meeting at Rand Airport offramp- not on it - just pull over there - before N3 split from N12 - I think BMWfan said 5:30 Saturday morning?
    I'd rather be riding......

    Just to make sure the dates are 23 and 24 August.
    Meeting at the Rand airport offramp at 05:30
    That is how I made my arrangements.
    I just hope we do not make use of toll roads, I avoid them, worse than the plague.

    Last I heard Villiers-Frankfort-Tweeling-Reitz road was in a very sorry state, please be careful, last time I drove it had huge potholes ops: I'd rather pay and stay on the N3 till Warden offramp, but that's from a cager's perspective I suppose

    Just thought I'd share today's TB article in the Harrismith Chronicle. Let's hope it helps to pull in the fishes on Saturday

    I am in Hennenman at the moment and my map book is at home. Perhaps somebody can check it out? It's definitely not the shortest route but I think it will drive faster. Unfortunately you won't miss Wilge toll plaza

    I am along for the ride and I don't really mind which road we take. I suppose it is not going to be a mad dash down there, so even the Heilbron, PetrusSteyn, Reitz road is OK. Daytime visibility should help as well.

    Mad Artist and I have just come back from Clarens.

    The Villiers-Frankfort road is an absolute mess. Massive potholes - we even had to drive at 40 during the day. Rest of road is crumbling apart.

    But from Frankfort-tweeling-reitz it is not so bad. Apart from some serious road works where one lane is closed down - so all traffic is filteres through one lane. A bit frustrating but at least traffic moves.

    I still think it is the quickest way to get there though.

    Just a thought.

    Just checked it out in my map book. From Villiers via Frankfort, Tweeling, Reitz to Bethlehem is 152km, from Villiers via Warden to Bethlehem is 182km, 30km + one extra tollgate the price to pay for a better condition road, up to you. Please be careful. I will be at the airshow at 07:30 because the exhibitors must be in before 8. The show was already very busy today, gonna buzz tomorrow. Already a MCC in Harrismith called me today to say they will make a turn during the morning; possibly response to the newspaper article & info they got from the bikeshops. The only problem is that I only got 4 gate passes. I called the main organiser this afternoon but he is adament that he cannot make exceptions because there are many large exhibitors and everyone gets 4 tickets only. Seeing that we got the stand for free I didn't want to push further. One pass I will be using and one I have given to a local disciple who's bringing the fold-up tables tomorrow morning and helping me until you arrive. That leaves us with two passes and the rest of us will pay R40 per person admission. Perhaps we can divide the balance amongst all of us. We got a double stand close to the entrance gate, I will definitely see you when you arrive. I mentioned that one or two of our bikes :roll: are part of the display, the stand is big enough that the bikes can park on it; if anybod's funny at the gate and I am not around just throw the name "Migael" around, he's driving around on a black quad - I asked him about bringing in the bikes (though I lied a bit about the numbers ). No driving out once you're in. Cars only allowed to load or unload stuff and then go to outside parking. Looking forward to have you all here, drive safely. Today the weather was quite pleasant, so it may not be that cold after all . For those of you who do not have my cell no just in case: oh ate for - ate oh faif - tree sevn nain sevn. C u soon

    I will happily sponsor a ticket seeing as I can't make the trip.
    When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!
