    So you're saying we are like the founder-gang of the TB bash?

    Indeed! We will have it in Blouberg Strand, so that on one of the days we can ride out and visit a Capie or two.

    Blouberg? Nah, too windy. If you guys insist on traveling all the way here for a kick bottom bash, I shall ensure that it is so

    Maybe hold it in the province where the most representation comes from?
    Still too far ahead to plan anything now. Will figure that out closer to the time.
    For now just put TB National Bash on the books as a must-do.

    I, for one, would be quite happy to use the same venue as this year, now that I am informed of what is required. Would maybe need to pick a different time of year and not the windy month of August.

    Thanks Fox, nice pics. Besides, nothing was lost in translation, as cobby is man enough and educated enough to praat engels with me when alone. Those times, I struggled was usually when I got smoked in, which was about 90% of the time in Oviston.

    So, for next year's bash, I suggest the following: I challenge the smokers to put in a smoke free day and instead use the money they would have spent on cigarettes, instead on a donation (for TB or TSOR or any other good reason to help others). Now I know that this is impossible as none of them do have the discipline to go without a smoke for a day (!), so let's be realistic, make it a challenge on cutting down for a day to the bare minimum and check, how much more you would have smoked and donate that money on the ciggies you smoke less. On a honesty basis. No need to make this a smoking/non-smoking debate, just a simple challenge.

    Any takers?

    Are you going to match them Rand for Rand then?

    Not a bad idea, but maybe we should challenge TB to come to their National Bash first?

    Took the challenge a long time ago Stubbed out my last cigarette at 7pm 13 October 1999 and never touched another since At two packs of Gauloise Plain a day, I am now saving R1500/month. To convert that to biker terms ... that is enough petrol to ride 3000kms
    Maturity is a grossly overrated achievement

    Well, Dgener8, whilst you where busy entertaining one specific person of the female kind, I was busy cementing my friendships at the laager, ne?

    In terms of the challenge, I have to think about it. As a single non-smoker to match the challenge one by one is a touch one-sided. But I put my money where my mouth is, and will start with a R 500.00 offer. Should any smokers get serious about this, we can collect a good amount of money and everybody gets home healthier than under normal circumstances. A win/win situation for all!

    So now, whilst I appreciate those guys who have addressed this already, it won't stop me from promoting the idea further, i.e. TB'ers need to attend first of all, and secondly, consider the challenge.
    You don't ride in the rain, you don't ride!

    A PITY we have to wait THAT long....


    And as for FreeBird:

    'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
    And this bird you can not change.
    Oh... oh... oh... oh... oh...
    And the bird you cannot change.
    And this bird you cannot change.
    Lord knows I can't change.
