Laas week se D&D

So, dit was ‘n heel maan, lekker aand. Die Sewe Dappers het begin met ‘n “search,locate and lekker ry” van ou Cruiser en toe blaas Stealth’s se wiel af. ‘n Groot Sny… hy haal sy band bietjie af, spoeg, plak en bomb… en ons is reg om te ry…baie impressed.

BeeegDipper sonder die ou dippie was nogsteeds ubber lekker veral met so lekker “Squirrel Burner” liggie wat ek by Clinton “Raodie Ninja” gekoop het. Daar was a “wattled” Kiewit wat vir ons geloer het, en n dikkop ook. Nee dit was nie ekke nie… Na die einde van Vetseun het iets n bietje juicy gevoel en dus toe ek sien my voor wiel is pap.

Maar moenie bevrees wees nie… Nico spoeg dit, toe seel dit sonder enige stans…. Nico kry nie punctures nie…punctures kry vir Nico.

Toe ry ons verder… ou Wash-en-Go is geploeg..wild.. toe moet ons bietjie griewelike teerpad ry.. en recover op n ongelooflike avontuurlike Ghost Ride op Python. Qt het die “Rooi Rots” gevind… van daar af het ons op Limbo lane ge-cruise en toe het ons amper oor n baba Croc gery… kan jy dit glo…wragtag. Dit was nou n goeie plek om te stop en warm, pure, plaas koffie uit te deel en te chat.

Daarna was dit n baaie lank singletrack wat uiteindelik vasloop in die ander lang singletrack.. “The Trail that Eric shall name” … snot spoed daar af.. WJ het vir Oupa gewys hoe om van jou fiets af te ..dinges en so vinnig weer op dat ‘n mense nie heeltemaal seker is of hy eintlik iets gedoen het nie…iets soos ROTFLMAO…

Van daar af het ons Batman Tunnel en Blair Witch gery .. shabeen queen en ‘n jeeptrack huistoe.

Baie baie dankie al julle wonderlike donker dinge, dit was ‘n groot plesier om saam met julle te ry.

Tot volgende D&D

Keep it real

D&D Urban Assualt : Oupa and da Lightie – www.darkndirty.co.za

About last night.

So having accepted Oupa’s invite for the ride last night I was very excited. It has been a while and I have been wanting to test my Squirrel Burner light from Clint-Roadie-Ninja (who led last weeks ride.. hey report dudes?) for sometime now…

At the parking lot it felt crisp and it became obvious that we were the only brave souls for the nights journey. Always a privilege to ride with Oupa, he is a REAL LEGEND!!! We cruised through PVR and chatted away then shot down End of the world (the original singletrack trail) not the jeep track… that rocky trench halfway down is now almost rideable again J

We hit that other single track which eventually flowed into “Dark Side of the Moon” Single track… wow man it has been such a looong time since we have ridden this one. Tons of fun, turns and little rocky bits to keep ya smiling… and ofcourse the obligatory Pink Floyd song playing in mind J

“You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me

And if the cloud bursts thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon”

So Oupa drags my butt up the hill and we cruise the airbase singletracks and Oupa conquers an old kneescraping demon. We cruised down River road and took Botha through Irene and I had to work hard to try keep up with Oupa up Nelmapius. We swung down the “Bunny-Hop Alley” for some extra fun under the crispy clear night of a thousand stars.

Oupa had been checking the temp through out he ride and from a 7,5 degree start it went up to an 8.4 and then eventually to a 6.5 near the end.. fabulous weather and a pleasure to be out there.

As Oupa commented, not bad weather only bad gear… and being adventure racers… go quickly get to know what is good gear to make GREAT Weather J

Thanks Roadie-Ninja the Squirrel Burners absolutely ROCK DUDE!

We wrapped the journey up just after nine, just under 30km or SHMILEAGE… Thanks Oupa for a truly enjoyable ride!!!

For everyone else, see ya next week…. or…

“See you on the Dark Side of the Moon
