Botrivier Run – 11 April 2010

On time (as usual) 08.45 the “clan” left N1 Winelands stop ,after discussing Rogers latest addition to his piercings,  heading out onto the N1 towards Klapmuts.

Tigers , Street Triples , Speed Triples , Rockets , a ST1050. Joining the Triumph 1 KTM & a GSXR.

Total of 19 riders(some pillions). Still can’t find Bob’s luggage.

Weather perfect. After the first 30 km’s the speed limit was increased. The Rocket Tourer playing sweeper (thanks Eugene edit: Only a pleasure!). Through Franschoek and over the pass towards Theewaterskloof.

As soon as the KTM broke away three Tigers would chase. Almost like a challenge cup. Smoke break on the dam wall then onto Vyeboom towards Grabouw. Onto the N2 towards Houwhoek and up the pass. Again there goes the KTM with the three Tiger (musketeers) in hot pursuit. The Zard exhaust of JJ howling. The words in his helmet cannot be printed. Something like , “oh hang I better go after the KTM”

BotRivier was dead , but then the sound of the triples lived the place up.

Coffee , toast , eggs etc……(even sour yogurt)  more coffee , more toast. Mr & Mrs Tauca decided a STREET is the way Mrs T should go. A live band arrived which was our “Q” to leave.

Standing around looking at Dudley’s latest additions to his stickers , which has earned him the title of The Sticker King. Tauca’s Scorch pipes woke up BotRivier. JJ taking plenty photo’s (why the rear end of Tauca’s Speed we will never know). Mrs Bernicchi’s new waist coat with extra badges.

Thanks to one and all for joining.

Look forward to the next run , aimed at Villiersdorp on Sunday the 9th May.

Go RAT’ters.
