Dennis and Lohan catch a chuckle - probably talking about a Honda

it wouldn't fit inside the door... so we had to park outside

Saturday the 20th March 2010, some of us met for breakfast at the Block House One Stop (a few had departed earlier on Friday). Departing after nine, we rode via Heilbron, Petrus Steyn and Bethlehem to Fouriesburg.

Sunday after breakfast we rode out onto our Redline Run Poker Run, which took us to Ficksbrug, Clocolan, Marquard, Senekal, Bethlehem, Clarens and back to base in Fouriesburg.

Best-hand and the R480 kitty went to William Cox with a pair of fours and a Joker. Well done William, maybe the R480 will come in handy when he fixes his big Triumph bomber.

Monday after breakfast we said our farewells and headed for home. A great time was had by all, with a little rain on Friday and Saturday.

I did 1000 kilometres on the my Run, after refuelling and riding twice around the block

Next year we'll do it all again, just differently and better :-) See ya there.
