TG Newsletter: OPPI HOEK

Oppi Hoek

(25 June 2011)

Griet is back in his stable and my bum’s itching for a ride. With all good intentions – I had to go choose the ys-piepie-koudste day of the year! I was dead set on my ride and Justin just shook his head. What is that saying about biker chickens? Something about a trollie and not being on it?!?

We came…


We ran back inside!

Having a middle name like ‘Harregat’ - all was not lost. Still geared-up, we mounted our bakkie and headed to the roadhouse for hot-choc, slap-tjips and burgers. This winter my ass seems to be growing faster than the temperature can drop.

Our waitress seemed a bit bang. I guess trying to show off on my knee-down skills didn’t impress her as much as I thought it would?!?

From there we took corner 1, 8 and 12 with HEATED passion and ended our eventful ride at OPPI HOEK!

We dopped (responsibly)…

We danced (like white chixs)…

We sang (like Dozi)…

And we STILL froze (…like INTENSELY man!) – note how the facial expression changed back to something very similar to first thing in da morning.

Ma se kinjers… I’m still defrosting. And in da words of Jack Parrow – Awê!


If you're familiar with the rural concept of the honesty bar, this honesty newsletter ain't much different... I'm a completely un-paid journalist, relying instead on readers using the honour system. You read the newsletter and then leave an amount you see fit for the entertainment you've received.

If you don't find it particularly amusing, then you fork out NO dosh. I won't stop sending you the letter – it is still mahala to those that count their coins and... I love sharing my stories.
