We had a quick bite to eat at a Craft Mar­ket and the South African police couldn’t get enough of the Harley Davidsons.

Dave gave a slideshow talk at the club about his jour­neys across the world and after­wards we had a huge braai with three burn­ing fires. It was then off to the Gar­den Court to rest.
