Good fences, great toy run

On Tuesday I posted about our participation in the 2015 Bloemfontein Toy Run. The ride started a large wholesale shopping center, went through town and ended at the Tempe Military Base, Armor Museum. 

Many of you may know that when Grant and I tour on our motorbike, I take photos from the pillion seat. I've written several bike and travel articles for adventure magazines using these images! 

Sunday was no exception and I took photos and videos from the beginning to the end of the outing! 
The entrance to the military base with permanent exhibits here and throughout the grounds 

This soldier, like almost everyone we passed, was taking photos of the bike parade. A large tank resides under a shady palm tree against the concrete wall
The parked motorbikes behind a chain link fence (the long truck in the background is traveling along the N1 National Freeway  which passes close by Bloemfontein between Cape Town and Johannesburg )
