The road up the Byrne Private reserve, was long, narrow and windy with some amazing little switchbacks...it passed through a slimy path in some indigenous forest as well...when you get at the top...it overlooks the little hamlet of Byrne...storybook, crofters like cottages and large old oak trees...something like i imagine the Hobbits lands would look like....it was also very steep coming down....but oh what a little ride...roxens offered it up, and White Rhino had the good sense to add it to our ride on saturday....ill never forget that one...

Simon en Kie.....wat kan 'n mens se? Bleddie goeie werk in AL die departments. Ek dink die is nou my 7de bash gewees en dis defnitief een van die bestes. Die kos, venue, roetes en paaie.....ag man dit was uit die boonste rakke. Behalwe vir Draadn@@i was die res van die geselskap bevange. Het paar mense met wie ek al lank tjol praat op die forum in werklike lewe ontmoet uiteindelik  en Subie jy is nie so kak soos wat die mense se jy is nie!!!  :peepwall: :pot:

Badballie aan die ander kant.....kyk dit is nou vir jou 'n ander storie.  :deal: Gaaf om vir Jeff (The Badger) ook te ontmoet.

En Sithe.....loop skeit....jy is net jaloers omdat jy nie daar was nie.  :thefinger:

Laurika en Tweets.....soos altyd great om saam met julle te kuier...en of dit nou bike of kar is ek ry enige tyd saam met julle.

Dankie dat julle my omgepraat het om saam te kom.

Roxenz.....dankie vir jou ook....jy weet vir wat.  :thumleft:

Ons het besluit om te Stoetie tot in Nottingham en van daar mielies te gooi. Hy sou 'n semi geky het as hy ons gesien het.

Tussen ons drie is dit die slegste beplanning wat ons nog ooit gedoen het vir enige trip.....maar aan die einde het alles mooi uitgewerk....wel amper alles.

i took only my phone...so here are the pichas i took...thanks to Tweets and Carrots..the company and riding as always, wonderful, lots of laughs and good adventures...great to see Woolybugger again..his accommodation compliments of Adventurer..... (not the snooze outside though...there was a bed)

Wonderful to see so many people from Northwest and Gauteng who also took the effort to come, perhaps next time more Kznners would also pitch...but perhaps it was such a lovely bash, because it was small and intimate...

we elected to trailer the bikes , as we really wanted to spend the time riding the area, and by jove...did we ride the area properly....'

no incidents, no breakdowns, just sheer riding pleasure.....here some non riding pics.... O0(http://)

Post by: GundaGunda on March 25, 2013, 06:04:37 pm
I have to say to EssBee and all the folks that put this bash together that this was one of the lekkerest weekends I have ever had. Good everything – company, organization, riding – da works.

Next Year ? Same place, same time of year would get my vote.

A couple of folks have nagged me for a while to show them my favourite mountain, Ngilanyoni, and it really does not take much twisting to oblige. I put together a 220Km route that took in Ngilanyoni, and the river road on the South of the Mkomzi up to the Ixopo area.

I must admit I screwed up the route in two ways. First of all I decided to slab it on tar to the Mid Illovo dorpie to save time before dropping into the Lovu valley, but what I thought was tar turned out to be stony and bumpy gravel and we should have just taken gravel roads. I am sure this poor planning cost a lot of time.

The second error of judgement was the Mkomazi river road. It was a lot longer and slower than I remember – especially of you are still wrestling descent  demons like I am at the moment.

But it was still a great day in the saddle nonetheless, and a big thanks to the four who came along for the trip.

I have just a few pics, and most from my helmet cam that had got horribly dusty and I forgot to wipe it.

My spot – and Jane the ostrich.

The trip onto the mountain was quite overgrown and I nearly did not notice this log’s mate lying in the grass. Sorry about the dust on the camera’s lens.

This is probably the most overgrown time of year, and this part of the “road” onto the mountain is quite a thorny tangle.

I noticed a bump on my forearm today, gave it a bit of a scratch and out popped about 3mm of thorn. I know where I got it.

Just to rub it in for Pistol Pete......but geez this is one lekker bike. Clearly not the suspension of the KTM but after playing around with the settings I found a combination that worked very lekker.....(vra maar vir Mooch....  :biggrin: :peepwall: :pot:)

And no Pete....it is not for sale!  :deal:

And with his Think Bike strobes on.....it makes riding much so much safer especially if you are a big group and it becomes dark end you have turns offs or stops next to the road. People can see you miles away.

Guys, remind me in future to be careful with my -err- siZulu.

An elderly lady came past as we were stopped and about to ride onto Ngilanyoni, and I told her in my bestest siZulu of our intentions.

I wondered why I got a very strange look from her.

It seems as if, after consulting with my colleagues Mnelisi and Xolile, I did not use the verb "climb" as in Edmond Hilliary and Everest, but rather "mount" as in Casanova and the fair young maiden.

So I told her that we were going to copulate with the mountain.

Maybe I should stick to English or hand signs.  ::)

3. Non WD's (we will work on that) Andre and Ilse with some of their beautiful girls
4. Raka and Sasha. DJ's always pull the girls.
5. The Badger and Fran. get a room
6. Andre and me, ok ok, feel the love
7. Cave Girl and daughter Pebbles, thats what its all about.

There was also a lot of 'Show and Tell"
I didnt get a pic of Carrots doing a comparisonwith the bat when Cave Girl was 'sexing' it but I believe the bat won.

1. Mrs The Badger and Sasha have syncronised arms
2. Cave Girl has meat but Peat has a phone
3. Tommy Transalp had two thumbs. leonDude is so impressed !
4. EssBee has a brain but its a bit scrambled after all the planning
5. EssBee has horns on his head like the devil
6. Mrs EssBee has two, um, well look for yourself
7 Andre has 4 fingers and girls have tonsils
8. Raka has a big one (or is wishing for one)
9. Andre has a D cup

Then there was the ride. Thanks Jeff for a great day.

a. saddle up
b. and ride out
c. I had to slow down so Peat could overtake on his GSA
d. Going up
e. Going down
f. In KZN we have potholes and wash-aways that will swallow your bike
g. And a bit of slot car racing. Not fun getting your wheel stuck in there, luckily the power of the KLR could handle it.
h. The reliable one
i This is what its all about.

White Rhino - your remark about Moochs' Katoem being the only one....yeah, I'd also realised that. Some find it strange. We're just a little slow here in KZN and it's taken us a while to see the light....hence all the Beemers.  :pot:

lovely DB...what camera did you use for the riding shots?

GoPro Hero 2 mounted on the side of my helmet. The remote (wifi) you can see on my wrist. I had it set to take a pic every 5 secs so had hundreds to sift through last night. The next day I had it mounted to my wrist for the tubing trip down the river.

I also use it mounted to the front of my surfboard facing back at me. As I paddle for a wave I hit the remote on my wrist and video the complete wave ride. Works great.

@Dirty Boy

Everything in my body was saying go right but was carrying too much speed as I came out of the left at the top. Lack of skill and experience resulted in a sudden stop in the ditch at the bottom compounded by my PIG hitting the ditch and landing on top of me. Worst injury was my EGO :-[  Ribs shoulder neck and thigh all a little tender. just hoping to be OK to be able to run the Two Oceans 21km this Sat. A small crash but my first. will be spending more cash on protective clothing in the near future  ;D

PIG has dented and scratched tank. Bent crash bars and left mirror. Broken indicator, fairing bracket, fairing and wind deflector. Philip AKA Raka has kindly offered me his old front fairing which was my biggest concern. My other big problem is trying to reimburse him as he will only agree to a few beers the next time we hook up.

Still really enjoyed it. what a beautiful part of the world. I found the climbs quite daunting as a novice but the steep down hills are still my biggest fear :)

Post by: laurika on March 26, 2013, 12:07:54 pm
hm, there were a lot of  switchbacks and tight corners on the downhills, they seem to be more fun to me going up, than going down them...but i think most people would admit to that...the loose surface rock and gravel just complicates it a bit more...and knowing the drops are 2km down, does not help....was fun though...

Ouch. Yup, you are right about the lack of skill and experience. I was in the same place just a few years back when I started riding. Always over cooking it in the corners and KLR's are not known for good brakes either.
I feel I have got better with time and noticed a sudden improvement once I bought an old MX bike. You learn to read the path ahead very quickly on a plastic.

I hope this little incident wont stop you from joining us again.

Any of you bastids that rode back along the gravel road between Himeville and Nottingham Rd on Sunday would have seen me truly toiling into a headwind on a mountain bike to ride 100km. A few DS bikes cruised past me and I was most, most envious.

It is appreciated.

If you could do the same for us next year it would be really great!

Thanks to everyone for a lekker bash and especially to Essbee and Co for the wonderful organising. You guys have such great riding country round that part of the world. Gotta go back there.

Gunda Gunda - that ride you led on Saturday was awesome and the views from the knoll were something else. Quite daunting riding across the saddle onto the knoll, knowing its only a few metres wide with sheer drops on either side and quite a little climb up onto the top of the knoll.

Thanks to my wife, son - Superoo, Tommy and Grantis,  for making it such an enjoyable bash.

Til the next one.

Carrots, Laurika and Myself decided to trailer our bikes to a caravan park in the Nottingham Road Area, and from there do dirt where ever we could. 
Here we had just off loaded the bikes, after a restive trip from JHB on Thursday afternoon.

(http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu277/TweetieWD/WD%20KZN%20Bash%202013/DSCF7940_zps173b8a30.jpg)

After brekkie, the three of us ( Carrots, Laurika, and myself) took the lower Loteni road. About half way to Underberg, we turned east toward Impendle, and work our way on dirt, virtually to Richmond.
Underway , on the Loteni road, Carrots needed to do a No2, ( He has serious Jippo Guts) so Laurika and myself carried on for a while then stopped and waited for him in the shade od some wattle trees.
Waiting for the action

On we went and it was not long or Galloping Carrots AGAIN need to do a No2 HaHA. So Laurika and I again continue some way.   We cross this bridge with a very inviting river down there. Here we stop and each go take a dip, whilst waiting for The Wortel

Pic of the river in perspective. Beautiful country this. So much water !, just running into the ocean and NO, NIL agriculture. What a waste.

In Boston we topped off the bikes tanks, and ask a local where we can by cold beers etc. He indicated a shebeen across the road, with just its red roof sticking out behind the tall grass.  Off we went and what a delight we found. Next to the local trading post, is this VERY neat and clean shebeen with the lady on duty giving us excellent service.

Having arrived at the High-Over Sactuary / bash venue, in temps of 33 – 35 Deg C, we quickly unpacked and headed straight for the river for another dip.

Next morning (Saturday) instead of doing the local valey run with the organisers, we decided to venture the area.  So with White Rhino as our guide, we visited the Byrne valley. We went up a cul-de-sac road, and winded our way  up, and up a narrow little raod to a look-out point high above the valley.

Dit is glad nie fun om bike af trek van die pad (gepaste spot moet natuurlik gesoek word eers ver uit sig uit) af nie.....helmet en al jou kit uit te trek....en jou brein het nou klaar vir jou rektum begin se hy kan maar begin ontspan ne.....toilet paper te soek wat onder in die sak weggesteek is en met verskeie toue en rekke vasgemaak is natuurlik....te begin hardloop na 'n bos toe en in die hardloop jou broek begin losmaak....en dan hoop jy skeit nie binne in jou broek wat los hang(knee braces en bike boots verhoed 'n veilige afstand) of op jou hakskene nie......paar keer per dag.  :pottytrain5: :pottytrain4:

Nee etter....my senuwees was meer gedaan as my maag.........

Om dit die ergste van alles te maak.....die toilet papier...was in my badkamer sakkie....en my deodorant het alles leeg gespuit in die sakkie(proppie af gekom) in...so die toiletpapier......was papnat vol Brut...dit het letterlik "kak" lekker geruik......maar my poephol het gelyk en gevoel soos die Japanese vlag.

WoW, where did the week go, seems like the weekend was a month ago!!
A big thank you to all the organisers, as a newbie I didn't know what to expect, loved every minute, even getting towed out of the valley :xxbah:
The big eye opener was where you guys on the GS1200s can go, I never expected it...and even some of you had passengers, BIG respect!!
Maybe time to get a BMW (only a little one)
Let's do it again VERY soon!

I've expressed elsewhere my boundless appreciation for the KZN team who organised this bash - it simply was the best ever!

Will get through the photies my wife took over the weekend during the next coupla days.  In the meantime, here is one from my cellphone: I  got the impression that this may be the abode of our esteemed Gunda-Gunda!    :biggrin:

Stopped in at Highover on Sun a trip to show some friends the area - in the 4-wheeler.

I asked the boss-lady if we would be welcome there again.

She said not only would we be welcome back, but they would be angry if we went somewhere else.  ;D

And I found a nice gravel road from Qunu falls through the forests ( I was in the Forester!) down to the Lufafa river and out onto the R64 about half way between Ixopo and richmond - lovely area.

We were on the R64 about 07:45 - a few Km out of  Richmond - the whole Lovu valley below us was full of mist - stunning. I imagined a pic taken from the Ixopo side of the Hella Hella pass with mist in the Mkomazi valley below - wonder if it ever happens ??

Just recently drove through Richmond, and did the route that we returned to Rosetta on. Found a little dirt road.... decided to follow it, and came out at the back end of Midmar Dam, Then took a left on dirt, and went through the forest area on the L4 (??) Came out on the Dargle road...... Man! what a lekker trail! :drif: Next time I'm down there, it's on my bucket list of trails in the Midlands area  :3some:
