Title: Your bike/tent/camping pics.
Post by: mtr89 on November 11, 2014, 05:11:30 pm
I've searched for a thread with your bikes by your tents or favourite camp pics but couldn't find anything.
If I'm being doff and there already is a thread then mods please merge them.
Otherwise I'd love to see your pics.
I'll get the ball rolling

December 2011 on our way to Cradock, doing a round trip.  It was raining too much to camp at Ford Fordyce, so we asked the caretaker at the golf club if we could camp there. 

Kally was the main peanut in the packet  :biggrin:

They even gave us wood and hot showers and I think we paid something like R25 per person.  :deal:

Yogurt it right.  Let's say it was not my best moment.  Surprised my son did not turn round and head back home at that stage.  I suppose he felt that he needed to stay with me to safe me from myself.

Camping in a river bed is risky.
Flash floods can start a hundred kms away.
You may make it out in time.

Here is a link to my google album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Kox4C8VT2TqF7UA67 (https://photos.app.goo.gl/Kox4C8VT2TqF7UA67)
A sort of order to the photo's are:
1. Last town before border post
2. Pontdrift borderpost
3. Dry riverbed and Solomons wall right in it
4. All the pan photos are from Kukome island
5. Sleepover on our way back

NB!!!
DONT let anybody go alone to ride the pan. 2 of us got lost for 2 hours with a gps.
Safe side is not to not ever go further than 30m from the edge of the pan.
If you ride on the pan stay at least 100m behind the vehicle in front of you if he gets stuck ALWAYS keep one vehicle NOT on the pan. You can not walk to look for help!
The "darker" appearance on the pan is dangerous
The "fluffy" dry crumble areas are safer
Keep momentum Keep momentum Keep momentum

Awesome! Didnt you stay at Kukonje Island rather than kokome?

And remember that the pans are very corrosive.

They are great fun to ride on but if you get properly stuck you can be there for hours. Friends of mine got a GSA AC stuck for almost 5 hours in the mud.

Out of interest how did you get lost without being able to use your track back function on your gps or being able to follow your tracks?

These pictures are of the last time I used a tent. I did not pitch it. Too much effort after a long, hard day of riding. Here I just spread the tent out on the ground and slept on top of it. Was dark already. Only the next morning I noticed the zillions of spiders who also had made their homes amongst the leaves on the ground. We made good bedfellows. The next time I took a hammock with. Much easier to ‘erect’ and more comfortable.

Didn't all the /6's have a single front disc?
The R75/6 did because a mate has one.
My R80/7 had twin front discs.

The 60/6 came out with drum brakes. Maybe some people fitted a disk later on. But they left the factory with drums. Yes, the 75/6 had the single disk in front. I assume BMW did this because of it being a bigger bike (stopping power, etc.). Whereas the 90S came out with twin disks in front (most likely for the same reasons).

St Martin's Mission, Lesotho. The black mud en route to Katse was a handful. Friendly locals. Just love Lesotho.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190311/877ff595f677d09b3b1f905b44979234.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190311/e1215dcec59687b3f9d3bf3587f5a838.jpg)

Your pictures remind me of this poem by Robert Louis Stevenson:

The Vagabond

Give to me the life I love,
Let the lave go by me,
Give the jolly heaven above
And the byway night me.
Bed in the bush with stars to see,
Bread I dip in the river --
There's the life for a man like me,
There's the life for ever.

Let the blow fall soon or late,
Let what will be o'er me;
Give the face of earth around
And the road before me.
Wealth I seek not, hope nor love,
Nor a friend to know me;
All I seek, the heaven above
And the road below me.

Or let autumn fall on me
Where afield I linger,
Silencing the bird on tree,
Biting the blue finger;
White as meal the frosty field --
Warm the fireside haven --
Not to autumn will I yield,
Not to winter even!

Got it like that. Originally it had spot lights attached to it and I guess it stabilized the KTM front fender at high speed but I didn't really need any if that. It was made by the same person that did the subframe braces.

In Bulawayo, a long time ago.

Would that be the campsite in the middle of town? I liked Bulawayo, wonder how it looks like these days?

You are right. Not far from Milton High School. Some of the most beautiful street lanes in the world I had the pleasure I meandering through there.

I notice some of the camp sites were in dry river beds...?
I read somewhere that more people in the Sahara Desert die drowning in flash floods (camping in wadis) than die from thirst.  :eek7:

I had that experience many years back in Botswana. I had grown up with dry river beds. All I knew as a child. I could clearly distinguish where water had run recently and where water had not run for ages, or any at all. Now I am not so sure anymore.

Yes, you shouldn't just camp in any old riverbed willy-nilly. I've heard of plenty rude awakenings wild camping in Namibia. Know where you are and keep an eye on the weather along it's catchments.
