Title: " ONS GAAN NOU RY ". EC-Bash and beyond
Post by: woody1 on May 15, 2015, 10:16:28 am
Sal maar die RR in daai VREEMDE taal doen anders kla die mense wat nie my taal wil of kan leer nie.  So verskoon maar as my GRAMMAR nie lekker is nie  :imaposer:

I will do this RR in English so no WB comments please.  

I do it so that Takanobu Ito President & Chief Executive Officer of Honda or the Honda South African CEO might pick up on this story and take this amazing 31 year old Honda XL - 600 that took all of my abuse over 4015 km and put it into a museum. I will accept a new Transalp as soon as it is released in South Africa to go and test it on the same route. :imaposer:

So it all started with one of my Bucketlist items.  I want to ride Grootrivierspoort some day. Since the best bash in the country is in that area I planned to do it during the EC - Bash time.

So I was told not to do it on my S-10 as the chaps know how I like to live in comfort and really load a bike to its max.

Plans were put together to use the XL-600 and do the Grootrivier poort entry to the Bash. We would have been a few including Jupiter the leader, Dorsland, my son Sweisie on his XT 600 and myself.

Dorsland had to pull out because of a knee operation.  My son decided to get married, so it left me and Jupiter to go and ride... because we love to ride.   :ricky: :ricky:

Now I believe that only a broken bike is transported on a trailer, so I decided to make it a MY holiday and asked the boss at home if I could take off 2 weeks to go and ride.

Understanding as she is always she agreed as long as I take a couple of pictures of old farm houses that she could paint.  So it was settled.

I love to ride in May as I find it to be the best time with the least amount of rain expected. I love the fresh morning and the perfect day temperatures.

As I am not a great writer, you okes will have some pictures and a little comment to keep the RR on track.

I left Friday morning 1st of May destination Geluksburg to sleep at Draads place.

Other side of Heidelberg I got onto the first dirt.  When I got to Villiers and stopped at the single lane bridge I could hear some superbikes being revved to max.  Must have been a stupid RALLY of some sorts happening there.

From Villiers the roads took me on the Standerton road past Cornelia and eventually I arrived in Vrede for a nice breakfast.
The road before Harrismith was not really nice to ride, but I would later find out that the roads in the Transkei is the worst.  :imaposer:

Lots of mist on the section near Cornelia, but because I am on holiday and have 2 weeks to ride at a leasurly pace, I did mind it at all.

It is a complete mind change riding my S-10 and now on a small 600 cc bike that is happy to be ridden at 4500 rpm giving me a top speed of about 100 km/h.

From Harrismith I took the road to Geluksburg.
Never being there or knew of the history of the place.

Draad tell me that they have a HEL type kloof there as well where the people stayed out of sight and out of trouble.
BUT !!!!!!!!! the government of the time picked up that the inbreeding in such a closed community is a concern and moved the people from this valley and settled them on a piece of land that became Geluksburg.

Geluksburg has nothing, but still it exists.  Draad rides around in his 4 wheel buggy to buy beer at the local shop / shebeen.
Then rides around the corner and stops at a house. The lady is the 'LOCAL' butcher.  Cold room and all in the backyard. Buy some steaks and wors.
Milk from another 'HOUSE' and so it carries on.
Lekker RUSTIG op Geluksburg.
I had a wonderful time thanks Draad and thank your wife as well for putting me up for the night.
I had my Zamalek and tried to suck it through a dry wors straw... but it did not work.  :imaposer:

Day 2 took me all along the Lesotho border on the KZN side.
Through the Kamberg part to Himeville where I had a quiche and salad...... must be the clean air and dirt roads that make me do things like this.
I saw Twe- Twes pink ladies along the road as well..  :peepwall:

Planned to sleep just outside Kokstad, but when I got there everything was locked up and closed.  Cell number on the reception door, but no cell reception, so I hit the road again and found a place to sleep in Matatiele.

Back from shopping.  Speedo gear picked up at Honda. R302.88.  No news from Honda about the availability of the side panels

Day 3 I leave Matatiele early.  Today its over Naudes Nek on to Rhodes and try and find a spot near Elliot.

The roads are in relatively good condition and on top of Naudes Nek I stop for a photo or two.

Eish I don't know but some Kroonstad HOOLIGAN and Big Dom plakked their stickers on the bord... :imaposer:

Down the other side to arrive in Rhodes to find that the Hotel has closed down.  Was planning to have brunch at the Hotel.

Went over to the INFORMATION office and the guy told me to go to Walkerbouts Inn down the road.

Had a lekker toasted sarmie and 2 cups of filter coffee.  Some interesting things on the walls and in the display cabinets to take you back to your youth and even before my time.

Left Rhodes and hit the road to Elliot.

Man oh man.. if you want to practice riding on MARBLES this is the section to go and do it.  :ricky:

Suddenly I see the sign  Bastervoetslaan Pas. I have heard that this is not an easy pass to do and with my mule packed I shot past the turnoff.

When I hit the tar road to Elliot I see this nice white Hotel in front of me. So I decided to go and treat myself to a cold beer.

I entered the Mountain Shadows Hotel and was amazed by the place.  It looks so homely and attractive with those deep plush red carpets and all the REAL wooden furniture.

So I have one beer, then another and after the third beer I asked what the rates were...... R 535.00 weekend rate dinner bed and breakfast...... WOW compared to the crappy place in Matat that wanted to rush me R 450.00 just for a room this was a bargain.

Decided to just unwind there for the night because I am sure I would not get a better deal in Elliot.

That night I had a nice dinner with soup,  2 meats and all the veggies my wife likes to make me eat and even a desert..

Talking to the owner he suggested I do Bastervoetslaan the next morning.... Why not.

Next morning I go for breakfast, leave all the luggage behind and shot off to do this famous pass.

Cruising along the farm roads I enjoy the early morning ride.  Only problem is the sun directly into my eyes.

I come around a bend over a low water bridge with the sun DIRECTLY into my eyes and suddenly this nice farm road becomes a rutted bolder mountain pass.  I open up and the willing Honda jumps and jumps across this 'ROAD'.  It carries on for a while and suddenly I am on the top.

I stop at the top next to the sign that says LAPA Munnik Pass..... happy that I survived this famous pass by myself and in record time.

Pull out the cell phone and phone Jupiter to tell him I did it... just to get pissed on my battery when he told me that the Bastervoetslaan pass is actually further along this rode and that you should enter from Ugie side to do the REAL pass.

Well old age taught me not to do stupid things and alone by myself I decided it was not safe to attempt the rest of the pass down the other side.  So I turned back and headed for the Hotel to pick up my stuff.

Packed the mule and off I went.  Still had to get via Kei Mouth to BarryC in Morgans Bay and I know the Transkei roads are not the best.  Did hit some tar sections, but man the section from Kentani to Kei is absolutely the worst road I have ever seen.

Just before Elliot I went down the Barkley Pass and saw the  nice rock formations.  The one is called the Turtle or is it the Camel.

At the Kei River I waited for the ferry to arrive.  R30.00 later and a small donation for 'BREAD' I was on the other side.

Rode to Morgans Bay to meet up with BarryC and his lovely wife.  Wow what a place to live in.

Went for a stroll on the beach with the dogs, then up to the hotel for a beer and a coffee and later to the cliffs for a sundowner.

That evening we had a nice BBQ.... fok man Braai... :imaposer: and went to bed early as usual... :imaposer:

Next morning it was off to East London.

When I started a thread on my 1958 BSA Bantam restoration some Wild Dog told me about a retired chap in East London doing a 1952 D-1 model.  We became friends swapping parts and info.  I christened his bike as SHREK because of the green color it came in back in 1952.
They insisted I spend a night with them.

But first I popped into our EL office to say hello to my colleges.   Old Wicus was not happy that he had to work and I was having the time of my life out on the open road.

Poor Neil, he drove me around town getting oil to service the Honda.  Back to Honda to see if they have the speedo gear available.
Available in JHB, but they do not do overnight spares anymore.  Please get it to PE then... sorry sir that is also seen as overnight.
So Plan B was to install a bicycle speedo so that I could keep track of the distance covered and know when to fill up with petrol.... and to make sure I do not exceed the speed limit..  :ricky:

Messed oil all over his garage floor and just checking all the things are still on the bike after some rough roads.

Another early night for OLD people.   :peepwall:

Post by: woody1 on May 15, 2015, 02:48:54 pm
I was alway told that people get coffee in Fort Beaufort, so I left East London and got to Fort Beaufort ...NOT TO GET COFFEE..... :deal:
From there I shot back down to Grahamstown, but just outside Fort Beaufort the Honda died on me... no indication nothing... just DEAD.

Coasted to a halt and wondered what now.  It was a bit sluggish this morning with the starter not spinning the motor as usual.  In Fort Beaufort I had to kickstart her.

Yesterday with the service in East London I took the battery out and topped up the water, but I did not clean the terminals.  So I decided to give it a nice clean on the side of the road.  Put it back together.... no electric start.  But on the first kick she roared into life.

Off to Grahamstown and popped into the Wimpy for my annual Waffel and Ice Cream. :peepwall:

Then as I left Grahamstown she backfired and she is DEAD again.

Checked that I have fuel... undid the spark plug lead and pushed it back on.... first kick she is alive again.... and that was the last of the problems I had.  Now the battery was kaput and I had to kickstart her all the time, but even on a cold morning nothing more that 2 kicks to woke her up.

Got to Jupiter place where he was busy fitting his new stater motor brushes to the BIG Blue machine.

Original plan was to go via Steytlerville and camp down at Hadleys pont before doing the Grootrivierpoort pass and then onto the Baviaans.
Jupiter decided we go for a DAY RUN and come back to PE to sleep.

So off we went with just some tools and puncture repair stuff.

Somewhere on the road to Steytlerville I noticed that my right hand side cover was missing.  Jupiter wanted us to go back and look for it, but with all the traffic that passed us and the fact that it was some kilometers before the last stop I was sure that it will be a waste of time and that we would run into time problems getting over the Grootrivierpoort pass and back to PE.

Coffee time at the Steytlerville Hotel and then back to the Grootrivierpass road.

The section down to Hadleys was a brezze as some contractors were finishing off the new water pipe installation  and some roadworks made this section easy to ride.

Took some pictures down at Hadleys and then through the water onto the REAL part.
I must say that that first 3km climb was relatively easy, but some sections further along made me break a sweat every now and then.

Got to the radio towers in one piece and with no mishaps.

Thanks Jupiter for being an excellent guide on this one.

We stopped at Patensie for coffee and chocolate cake for myself and rode back to PE via the old road.

Jupiter always stop at the bottom of Van Staadens bridge to end his trip with another PUFF..  :imaposer:

Next morning up early.... Today is EC-Bash time.

Off back to Patensie.  The usual breakfast at the usual place.  Then top up with petrol and into the Baviaans.

Real men enter Baviaans via Patensie.  Moffies en dogtertjies from Willomore side  :pot: :pot: :pot: :pot: :pot: :pot: :pot: :peepwall:
Hooligans across the mountains  :imaposer:

But the road is BAD... Again the little Honda is happy to take all the punishment I can throw at her.

Through Smitskraal and then we had to stop to have some coffee.  My mug is packed into my big bag, so I take a plastic bottle and make myself a glass to enjoy some of Jupiters finest.

We got to Doorkraal first and just as we stopped 2 BMW riders came to a screeching halt next to me.  I got such I fright the Honda toppled over to the right hand side and there she is on her side.

It was Jmol and BarryC.  Old Barry helped me pick up the bike and get it on the side stand.  He was worried that the tank have a big dent in it.  Only the front brake lever had a nice bend in it.

Saturday I had to do some washing, but just sitting around and listen to all the stories was great.

Then we sat... and sat and talked and talked.  And eat and eat... and went to bed early.
Old friends, new friends and sommer cool okes.

What a JOL.

I loved the joke that Twe-Twes husband Andries told:

Die jong troep kom by die basis aan vir diensplig.  Elke keer as iemand na hom kyk dan skree hy.... WAARSHY... WAARSHY....
Na die hele dag se rondlopery op die basis met 'n WAARSHY... WAARSHY ... is die korporall toe  oortuig daar is iets verkeerd met die mannetjie.

So hy vat hom na die doktor toe.  Daar is dit weer... WAARSHY... WAARSHY.
Die doktor neem sy boekie.  Skry daar in dat die man medies ongeskik is vir militere diensplig. Stmple hom en handig die papier aan die troep.

Die troep bestudeer die briefie aandagtig.  Lees hom nog 'n keer deur en skreeuw........ DAARSHY... DAARSHY.

We had a great time at the Bash.  Thanks Jupiter  :thumleft:

After a fantastic weekend in the kloof, Sunday morning arrived with HEAVY mist in the area.
We pack up the wet tents and get going.

Today Jupiter will take me across the mountain to Kareedouw on the 4x4 route.

We say our goodbyes, saddle up the heavily loaded donkeys and away we went.

It is wet, misty and not easy going.  After a while Gerard stopped.  Do you want to carry on in these conditions or do we turn back and take the easy way out.

Never, I came this far to do these rides and NOU GAAN ONS RY...  :ricky: :ricky:

We made it to Kareedouw, but with a slip and a slide here and there... luckily no fall.

After a quick toasted sarmie and some coffee we get on the road through the Lankloof.  I think this is the first time in my life I am riding this section of tar.

Some people just cannot KEEP GOING and at the Klip Hotel we had to stop for some coffee again  :imaposer:

About 70 km before George I went over to reserve.  The riding in the mountains must have making the bike a bit thirstier than normal.
Jupiter carrying 28 liters to my 23 liters did not have a problem.

Luckily we found a garage on the road and I could fill her up again.  A quick chain lube for both bikes and off to George.

In George Jupiter filled up and when I wanted to say my goodbyes he insisted that we finish our ride together with another coffee.
Coffee ended up with a waffle for me and some brownies for him at the Dros.

Our paths split up and he went to his daughters place and I went off to Kosies place.

Kosie and Jakkals are friends. I wanted to spend some quality time with Kosie and his wife, but this was interrupted with a visit by the JACKAL and my daughter.

We had a good time and Kosie had a pork belly on the coals.
Thanks Kosie and thanks to your wife for the lovely food.

Two year ago when we attended the EC-Bash, my wife flew to PE.  We did the EC-Bash and left the Sunday doing the Avontuur and Kom se pad routes.  We planned to do the 7 passes, but time run out and we had to drop her at the George airport for her flight back home.

So this time I said I will doe the 7 passes.

At the Bash RAT introduced me to his friend Greg that works at the Knysna Bike shop.  He might have a speedo drive for me. So I rode the 7 passes road to Knysna.... another bucket list ticked.... now I will have to go back an show the family this road in the near future.  :ricky:

In Knysna Greg did not have the right part, but we changed and indicator bulb for free,   :thumleft:  Thanks guys.

I had some breakfast and off onto the Avontuur road.

Sections are BAD and not a pleasure to ride, but the scenery makes up for it.

I passed Uniondale and in Willomore filled up.  Phoned Jakkals and he let the hotel in Klipplaat know that the mayor of Brakpan will be arriving and a room must be reserved.

Certain sections were gravel Highway, with a paths here and there a bit rough.

When I got to the Charles Hotel in Klipplaat Johan came out and greeted me like royalty.

Had a couple of dops and for supper he served me tjops and chips.

Something that was obvious at this place is that Jakkals frequents this place and for service rendered he give the lady a cheap T-Shirt.  :pot: :peepwall:

I had to take a picture of the BAR dog taking a nap.  Looks like he passed out in his little bed.  :imaposer:

The next morning I had a BIG breakfast... 3 eggs and all.

The porridge plate still has the Klipplaat Logo on it... show how posh the old establishments were back in the days.

Novel idea was the vinyl records used as table mats.

The whole place have these big blokkies floors.  I hope that if this place keeps on going for years and years, but if not please phone me to come and collect all of these floors before somebody uses it for firewood.

Next morning again a lot of mist making it difficult to ride on the dirt roads.  I like to see where I am going and want to look ahead to plan my line of riding.

Before Kendrew it cleared and I got into the ride again and enjoying the scenery.  Even stopped to take some pictures of the old abandoned homes that my wife wanted me to take pictures off so that she could paint them.

In Kendrew I filled up with petrol again.  At the service station they have some old Garage equipment like the oil can press and the tyre changing equipment.

From Kendrew I headed towards Pearston and then across the Swaerhoek Pass and later the Maraiskloof Pass.  The first was nice and smooth, but the second one I would not recommend if it was raining.  One section one could see that some bakkies really struggled up there.  Deep red clay and lots of ruts are evident of this.

Getting to Cradock and still under Jupiters influence of stopping every hour or so for coffee. I got to the Wimpy for my fix.

I still had to get to Jan-Harms place near Venterstad, so no more dirt riding for the day and I klapped it..... at 4500 rpm... towards Hofmeyer and Steynsburg.

At Venterstad I filled up again and then rode out to the farm 15 km out of town.

As I approached the farm I saw some activity at the kraal and rode up to a very friendly chap that greeted me like a long lost brother.

He was busy loading sheep but quickly took me down to the house to settle in.

I had a nice shower while he finished off his activities on the farm.

Only later I found out that this man is a former Springbok rugby player.

That evening his neighbor joined us for the braai.....and what a braai it was. Some VERY THICK T-bones as starters and lots of the best chops in the world..... I even had some krummelpap.

Turns out Jan-Harm is a knife collector, and on his farm he has a lot of OLIEN wood and he makes the most amazing knife boxes from this beautiful wood.  A real artist and that is why we got on so well.... the love of wood brought us together.

Thank you Jan-Harm and family for a WONDERFUL evening.... and all the Kudu biltong that you gave us.

During the evening I had a look at my maps and saw that there are not many attractions left to go and explore, so the decision was made to hit the road all the way back to Brakpan in one go.... all 690 km of it.  Mammie wag nou al lankal alleen by die huis.  :imaposer:

I rode over the longest bridge near Bethulie, then on to Smithfield and Reddersburg to Bloemfontein.
From Bloemfontein I got onto the N1.  Was a bit worried that at 4500 rpm I would encounter big trucks bearing down on me.

So I did the 5000 rpm trip and passed ALL trucks and 4 cars with ease.

At 15h30 I stopped at the house after a WONDERFUL 4015 km trip with an awesome bike.

Thanks to my wife that let the dog loose to go and explore and thanks to the Lord that kept me safe on all the roads.

Thank's for all the generous dogs that offered accommodation, info, help and tour leading during this amazing trip.

Kort storie die ANDER MAN kry nou nie die moulds nie....se hy.
En die ou wat het is op die oomblik in Amerika.
Sodra hy terug is sal ek maar weer by hom smeek.

Die ou wat ek weet wat het, het dit eendag vir n ANDER MAN geleen om moulds te maak.
Die ANDER MAN het die covers redelik verniel met die maak van die moulds.
