Title: 3000km(now 2000) To the 2015 Nat Bash via the Eastern Cape
Post by: SchalkL on September 19, 2015, 03:04:59 pm
Ok, lets see if i can do a small RR on this flippen Ipad while on my way to the Bash.
The plan is to follow this route sort of. Grondpad alliepad behalwe as ek gatvol raak
Start and end will be River Destiny since I cheated again and stoetie'd up to there
(I need my rooftop at the bash sodat Draad nie in my tent kan inkom nie )  >:(

EDIT:
After meeting HtB (see below) i did some tar twisties with him and our way departed at Middelburg from where I decided to aim straight for Addo and skip the Transkei bit

Gues who showed up at the Engen at Bloem ? Ons eie Jan Spies van motorcycle ride reports, the one and only Harry the Buffalo. Ek sien hom dalk vannaand so sal update more oor wat die legend deesdae doen.

Die omgewing is baie droog en vaal maar RDest is pragtig. Hulle het baie water uit die rivier en gebruik dit mildelik. (Wish I could plant a few pecannut trees here....)

A quick turnoff next to the railwaybridge over the river got me to a bit of a dead end. Nie eers n 690 gaan hier oorkom nie. Vorentoe, agtertoe, hyg stoot en vloek oor ek so dik is en whalla, daar gat ek weer. Now for that zamalek.

Me, Dave, Jakkals&Bolf en Klippies had some pork chops the size of Saartjie Baardmans ass and discussed the meaning of life and showed each other pictures of our Rotweilers. Ok ons ry more saam Middelburg toe dan sal ek n kiekkie gooi.

If you push your luck, shit will happen. Exactly what happened to me today.

Ek het kak gesoek en dit gekry Dont't ever think T4A only have nice tracks on them. 20km from Jansenville on a gravel road I took a detour and 6 hours later, completely buggered, running on fumes soaking wet and just before dark I arrived in, you guesed it, Jansenville.
A bit of a taister on where I was but first I must do the report in sequence.

Lekker Schalk, ek ry lekker saam.  :thumleft:

Ok, after breakfast myself and Harry the Buffalo (Dave) hit the tar to Middelburg and following him I can say with confidence that my 990 gives 15km/l @ 160, not bad I think. I will definitely visit Dave in Phalaborwa. Soos ons plattelanders se, hy is van my kerk se mense maar ook n ou wat ek langs my soek in n bar fight.

From Middelburg I got lost in their township maar met die raad van n doosdronk swart dame het ek by die surrich (hoe spel mens skuit in ingels?) uitgekom wat so paadjie tot by die grootpad gehad het. After some gravel/tar I got to the Owlhouse turnoff. Nou kyk swambo wou nog altyd hier inneuk en ek het gese sorry, get your priorities straight,  ek gaan koop nie sement uiltjies vir die prys van n nuwe bashplate nie!
Maar pappie, is dit nou n lekker pad, do yourself a favour and take this road to New Bethesda and from there the tar road toward Graaf Renet, twisties heaven!

Road to New Betesda

Church in NB, I think swambo and our Ds phoned them or something because as I got of the bike, all hell broke loose. Die koster het daai klokke begin slaan met die mag van Goliat, ek het my gat af geskrik die hele dorp se honde het begin tjank en die ou tannies het op die stoep vir my gaan staan en kyk.

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-v5hFZTDDlHM/Vf6GRm_GLdI/AAAAAAAALA8/8pa4UWj-YOM/s2048-no/IMG_0403.JPG)

I was immediately surrounded by the local bike police  >:D but only to make sure that I stop at Ida's place for coffee.

Maar dis 'n storie vir 'n ander tyd en plek.

Het jy en daai Vespa bietjie "street drags" innie hoofstraat gehad?

From here I took the tar road towards Graaf Reinet, what a lekke road, lots of twisties up and down. Lekke sover! Ek land nou op in Pearston na GR en vat van daar die grondpad na Jansenville.

Nice plat pad
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VGUL2wIliCg/Vf7d878mGaI/AAAAAAAALCY/T6VXYWZMePg/s2048-no/IMG_0413.JPG)

Weer begin lekker opsteek agter my!
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-UC_TXUQSzWU/Vf7d-NIkS7I/AAAAAAAALCg/OYxdfWr42Hg/s2048-no/IMG_0414.JPG)

En net HIER begin my nagmerrie. Little did I know what lies ahead. In my tipiese windgat houding besluit ek dat enige T4A roete geskik is vir n KTM. I was just to tired ride,walk or breath for that matter so only took a few pics but here they are:

All looking good for now en moerse impressed met myself om deur 10cm water te ry

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Zfy_6w_2gqQ/Vf7eFHqaroI/AAAAAAAALDA/xziLOiOHgbA/s2048-no/IMG_0418.JPG)

Soon the road turned to a 2spoor en toe raak dit rof

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_vH-3BkB0XA/Vf7eILiO-VI/AAAAAAAALDQ/9u61fW7JVZ0/s2048-no/IMG_0420.JPG)

Cant really see it in the pics but I was climbing 1st gear hills, going through at least 20 gates that I had to open and close. Moerse proses: Stop, soek plek vir die sidestand, sukkel om af te klim met my kortgat bene, maak oop hek, stoot die bike deur en reverse die hele proses weer * 20  :P
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-EJmYaJ4MhCo/Vf7eKE8VhTI/AAAAAAAALDY/x_uR7QbWEO0/s2048-no/IMG_0421.JPG)

I then started getting dry riverbeds one after the other

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0mXwp1gSyIw/Vf7eNqMabcI/AAAAAAAALDo/N_Ax-CVJbxw/s2048-no/IMG_0423.JPG)

I was now low on fuel, about halfway through the road to hell totally alone, no cellphone signal for 2 hours and shitscared of snakes. I realised that had to make it out before dark without breaking any bones and then made a very silly decission. Op die gps lyk dit of ek so 10km kan uitsny as ek in die rivierbedding probeer afry. Nou ja, after about 30min 1st gear spinning full time Amageza riding with fully loaded 990 I got to this.

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-yu-ABmDjOQE/Vf7eRfizuqI/AAAAAAAALD4/o4tLR9Mbynw/s2048-no/IMG_0425.JPG)

Ek moes omdraai, weer my 120kg lyfie riding god hou en vasbyt om bo te bly. Terug waar ek n uur gelede was. Nou het amper fkl petrol, niks water oor nie en ek begin dink daaraan om my testament in die sand te skryf
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xZkPgINky4o/Vf7eTIpXCKI/AAAAAAAALEA/W1v_OsFOKlQ/s2048-no/IMG_0426.JPG)

There is now NO track left to speak of, erosie humps elke 100m wat so hoog soos die bike is en dit klink dalk nice maar na 477 humps raak jy gatvol en MOEG. I pretty sure that no vehicle came through here since Chaka Zulu. Van die erosie slote is n meter wyd en ek moet deur die boose neuk om terug op die track te kom that only excist in the gps.

(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-iCmg9VhJjSA/Vf7eXv2I_VI/AAAAAAAALEY/dLH1FdAZiGo/s2048-no/IMG_0429.JPG)

So na 4 ure wat my laat dink aan hoe maklik my diensplig se pt sessies eintlik was kom ek by die hek uit? I could not help myself and started laughing (it was that or crying) IT Was Locked!!
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kgdmqNHZGqs/Vf7eZiuCdcI/AAAAAAAALEg/-cuhVB5D6YQ/s2048-no/IMG_0430.JPG)

I saw a farmhouse in the distance and started walking. Only about 2km but it felt like 20. They phoned somebody to unlock the gate and lady casually asked me if I went through any gates with electric fencing on top. The answer was Yes, 4 of them?  It was a frikken lion camp All she said was that somebody must have removed the signs and locks on the other side.....WTF? :o

Anyway, I was now on my way again on a beautifull gravel road and after going through 2 game reserve electronic gates to get out I ended up 30km from Jansenville on tar.

And then it happened, Petrol is klaar pappie. Gelukkig onthou ek van my secret weapon, 4.5L of clean healthy Desert Fox fuel.
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YuDF8rnVh0U/Vf7efkWEx3I/AAAAAAAALFA/_sPh5LTrKp0/s2048-no/IMG_0434.JPG)

It started raining but I was happy! I AM ALIVE.  Got to Jansenville, Zamalek, Rumpsteak, Bed.
Next morning got up late with every bone in my 52year old body acking but 10m on the bike fixed that.
Decided to go visit Die Drol in Addo otherwise I will never hear the end of it.
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZcpMJ4XQNvQ/VgGmzb3xBvI/AAAAAAAALFg/2ZZKa_S4JR8/s2048-no/IMG_0439.JPG)

Die plan is om 24e saam met Jupiter hulle oor die Grootkak pas te ry bokant Baviaans en John het my so bang gepraat dat ek reguit PE to is om vir my 'n nuwe voor tyre op te sit.

Ek rus nou 2 dae in Jeffreys, so teen die tyd wat julle my volgende update kry was ons al almal by die Bash en terug. Mooi ry manne, hou die blink kant bo

"Die plan is om 24e saam met Jupiter hulle oor die Grootkak pas te ry bokant Baviaans en John het my so bang gepraat dat ek reguit PE to is om vir my 'n nuwe voor tyre op te sit."

Laat ek dit so stel... as ek erens heen oppad was met 'n gelaaide KTM, dan het ek ompad gesoek eerder as om GRP te ry  :imaposer:

Oo! Jaaaa! Net by the way!!! Jy was nogal reg daar in Middelburg toe jy ges het dit wil vir jou voorkom of die Buffeltjie gaan deur steek Port Alfred toe😄. Die pad was lekker...die weer was lekker en die geduldige....gewillige gebrom van daai boxer tussen my bene het my laat verlang na ver plkke😆 Net ander kant Queenstown het die sweepers en twisties rrig begin en my laat dink aan my wreld daar by Graskop👍.

Ok die les vir vandag word genoem Grootrivier pas Awesome Gerhard, dankie vir die saamry, sou dit seker nie gewaag het sonder jou nie!

Ontmoet Jupiter by Tolbos vir n bietjie koffie en motivation

Begin van Grootrivierpas, tot hier was net warmmaak en stretch

Ek kon nie eintlik kiekies neem van die rowwe stukke nie, to busy looking for 1st gear and shouting in my helmet. Naah, just joking, wasn't to bad, if you can do Breedtsnek, you can do this, just 40km long.
Hier is so 2 kiekies waar ek n plat plekkie kon kry om te stop.

Road to Aberdeen is a gravel higway en meer fun as 'n Sondagmiddag knippie.
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qrd0RI1StkE/VgPwlOQqVkI/AAAAAAAALKY/1mxHPj-stWc/w1568-h1176-no/IMG_0478.JPG)

KTM doen bietjie modelwerk oppad Aberdeen toe.

Na Aberdeen slaan ek die pad Murraysburg toe, hierdie paaie is amper soos in Namibie, jy wil net nie ophou ry nie.
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-sC_qmBfYQIs/VgQe1yCC20I/AAAAAAAALNM/nGk-zMCY6eQ/w1568-h1176-no/IMG_0508.JPG)

MAAR, hier is 'n baie goeie rede om nie in die nag te ry nie en jou spoed binne perke te hou!!!!!!

Wens hierdie was my plaas

By die pompstasie ontmoet ek die ou toppie en hy kom my dadelik vertel dat sy karretjie dieselfde kleur is as my scooter. Ek moet ook hoor hy het hom in 1974 gekoop en nog net 'n alternator vervang. Faark, even the locals know about KTM maintenance...

Its 17:00 and I should look for a place to sleep but sometimes I just want to ride, been on the road 10hours so far today but it feels like 2. I decided to push for Richmond, only 78km, and take my chances.
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-TLzC2N2jfqA/VgQe7nXFDXI/AAAAAAAALN4/_X--YlLr-y4/w1568-h1176-no/IMG_0515.JPG)

These roads are so awesome and I its easy ride 140 but it takes just one sheep (Ask Orangeswifty) om 'n moerse stok in jou speke te steek. Riding solo I try to keep it around 100km/h but man its difficult.

Ends up I made the right decision, stopped at this place in Richmond and the owner, about the size of 15 Japanese players standing on top of the Springbok team, came out and told that his name is Saag, and I will stay in his guesthouse and eat in his restaurant. I did not take any chances en het net ja meneer gese.
