Title: EC Bash 10 - 14 May 2018: Purple Hooligan Rides Again!
Post by: Ri on May 22, 2018, 07:34:57 pm
Prologue:

In 2016 I attended the EC Bash in an SUV, and have since wanted to attend it on my motorbike. Last year I was booked and paid up, but had to cancel on the day I would've left due to ill health in the family.  So when the bookings for EC Bash 2018 opened up, I was one of the first to book and pay. Nothing would stop me this year! I posted notices far and wide to family members to please reserve ill health and death for different dates, and started checking out routes.

Tony the Boney invited me to ride along with him and Odd Dog, and enticed me with tales of the Kamanassie river roads. This suited me, because it satisfied my wanderlust and desire to ride solo (I still had to reach Mossel Bay by myself) but I'd have good company from there. I contacted a few friends and asked for route suggestions to Mossel Bay, with a strong emphasis on gravel. hje phoned with some decent suggestions, and my plans were set.

Then things changed. I was persuaded to join Hardy de Kock's tour to Damaraland and Kaokoland, and things quickly and suddenly fell in place to make this possible. Now the EC Bash trip wasn't just a bucket list item to tick, it was also a test to see how I'd fare in more technical terrain, in terms of coping as well as in terms of endurance. My adrenaline spiked and I was dry-mouthed for the entire 2 weeks leading up to and including the Bash.

The Bash would also be a test for the Purple Hooligan, newly minted, super-tanked and valved as a thank you for being my long-suffering little workhorse in learning to ride. He would be showing off his new colours and sweet, sweet suspension tweaks  :ricky:

Thursday 10 May 2018 - Day 1

Thursday morning rolled around. As per usual I stayed up too late, and battle a bit to get up and be away by the time I'd planned. Thankfully I was so excited about the trip, that the Hooligan had been hampered with pannier bags earlier in the week, and stood saddled and ready under his cover. I eagerly open the choke and start the motor to warm him up. To my dismay, a thick black cloud of smoke streams from his exhaust, and keeps it up for some time.

In a panic I phone the Hooligan Handler, Dux, to confirm that Hooligan is indeed road ready, and he assures me it was because of the various things done and some condensation, as Hooligan has been standing still for a while. And sure enough, once I'm on the road and the choke is closed, the smoke disappears.

The route for the day is from Stellenbosch over Franschhoek Pass to Villiersdorp, then onwards towards Worcester but taking the Scherpenheuvel turnoff. From there via various twists and turns I would reach Bonniedale Bonnievale, and from there on to Swellendam. From Swellendam I could choose tar or gravel to Vleesbaai, my destination for the day.

The day is bright, crispy and clear and I talk to myself and the Hooligan and to God. Before reaching Franschhoek, I turn right on to Robertsvlei Road, a pleasant detour of the busy town centre. One day I'll go look at the dam wall too, but I'm always just short of time for that extra detour.

Robertsvlei Road

I think these are workers housing for Molenvliet or some such estate.

Newly sparkling Hooligan - sexiest bike of them all. It's going to be a while before he is this clean again...

This beautiful wedding chapel (presumably) stands on an island in a lake, and workers were busy building the wide lane leading up to it.

Franschhoek Pass is always beautiful and a joy to ride, but it is also chilly. I follow some speed bikes up the pass, but don't stop at the look out point as everyone else does. I swing dreamily around the tight turns towards Theewaterskloof Dam, slowed down by some cars ahead of me from doing something stupid. Passing Theewaterskloof Dam, it is encouraging to see more water - apparently it is now 20% full, and this is before the winter rains. With a heart swelling in gratitude, I turn left and head towards Villiersdorp.

Entering Villiersdorp, I see a Padstal and decide to have breakfast. I don't eat much when travelling, but I haven't had coffee yet and only a thin veneer of civility hides my morning grumpiness. I ask for the strongest coffee they can give me, and an not disappointed - this coffee promises murder  >:D

The breakfast is delicious and too much for me to finish. The home baked bread especially is very tasty  :drif:

Having made only the sketchiest notes of hje's detailed route instructions, I turn off at the Scherpenheuvel sign and stop to check my notes for directions. A friendly GS'er stops to check up on me - he's on his way to Montagu for the GS Trophy. Instead of just following him, as I realise afterwards we were probably doing the same route, my independence kicks in and I wave him on.

I check my notes again, hit the start button and pull away. After the low water bridge, as instructed, I turn left towards Scherpenheuvel and the road becomes gravel. I barrel along merrily, passing many youths lolling next to the road who should probably be in school. A few kilometers further, hitting tar again, I habitually start to second guess myself, and turn around to continue on the road I had previously shunned. This road also quickly becomes a lovely sweeping gravel road but then worryingly starts to turn in the wrong direction. However when I see a board indicating that I'm on my way back to Villiersdorp, I stop and interrogate my sketchy notes and sketchier GPS app again, sigh, and turn around again.

Back on the original route again, waving at the indolent youths as I pass - yet again, feeling a little foolish, I find that I had turned around 5km shy of my next turn-off. Ah well, the turn added a beautiful 50kms to my ride for the day, and with a huge tank filled almost to the brim, even a thirsty Hooligan would be content.

The next turn-off was described in some detail, and I'm happy that I'm on the right track.

At Bonniedale Bonnievale Cellars I turn right towards Stormsrivier Stormsvlei, but it turns out that my sketchy note taking had deserted me. Apparently I should've turned left and taken some turns through Bonniedale Bonnievale onto a road that ended up at the back of Swellendam. However, I only manage to reach Stormsrivier Stormsvlei near the N2.

Time is no longer on my side, as I am further away from Vleesbaai than I expected to be. I let my family know that I'll arrive about an hour later, turn onto the N2 and open the Hooligan's throat to roar down the highway like a purple... well... hooligan, passing all obstacles and slow moving trucks in my way and praying that the speed cops are snoozing.

At Riversonderend Buffeljagsfontein I turn off at the garage to fill up the thirsty Hooligan, as I can SEE the fuel level dropping in my high speed chase against time. There are quite a few Beemers about, presumably on their way to Montagu, and I park a little to the side and out of the way and head for the ablutions. When I walk back to the Hooligan, a GS is parked right behind it and I think to myself, "Bet he recognised the Hooligan from WD".

I walk up to my bike and start to kit up, when a GS pulls up next to me and the friendly rider enquires about my plans. He buzzes off with a few other GSs, but the GS behind me is still patiently kitting up. When the others are gone, he walks up and asks whether I'm on WD. I say yes and start to laugh, and ask him whether he recognised the bike from the forum. He laughs too and admits that yes, he's seen the bike, my avatar, on some threads. He's from Gauteng and on his way to Montagu, but he's relaxed and rides at his own pace, even though he is there with a group. They had been taking a slow ride down the coast, and would be riding back over a few days as well. It sounded fun. We greeted each other, and then we were each on our way again, me with a smile inside my helmet. I love being part of the Wilddog community!

Then the race against dusk is on again, and finally I pass Albertinia. I stop by the side of the road between the turn-off to Gouritzmond and Vleesbaai to confirm with the family that I'll be arriving soon, and the address I need to be at. I also check the Sygic app, because I have a feeling that instead of turning at the Vleesbaai turnoff, I can also take the more (hopefully) scenic road to Gouritzmond and hopefully score a bit of gravel.

Sygic gives my suggestion the thumbs-up, and I throw a semi-confident U-turn and take the Gouritzmond turn-off. It's a lovely long downhill, but I'm chased by a few huge and hasty SUVs. I make some space for them to pass me, and turn off in the direction of Vleesbaai. It turns out to be mostly tar road, but at least it isn't highway and it is beautiful. Then suddenly Sygic directs me to turn right onto a little gravel road, and my heartbeat accelerates. An unexpected little gravel backroad to Vleesbaai, perhaps? I eagerly turn off and follow Sygic's directions for a few hundred meters, only to confronted with an open gate with a big sign saying no vehicles are allowed, as this is an ostrich breeding area.

I sigh a little disappointedly, and paddle the Hooligan around. On the way back I run into a flock of sheep, and pull aside for them to pass.

Then I head down the tar road again and soon arrive in Vleesbaai, where I disturb the unnaturally quiet and serene mini-neighbourhoods with Hooligan's loud Bossun pipe, fed by his thirsty carb, as I trundle up and down unexpected dead-ends, having completely forgotten my directions again. By a stroke of inspiration I manage to find the right road, and soon pull in at the family for some great food and wine and excellent conversation deep into the night, catching up the missing years. Then it's off to bed for an early start, grateful for all the blessings heaped upon me  ;D

Friday 11 May 2018 - Day 2

It is still dark when I get up, have a quick shower, get dressed and shove back in again the few things I took out of the pannier. The cousin makes me a tasty cup of coffee and then we head off on our various ways, into the tardy dawn.

I turn in at the Mossel Bay Engen 1-Stop to find Tony (the Boney) and Brian (Odd Dog) waiting for me. We head off to George immediately.

The plan is to have breakfast at the Wimpy in George, a tradition for these Dogs, and I ask whether we're riding gravel or tar, hoping for gravel, but Tony decides on tar. However, when we reach Klein Brak he has second thoughts and to my joy we turn off onto gravel roads until we reach George behind the airport. Here Brian takes the lead and we follow him down a delightful little gravel road that meanders around the outskirts of George until it spits us out up the road from the Wimpy where we'll have breakfast. I'm grinning ear to ear with glee - what an excellent start to the journey!

A young 800GS rider arrives and hangs around the Wimpy while we prepare to leave, regarding us with great interest but keeping his distance. I almost make a fool of myself as I battle to paddle back the heavy Hooligan from his parking spot, but through sheer bullheadedness I manage a bit of a push, and turn him to squeeze his nose past the bumper of the car next to us with millimeters to spare, giving the watching Brian a few anxious moments. I roar off, triumphant in my tiny victory.

The route for the day is up Montagu Pass, then on to the Paardepoort Road, then following the Kamanassie River, then through Uniondale and turning into Baviaanskloof from the Willowmore side.

Montagu Pass is really beautiful and there is always traffic on it. With the twists and turns, I find myself looking back at Tony and on impulse stop to take a photo of his ascent into the corner, but my stop is too hurried and the camber sides with gravity, and next moment Hooligan gracelessly slides to the ground. Tony rounds the corner, stops and jumps of his bike, concerned that I'd fallen, but I assure him this was only a side stand incident.

We stop at the bridge for photo's, and realising that I had completely overdressed, I duck behind a pillar to take off my tights - a delicate operation next to the slippery stream, resting my warm rump against the cold cement - while Tony obligingly turns his back.

Kyk hoe kyk sy vir my! With all the weight, Hooligan is so low I sometimes battle to put the shortened side stand down, and I have the novel experience of sitting on my bike flatfooted with knees slightly bent!

We carry on the scenic ride, Brian and Tony in turns patiently shepherding me along even though the day is quickly heating up, as I carry on in fits and starts, taking pictures at almost every corner.

Tony really likes the look of the Hooligan, and after hearing of all the improvements, is keen to take him for a spin, so we swap bikes for a few kilometers. I'm a little hesitant to ride other people's bikes, because they're usually a little tall for me, but Tony's Husky TR650 is a well-behaved little beast and I have a blast.

Then it's onto the Paardepoort Road and we're on our own steeds again. Tony is very impressed with the Hooligan's stability and road holding. I'm sure the weight helps, but those front valves has also clearly made a difference, as the nose doesn't dive anymore when braking hard. Man I love this bike!!

Trying to make this thread go to the second page so it's not just a long wall of pictures, but don't know how many posts a page takes. Sigh.

20 posts per page. Don't worry about number of pictures here - they are way less than I sometimes end up posting in my reports on one page and they seem to work fine so far, so you should be OK here.

Thanks, yes, looks like next page starts on the 20th post. Would be nice if it were only 10 or 15, or if we could add something like a page break. I'm not a fan of scrolling, but these single dot posts don't work for me. Ah well.

RR to be continued after some ZZZs...

Dankie vir report en mooi fotos, ek wou daai Kamanasie pad al paar keer gaan ry het, maar nooit genoeg tyd gehad.
Kan jy dalk se wat jy alles aan jou DR laat doen het, Madelaine se DR kort ook so bietjie aandag, staan al op 150 000km.

Dis 'n lekker pad daai, pragtige uitsigte!

Eintlik maar net bietjie TLC vir die Hooligan gegee en hom bietjie mooi gemaak. Die enjin is nog dieselfde as toe jy hom gesien het by WC Bash laas jaar, staan nou op 70 000km. Nog nie probleme gegee nie. Meeste goedjies is kosmeties - raam is gepowdercoat want dit was erg gekrap en ek was bang vir roes, ceramic coat op die exhaust header. Ek het wel emulator valves gekry vir voorvurke, en is baie in my skik met die verskil wat dit maak. Agterskok se preload is bietjie verstel sodat die "sag" eweredig is voor en agter.

Wil nog graag die enjin casings laat mooi maak, want dit steek nou af teen die res van die motorfiets, haha. Sal sien, moet eers weer spaar.

Ek wil ook 'n nuwe universal fairing bestel, lyk soos die fairing op die 1994 DR650 wat deur SuperDavexlv750R geadverteer word, maar daardie gaan nog rukkie vat om te kom klink dit my.

Time is no longer on my side, as I am further away from Vleesbaai than I expected to be. I let my family know that I'll arrive about an hour later, turn onto the N2 and open the Hooligan's throat to roar down the highway like a purple... well... hooligan, passing all obstacles and slow moving trucks in my way and praying that the speed cops are snoozing.

At Riversonderend I turn off at the garage to fill up the thirsty Hooligan,

Nou is ek verdwaal?!! Het jy regtig Riviersonderend toe gery vanaf Stormsvlei om petrol in the gooi of het jy verkeerd getik en het eintlik by Buffeljagsrivier petrol ingegooi?

With all the name changes in the RR I feel like our new government... Seems that, like Trump, I need a fact checker before I publish my RRs ::)

Yes yes I know I can Google it but why ruin a good narrative with facts? It's time-consuming and boring  :sip: :lol8:

At Uniondale we turn into the garage to fill up our thirsty steeds, and run into an old friend - Reneé aka the one and only Dusty. She is accompanied by some new non-Dog friends: Sonja on a stripped-down bare-bones XT250, at only 5 months new to adventure riding but already owning it, and Frikkie on an XR650L. His eyes stretch when he spots the Hooligan's large tank, but he's not a talkative guy and gives us a wide berth.

After a quick hug and chat and hallo's all around, they are on their way again. We fill up and I hit the ablutions and the liquor store - for bottled water.

While we stop and take photo's of this momentous occasion, many bikes whizz past on the tar towards the next entrance into Baviaans, which apparently joins the road we are on. Why would you choose to race on tar when you could swing on gravel?

Soon we run into the famous and the infamous. A sight not seen in quite some time - Boere on a motorbike!

At the next intersection, we run into some more infamous bikers - Ball and Chain and Oom Pad, tarring their lungs. We shoot the breeze for a bit, and then head off on the final leg of our day's trip to Doornkloof Camp.

On our way, we pass Reneé, Sonja and Frikkie stationary next to the road, but they have amassed quite a following by that time so I just wave and continue on my way. I'm in front when we reach Doornkloof's entrance and come to a sliding stop, and a BMW rider stops at the same time from the opposite direction, followed shortly by another BMW rider. I'm waiting for Tony and Brian to catch up, and gesture for them to continue, but they insist on waving me in. Tony arrives, assesses the situation quickly and heads down the entrance slowly.

I follow quickly so as not to hold up the Beemers, but find myself 2nd gear and standing, unable to gear down, bearing down on Tony's slow rear tire with alacrity. I choose the rougher of the 2-spoor so as not to rear-end him, and quickly bump and grind over the riverbed and sandy stretches with tight turns, praying for balance and salvation.

Why people fear Smitskraal so much I'll never know - the entrance to Doornkraal, especially when it is under water like in 2016, is purgatory! I pop out the other side of the tree-lined driveway as if I popped out of a supertube, elated, and head over the wide grassy park to find my camping spot.

Tony and Brian had sensibly booked chalets, but I was going to milk this experience to the last freezing drop and had opted to tent. I ride to where I camped last time, and find Andy660 nearby. He summarily commands me and takes over setting up of my camp site, calling in nearest and dearest (thanks Grant) to unpack and unroll for me while we stand chatting, catching up on our rides. Soon my little tent is standing and I puff a few lungs full of air into my blow up mattress and throw it inside. I unpack a few things from the panniers and also throw them inside.

Reneé and friends also arrive, and set up camp a short space away. They sensibly immediately head for the showers, while I head for the bar, like any self-respecting Dog.

I'm amazed and delighted at how many faces I know, and run around hugging and greeting everyone before getting a beer. After that, from time to time a beer magically appears in my hand - thank you, Andy and others, really appreciate! I'm happy to stand my round(s) but no one would hear of it and I'm humbled at being spoiled so!

Later on I take Sonja for a guided tour around the camp and show her who's who in the Wild Dog zoo.

No, Oom Pad isn't drunk, it's the camera flash I tell you!

I'm surprised to be hailed by Anwar, on the left, as I walked past, because we had only ridden on one or two day rides together, but he is excited to talk about their route, and introduces me to his friends, Keith (Ultraflight) - middle - and Kai (KaiH) - right. I'd met them briefly at the Oasis Spitbraai in April. They want to ride to Smitskraal in the morning, as they plan to exit via Patensie on Sunday. My ears perk up, as I would love to see Smitskraal, and I ask whether I can join. They are happy to have me, surprisingly, as I would be worried about the riding capabilities of anyone I don't know.

The Woody Clan, Pierre, Sweisie and his lovely wife, and Woody1. Having met both Kobus and his wife, neither of whom are shy in conversation, I'm amazed at the quietness of his offspring. The quiet gene must have skipped a generation somewhere and doubled up in this one.

Andre 660, AntonW and Grant. Cocky had ridden backup for Boere, Gavin (Bradleys) and Anton, as his KTM had coughed up a kidney during its service. Then Gavin's KTM gave up the ghost in Knysna, and Anton's KTM breathed its last in some tiny little town, so they all arrived in the big Ford, while Boere on his 1200GS was the only one of the pack to arrive on two wheels.

Finally the fires start dying down a bit and many Dogs head towards their rooms and tents, but as always a few of us diehards are still having fun, and we take over the DJ booth.

Soon the boere kęrels have the bar maids two-stepping round the small dance floor as if they were born to it, with all of us cheering them on. We even line dance to the Macarena, stomping around and swinging our hips. Then MapSource realises that I'm also of the sokkie generation, and I find another test of my endurance - two-stepping in heavy adventure boots. I hadn't taken them off before because I was too cold and lazy, but trying to traipse daintily around the dance floor without mangling poor MapSource's feet convinces me, and I quickly kick them off between sets and continue in my thick socks.

We are having huge fun and laughter when Daddy Gérrard comes stomping in, complaining that the music is too loud because the speaker is facing the campsite. We turn the speaker around but to no avail - Gérrard enforces lights out and gives us one more song. Someone goois on something dire and I step in quickly to save the night with Sia's "Titanium". The bar maids and I sing at full voice, nullifying the turning down of the speaker, reckoning ourselves full on pop stars.

A sullen Frikkie appears again, probably woken from sleep and looking for a rusk and I point out where everything is. Every one retires to the remaining fire and the conversation quietens down. Frikkie asks me: "So what is there to do here? Are we just going to stay in camp tomorrow? If I'd known, I wouldn't have come."

"You can do anything you want", I answer, "You can visit Willowmore, or ride through to Patensie, or go for a hike, or stay here and have a few drinks", and I tell him about our plans to ride to Smitskraal, and invite him along if he wants to. He perks up a bit, and heads off to bed.

I crawl into my tent at about 02:15, to find my blow up mattress in a sad state of deflation. I huff a few more breaths into it, but I know that it has sprung a leak, and the chances of a padded sleep is nil. Nevertheless I plug my ears and climb into my down sleeping bag with all my clothes on, and snuggle in for what sleep I can snatch. Somewhere during the morning I wake up with an aching hip, blow into the mattress a few more times, turn around and amazingly catch another snooze. Then I wake up from the other hip complaining about the close contact with the cold hard ground, and I crawl out of the tent. No use trying to sleep further.

I take a walk around and greet the early morning dogs. I love that purple scarf thing Frikkie has on his head, but he ignores my strong hints on donating it to a true purple diva :xxbah:

I shun breakfast and head for the showers, and get dressed quickly when I see Keith and Co are almost ready to ride. Frikkie and Sonja are also soon ready and it's just me holding up the pack, struggling to get the cold Hooligan to start. When he finally does, he emits the vilest stream of black smoke, doing his best imitation a broken down diesel tractor. Again when the choke is closed, the black smoke stops, and this is the last time he smokes this badly, as the ride we go on is enough to clear ALL our pipes!

Nou kyk niggie   en ek haal aan uit jou verhaal :

The Woody Clan, Pierre, Sweisie and his lovely wife, and Woody1. Having met both Kobus and his wife, neither of whom are shy in conversation, I'm amazed at the quietness of his offspring. The quiet gene must have skipped a generation somewhere and doubled up in this one.

Is jy nie behoorlik opgevoed nie !!!!!

Kinders word gesien en nie gehoor nie... Al kom hulle van Brakpan af....Die regte kant van die spoor.  :imaposer:

Nice RR Ri, as I've said before, "you have a way with words", and it was a pleasure riding with you again.  :thumleft: Now where are the Smitskraal photies?

Its not only a good looking bike, it also rides exceptionally well, from what I could tell over the few km I rode it to clear that fuel blockage. Whoever worked that bike over did an amazing job.

Well balanced, excellent suspension and amazing low-end grunt from a willing and rather eager engine.

@Tony the Bony said same  :thumleft:

That would be the Hooligan Handler (or Wrangler) @Dux, who fixes, tunes, pimps and farkles my DR fleet. He knows a thing or two about suspension O0

All I know is I had the best ride :ricky:

Dankie vir goeie wense! En dankie, maar ek het mooier foto's om te plaas as my pers tone :lol8:

My suster ('n verpleegkundige) se raad is: drink pynpille tot jy nie meer pyn voel nie, en dan hou jy dit daar. So pyn is redelik onder beheer - sodra ek 'n twitch of a twinge voel, sluk ek 'n pil. Weet nie of my maag dit gaan hou nie maar die been is fyn :imaposer::

Once the Hooligan stops smoking like Gérrard, we head out Doornkloof's purgatory gate again. Free of weighty bags and with less fuel in the huge tank, Hooligan hops and skips out the stoney riverbed entrance like Bambi. We regroup outside the Doornkloof entrance for a moment, and then I get the go ahead from Keith to take off towards Baviaanskloof entrance.

It is a chilly but sunny morning, and beautiful. I sniff up deep lungfuls of cool air and dust as I turn Hooligan's ear. The open valley starts to narrow again and then we are at the entrance gate, where we are informed that we must pay R43 access per person per entry. There is no card machine or small change...

While we are busy trying to sort out payment, what with almost no one having cash on them (thanks Anwar!!), a 4x4 vehicle pulls up and the occupants take a walk around, admiring all the bikes. Anwar also grabs to opportunity to try Hooligan for size, and is amazed that his feet comfortably touches ground. He immediately asks whether Hooli is for sale, but I quickly disabuse him. Hooli is going to the grave with me, unless my nieces or nephews can pry it from my cold dead hands.

Frikkie generously sweeps and keeps an eye out for both me and Sonja, who in our girly fashion bring up the rear. I'm amazed at how well Sonja handles the terrain given her lack of experience - she had good tutoring for sure.


The road sweeps up and down and round blind corners, and crossing loose and rocky riverbeds every so often. It is huge fun!

... and suddenly we are at Smitskraal.

There is a party happening, with Boere's Bunch having a boerie braai and beers while spectating the river crossing. The guys with me head towards the actual crossing, but I slam on the breaks early. Cocky asks why I look so bleak, and I explain that I've ridden some of the rougher terrain I've come across up to this point, and need to regroup and regather strength before tackling the crossing.

I walk towards the crossing to join the cheering squad, and Mapsource very kindly joins and brings me a beer

On the way back, we stop at a hilltop lookout spot we saw on the way down. The view in Baviaanskloof is truly spectacular. Now I understand why Boere says he'll ride this kloof every day of the week.

Title: Re: EC Bash 10 - 14 May 2018: Purple Hooligan Rides Again!
Post by: Ri on June 22, 2018, 09:04:28 pm
Frikkie decided to skip the lookout post, as he thought Kai and Keith had carried on and it was only the girls meeting at the top. He chased them for quite some time and then gave up the ghost, waiting by the road side for us to come along. Then he takes off again towards the gate, while I wait for the rest to catch up and take the opportunity to photograph my handsome bike.

On the way to Smitskraal, on one of the steep downhills, as we went down a small 4x4 vehicle was crawling up, and we met near a hairpin bend. Because of the steepness and narrowness of the road, coupled with the steep drop next to me, I couldn't find space to come to a halt for them to pass me, and they just kept on crawling up. Then a water runoff ditch appeared in front of me when I was about 3m from the 4x4. I tried to swing inwards to miss it, and only managed to drop the Hooligan in front of the car. Fortunately they could stop in time. They jumped out to help me pick up the bike, and apologised for not seeing the ditch (!!!).

Normally I'm able to lift the bike myself, but the big fuel tank, though not full, made the bike too heavy. It's great to have such a big tank, but I regretfully realised it wouldn't do for anything other than highway gravel. It drew many admiring glances and comments though and people stopped me at fuel stations to chat about the bike. No damage to the bike, as the handlebar takes most of the brunt of the fall.

We get back to camp much later than we expect after the enjoyable ride. I'm nervously amped for the river crossing the following day, but realise that if I am to make the 08:00 deadline for leaving, I can't camp again as it would take me too long to pack. I organise to share a room with one of my compadres, and go pack up my stuff. Frikkie is friendly enough to lend a hand with the folding and forcing into the pannier bags, and soon we can join the spit braai again.

The evening's entertainment has started, and it is top notch.

After the most delicious dinner, I head off to bed early while the kite surfing starts up again on the dance floor. I regret not being able to join them, but tomorrow is going to be a tough day riding through Baviaanskloof with the Hooligan fully loaded. I manage a good night's sleep on a proper mattress after my deflating experience of the previous night.

The previous evening, Gérrard said the road from Smitskraal to Patensie isn't too bad, but we would need to stick to the cement tracks up Holgat Pass. I made a mental note and passed the information on to my new compadres before heading off to bed the previous night.

In the morning, I'm up early, being an intermittent sleeper at the best of times and worse when I'm away from home. I pack up my few things and head for the bike, hoping not to keep up my companions, who are almost ready to go. The camping terrain is already emptying fast.

Title: Re: EC Bash 10 - 14 May 2018: Purple Hooligan Rides Again!
Post by: Ri on June 23, 2018, 04:56:50 pm
We head off in the direction of Baviaanskloof Nature Reserve, pay the gate fees, and reach Smitskraal without incident. I volunteer to cross first so that the worst can happen and be done.

Anwar decides to don his rain suit bottoms to keep the water out of his riding boots, and I decide to do the same, but my rain suit is at the bottom of my pannier and by the time I'm dressed, the others have crossed Smitskraal already. More guys arrive and pass through, then wade back into the water to help the nervous people like me through.

Keith rides through without any hassles, Kai hot on his heels. Edgy and friend stand on this side of Smitskraal, pointing out the exit point.

Having finally donned my radioactive yellow rain suit pants, much to the mirth of those around me, I head down the stoney run up to Smitskraal, and promptly drop my bike on the wet round stones in the right track, as there are already two bikers standing in the left track. Hooligan is fully loaded and I can't lift him. The nearby bikers, wearing ear buds and standing with their backs to me, miss the commotion. A bit of a farce ensues, with the riders on the other end of Smitskraal pointing in my direction like a small forest of trees, and the bikers on this side looking around uncomprehendingly. Suddenly they spot me, and come running to my aid.

Anwar had analysed the river crossing from all angles, filming it and talking about it endlessly the previous night, questioning what line to take and when to cross over from one side to another. Despite assurances that the line didn't matter and you didn't really have to cross, he wasn't convinced. This may be why he looses his footing and dips his bike slightly during the crossing. Thank you to the kind samaritans who comes to his aid!

We make it to the cement lip on the far side, where Hooligan promptly chokes. "Come one, you've made it!" shouts Edgy, "Just gun it!" I punch Hooligan's happy button and open the throttle in one smooth move, and Hooligan obligingly climbs up the cement lip. Somehow, amazingly, I'd hit exactly the right spot to exit Smitskraal with the minimum fuss. I'm elated!

I join the line of bikes parked at the far end, take off the neon pants and walk back to spectate the other crossers, quietly pleased. The others are getting dressed after disrobing for the crossing.

We stop a while and watch other Smitskraal crossers. Next up is a KTM690 who cruises past us, swinging his one leg over the saddle to come to a stylish halt just beyond us. He changes his mind at the last minute, and swings into the road again, and swings right again just past a shrub in the road, where he loses balance and drops the 690 with a crash. We burst out laughing, and after righting the bike, he smilingly joins us.

Turns out they were camping next door to Doornkloof, and when our posse left that morning, someone in his group mentioned that one of the bikers is a girl. "No way!" he said, seeming pleased to find here is indeed a biker girl. I feel a bit self-conscious. I always wonder if guys expect something from the  Girls with bikes! (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=9354.0) thread. When I read of guys talking about how sexy a biker girl in riding gear is, my cropped grey unPhotoshopped self in slightly oversized kit pops into my mind's eye, and I have to smile.

Some women do sexy. I do belligerent.

Next up are KTM690's friends, one of whom on a big bike apparently laughed and pointed when his compadres needed help in Smitskraal. Now he hits the cement at the wrong end and angle and gets stuck, and his friends stand around laughing at him while he churns up Smitskraal. Finally they go in to help him out.

We also carry on towards Patensie.

I'm amazed at how Anwar rides. He is slightly shorter than I am, and rides a lowered BMW1200GS behemoth. He keeps a steady and unhurried pace no matter the terrain, which seems to mostly keep him out of trouble. I wonder whether he would like the DR650 if he ever bought one, as it is very low-tech after the BMW.

Anwar takes the lead as I'm a slow methodical dresser. I need to concentrate on what I'm doing, or I forget stuff like fastening the helmet or opening the petcock, which has caused many a heart-stopping moment when the bike chokes to a halt. And fastening that handy/stupid double zip on the jacket is a nightmare with my non-Bieber-like hips. My mind is an untrained puppy, jumping around, sniffing and licking everything and leaving a few droplets here and there, and needs to be guided with a firm rolled up newspaper hand to stay on the right path. How am I even a programmer? Grace of God, is all I can say. Bullheadedness also helps.

We round a corner and come across an unexpected sight: Anwar is standing in the middle of the paved road, Beemer lying on its side like a wounded beast. The culprit seems to have been the high uneven cement lip added to the paved path in order to guide water down the mountain. Anwar is fortunately unhurt, but his tankbag suffered some damage and needs to be packed elsewhere.

When I take my camera off Hooligan's handlebars, he unexpectedly attacks me ... the camber wasn't slanted enough for his lowered weight and he stood too upright, with the effect that I pulled him over onto his right side when I pulled at the bag. Kai obligingly practices his bike pick-up technique for the second time today.

Seems like it was a really fun bash and some exciting riding, nice RR. You're riding the world to a standstill lately, good going Ri.

Was a great bash, I'm really glad I could attend. Best was that Keith, Kai and Anwar were happy to have me accompany them home the hard way round. I thought it was very generous of them, considering they don't know my riding level. And they were great to ride with, unobtrusively keeping an eye on me without making me feel nannyed. There was no hurry, and lots of stops and pointers and support.

Unfortunately I rode myself to a standstill - holed up in bed with a broken ankle for a few weeks. At least gives me opportunity to finish my RRs  :deal:

I am somehow in the lead when we take off again, and I soon hit Holgat Pass' steep ascent and broken cement tracks. I stick to the inside lane, coming off the tracks every now and then but carefully getting back on again, keeping it nice and slow. The bits between the cement tracks aren't too bad, except here and there it is badly eroded, making it hard to climb on the track again.

A 4x4 vehicle approaches from above and I pull completely over onto the left and wait for them to pass. They hoot and wave appreciatively. I soon reach the lookout point on top of the hill, park the Hooligan and start taking photo's. The others however are nowhere in sight, and I wait.

Then Kai appears with the news that Anwar fell at the bottom of Holgat Pass. Keith is with him, but they are too far away for Kai to communicate with them and find out how things are going.

Loo with a view. These longdrops are both open to the front, with proper toilet seats albeit without any flushing mechanism. They are clean and well-maintained, and a blessing to such as I who absolutely hate bush toileting

Finally we hear vehicles approaching and assuming it is Keith and Anwar, I take up position to get a nice passing action shot. But it turns out to be the 4x4 vehicle I photographed coming through Smitskraal yesterday, on their way back to Patensie, and they have Anwar as passenger, followed by Keith.

It seems Anwar crashed the BWM1200GS properly, breaking the side cover and causing oil to leak everywhere. He also broke his collarbone. The kind people in the 4x4 took him all the way to PE, where he took an airplane home for X-rays and treatment. Seems he also has great insurance - by the time we were halfway to Groot Brak, his motorbike had already been recovered. He had an operation to plate the collarbone, and has reported that he is doing well and is mobile again already.  :thumleft:

Ek gaan maar verby hou as ek julle party raakry... Lyk na 'n ongeluk wat plek soek om te gebeur.  :laughing4:

As we take a somber little break, more bikers appear and it turns into something of an EC Bash afterparty.

Then Vaalbaas and his companions rock up. They arrived so late at the spitbraai the previous evening, I didn't even know they were there. He stops, opens his bag and gestures me to come closer - his infamous Chili Bites! I smile a huge thank you and chow down on this unexpected treat.

After shooting the breeze full of holes, we all mount up and get going again. The beautiful views appear around very corner and over every hill. How blessed we are to ride in this beautiful country!

Title: Re: EC Bash 10 - 14 May 2018: Purple Hooligan Rides Again!
Post by: Ri on June 24, 2018, 09:59:25 pm
The ride carries on fairly uneventfully and ends in a steep twisty descent. Halfway down a turn, Hooligan suddenly starts coughing and stuttering, and then dies. Thank goodness I’m in a low gear as the back wheel immediately locks up into a small skid. I turn the petcock to Reserve and open the choke, but Hooligan wants none of this starting business. I can’t imagine that he should need reserve either, as the massive tank is still probably half full. I try again a few times and then stop, worried about flooding the carburettor and killing the battery. Keith stops next to me and makes a few suggestions, but nothing works. Finally he instructs me to get onto his KLR and see whether my feet can touch ground.

I gingerly swing onto his KLR and stand on tippy toe. This is apparently enough ground contact as far as Keith is concerned, and he tells me to ride the bike down. I’m terrified of dropping the bike, and confused by all the blinking lights - the KLR dashboard resembles a Boeing cockpit. Keith tells me how to start and stop the bike, and I nervously push off. The throttle is not as sticky as the Hooligan’s, and every tiny movement makes the bike twitch and jump. I crawl down the steep bends like a very newbie bike rider, with jerks and starts.

Suddenly Keith comes roaring along on the Hooligan and shows me to pull over, which I do with alacrity. Somehow he had gotten Hooligan going again, and I could continue on my stodgy way. Hooligan behaved himself well after this except when we reached the bottom, after a tight turn and river crossing he started to sputter again, but I just opened the choke and twisted the throttle, and the sputtering stopped. Later on Keith told me it might have been a blockage in the fuel pipe, but once it was cleared there were no more issues with the bike.


At Patensie I fill up the Hooligan's monstrous tank. Keith and Kai fill up at Hankey, so they can make the next stop. Keith also stops to take a photo of the biggest sun dial for Anwar.

Then, due to time constraints, we head for the N2 and gun it to George. The scenery is still beautiful, but it is windy and not too much fun. We stop at Stormsrivier to fill up on fuel and hot MacD chippies - one of the few things I'll eat there. A 4x4 pulls into the fuel station as well, and Keith speculates that it looks like Trygve Roberts, who films and maintains the Mountain Passes of SA website.

When I awkwardly paddle backwards to turn around to leave, two men walk up with admiring glances, exclaiming about the large tank on Hooligan and how this is the way a bike should be set up. We chat for a moment and I try not to rush, aware that Keith and Kai are waiting for me at the exit. Keith generously includes a small detour for us to ride a closed and unmaintained road, featured on Trygve's site. It is absolutely beautiful. Bloukrans?

We carry on towards Groot Brak at a fast pace. When we reach Knysna, dusk starts to fall as we hit the 7 Passes Road. We carry on on it for a while, until Keith decides there's no point, as we can't admire the views, and we exit near George and fly towards Groot Brak. Along the way, we stop for Keith to deliver something to someone... talk about good service! We reach Groot Brak in the dark, and thankfully find our guest house for the night. Anwar apparently found the place on a Go Daddy deal or some such, and it is excellent. The rooms are huge and I turn up the aircon to the max, frozen to the bone.

Sonja stops by to say hallo and, too tired to go out for dinner, we order room service, a mixture of toasted sandwiches, calamari and chicken strips and other finger foods. It is delicious and barely touches sides. We visit deep into the night and then head off to sleep. I'm a little relieved to have the big double bed to myself. I was supposed to share a room with twin beds with Anwar, but there was a mix-up.

I sleep a log and probably snore like a banshee, and wake up early and refreshed. We have a fantastic breakfast and the owner of the establishment, a microlight pilot, comes to greet Keith who is also one.

Post by: Ri on June 27, 2018, 10:20:00 pm
On the riding menu for today is the Attaquas Pass from south to west, and one of my favourites, Anysberg. I don't know much about Attequas Pass except that it is a bit challenging and very, very beautiful. As to Anysberg, I would still like to stay over one night and do some star gazing. Every time I pass through this reserve I buy a plot of land... or three. I hope to pass through it today unscathed.

From Groot Brak we head through to the Botlierskop Game Reserve, Dagbreek Pass up to Moordkuil Pass, where we turn left towards Bonnievale. These roads are welcome and familiar, old friends from my two Garden Route rides in December, wide and sweeping with sometimes steep up- and downhills with tight turns.

Before we reach Bonnievale we turn left again at Haelkraal, and things become interesting. There are suddenly swooping and eroded little uphills and downhills covered in turns in lose gravel, sand, mud and little stones, at first sweeping through beautiful plantations and then suddenly out in the arid open. There are a few gates in our way, but we politely close all of them.

Soon we find ourselves at the Bonniedale farm gate, and the prospect of a nice cold beer.

We skid to a halt on the lawns of Bonniedale Farm, and Keith heads off to find the owners, whom he knows well. Sadly they are overseas, but the caretaker kindly attends to us.

Bonniedale Farm has camping facilities and can cater for a fair number of people. Maybe at some point we should consider having a Bash at this lovely venue. Although it is not the most accessible - but isn't this the point? - you will truly be away from it all, and there are a range of activities from 4x4 route to hiking etc, and the old northern route is a great challenge for any plastics that rock up.

I'm having an absolute adrenaline-fueled blast, to such an extent that on one corner I inadvertently open instead of ease the throttle and find myself careening towards a terrifying drop. At the last moment self-preservation kicks in, and I close the throttle, press lightly on the brake and throw my weight to the left to get Hooligan back on track. Keith tells me he had a momentary vision of me disappearing over the edge, a Hooligan-and-Ri version of Thelma & Louise.

Nee, daai is die Noordelike roete, meer vir die plastics as ons groot bikes.
Ons het die westerlike ingang gebruik, van Haelkraal se kant af, en dan die Oosterlike uitgang tot amper by Cloetes Pas

We spend too long at lunch, and although much refreshed, we need to start hurrying. Our route winds around to incorporate as much gravel as possible, of which I fully approve, but the going is a little tedious. Kai or Keith pulls away, I'm in the middle and the other follows. I fall back to stay out of the leader's dust trail as it is exceptionally dry. He then slows down, possibly thinking I'm not coping with the speed. I speed up into his billowing dust cloud to encourage him to pick up speed. I then fall back again to stay out of the dust, and the cycle repeats.

At one point after we turn right towards Prinspoort Pass, Keith motions me to go ahead and I pull off, marveling in undusted views and beautiful fresh air up my nostrils. Eventually I stop to wait for Keith and Kai, to check that I'm still on the right route. I take a few action shots as they shoot past.

We turn into the Anysberg Reserve and my heart speeds up in anticipation of the pebbly 2-spoor and long curvy stretch of thick sand my memory serves up. Keith motions me ahead again, and I grab the bull Hooligan by the horns handlebars and storm the castle 2-spoor track. To my surprise and slight disappointment, it's not nearly as challenging as I expect it to be. I wish I could say my riding has improved that much since I rode through here last, but in truth they are improving the road, and have scraped and built up significant stretches of it into hard packed gravel highway. In almost not time at all, I reach the office just this side of the middle of Anysberg, and head for the ablution facilities.

I'm always curious about the treasures that must be hidden in these mountain folds, and plan to one day come stay over and explore them. In a zillion years, when I've worked back my negative leave...

Keith nods and I head off again, straight into the stare of the sinking sun sulking above the horizon. I'm wearing dark glasses but they don't make much difference; I angle my head in all directions to keep the helmet's peak between the stabbing sun and my seeking eyes. The road becomes challenging again - this side clearly hasn't seen a grader yet - and I rise into attack position and storm ahead as fast as I dare - and then a little faster still. It becomes a long, magical moment of machine and motion, of speed and danger and beauty and harmony; a thrilling chase against encroaching darkness, peering into the dusty golden haze through slitted eyes. I feel like I'm riding to qualify for the Amageza. I charge ahead, feeling eternal and ephemeral, wishing this moment, this ride, would never end.

Too soon, the gate of Anysberg appears and I slide to a halt to wait for my companions, savouring this amazing adventure. I wait, and wait some more, and start to worry that one of them had taken a tumble. Finally they appear around the bend. Apparently Keith found it hard to believe my speed, and kept checking I hadn't fallen by the wayside. They don't look very happy; neither of them have peaks on their helmets, and Keith is riding with one hand shielding his face from the sun. It is hard going.

We turn towards Touwsrivier and speed into a thick dusty haze. At last the sun sinks behind the mountains, and we ride in gathering dusk. At Touwsrivier we stop to fill up, and to my deep dismay I realise that I'd lost my driver's licence and bank card somewhere in Anysberg. I use my banking app the cancel my bank card, and resign myself to applying for a new driver's licence when I get back from Namibia, maybe before if I have time. Keith graciously covers my fuel cost - thanks Keith, I still owe you! - and we climb onto the N1 and start the last leg home. It is cold, and we agree to take the Hugenot Tunnel, which I never take, never mind on a bike, because I love riding over Du Toits and I don't like the thought of all those exhaust fumes. The first few hundred metres into the tunnel is a gagging, suffocating experience but then it becomes fresher all the way to the other end of the tunnel.

Along the way, now fully dark, we stop to say good bye, and to my delight I receive hug after exhuberant hug. We'd survived this glorious, never ending day! What a journey, what a ride!

Salut, my compadres! We will ride again.

Epilogue

About 10 days after this trip I receive a phone call from a lady who works in the Anysberg reserve. Someone found my bank card and driver's licence, after they had apparently been ridden over and destroyed, and handed them over to her.

I'm stunned. I don't even know how she tracked me down. I thank her profusely and ask her to please post it to my sister, whom I'm visiting soon. Even a destroyed driver's license is better than nothing. When I come back from the Namibia trip my cards had arrived - by registered post. The bank card is indeed destroyed and unusable, but the driver's licence is completely fine.

How do you say thank you for such a generous act of tracking a person down and ensuring they receive their stuff?

By Bonnidale was julle daar deur die rivier onder by die kamp plekke...oor daai klippe in die rivier en to links op teen die berg uit ?
Nee, daai is die Noordelike roete, meer vir die plastics as ons groot bikes.
Ons het die westerlike ingang gebruik, van Haelkraal se kant af, en dan die Oosterlike uitgang tot amper by Cloetes Pas

Ek wou se, want ek het hom verlede Desember met die Jeep gery en EK sal hom nie met my bike aandurf nie.
Die hek is daar bo in elk geval gesluit so jy kan bo op die berg bietjie rondry en dan moet jy weer daar afkom.  :thumleft:

Woody, jy kan reel met Nico by Bonniedale vir ‘n permit en hy sal n plan maak met daai hek.
Maar die res van daai pad noordwards is meer geskik vir n bergfiets (“mountainbike”?)
