Title: Kruger & Kaapsehoop - A photo report
Post by: Noneking on April 21, 2019, 06:26:51 pm
@Orangeswifty visited family in Nelspruit and we planned a ride together to coincide with his visit.

A few photos of the ride . Pics by myself, @Ghato  and @Orangeswifty


The day started out with a niggle when Swifty ran out of petrol on his way to the filling station where we arrange to meet.

We headed for Uitkyk Pass as the the sun was rising

When in Kaapschehoop, you must visit Miz Gooseberry's, a lekker little tuis nywerheid and they serve the best coffee in Kaapschehoop. my boet and his wife own the place, Pete and Berry Legg.

Worked on a project with your brother sometime last year and he told me about the place.
Was there in December but they were closed, he did mention that they are only open on certain weekends?
According to Google they have the best rating in the area  :thumleft:

Wow, difficult subject as they are so different.
950SE is an absolute beast, comes with and extreme fun and cool factor, suspension that very few people can push to the limit.
I lost count of how many times the suspension saved my butt
Bulletproof LC8 motor and clutch
But they are getting old, body parts are being discontinued...

790 is a lot more practical for most Adv Riders, double the fuel range and awesome tech
Brakes and lights are x10 better, awesome to ride on tar
Great suspension

I see the 790 as the replacement for a 990 (How dare he!!) but not the SE
I believe there are some rumors doing the rounds regarding a possible "890 Super Enduro"  >:D >:D >:D

Oh okay, I was there about three years on my 1200 with my wife, great touring country.
