Title: Guess who I just bumped into ?...............Noraly
Post by: Wild Hearted Son on February 17, 2021, 12:06:01 pm
Our favourite Itchy Boots gal arrived in SA last night.
I just bumped into her in Fire It Up ! Bryanston  where she is buying herself an XR.

Those blue eyes are a dead giveaway & I recognised her immediately even with the face mask.

She hasn't worked out a hard & fast itinerary yet & is sort of playing it by ear , Covid permitting.

We had a great 10 minute chat
What a lovely person.
Day = made.

Yes, just like that.

She said she has finally got her Royal Enfield back from wherever she had to leave it but it's in terrible state.
Not too phased as she'd made her mind up not to ride Royal Enfield again.

She said she has fitted a full Rally Raid kit on her little Honda & we wouldn't recognise it now & was surprised that we don't have the CB500X here.

I meant her little CB500X that she calls Ronin & went to Iceland on.
She appeared to be buying a  XR650L today, but I could be wrong wasn't paying attention to the bike to be honest.

CB500        ...           Not really an adventure bike

Quite a, European-mainly I think, following, and loadsa goodies for sale for them...

https://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/honda-cb500x-cb500f

Won't make them a "real" adventure bike though I think, a 7/890 or T7 will kick it arse in the off bits, and pricewise (once farkled, RR can't be called cheap!) a better option also... but, Europe's different, loooong liasons on tar inevitable, and then - especially when you got the bike already! - it makes sense for some.

Same here, and on 3 successive GT750's. Tyres in those day were much better suited to D'S riding, those nylon Cheng-Shins would cut the Tankwa stones.

Yes, we have a lockdown in the Netherlands. All non-essential  shops are closed and we are advised not to go on holiday abroad. Also we have to stay at home between 21:00 h and 04:30 h.
But it is possible to fly to another country if they will let you in. (most of the countries I know,  you need to show a negative covid test to get in).

I can't blame Noraly to go to South Africa. I have been there twice and loved it.
I'm looking forward to see her video's again.

Actually, she inspired me and my son to make our own YouTube channel about motorcycle riding.  It is in Dutch with English subtitles. ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7otpMkkVKqR3SyQiVy6ehw )

Quite possibly, but Noraly's videos are far better edited and entertaining to watch compared to Kinga (Being forced to watch her feet taping each other after falling on her bed, at whatever place she stays at in every video is just annoying)

I bet some of you are trying to find out where she will be tomorrow as we speak, and the roads, tracks, trails will look like Piccadilly Circus in the coming weeks as everyone covers as much ground as possible, hoping for a chance encounter and the opportunity to show her the best places to ride. :imaposer:

Actually she said pretty much that.
She doesn't want a crowd of people waiting at places or following her around.

For that reason she doesn't post her vlogs until she is well away from wherever the episode is filmed.
I would imagine it is going to be a couple of months at least before she posts anything about SA.

Because it's dangerous for a woman traveling alone in SA!
And she just may need help!
She also looks very good so I can protect her from horny persterers!
And I've got time enough, scroo my boss for a while, I also need some fun.
If she gets a puncture I can help her.
I always drool anyway, my mates call me Bulldog, so...
Maybe she runs out of petrol, and my bike has a big tank - did I mention I own a wanker pipe for this?
Also, I can warn her not to eat those last garage pies, she may get unwell.
She's from Holland, zei drijf raait on ze roads, so I can ride in front of her so she will be safer.

I meant her little CB500X that she calls Ronin & went to Iceland on.
She appeared to be buying a XR650L today.
Very tall bike for her

She actually ended up buying a CRF230L.

on her little Honda

What Honda 125/250L?

I meant her little CB500X that she calls Ronin & went to Iceland on.
She appeared to be buying a XR650L today.
Very tall bike for her

I was at Fire It Up! again this morning & checked with Berto
She actually ended up buying a CRF230L.

I'm sure some of our intrepid traders will want to use this opportunity to rid themselves of leftover luggage racks, hard panniers etc for a discontinued bike which was never suited for such in the first place but they still count it as stock every time.....  O0  :P




On that, Chris from Flying Brick, I tried to 'ping' you by typing the "@Flyin " thingy.... but your name does not pop up?  ???
Can't scroll down either if there's more options than displayed, so you don't exist anymore  ;)
Perhaps try this yourself & see if I'm an idjit or, remotely possible also, have a lil point?

Considering her fairly high production values, and her setup, she seems to still enjoy it. She probably has it down to an art by now, with markers and whatnot.

And it allows her to do what she wants, i.e. settle in SA for a period of time, buy a new bike, kit it out and ride around for as long as she pleases. It probably makes the "just a job" thing much more bearable.

Sure we could all do it if we wanted to. Strange, then, that we aren't ;-)

I'm guessing it's what everyone here is telling her wherever she stops hence her latest Instagram post. Like her journey, intersting to see the tracks you know being ridden by someone from another country. Lots for her to see and explore. Green hills and mountains of MP, grasslands of KZN, the dry open Karoo and off course the WC which will seem a bit like home.

Yeh. I did sound as if I was not very happy , didn't it ? I had just seen off a group of adventure riders I had taken around these mountains the whole weekend. I was tired , and have not yet serviced and cleaned up the chalets by the time she called. When I heard that it was only one person , we quickly made a plan to accommodate her. Not considering the fact that she was a female , but the fact that she was a biker. Never heard of her before thought.

I was tired , and have not yet serviced and cleaned up the chalets by the time she called. When I heard that it was only one person , we quickly made a plan to accommodate her. Not considering the fact that she was a female , but the fact that she was a biker. Never heard of her before thought.

When I read the above, and then I listen to all the lame ass excuses from the bunch of wimps that are my regular riding group - nb. they are my good friends but they are still a bunch of pussies - who declare so many local roads as no go places - even for a bunch of up to a dozen males - I rejoice for the young lady and despair for male bikers in general.  :'( :xxbah:

its lekker, lost interest in her a while back, but this has renewed it. I chuckled at the last episode where she parked outside the gate and called the owner about accommodation for the night, he didn't sound very happy and said no immediately, and said 'we are not available for your group' but changed his tune after he realized she was a lone female.  :lol8: glad it worked out.

We did chat for a while yes. Although she did most of the talking.
I offered to take her on our scenic route , but she declined. Firstly because she rides solo only , and does not want company when on the bike. Secondly , she had to spend the day working on her video editing , after she accompanied me in the vehicle to go look for our raft that had washed away during the flooding that night. I have an idea some of that footage will be in her next video.
She keeps her travel plans to herself , and does not reveal her next destination , although she did mention that she was going to Graskop the next day.
Seems like she has a basic idea of where she wants to go , and then plans a route to get her there the day before.

The "waiting party" is who's enabling her to do her travelling. Perhaps we could all refrain from riding until she's left SA, so as not to spoil her solo riding experience?

I am sure she will head your way eventually, get your welcome banners and rusks ready. I am sure she would be delighted. or it sounds like, she will find another way just to avoid you. clever lady.

I am really enjoying the episodes. Her editing is of high quality and I respect what she is busy with. She also picked the right bike for her adventure.

Some of the things I want to say have been mentioned on previous pages. The only thing that really bothered me, probably because I am a father of a little girl is the insert where she walks the streets of Joburg between the guesthouse & Fire It Up. Now I know and read everything she says about fear and living without fear but she did not know or realise how dangerous the situtation really was. Pretty, blond girl walking around with a backpack and a very expensive camera on a stick does and will attract the wrong crowd to a very easy target. She can write about living fearlessly all she likes but it takes just two armed, uneducated savages in a taxi to stop next to her and change the game completely. I feel that FireItUp could have done more to provide her with a lift during the transaction.

It's a different danger to simply riding the countryside on a 250 scrambler. She has much more control over this than walking to and from a guesthouse in Joburg.

In the meantime I really wish her well and I am looking forward to her informative content.

Yes, this naive little traveller should be educated, for her own safety.

Most dangerous belief that no one means you harm.

Unfortunately many cases of girls like her, ending up murdered.

We want to prevent spoiling her experience in Africa, so we go; "Yes, brave girl, you fear nothing!", but if her life could be saved, surely it is worth giving her an "African education"?

The alternative is to just shrug, let her enjoy what she does, and life will take it's path.

Would not do it with my own family, but she is of course nothing to me.

Post by: Ri on March 11, 2021, 10:20:42 pm

I'm pretty sure she would've checked with the guest house owners and Fire It Up whether it's safe to walk the streets. I also noticed very little foot and other traffic while she took her walk. It was a quiet area. Yes you get those, even in Jozi, City of Evil, I lived there for 2 years. She probably heard the worst stories about South Africa while doing her research, I'm sure she is aware of what she is letting herself in for.

I haven't watched many of her videos; did I miss the bikini episodes? Is she flaunting it all over the place and showing cleavage and stuff? I don't follow FortNine reviews because the guy presumably has a penis, yet you are saying everyone only follows Noraly because she is a pretty female. That's patronising. Have you even watched a single episode before critiquing her so thoroughly?

Interessant van Iceland is dat 100% van hulle krag uit warmwaterbronne opgewek word. Zero steenkool, etc!  Cool landjie!! :thumleft:

At the end of her SA tour she would have ridden more of our country than most of the experts on travelling here.

We all come from different perspectives, I have probably done more biking in my 21 months of national service bike squad than most of the "experts on here."

But some watch SOA, others love the Cardashians.

I am really enjoying the episodes. Her editing is of high quality and I respect what she is busy with. She also picked the right bike for her adventure.

Some of the things I want to say have been mentioned on previous pages. The only thing that really bothered me, probably because I am a father of a little girl is the insert where she walks the streets of Joburg between the guesthouse & Fire It Up.

Fire it Up is in Fourways. Not exactly the heart of Alex....

I'm pretty sure she would've checked with the guest house owners and Fire It Up whether it's safe to walk the streets. I also noticed very little foot and other traffic while she took her walk. It was a quiet area. Yes you get those, even in Jozi, City of Evil, I lived there for 2 years. She probably heard the worst stories about South Africa while doing her research, I'm sure she is aware of what she is letting herself in for.

I haven't watched many of her videos; did I miss the bikini episodes? Is she flaunting it all over the place and showing cleavage and stuff? I don't follow FortNine reviews because the guy presumably has a penis, yet you are saying everyone only follows Noraly because she is a pretty female. That's patronising. Have you even watched a single episode before critiquing her so thoroughly?
As with all things internet...... it brings out the absolute worst in people. The average keyboard jockey on here would never dare the same behaviour in front of their wives, daughters or the dominee.

She has more balls than most of the tough guys on here who wouldn’t even attempt  the life threatening ride over Breedt’s Nek solo

Watched her Sani pass video, and really??  Is the handbrake on? Yes it is on. :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

How did Breedt's neck come into the picture, when you fall over on Sani?

To be fair, Dan, I still plan to go fall on Sani .

Difference being she overbalanced her bike, whereas I'll probably fall over trying to negotiate that corner :eek:

That area is stunning just a shame the little towns are going down the drain. I cant believe with so much potential for generating an income so very little effort is put in to at least make the towns look presentable. Yes she is taking chances skipping the stop signs like that ! Haenertsburg, Kaapsehoop, some of the small towns that you still want to visit in that area. Sabie also not bad the last time I was there.

I thought the same, those places were all free to go view when I last went there, but they do also look much better kept, with nice walkways, railings etc.
But yes, a day tour with the family around all those sights can have you feeling a little broke at the end of the day

There has been charges for long as I can remember. Was supposed to be to stop the Vagrants camping there the whole time. I remember as one of the sites there used to be a coke fridge standing in the middle of nowhere with an extension lead just disappearing into the bushes. I always wondered where it was plugged in.
Yes we have a beautiful country especially when seen through the eyes of someone for the first time and cannot remember how these places once was. Its interesting that visitors from overseas from all the places we all wnat to run off and live in still find what we have great.

I was wondering too.
When I was riding in South Africa I did a safari tour in the Kruger.
If you live in Europe and are visiting South Africa, it is a shame not to do a safari tour in the Kruger. There is nothing like that in Europe.
It was not cheap, but for me it was worth every penny (or rand)   ( https://jkrijt.home.xs4all.nl/trips/lesotho/sa3.shtml )
I also visited Kaapsehoop where the wild horses are, like Noraly did.
Now I am watching Noraly her videos on YouTube, I really want to visit my family in South Africa again   :)

i dont think she hides where she is going, she prefers to tell it on the day, she has done this for the last 4 yrs to which my wife and i have subscribed, also about cost, the woman is a dollar millionaire, cost doesnt really factor in, she pays whatever she needs to. she also gets many free bike gifts and equipment.she did also mention the kruger and what they said about riding a bike in there, you guys need to pay attention. she wont spend money on a car/4x4  driven safari, why would she on a biking vlog??. she certainly isnt the best youtube adventurer out there but its a pleasant few minutes and she is after all out there and we are the ones watching, i think she handles herself pretty well.

So to be fair, you cant ride a bike in the Kruger, so that rules out the Kruger for her.
 
What else have we got up there? Loskop dam? She went there, Tzaneen, she went there, done a lot of the touristy things in ET.
While there is awesome riding up there, what else is there up there for her to tell a story about?
Julias' home?
I also suppose she cant be making every video about every waterfall in ET either.

Absolutely!! But seeing as she is going to be in country for a while, I am sure she will still make a plan to go spend some time there, but doubt it will form part of her YT episodes

I doubt she will end up leaving SA without going there  :thumleft:

I really hope not.

So to be fair, you cant ride a bike in the Kruger, so that rules out the Kruger for her.
 
What else have we got up there? Loskop dam? She went there, Tzaneen, she went there, done a lot of the touristy things in ET.
While there is awesome riding up there, what else is there up there for her to tell a story about?
Julias' home?
I also suppose she cant be making every video about every waterfall in ET either.

Come on, you must admit, biker or not, if you tour SA and you miss Kruger, you have missed one of SA's gems.

And when it comes to giving SA touring exposure, Kruger is a biggie.

I've never been to Kruger... I love the outdoors and really appreciate nature, but somehow the idea of driving around looking at game does not appeal to me that much.
But maybe I am swept away when I do go one day

I agree.
If I want to see wild animals, I look at an episode of National Geographic.....no need to pay over inflated accommodation prices and I save on tyre wear and diesel as well.  :thumleft:

I agree, been there once only and that's enough. But for the European who is only used to zoos, Kruger is magic.

Yes way different.
I go to Kruger for the bush getaway feel, not to see the big 5 like in a zoo.
Obviously that depends on where and when you go.

How do you get hold of her? I invited her for a braai when she is in the PE area, but got no reply. Not sure if it is because it was in the comments section.

My 2x girls are big followers of her and it would be like a "Movie Star" coming for dinner for them.

I also think it would be a nice way for them to learn that at the end of the day everyone is just human and that they can be whatever they want to be.

I see she survived Sani. Promises to put the vid up this afternoon.
I was wondering about that, Sani isnt very easy at the moment, and I checked some of her older vids and her technical skills not the best out there. Very good thins she had the small-ish Honda and could go without luggage. Will be interesting to hear her comments re Sani, always a nice ride.

Must say, her horseback ride, its been a while since I see someone have a smile that big!

I know of some people one this very forum who would not even dare to entertain the mere thought of being out riding alone on their own between all the unknown and dangerous elements without any form of support or safety backup let alone doing it as a single woman in several  foreign countries without to much planning and infrastructure involved.

She has travelled more mileage on a bike than most of us on this forum have travelled in our vehicles and on bikes combined with very little if any significant injuries resulting in little if any recovery time or down time.

Sani Pass is in my back yard. In 2017 I lifted my wife up on a GS1200. Not a damn would I attempt that now. A couple of weeks ago I went up on my DR650  and had to really concentrate. It is deteriorating fast. Probably not the most difficult pass but if maintenance is not done could well become really difficult.

42KM from Underberg to top.
Real technical section is from SA border to Leshoto border. 8Km.

I did it in 1hour and 15 minutes with the 1200GSA.  That included the two border crossings.  The road was in a better state than now after the rains.

We went up Sani pass a week ago with big adventure bikes and most of the group had to turn around and did not make it to the top. The road is in a really bad state, well done to her for making it up the pass, even with a smaller bike it is still an achievement for a lady to do it.

42KM from Underberg to top.
Real technical section is from SA border to Leshoto border. 8Km.

I did it in 1hour and 15 minutes with the 1200GSA.  That included the two border crossings.  The road was in a better state than now after the rains.

YOWSER, Sani is looking Farked!!! Thats really rough at the moment, I think she would have been super surprised to hear that taxis go up and down there too  :lol8:, I  doubt they are doing so now though

Well done Noraly, with no dropping,  :thumleft:

I have to disagree, that is NOT the most difficult mountain pass in SA

Could also depend on road conditions at the time but Orrie Baragwanath Pass is for me the most difficult, but I am sure there are worse that I havent yet attempted
Not even close.....
But still a good challenge at the moment and good on her for doing it solo!
\
I found it quite difficult. fell of a lot. was in my early riding days and never got back to do it again

It all comes down to road conditions. looking at what it is now compared to when we went up, we had it easy apparently  :peepwall:

Seriously - So what if she never talks about/visits Kruger?

Its her trip. Her biases, her opinions, her Ride reports, HER MONEY.

Most difficult pass for her.

Why can't we respect that?

She's not a riding god like so many here, a good thing I think.   :thumleft:  Hangg on, I know what it is: Jealousy makes you nasty.   >:D

I think its refreshing to see something we know so well through other peoples eyes.

Now go ride your bikes and make your own vids so we can compare them to hers.  :deal: :ricky:

It's obviously not the most difficult pass in the country. I've seen vids of places that I'd never dare attempt, but I did Sani a few years back and it was just about the hardest ride I've ever done. And it was in fairly good nick, apparently. In my eyes, these women who are riding it solo are incredibly intrepid.

If the criteria is dangerous, not difficult, then Franschhoek pass is at the top. ::)

Or perhaps Van Reenen's?

It is not the same pass you went up a while ago but ten out ten for the stirring. This summer we have had an incredible amount of rain here in Underberg - really vicious storms with rivers flooding.
As for the taxis. Right now I think it is easier to go up Sani Pass in a 4X4 than a bike. Bikes do not have low range and require momentum to stay upright. Anyway, enough about Sani Pass. Think the girl did great getting up and down without falling off once.

Sani is a short pass, condition depending it takes some skill to navigate, there are countless more treacherous passes around SA. the difference is, Sani pass is know as the holy grail of passes, purely because almost everyone knows about it or has heard harrowing tales of near death experiences by the hardest of hardcore riders. Well done to Noraly! it is a bucket list pass.  :thumleft: I remember being very surprised at how short it was. blink and its done.

I watched the video yesterday and the pass is the worst I have ever seen it. I would really have not liked to attempt it at all in fact I would have turned back even in my KLR. Her skills are better that mine that is for sure.

I think Kinga had it a lot harder with the considerably bigger bike and it also being completely loaded. And while its rougher now, she did not do it that long ago and it was already rough. Also saying she needed help...she dropped the bike when pulling away, with some drama she would have managed to get it up imo.
 Noraly carried no luggage and was on a 250.

It didn't look that bad to me, having completed some washed out passes in Colorado, and according to Weedkiller, the technical section isn't that long in distance.

Momentum is key.

Don't really see the point of over analysing and citicising everything about her planning, motivation, riding skill or choice of machine. Why not take it as it is, an interesting read by a woman who is lucky enough to ride wherever she wants in the world and chooses to visit our country and write/post something entertaining for us to follow.

And as for that bloody Sani  ::).  I tried and failed, about 10 years ago, driven back from the first hairpin with a sprained hand, sore ribs, and border closing time looming. Failed because I went about everything wrong. 1: riding alone. 2: Great heavy overloaded 1150, when I had a 650 available. 3: Totally knackered before I even got there, having ridden all the way from Quhebuggerit, formerly PE without a rest.. Exhaustion was what did me in, and I vowed to come back with a different bike, better prepared, and hopefully in a group.

Now of course the road is a heluva lot worse, and I'm 10 years weaker.  :'(

strange , now that a woman has cracked sani on her own, the pass is no longer difficult. however for the last ten years its been like a badge of honour for the adventure riders.reading the comments [not all of them] it seems to me that a lot of ego`s have been smashed. i cant remember when i last read a riders report of someone doing it alone, usually its with ten mates and they have to rest at the top for half a day before coming down. great ride by itchyboots.

Are you just stirring?
Her comment is on it being the most difficult, its not and that statement is challenged.

my 75kg stepfather as a gravel noob did Sani with my mother as pillion and full camping gear on a 1200 super tenere 7 years ago. It was really not that bad in the past.
It is a lot tougher now, but you can always send Noraly just around the corner to Old mill drift and redefine "most difficult".



No one is mentioning the tarring of the road. They seem to be very busy and building a solid road. We should have it finally tarred by 2030! by then I would have either evolved to chilling on my 1350GS or trailering my hardcore 500 to where I want to ride. either way it will be a win!

I'm watching her footage of Sani Pass now, doesn't appear to have any spare fuel with her, how long is Sani Pass and how long does it typically take to traverse?

@big oil

It is 8km from border to border and about 30km from the nearest town.

First time we did it took around 2 hours and I was heavy tired from assisting to pick up bikes.
Second time took 8 or 18 minutes or something like that.

Depends highly on bike, rider skill and condition of pass.

Watched her vid last night.  No thanks.  I'd not be riding my bike up there in the condition it's in. Especially alone like that.  Obviously a CRF230 is a different story, but being on a big bike in that terrain is my idea of a nightmare.

It didn't look that bad to me, having completed some washed out passes in Colorado, and according to Weedkiller, the technical section isn't that long in distance.

Momentum is key.

It's much steeper than the GoPro makes it out to be and those rocks are very loose in places.  I've only done the pass twice on a bike, once in the rain (but in fairly decent road condition) and it was much easier in the rain than dry and rocky.  It wasn't quite as rocky as it is now, but it was murder if you had to stop.

I'm watching her footage of Sani Pass now, doesn't appear to have any spare fuel with her, how long is Sani Pass and how long does it typically take to traverse?

@big oil

It is 8km from border to border and about 30km from the nearest town.

First time we did it took around 2 hours and I was heavy tired from assisting to pick up bikes.
Second time took 8 or 18 minutes or something like that.

Depends highly on bike, rider skill and condition of pass.

Thanks, sounds like a great time!

There is a race every year called the Sani Stagger.

42.2km marathon, you start at the Hotel at the bottom, run the 21.1km to the top of the pass, turn around and run back down to the hotel.
2019 when I ran it the top 5 guys completed the up run in under 2 hours, and total time for the winner was 3h14m for the marathon.

I have not done comrades but the people that have done both say their bodies take a much harder beating on Sani.
I could not climb out of my car normally. Looked like I had some serious muscular problems.

My wife has completed many Comrades and attempted the Sani Stagger about three years ago. It was raining and she did not make the cut off time to the top. They had those mini bus taxis coming down and she got a lift in one of those. She said the smell in that taxi full of wet smelly runners was something else.

Naudes Nek is in my opinion the most stunning pass in the country and while it is currently in the worst condition I've ever seen it, it's not much of a challenge on a bike. Stunning ride though.

This is what the view from the nek looked like yesterday. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210401/cd56f82a12fdfc0f83969888a43ae39a.jpg)

Two years ago, when my wife and I went through (S to N) on a fully loaded S10 (part of a 2-week trip), it was a bit wet, and definitely a challenge to my mediocre skills!  :biggrin:

It is an entirely different beast when wet, especially on the tentkop/Maclear side of the escarpment.

Yip, needs differ.  I have come to realise that it is just a pain in the arse to try and do a long trip on a small bike.  A bigger bike with good suspension just make the trip much more enjoyable.
With a bigger bike you are less tired at the end of the day.  Although the opposite is true when you use a liter plus bike to do Sani or Bezuidenhoudts.

As said, needs differ.   It is more that ATTITUDE differ.  I went from the 800GS to the 300cc "commuter" with a 17" front.  The whole challenge was to go slower and enjoy the country more. (the faster you ride the less you see.  :pot: )  After 11 000km on basically the same terrain as with the 800 including Katberg and Devils Bowel included I will never go back to a big bike. Even did PE to CT in one stint (all tar) as I had to get back to the office.

Is going fast on a big bike nice? HELL YES!! when I went from the 1200 to the 800 I really missed the power and speed on smooth roads but enjoyed the 800 on more technical sections.  Because the downgrade to the 300 was with the PURPOSE to go slower and SEE more I enjoy it more than even the 800.

I love small bikes, but I ride a 650 class bike for that reason, being that a 250 gets a tad slow on long stretches of tar, which one inevitably encounter on your journeys.

Like you say, if the riding is around Lesotho only, small bike is the thing to have.

From previous videos it seem her main criteria was to get the smaller bike was cost and weight of the bike.  She has time to take it easy.

Where the bigger bikes shine is comfort. The added weight transfers less vibrations to your body and you enjoy the ride more. 
My lightweight bike can also do fast but I feel shaken at the end of a long day in the saddle.

Not so sure about that. Think it is SA to the top but they chose to put the SA border post at the bottom.

I  finally got round to watching that Sani vid of hers:

1 - I concur with her comment that it's not for beginners.
2 - She picks great lines
3 - I was stunned to see all the workas actually working on the road. Impressive.

Perhaps not such a good idea, but maybe I'm a pessimist.
She intends to stay there for a few days she said.
Let's see, and let's hope all goes well.

Dear Chicco,

I hope you are enjoying nice Easter holidays!

As I’m sitting here in the South African sun, writing this email, I am just thinking about what a good decision it has been to move to South Africa. This country is truly special. I’ve travelled to over 80 countries in the last 15 years, but somehow, I feel connected to South Africa. I think it’s a mix of the people, the culture, the stunning nature and the incredible motorcycling that can be done here.

For one thing, I will always remember South Africa as the place where I did the most difficult, challenging riding so far on this journey: conquering Sani Pass. I wrote a blog post about how it was like to ride this and my tips if you want to attempt such terrain on your motorcycle. You’ll find the link to the new blog below in this email!

Ride safe and speak soon!

Lots of love,

Noraly

That's nothing I'm interested in watching, I think I'll pass.  Especially if it's got a bunch of voodoo horseshit.

Yes, and some were hoping that she'd attract bikers to come ride SA, but probably not if she carries on making all our passes sound like Ertzberg.

watched an episode when she was in Afghanistan, she is consistent with her style. she has travelled more places than most people by bike in as more countries than most have even been to.  :thumleft: she definitely is selling SA well for us, I think her feedback on the last love potion episode with tell her to steer clear of that kind of stuff, unless of course her home following of dutchmen will now flock here en mass seeking the newly discovered love potion remedies and someone to bath and administer it to them. strange people them dutch.  :imaposer:

True, though we both know why she has such a large following.

I enjoyed the video on Sani, probably her breathing hard the most, I'm a depraved soul!

Each one of those pin drops is an episode, I watched them all over lockdown last year.

The Green Route
My first ever motorcycle trip was on a 2017 Royal Enfield Himalayan. With this rental motorbike, I traveled through the Himalayan mountains in India. In a mere three weeks, I made my way through Ladakh, Kashmir, Jammu and Himachal Pradesh. The route that I rode is indicated by the green line.

Total journey with nameless rental bike: 3,000 kilometers.

The Blue Route
After that amazing journey in the Himalayas, I decided to buy my own RE Himalayan in Delhi. The first leg of the journey with my beloved Basanti was from India to Malaysia and totalled some 11,000 kilometers.

From Kuala Lumpur, I shipped Basanti to Oman and continued from here to Dubai. With a boat, Basanti and I traveled to Bandar Abbas in Iran. From here, we explored Central Asia, Russia, the Caucasus and the Balkans until we reached The Netherlands.

Total journey with Basanti: 36,000 kilometers.

The Purple Route
Unfortunately, it meant the end of the road for Basanti in The Netherlands. Because of problems with her paperworks, I couldn’t ride her through the Americas (see the full explanation here). But, after two months of preparations, I got my brand-new Himalayan “Dhanno” all ready for this adventure.

I rode to Hoek van Holland from where I caught the ferry to the UK. Dhanno got dropped off at Heathrow Airport, from where she was loaded on the plane to Buenos Aires, Argentina! From Buenos Aires, I rode all the way to the Southern tip of South America, in Patagonia. There I made a 180 degree turn and continued my way up North towards Alaska.

Unfortunately, in March 2020, I was stopped in Peru due to the start of the pandemic and I had to fly back to The Netherlands.  It took 8 more months of difficult paperworks, frustration and money to get Dhanno onboard a cargo ship and bring her back to The Netherlands too. Leaving Dhanno in Peru was not an option, as you can only keep a foreign registered vehicle for a limited amount of time in a country without importing it.

Dhanno finally arrived back in The Netherlands in December 2020 - in a very rough shape. To get her riding again, I would have to invest time, money and effort again. So for now, she remains parked in storage…

Total journey with Dhanno: 20,000 kilometers

The Orange Route
After having to leave Dhanno behind in Peru, it didn’t take long before those boots were so itchy again that I bought another motorcycle to tour around until I can continue my Patagonia - Alaska journey. I bought a second-hand Honda CB500x from 2015 which I named ‘Ronin’ (find out why I chose this motorcycle here).

With Ronin I explored Iceland and Scandinavia - all countries I’d never been before! Unfortunately, at the end of summer 2020, new lockdowns and restrictions kept me and Ronin on Dutch soil. Ronin is currently parked somewhere safely inside, waiting for me to return to The Netherlands and continue riding the world together!

Total journey with Ronin: 12,500 kilometers

The Red Route
Unable to create videos in The Netherlands, I decided to relocate myself and moved to South Africa. I bought a second-hand Honda CRF250L from 2013 which I named ‘Savannah’. Starting in Johannesburg, I am currently exploring the whole of South Africa with Savannah.

Total journey with Savannah: 2,500 kilometers and counting…

A reality check...

These VLOGgers are 'professional travelers'.  No more shoestring budget 'sharing my journey for all to see' when you reached a certain amount of subscribers.  They are making a shitload of money.  One of my favourite ones is a sailing VLOG called SV Delos --- its estimated that they make USD15k per 15m episode.  they bring an episode out every week and have done more than 200 episodes.  make the sums

What I like:
It brings the adventure to us lounge room lizards - daring us to dream and maybe inspiring some
I like the certain amateurish angle to it - it can be very honest and unique
Some of the video with modern equipment is breathtaking
Brings unique 'personal' angle to watching it without the corporate marketing or touristy angle
it normally shares the everyday life part of the journey

What I dont like
It still has this 'fund my adventure' / sponsor my dreams / pay while I enjoy myself - patron angle.  Acting poor and desperate while making a lot of money.  Still begging although rich.
some VLOGs or episodes are just kak - self importance, opiniated, factually wrong, irritating
comes with a certain 'hero status' - a celebrity, 'people are so nice to me' gifting mindset.  i dont like it.  i get the sense that they use people in a sense.  always nice as long as its in their interest
if its girls and they are pretty - more popular and hero worshipped by a certain crowd. 
Comes with lots of freebies as companies send them free products and stuff - so dont expect an honest opinion always. 

So yes, mixed emotions --- I take it for what it is.  But it is certainly becoming an industry.  Not the 'Piet is travelling around the world and got a used rear tyre for free' times anymore

she has said in her first episodes in the sa season, she made alot of money in the mining industry and that is what has afforded her the opportunity to do this kind of travelling. I don't think her intention was or is ever to free load off the keyboard warriors dime and invite the crap that comes along with now you owe us something or now we own you kind of commentary.

I can see how she would have a huge following world wide and earn a decent amount of money - probably gained a good few new followers purely through this thread alone  :lol8:

She might even be paying her secret admirer, 2SD, a bit to fuel the fire and keep this thread bubbling  :pot:

the worst is those 2 fellas from long way back.....they dont do anything except riding.....for everything else they have an army of people

I think they are actually getting it right!

How cool is it to just ride your bike and not worry about anything else :deal:

I can understand that. 

Hopefully anyone with mediocre talent could've conquered what she's ridden in SA thus far, even on large adventure tourers.

This is the internet phenomenon, that someone this mediocre can garner so large a following.
Someone this mediocre?

Really?

What exactly is mediocre about travelling the world by bike, all by yourself, while still making time to film it and share it with the world?

If you feel she's not up to "your" standard, Dan, by all means just ignore her and move on with your life.  :thumleft:

I am a biker, and I judge anyone involved in biking by my own biker standards.

I have been up Sani, it's not that I have not, and describing it as the most difficult pass in SA.

You actually created your own equivalent of The Kardardasiens or even Georgie Shores here on the forum,   Maybe more 'crap sensation per minute' than all of them together.  Someone must waste more time on Dan and do an analysis of the 'response rate' of his comments.

During quarantine I built several bike models, read many books, and stripped so many of my bikes that I am now struggling to get them together.

But watching girlie riding videos I deem a waste of time. Surely you agree? O0

Go for it Doll, and have the local Sangoma braid you a snorkel for Savannah to keep the unholy water out of her!
Some clay rubbed on it will make it watertight as well as snake-repellant - but he may have another potion for sharks too, who knows...

But get riding again, I didn't click the last episode because clearly there's none of it in it...... and I won't be alone hence it affects your income!

It's probably how a "world trip" is in reality, she can spend years in SA and still not see half.

In a quirky way I'd say yes.

However I only watch her channel to hear her Dutch accent when she pronounces place names like Kaapschehoop & Baviaanskloof... then it comes out as "Khaap-She-Houp" and  "Bawijaaans-klouf"

Explains how she were busy with her masters, but did not return to netherlands but started with backpacking, then when money was finished she worked in Perth as a waiter and was happy with the money, then applied for work as Geologist assistant, got appointed as Geologist, got good pay and 6 months later decided she had enough money to retire, quit again and went backpacking again. Money lasted 2 years. etc etc

Explains how she were busy with her masters, but did not return to netherlands but started with backpacking, then when money was finished she worked in Perth as a waiter and was happy with the money, then applied for work as Geologist assistant, got appointed as Geologist, got good pay and 6 months later decided she had enough money to retire, quit again and went backpacking again. Money lasted 2 years. etc etc
Any Geologists here who retired after 6 months ?  :o

Sounds like a trustfund number.

I dont think so 2SD.. from what I understand some of those youtubers make some dosh

https://statsmash.com/calculator/itchy-boots-net-worth

431,000 x 14 ( in the roundest of numbers is 6 odd million and the channel generates cash while she sleeps. Literally. every click, every watch, every like and subscribe boosts add revenue.
20 k odd in the last 7 days while shes on holiday... not bad.... i could live with generating 20k a week while riding my bike..

The chicks 33 lots of time. The trick is to get the subscribers up. a HELL of a lot easier said than done.

If you go into the mining world with the right company you can make silly money. A classmate of mine started out on 4500USD a month tax free, that was with zero experience. Depending on the job and the company that can go up very fast. Guy I worked with in Canada was making around 125 000USD a year + stock options working for a junior gold miner, this was in 2014, he was 25 at the time.  Not quite retirement in 6 months but you can hoard quite a lot of cash if you want to.

as jy by ons aangestel word hier in die noordkaap as n geoloog gaan jou ctc so R90k per maand wees.
nat uit universiteit met n graad met 3 jaar professional in training opleiding addissioneel.

let net op, 2 jaar later was haar geld weer op, toe het sy weer n ander werk iewers gekry.

nee glad nie. Ek sal kyk of ek die interview later kan op sit.
Sy was redelik broke toe sy daar begin het.






toevallig het ek nog n youtube vid gekyk gister. Afhangend van watse veld jy is, en van waar jou advertensies is in jou video en en en maak jy tussen 5 en 10 duisend dollar per 1M views.

so as jy al 5 reekse het waar jy bike ry dan behoort die geld redelik te loop

Look, I watched a couple of her videos, and the "behind the scenes" one too.

She seems genuine, and enjoys her riding, iow, it seems to not be just a job for her.

So I am tentatively changing my opinion of her.

Some drones have tracking capability, some are better than others.  Skydio drones have a beacon a rider installs on their bike or themselves and the drone connects and follows the beacon.

While some models offer a follow-me function, her footage rather looks pre-programmed and not specifically following her. Even the small DJI Mini can do this as per the website:

A variety of creator templates are available in the DJI Fly app to help you create cinematic shots with just a tap. With QuickShot modes like Dronie, Circle, Helix, and Rocket, the Mavic Mini will execute an elaborate, pre-programmed set of moves while recording.

I imagine she launches the drone, rides a short distance and then lands it again. She does carry some impressive camera equipment and clearly knows how to use it.

He should be treating everyone differently.

Get up of his arse and greet her properly. Offer her something to drink and a packet of chips or droewors. Wees net beter.

Ronnie and Angie's G spot have similar attitudes and then they jump up and down because 'everyone is against them'

Does anyone know the road she took to Heidelberg?

Is that foreigner then actually experiencing our country, if he/she is treated differently?

That is what Ronnie's is, kak service, high prices. And a landmark......a big a puzzle to me as the success of the big Gs. :eek7:

Not going to be doing Ronnie's any favours,  but seriously doubt he gives a shit anyway.

I watched all of her SA vids this weekend. Really good if you ask me. So refreshing to see someone painting our country in such a positive light as opposed to people who never get off their couch but tell you it’s dangerous outside. She also does really well at memorizing local info and talking off the cuff about the places she travels through. Before watching I assumed it was just another girl getting attention for being a girl. I’ll be following as long as she’s riding

Wise man  :lol8:

I have been watching her travels since the start of her travels in India. She is an impressive lady and adversity never gets her down, she rolls with the punches and smiles all the while. A role model to young and old of how to conduct oneself, no entitlement in her at all, just a likeable person and good riding vids. Probably my favourite Media Personality, and my wife agrees  ;D

My thoughts about it:  There is actually very little about bikes in the videos.  We can relate due to the bikes, Others can relate due to the travel and experience part of it.  Very few due to the cooking....

Back to what she earns from the vids.

This guy explains it in a good way.
If she is somewhere between a vlogger and a car show then say she gets $6 per 1000 view or about $3.50 after youtube takes their cut.
Her vids have on average 300,000views. Thus $3.5 x 300 = $1,050 per vid.

With an average of 8 vids a month that comes to $8,400 per month or just under R120,000 per month.  Even if she does half of that it still sounds good.

very lucky or very smart? both. I think she is just doing what she loves and the income is just a side benefit of following your passion. lekker story, all we can hope for now is that 2SD gets his banners in place on the right road and his rusks are fresh. I wonder what her travel plans are, after CT? west coast? inland a bit, we all know how much there is to see and she does not have to go back to any base so its really just a free ride. freedom like we will never know!

Well, then that has to be somewhere OUTside SA, in NL maybe..... or she books a loooooong flight aboard a Hindenburg-type zeppelin around the world?
Maybe the Dunlop blip will come in handy for this!
Somebody better contact RedBull!
With a trials bike she could ride on top of it then, and perhaps airdrop per parachute...... the mind boggles  ;)

Not relocated just traveling a country large enough that she wont have COVID border issues.

I have a funny feeling she will be in SA for a LOOOONG time as she used the word 'relocate' (meaning long time - not forever) in her intro of this season.  There are still many months of gravel roads and things to see in this beautiful country of ours. The second option is to go over to NAM once SA is done and spend a few months there. 

She differ dramatically from other youtubers that now release video's of a year or two ago or maintain views with 'what I pack' bla bla bla.  She will stay here until there are another option. I think returning to Europe is out of the question for now.  My only gripe is that she actually do not cover some detail of the places like Madiba statue, the map at Aughalas etc. I think she would include it if she saw it.  At Ronnie's it was interesting that she did not even just walk into the shop as she was informed by the place existence.

She absolutely stay away from the media and followers. That way she can move whenever or wherever she want. Just think about it , with 700k followers she will be stopped in every town by some 'I know better where and how to ride' ouke. (Read the beginning of this thread.)

Pic 1
She was looking for chrashbars and bashplate.  As the 250 is not a huge seller in SA there are basically nothing available.  She also did not want to stay without a bike for 2 days so we could make a set.  the only option was the 250Rally crashbars.  In my books it looks like a real Indian bike due to the width.  She do not need a bashplate now as there is not much to damage.

this is actually something I can imagine being very tricky for the full-time adventurererers to manage. How deep to go down the rabbit hole.

There will always be something more to see, something you will miss. the more time you spend in an area the more you will realize that area has to offer. But spending 3 years in each country she visits will not work, and viewer numbers will probably go down as well as the novelty wears off, doesnt matter how interesting the country

I was wondering all the while if she was not so pretty how many of you okes would be watching the show :biggrin: anyway.

I watched a couple of episodes and i think she did pretty well with filming, editing and publishing all that video while on the road. But like many here said she rushed it in many places.
Looking at her speedo in some places in the Hel for example i cringed a little thinking please don't come off at that speed. But she looks like a good rider. Will leave me far behind.

Given the amount of research she does I doubt that she’s completely unaware. She has an international audience and presents to them those places they read about on the internet. Her story is also based on the premise that she rides alone and unsupported. If she hooked up with local groups she’ll never have a moments peace with guys like Chicco stalking her :deal:

PS: She’ll also have less time for the administrative burden of creating content for her channel which is her only source of income.

There is enough roads and interesting places to see to keep her occupied for 3 years. She needs to get a SA boyfriend to show her around....she missed so may interesting places already.

Any suggestion in a boyfriend? I wanted to suggest 2SD but not sure if his body will be able to handle her..... :imaposer:
If Dan "rides" like he rides his 701, he'll have Noraly itching to get her boots off!

On a slightly more serious note. I'm not a fan, and have till last night not watced any of her videos.

Last night, while searching for some T7 tutorials, I came across her Sani Pass Youtube video.

In 2009, after attending the Alfie Cox Dual Sport Festival, we travelled through Lesotho with Rieks and Anton Prins.

My wife pillioned with me up Sani on the 990S.

It was August, and she only walked the two iced up sections.

Not sure if Noraly's camera angles have an effect, but it sure looks very narrow in places, very rocky and very washed out. Her riding so close to the edge, had us shit scared.

I doubt if she went up Sani without a fall or two. Easy to edit that out.

I however take my hat off to her for reaching the top!

chopperpilot you are a negative person. eish

why would she edit it out? Drama sells, a proper fall on camera would have gotten her tons more viewers, hell, if she fell of the mountain somewhere her viewer numbers would have been through the roof.
re Sani: you cant compare it to your own ride, its not nearly in the same condition. We went up recently with the Land Rover, while I also did it previously, while still relatively inexperienced, with pillion and on 1200GS. Its not the same.

Not negative, only realistic.

I did end my reply with a positive comment about her riding skills. She traversed many a gnarly rut successfully.

I did not compare her ride with mine. Only stating that I have been there many years ago, and the road is different, difficult and dangerous now.

Did I perhaps step on a few perving WDs toes!

If she really was free to do as she likes, time would not be an issue. Unbelievably to some, she seems to be caught in a rat-race of her dream job. :biggrin:

If anything that you love becomes your job then it adds restrictions to what you can do. Sad but that is life.

I still think she is fairly free to choose and would not call it a rat race.  Maybe she decided to spend a certain time in SA because she wants to move on to something else or better in her books, maybe it is structured to her viewers at what she thinks they would want to see, who knows.

That is my assessment too. She cleverly chooses content that draws viewers and she gets to see the world on a bike in the process :thumleft:

If I could choose between riding for a living with some restrictions to where I ride while on camera and the rat race I’m in the choice would be easy. Unfortunately some of us have dependants and obligations without sufficient reserves to take the risk. Either way, nobody wants to hear me blabber while riding, I’d go bankrupt very quickly!

Another dynamic to keep in mind is, the Youtube algorithm promotes channels according to how active creators are. (Amongst other things).
So she is playing that angle as well, which is a self enforced discipline. For instance the "holiday" she took in Plett would theoretically have cost her possible income because the Youtube engine would penalise her for the extended period without new content.

Around 40K kms, dry grease I believe, the bike probably swam naked sometime, either with her or a previous owner.

The mind boggles Dan, she was in CT and she needed mechanical help!
This is where you are & what you do, so she could have ended up in your workshop!
But she didn't - so your advertising prowess sucks a bit, shape up on this please?
After Nam (merely a Visa-refresh) she will come back to CT to scale that mountain she said, so there's your golden opportunity to meet this golden-haired vixen and film it to prove to the drooling masses here that you 'helped' her!

Oh wait, 'film it'..... damn Dan, time to make a certain electronic purchase!  :lol8:

She followed the guys after they invited her, I’m certain she would not have if she knew about the ban. She has been very good about not flying her drone where she was aware that it is not permitted. Through all her travels she has always been very respectful of local laws and regulations

Have to bitch about her riding on the beach. And the two guys who showed her. Beach ban is in place for almost 20 years. And as I am on a roll here flying her drone in Cape Point National Park was not cool either. Everything for "the shot".

I must agree, she actually expressed regret for not being allowed to drone-film in Baviaans, which she complied with.

But to not film with drone in Cape Point reserve could have been too much to ask of her.......the beauty is stunning.

But the beach riding is a law broken, and ignorance is no excuse.

You are right. The two Muppets who showed her are to blame. Problem is that now almost 900000 followers think it's cool to come to South Africa, ride on the beach and fly your drone in National Parks. If you have a vlog you have responsibilities. I think I commented on the video, let's see if a disclaimer of sorts will be made.

To be fair, there is a clear 'no drone flying' signboard at Baviaans' eastern gate, was at Cape Point a few weeks back and can't say that I noticed any. Pieter Plakkies lead her astray on the beach and the fact that even i am tempted to go do it now says something, I dig the dynamism of how her plans changed,  it's awesome.

I enjoyed the part where he helped her get the bike unstuck in the beach and promptly dropped it. To make it worse, he couldn’t get it started again.

I don’t support the beach riding but did enjoy the spontaneity on the day.

Ek was lank betrokke by KZN wildlife en die hele beach ban het begin toe die vorige minister van Env affairs se seun deur a 4x4 op a strand raakgery is. Die beach ban maak sin waar daar skilpad eiers is maar op daai strande weet ek nie. Vandat beach ban in plek is het illegal visvang, perlemoen stropery, mossel stropery hand uit geruk, daar is ook nie meer mense wat die goed moet beheer nie. Parkeraad het nie meer geld nie.

Noraly has such a attitude of genuine wonder at this beach riding.

I was surprised, looking through the comments, to notice a TOTAL lack of even a mention that this is highly illegal with the real possibility of having your motorcycle confiscated.

I was wondering about that. The side she approached from seemed like a public road however the other side of the gate had a no access sign?

If a gravel road is a public road there will be a servitude through the farm so access to it should not be restricted. Go and have a look at the title deeds of your property that you live on. You will be unpleasantly surprised.

She answered the question very eloquently on FB:

In today’s episode I am entering Namaqualand To reach it, I was passing through countless farms, opening and closing countless gates again.

This is very common in South Africa and I am in fact not trespassing but just riding on public roads (okay the gate with the code the other day was maybe a different story, but in my defense, I was leaving not entering and on the other side there was no sign prohibiting me from following the road ).

Ek moes hoeka vanoggend 'n klomp bergfietsryers effe in die bek ruk.  :biggrin:
Ek dink ek is skuldig hieraan. Ons het laas Maandag daar oor gery van Waterval af. Daar het iemand met n rooi hemp in n land gestaan. Hoop nie dit was jy nie?

Where are all the critics of the riding on private property gang?

1.  She is not a South African and could not know the huge amount of noise about that.
2.  She is not a WD and could not know the hige amount of hit air driven noise about that.
3.  She is not from a third world and woul assume, correctly so, that of you expect entry to be restricted, you'd put up a sign to that effect.
4.  Who gives a shit, she is pretty with lovely blue eyes.
Some of them are probably from this site by the sound of it...

Jy alleen gery @Bliknêrs ?  Ek dink ek het jou spore daar by my hekke gesien.  Lyk my jy het gewik en geweeg oor moet jy deur die motorhek of oor die veegrid ry, toe gaan jy maar oor die veegrid.  Gelyk soos Heidi of Mitas bande.

Ek het nie 'n rooi hemp nie so wassie ekkie.

Maar ek is diep seergemaak dat jy nie gestop het nie.  @Scalpel het anderdag gestop en kom groet, toe kuier ons sommer langer as 'n uur.

@Dorsland Ek het mos te veel maniere om ongenooid op n plek aan te kom, maar lyk my ek is nou genooi so sal vlg keer daar stop.
Ek weet nie hoekom ek gedink het jy is voor GR. Ek het eers n bord by n hek gesien met n vae bekende sêding op, en daarna die Patriot bord by die opstal, toe besef ek waar ek is en dat die boer eers skiet en later vrae vra.
Maar ek onthou daai hek. Daar was n diep sand gat reg voor hom. Ek is op n manier daar deur sonder om neer te slaan, en toe ek opkyk is die grid reg voor my. Ek dink ek is agterstevoor daar oor.

Chris wat ek nog van ‘n boerbok moet leer het @Dorsland lankal vergeet. Ek kom op baie opstalle en plase, maar ek moet bieg. Dié is een van die netjieste opsette waarop ek al was. Van die hek wat per hand oppgemaak moet word tot die diere. Alles in top kondisie. Voorwaar ‘n voorbeeld vir baie.

1.  She is not a South African and could not know the huge amount of noise about that.
2.  She is not a WD and could not know the hige amount of hit air driven noise about that.
3.  She is not from a third world and woul assume, correctly so, that of you expect entry to be restricted, you'd put up a sign to that effect.
4.  Who gives a shit, she is pretty with lovely blue eyes.
She answered the question very eloquently on FB:

In today’s episode I am entering Namaqualand To reach it, I was passing through countless farms, opening and closing countless gates again.

This is very common in South Africa and I am in fact not trespassing but just riding on public roads (okay the gate with the code the other day was maybe a different story, but in my defense, I was leaving not entering and on the other side there was no sign prohibiting me from following the road ).

She did indeed.  In the Namaqualand epoisode she must have opened and closed a gazillion gates.   :lol8:

Tyd het ons begin inhaal toe klap ons reguit huis toe volgens GPS, ent op n pad toe is dit privaat plaas pad en gesluit. Om om te draai is n massive om pad en ons sal seker eers 10pm huis haal, ons 'breek' toe deur en ry verder, voel super skuldig op plaas pad maar ry.....en toe kom ons teen n baie groot sekuriteits hek aan met groot geel bord dat lewendige ammunisie daar getoets word! Ons was minder gemotiveerd om daar deur te breek en moes om draai. Dink ons was eers 3am daai volgende oggend weer tuis.

Say what you want about the quality of the riding and video footage but she has ridden further and in more remote places in South Africa than many keyboard riders on this forum - and on top of that is doing it alone which many wouldn’t even think about doing  :peepwall:

Because most on this forum wasted years on BMW's. :peepwall:

Respect to her for what she's done so far. Not so impressed however with the hype she created beforehand about the episode at the mine area. Still don't know what was so hectic about driving around with some security guys?  Maybe from her naive first world perspective and being a lady she experienced it differently.

Those security guys have probably not seen a female in months, then this Blonde blue eyed chick rides in on a bike, I bet they all thought they were getting lucky.

I must say on her behalf rather brave, Riding into some sort of mine, filled with big ass men only, I think most women would be worried, Personally I didnt know about the illegal diamond mining up on that side of the world, so I got educated, but that kind of thing happens here in GP as well, just with old gold mines

How do you know they did, or didn't?  ;)

She comes from a gunfree society where even visible police does not wear them, so a few okes with shotguns and pistols in an armoured vehicle has to impress - or shock her.

I watched the episode around the diamond security, and I can see, as Burp points out, how her 1st world senses will get fried by this environment.

I can also see why she would have a big following, she manages to portray an air of innocence and of genuine wonder at what she encounters.

I remain an internet sceptic, and always wonder about these videos, designed around making money.

I thought it strange that she could rock up at the guarded main gate of a large mining company's private security firm, and simply be taken in and shown around. But once again, this is SA, where things work

differently, and these men possibly welcomed this break from a monotonous daily routine to show her around. Have these security guys not heard of the Trojan horse? :pot:

Yes well said and I agree with you    :thumleft: :thumleft:
 
I also thought these men were probably so pleased to see a woman there and she is knowledgeable too as a geologist and so interested in what they do. I’m sure she checked with the men at the braai that night what she can post and what not. Besides all her other wonderful qualities one can trust her. These men trusted her to not betray their security secrets and she honoured that.  :thumleft:

There was a lot that she saw that she did not post ( if she filmed it at all)

She also talks to lots of other people on her travels that she does not film. She respects their privacy.

I love her intelligence and curiosity and her lust for riding and people and mines and even her breakfasts  :imaposer:.

she also has that ability to connect with all kinds of people ( in that sense she reminded me of Ted Simons ( remember when Ted was the only one that noticed that Cloudgazer shaved his beard after having only met him once before ) lol

Noraly has that same magical quality.

And yes for the men, she certainly is a looker too , haha that must be a real bonus for them too.  :ricky:

Wonder not, I've done the same a couple of time, lacking boobs & blonde hair  :P
One was at a phosphate mine where I asked to go to Reception, and was let in without further ado. My overseas friends in the car were astonished at the simplicity of this process. It got better still, at reception we asked for some sock samples because of a hobby, and phosphate-rock was missing. The receptionist hollered in the radio and 5 min's later a geologist rocks up with a BAKKIE_FULL of rocks, not kidding!  :lol8: We had a nice informal chat, and my friends still remember this today!
I also talked myself (in my campervan!) into a diamond concession at Koekenaap and stayed there for 3 days, again hardly any questions asked! I was waiting for friends to arrive from CT in a diamond diving boat but they broke down along the way, hence me waiting 3 days there and playing the tourist everywhere, and I mean absolutely everywhere! Noone asked a question, and I left eventually - without having been searched or asked a single question!  ???  So much for diamond territory security, basic politeness gets you in!  :thumleft:

Remember she is a geologist and she has worked at mines all over the world for years so this was her profession before becoming a professional traveler.

I have just glanced through the episode, haven't really watched it. But ja, clickbait. Also, likely a small diamond operation if she could get access that easy, maybe one of the ex debeers or transhex operations. The office complex with the trees look like Baken mine. The area they "patrolled" would be outside the active mining license. No way you get access to a diamond mine that easy and if you take a cellphone into the mine, you're leaving it there. Never mind a camera. The serious players in the diamond game don't mess around with security.

Still cool footage.

Your 100% right Kortbroek. It must be Baken. A friend and his partners had the consession to work the old tailings there. They left when being shot at and equipment being sabotaged got too much. :(

Always some interesting facts about some places and areas.

Respect for her for doing it solo and her filming is excellent!

I admire her for appreciating even the smallest flower/ animal and all the great sceneries! And of course her laugh...

I think her videos are great for the overseas market which is her audience but if you really want to see and learn about the real SA watch the latest series of Voetspore, much better info on history and out of the way places I knew very little about. And they also do mostly back roads. Unfortunately for them they are not blonde or female and have much less followers.

It was an OK video, no wonders at her getting shown around by security. They should have their contract reviewed for allowing it, and allowing her into an unsupported digging though...  >:D
Getting through Mine security is an art form, and sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. A couple weeks ago I caused a bit of an issue by walking into the mine managers office in the secure area of the mine and asking him to please sign the paperwork that would allow me onto the mine. Another colleague with all the paperwork didn't get through security for 3 days. There are always loopholes and always obstacles. If you get the right person, you will get in for a tour, and if not, you won't.

To her, illegal miners and armed guards with plenty big guns and armoured vehicles is a big thing.  Most of her followers would agree.  We South Africans think "ja wat, illegal miners and armed security, so what?" show us some riding through the Richtersveld instead.   >:D

I think it  shows different perspective and enjoy both.

But new Voetspore series is exceptionally good IMO, actually never bothered much to watch their old stuff. But each ep is on YouTube for only a short time and then you will have to pay on their website. Itchy boots stays on YouTube

I struggle to get friends to also watch Voetspore SA2. The perceptions there is of this show wont be easily changed.

Nice article on Noraly depicting the reality of bike travel life

Adventure biker 'Itchy Boots' tours SA, bringing her legions of fans along for the ride
Dutchwoman Noraly Schoenmaker has spent years travelling the world solo on a motorbike, amassing a huge social-media following along the way

https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/lifestyle/travel/2021-05-30-adventure-biker-itchy-boots-tours-sa-bringing-her-legions-of-fans-along-for-the-ride/

I've ridden a motorbike with Noraly Schoenmaker from India to the Netherlands and from Patagonia to Peru. But the other day I met her for the first time in one of the less salubrious southern suburbs of Cape Town.

Schoenmaker is the seemingly unstoppable bundle of energy behind the Itchy Boots channel on YouTube, but the Covid-19 pandemic threw up an insuperable obstacle when it interrupted her motorcycle journey from the southern tip of South America to Alaska.

Forced to abandon her Royal Enfield Himalayan touring motorcycle in Peru, she boarded an evacuation flight to the Netherlands and cooled her heels in northern Europe for a year before deciding to scratch the travel itch once more by touring SA.

Since late February she's been posting videos from Gauteng, Limpopo, the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, and, after a break in Plettenberg Bay, she made it to Cape Town in late April.

I had one of those double-take moments when a rider and a bike that looked an awful lot like Schoenmaker and the Honda she has dubbed "Savannah" pulled up outside the Southfield shop where accessories were being fitted to my own motorcycle.

Then I spent an hour chatting over coffee with a woman I'd never met but who has been a global travelling companion for me and 745,000 other subscribers since she set off from Delhi in December 2018.

During her travels, Schoenmaker has chalked up more than 100-million YouTube views and gained hundreds of thousands of fans.

If they're like me, they're as impressed by the 33-year-old's optimism and fearlessness as they are by her motorcycling exploits. Nothing seems to disturb her equilibrium, not even breaking down in a remote part of Iran or being viciously stigmatised in the Peruvian town where she was suspected of having introduced Covid-19.

An International Women's Day post on Instagram from the Blyde River Canyon summed up Schoenmaker's approach. In it, she says: "I don't fear the unknown. I choose not to live my life in fear. It is by letting go of fear that you can truly be free.

"I've lived, worked and travelled solo in more than 80 countries by now over the past 15 years. I am an experienced traveller and am anything but naive. Still, I'm often being referred to as a 'little blonde girl' who needs to be very careful and constantly warned for all the dangers out there, instead of as the fierce, experienced woman I know I am.

"If I'd listened to every person that patronised me and told me I couldn't or shouldn't do something because I'm a woman, I wouldn't have seen or experienced anything other than the place where I grew up. We all die. But not everyone really lives."

When I greeted her, though, I sensed an initial reserve, and it emerged from our conversation that her popularity has produced a crop of stalkers she works hard to avoid.

Indeed, the video showing her pulling up in Southfield appeared on YouTube more than a month after the event, by which time she was probably already in Namibia, well out of range of anyone who might want to track her down at her Constantia Airbnb.

Even though she's moved on, the wonder of YouTube means you can travel vicariously with her through what she told me was a "paradise for adventure riders".

At that point she hadn't even seen the wonders of the Cederberg, but she had ridden to the Lesotho border post at the top of Sani Pass and spent a night in Die Hel.

While international travel remains largely out of reach, Itchy Boots will rekindle your enthusiasm for the delights on our own doorstep.

If you get the right person, you will get in for a tour, and if not, you won't.

I have often told my boss whenever we have our annual key-performance value drivers or target setting meetings that I would have ten times more successful had I been female, blonde, with blue eyes etc.

It is literally that simple. I see this preferential treatment towards pretty women in the workplace every single day, especially where there are recognition at stake like trips overseas to be won. Never have I seen performance punishment dished out to a pretty girl.

At my previous townhouse I had to write several e-mails & requests to put up a tank during 2017's drought. This went through house checks by the trustees and specifications were given as to which colour it should be, the maximum height so that it's not visible over the wall and how I had to install it. I sold the house last year to a young, very pretty dentist. Over three years, my applications to get a dog, build an outside braai and to extend electric fencing were all turned down or I simply said fuck it due to the red tape.

Within one week, this lady had her dog in the yard, had the outside gate electrified on visible motors, had the vibracrete walls at the back extended and she planted a tree on common property.

If Noraly was a man, she might have been shot at before reaching security.  :deal:

Two things in her videos bother me:
1. Her videos are over sharpened and the contrast is way off (I assume she does this to make her so called pretty blue eyes even bluer).
2. Does the fact that her eyebrows are uneven/non-symmetrical not bother anyone else?! Besides being coloured in weirdly.

I've discovered her videos when her stint in SA started. It was entertaining in the beninging*, but that is kind of wearing off now. I've continued watching because I'm interested in the different places in SA, but won't continue watching once she leaves Namibia. There are better shows to watch, e.g. Voetspore.

P.S. It is not "literally called Die Hel", it is "literally called Gamkaskloof". Die Hel was a nickname given due to the extreme heat in summers, not because of the hardships the people experienced there. It irks me when people get their facts wrong.

Actually not. The Hell calling started when some school inspector drove in there on the newly built road and said apon arriving in the kloof that it was a "Helse" pad to drive in. The Hell(se)pad became Die Hel.
Infact Gamkaskloof is on avarage 3 degrees cooler than Oudtshoorn.
The people living in the kloof prever the name Gamkaskloof to the Hel.

Never really noticed the over sharpness and contrast.  I suppose it depends on the device screen quality you watch it on.  Mine is a pretty old laptop.
Also didn't notice her eyebrows.  If they are uneven, I cannot see that bother me much.  It is perfectly in the who cares category.
Many people refer to Gamkaskloof as Die Hel.  Just as they do Hot-as-hel instead of Hotazel, or Duiwelskloof instead of Duivelskloof, or Fanie's Island instead of Farnes Island.  Its not a biggie.

die hele wereld noem die plek "die Hel", ek is seker almal besef dit het 'n figuurlike betekenis

Is jy seker?
Ek was daar 2X keer met n GPS, en op daai toere het 3 (DRIE!) verskillende navigasie units simultaan uitgebom, letterlik binne meters van mekaar - soos in opgegee, erratic screen leaving the unit non-functional, they had to be hard-reset!
Ek is glad nie bygelowig nie maar almal kan hul seker die 'helse' grappies voorstel wat gevolg het  :P

Burp jy is duidelik 'n beter mens as ek as jy 'n GPS nodig het om in die hel uit te kom  ;)

Die Hel was a nickname given due to the extreme heat in summers,

Actually not. The Hell calling started when some school inspector drove in there on the newly built road and said apon arriving in the kloof that it was a "Helse" pad to drive in. The Hell(se)pad became Die Hel.
Infact Gamkaskloof is on avarage 3 degrees cooler than Oudtshoorn.
The people living in the kloof prever the name Gamkaskloof to the Hel.

There is also a story that it was named Die Hel after an animal inspector described his experience as "hell" while entering via Die Leer.

Two things in her videos bother me:
1. Her videos are over sharpened and the contrast is way off (I assume she does this to make her so called pretty blue eyes even bluer).
2. Does the fact that her eyebrows are uneven/non-symmetrical not bother anyone else?! Besides being coloured in weirdly.

I've discovered her videos when her stint in SA started. It was entertaining in the beninging*, but that is kind of wearing off now. I've continued watching because I'm interested in the different places in SA, but won't continue watching once she leaves Namibia. There are better shows to watch, e.g. Voetspore.

P.S. It is not "literally called Die Hel", it is "literally called Gamkaskloof". Die Hel was a nickname given due to the extreme heat in summers, not because of the hardships the people experienced there. It irks me when people get their facts wrong.

*misspelled on purpose
Yeah she triggers something in me too, but in a more pleasant way. :biggrin:

1c / click is closer. I did quite a bit of home work on starting a channel. It's just not worth the trouble for the little money made.

Hierdie is 'n funny gesprek...

As ek die plek die hel noem dan sê ek dit mos letterlik (of dit nou noemnaam is of nie).

"Hulle noem die plek die hel"
"Wow, hulle noem daai plek die hel, letterlik"

Ek kan dink vir 'n buitelander is dit vir haar 'n vreemde naam en sal sy dit aan al haar mense wou oorvertel.

it was named Die Hel after an animal inspector described his experience as "hell" while entering via Die Leer.

'Die Leer' is probably the other end - dead end - of the road when driving into Gamkaskloof, I'm taking a guess here.
Does anyone know if that is rideable with a plastic without having to be Tony Bou?

If you don’t like or agree what or how she is leading her life. That’s your issue, not hers. What’s the point in bitching about it. Unsubscribe and don’t watch any of her videos and don’t follow the content on this thread.

The money she make.
Yes it is a lot but have anyone ever did the maths on the actual cost of a trip like hers. My guess is about R40 000.00 plus per month just on riding, sleeping and eating. Mostly because she decided to go the Guesthouse route.  I've been planning a long (2 year) trip through South Africa to visit all my customers.  It will be 90% camping (to keep cost low) and on an average 300km day will cost at least R28 000.00 per month for Fuel (R300), Campsite (R200), food (R200) and then extras like insurance, cellphone  bla bla bla.  Medical aid alone is around R1 200 per month.  And please do not tell me it can be done this cheap and that cheap.  I have tried it over many long distance trips.

That slight overbite which makes her accentuate her words is rather devastating, makes her seem truly fascinated and excited by the smallest of things. I enjoy how she absorbs local nuances like use of South Africanisms in her speech, it's cute and clever. The detractors here are probably just jealous old ballies who are under the pump from the wife to do chores instead of going riding and potentially bumping into this bundle of joy, they can only dream :P
I wish her and her wallet well, with or without Die Hel, she is a brave gal.

it was named Die Hel after an animal inspector described his experience as "hell" while entering via Die Leer.
'Die Leer' is probably the other end - dead end - of the road when driving into Gamkaskloof, I'm taking a guess here.
Does anyone know if that is rideable with a plastic without having to be Tony Bou?

Asked on another thread.  My take is that it might be ridable but you are never going to get access to ride it.





IT IS NOT RIDEABLE....!!!

If Noraly was a man, she might have been shot at before reaching security.  :deal:


If Noraly was a man none of us would be watching the channel and this thread would not exist  :laughing4:

One should never negate gender in any production - but simply acknowledge it for what it is.
I don't think that her channel is successful just because she is female.

A successful youtube channel has 3x ingredients:
1. subject matter
2. quality of production
3. presenter personality

Thanks to WD I watch Vicegrip Garage, presented by a man. But he is quirky, his subject matter interests me (and my family) and the quality is good.

There is another girl - onherbike - who recently travelled through South Africa on a F800GS, which did not make the grade, and she is female.

The fact that a girl travels the world alone does not do the trick, but Noraly's subject matter, unique way of presenting and good quality production skills makes it worth watching.

I agree.
I tried Onherbike & also Got2Go.
I couldn't make it through a full episode on either channel although I tried.
I also tried that blonde Australian girl's channel, can't remember what it's called & gave up on that too.
There's also a kiwi girl on a Suzuki Savage touring the States . She managed one episode.

So for me, definitely not about the gender of the presenter .

Herein lies the difference between what different people want out of these videos. To me, all motorcycle related stuff is about the bike, and much less about the rider.

The roads that Noraly travels on is ordinary roads used by motorists too, so nothing special there. No real bike skills to watch at all either.

What is left? The scenery she travels through, and her own presentation, which admittedly is good.

I have watched a few of her videos, but for now at least, I am done with Noraly. :biggrin:

What other roads are there?  I mean, yes, many of the routes she used is open to other motorists, but I would hardly call many of them "ordinary roads".  Perhaps you should watch more episodes Danie.

She was feeling very venerable in that river bed. Her comment when the tracks were not clearly defined ie with a pole, she said where do they want me to ride (not verbatim) . That comment exposed her nanny state European background.  No boundaries to containe the anxiety.  I just want to get lost in the vastness experience the freedom.

Her videos made me realize I live in a bubble... in my own country!!

probably the most honest post to date, reading all the posts you get a feeling that most of the guys are feeling a little emasculated .

Don't try and sound all clever by using big words we don't understand....... :ricky:


Danie, if I may translate what Alphadog attempted to articulate (rather eloquently I dare say) is that the lady with the itchy boots has bigger balls than most of the esteemed members of the Wilddog fraternity :deal:
[/quote]

Yes LK , but I think it is it is more than that, she proves you don't need balls  :peepwall: and perhaps some feel threatened by that  >:D

She is just riding around the world on her motorcycle and loving it, it is not easy but she does it ( what is that famous quote? )

Yet some men want to sexualise her.

And now I am not talking about eg Chicco's crush of her, that is endearing.  :biggrin:

I am talking about claiming that it is her good looks that got her degree, her bike/s, her courage and her attitude, it is ones that say her looks is the only reason people watch her videos, the ones who say that she needs the money from the videos to help fund her trips ( not true). It is about criticising her for petty things and for being a "pretty thing " nstead of admiring her obvious talents and skills beyond her looks. instead of just admitting that her videos are entertaining and interesting.

She is just riding around the world on her motorcycle and loving it, it is not easy but she does it, and she does it well.  :thumleft:

Theodore Roosevelt's (slightly adapted) quote :

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong woman stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the woman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

who spends herself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Women were in the arena??

Probably not the original coliseum, I assume. :biggrin:

Look, women need avery bit of help to climb the ladder of "equality" to men, right including forcing gender-change men competing in women's sport.

Noraly is cute, she does get around a lot, and she has a very clever choice of transport, and she is quite watchable.

I just don't like the toughest passes she tackles, and the unrideable sinkplaat paaie, I feel emasculated by that sort of Mad Max madness.

We went in April 2017. Was good weather wise. Late summer or spring are good times. Winter can get kak cold at night if you are camping.

Not in June holidays, then most of SA is there. pulling huge tonnages of offroad trailers and campers.

Winter is tourist season. I used to go in December when it is too hot for Ze Germans. Make a plan to go, it is really a vast and special place.

Desember is not so hot if you dress right. One Desember trip was never more than 35. Airflow jacket and pants did the trick.

You stand in awe of what she tells you. This is the problem with the internet, and every fool having an opinion on how difficult/complicated/hard/ etc. everything is.

"Hard enduro" to get to Ai-Ais.

Indeed.  I stand in awe at what she tells me and shows me.  I am impressed.

Oh, by the way, it wasn't "hard enduro" to get to Ai-Ais.  Better watch that segment again (with concentration), but I agree that even the part she described as hard enduro would not be for many a reasonably off road.  To me, I watch the video, listen to what she tells me and try to not split hairs on the sematics of it all.

Most people don't even know what "hard enduro" is.  Not sure if she even knows.  Even if you split the words saying it was enduro like but hard then the terrain was not like that.  It was not even "light enduro".

But so what if she overexaggerate her expression of the terrain.  I am sure people can make up their own minds when watching the videos.

PS  Set her youtube video speed to 1.5x then the riding is more impressive.  ;)

:sip: I think she is amazing, and knows how to ride a bike. I would like to see, 60 persent of the WD's to do that Richtersveld roads. Her presentation is spot on.

Herein lies the difference between what different people want out of these videos. To me, all motorcycle related stuff is about the bike, and much less about the rider.

The roads that Noraly travels on is ordinary roads used by motorists too, so nothing special there. No real bike skills to watch at all either.

What is left? The scenery she travels through, and her own presentation, which admittedly is good.

I have watched a few of her videos, but for now at least, I am done with Noraly[/b]. :biggrin:

I'm enjoying Noraly's latest, she is a very good vlogger (GAH, horrible word) and is making SA look like a friendly and relatively easy place to travel in, even with all the Covid crap going on.

But I am surprised at the negativity.  Have you seen where she's been?  How many people could reel off a list of countries like she can?  I met several WDs on our last trip at the Oasis who said they'd love to get to Namibia.  It's only a day's ride from there, FFS!

She doesn't always get it right - she missed some good stuff going on her trip so far, but then I haven't (yet) ridden Die Hel despite having done the Swartberg pass.  And putting together those videos must take a huge amount of effort - even doing a simple ride report takes bloody hours.

She's doing great, and making your amazing neck of the woods, and the roads you have look so spectacular.

And I don't blame her for wanting to ride alone - Kinga's 'hook up' videos are a bit shit and everyone rides like c*nts.
