Polish up that helmet of yours, Honda Quest 2021 will be happening.

Minimum, 3 qualifying Bootcamp events to meet riders and see their riding abilities.

One each in Gauteng, Eastern Cape and of course, the home of Adventure riding; the Western Cape

Anyone can enter, you just need a current bike licence, a will to go on the trip of a lifetime and some off-road skills (You don't have to be a riding god, much of the skills you will need will be learnt along the way if you're a little out of your depth).

Dates and details will follow.

Thanks Kamanya:

To be clear - We will still have the final bootcamp where we will choose the finalists. We have however identified the need for pre-qualification days where you can join us to show us your skill as a rider. If you impress the staff you will get an invite for the final bootcamp that will be held at Kaleo in the Koue Bokkeveld.

Fantastic news,  For me this is a true adventure event, especially for people that like performing in competitive group events where it's not about the individual, but rather the team effort.  I saw how much someone like @Minxy grew through an event like this and I have a lot of respect for anyone that takes part in it - they all finish as winners.  Personally I would never enter  but I certainly enjoy watching and following the Quest event. @Hardy de Kock , hierdie ding kan nog mooi groei  ;)


@Kamanya - maybe you should cross the western cape border and see what the rest of SA has to offer before claiming that title.  Like @Xpat said many times before, you are actually the most limited province ito adventure riding although being the most active in terms of actual offroad adventure riding.

Have always maintained that Natal has more adventure per kilometer than any other province. Multiply this by ten when wet.

Thanks Johan - appreciate the comment.

ITO the Cape being our choice - Kaleo offers us everything we need for the final boot camp, and the rest of the WC and NC offers the exact challenges and camps we are looking for. We also have a 62% representation out of the WC when it comes to the applications.Most importantly for me, we have never had any crime, corruption issues on any trip in the WC or Northern Cape.
I have traveled this country extensively and I have to admit that you guys are right - We are truly blessed to live in a country where we have adventure trails within a few miles from our homes, no matter where in the country we live.
You can't blame Kamanya for loving his homeground O0

I did'nt enter last year because it clashed with a trip I was planning in Croatia, then covid hit and that got cancelled.. Ill be entering this year for sure.

Being part of a Honda / Specialised adventure event is something to knuckle down for.

Looking forward to submitting an entry.

For someone out there this is the start of a life changing experience, for others maybe a future date with a surgeon....  :pot:

"Polish up that helmet of yours, Honda Quest 2021 will be happening.

Minimum, 3 qualifying Bootcamp events to meet riders and see their riding abilities.

One each in Gauteng, Eastern Cape and of course, the home of Adventure riding; the Western Cape

Anyone can enter, you just need a current bike licence, a will to go on the trip of a lifetime and some off-road skills (You don't have to be a riding god, much of the skills you will need will be learnt along the way if you're a little out of your depth)."


Thanks Kamanya:

To be clear - We will still have the final bootcamp where we will choose the finalists. We have however identified the need for pre-qualification days where you can join us to show us your skill as a rider. If you impress the staff you will get an invite for the final bootcamp that will be held at Kaleo in the Koue Bokkeveld.

Ry jy jou eie bike met qualification en is skill nou een van die beoordelingspunte

It will be one of the most awesome adventures of your life.

Hi All

Western Cape Pre-Qualifiers to be held at Kaleo Guest Farm on July31st.
It will be a very low key affair, where a panel will watch you ride a short trail with your own bike, after which we will get your info and if you impressed the panel, we will invite you to boot camp later in August. You will be notified of our interest via email. .
It will probably turn into a bring and braai afterwards.
Take note that Kaleo is in the Koue Bokkeveld and that it probably will be very cold.

Working on the other locations and will confirm in due course.

Cheers

The dates for Quest 2021 have been finalised. Here is a breakdown of the application and selection process.

19 July

Entries open for Quest 2021. Visit the Quest website at https://quest-trueadventure.com (https://quest-trueadventure.com) to complete the application form.

31 July - 7 August

Pre-qualifying events will be held across the country. These events are opportunities for you to introduce yourself to the selection panel and to showcase your riding skills with your own bike. These events are not compulsory for entering, but might improve your chances of being selected as semi-finalist. Keep an eye on Honda Adventure Motorcycles Facebook page for more details about these events. Venues for the FS, GP and EC pre-qualifiers will be announced soon, with the WC event being held on 31 July at Kaleo Guest Farm.

24 August - 26 August

From the entries received, a number of semi-finalists are chosen to attend a 3-day Boot Camp at Kaleo Guest Farm in the Western Cape. You will be subjected to a range of tests - from riding to general knowledge and everything related to adventure motorcycling. The finalists, who will be participating in the main Quest event, will be chosen from this group.

22 September - 1 October

14 people compete in a 10-day event and stand the chance to win the Honda Africa Twin on which they compete. The start and end point is at Kaleo Guest Farm in the Western Cape, with the rest of the route being revealed to contestants on a daily basis.

Honda has just asked us to postpone Quest with at least a month. Due to what is happening in the country at the moment, it is fully understandable.
New dates are being worked on and will be posted soon.

I am unable to make the dates for the qualifier events or the bootcamp at this stage so not worth entering. If bootcamp is also postponed that would be great... then I can try my luck  :peepwall:

Is it possible to enter without doing a pre-qualifier? And where do you enter? Website doesn't allow entries yet....

Pre Qualifiers is an opportunity for you to show the panel who you are and what you have to offer, before the online entries start. You still have to apply online though.

Don't be so hard on yourself man!  :laughing4:

Ja, hy sal. Ons moes gister en vandag eers die laaste logistiek vasmaak. Vannaand antwoord ek die e-mails met reëlings. 

Sien uit daarna om almal daar te sien!

a Big thank you to all the riders that attended the pre-qualifier at Kaleo on Saturday. The weather played along and the crew really enjoyed this group of riders.
The skill level was much higher than expected and it was good to put a face to the names.
I can't wait for the call to entry campaign to start.
To those who asked for feedback - please contact Jaco and he will make sure you get a reply.

Thanks again

So I went out to Kaleo on Saturday.....

Brilliant day, beautiful surroundings with anticipation mixed into the extremely chilled air - there were still patches of snow high in the mountains.

The Quest hopefuls - what an awesome group of people, all with a passion for riding bike, and with that, I felt at home immediately.
I can honestly say with hindsight, there was not one there that I would not go on a ride with.

Met  a lot of new people, some that I have chatted with on WD but never met like @JacoM.  (The M Stands for Maniac - he is so at home on the big HP.), some of the guys from the rally racing circuit was there -  awesome to bump into Martin Lourens, Jonathan Sinclair etc.


As per normal, the organization was top notch - allaying the pre race jitters that most felt on the morning.
The instructions were very clear - this is not a race test, this is a bike control test in a natural environment likely to be experienced on the quest.
The route in terms of technicality was what I would imagine a good test of what you would likely expect on the quest, giving one an idea if it is suited to you.

The judging, and one can imagine with the diverse skill levels involved how difficult it is, was focused on skills that you would need on the quest.

Without giving much away, it is not if you are better rally rider than BamBam Barreda or neighbour Koos, it is much more.

If you have the passion for the ride, try and get in - it promises to be a motorbike life changing event.

Thanks @Beserker for the kind words - Jy oordryf defnitief.. ;D
Was goed om te ontmoet en ook al die nuwe mense te gesels. - sal graag 'n trip saam wil doen en manne (en dame) beter leer ken. ! ;)
Het iemand dalk foto's geneem wat ons kan share? Ek het bitter lanklaas 'n foto van my HP gesien  ;D
Die tyd het bietjie uitgeloop vir my Saterdag, maar wou graag voel hoe die AT loop  - hoop daar is geleentheid weer later.
Groete aan almal

We rode from Cape Town just before the sun came up. I had been on a ride through Ceres the pervious weekend so I knew that there was a nip in the air, so I checked the weather report and it said 19 degrees.. bakgat, ill leave in the cold but it will warm up, or so I thought. There was a lot of thick fog on the way there making the temp plummet so numb fingers was the order of the day.

I usually go up to Kaleo with the Miss as she loves the place and the people , but due to an unexpected event she stayed behind and a boys weekend was on the cards. Kaleo will not let you book a place for just the Sat night, but if you wait until Friday before booking, and if they have space available, they will let you stay for one night,

Arriving at just before 10am it was evident that Specialised Adventures and Honda were on the ball with everything already setup, within minutes we were all sorted and riding off to find out what awaits us.

Kaleo offers some really nice technical riding , more suited to a smaller bike but so much fun on the big bikes as well.. After 2 loops of the track setout for us, it was time to take a break from the instructors with score sheets & time for a kuir, braai and kak praat. With so many awesome okes all with the same passion in one place it made for a fantastic afternoon of checking out bikes and swapping stories from our last adventure.

Most of the guys had long roads home so departures were the order of the day except for a few of us who stayed the night.. the remainder of the afternoon was spent prepping a braai and riding some trails..

Big thanks to Honda and Specialised Adventures for organising and all the effort made to give adventure riding a bigger footprint in SA.

Nothing like a sunset, beer and a braai to end a day of riding

As far as I know the government has asked Honda-SA to postpone it with around two months because of covid.

Thanks Pieter
Almost true - The whole automotive industry has been asked to avoid possible spreader situations like launches etc. - Not just Honda.
From a Honda PR point of view it would be risky to host an event and end up with a situation where people get infected.
It will be worth the wait though - and we will give updates as we get them.
