Title: Eastern Cape Quicky
Post by: Vis Arend on December 28, 2010, 08:37:04 am
To end a wonderfull Xmas weekend we (my wife and I) decided to, on Monday the 27 Dec, do a 340 km roundabout trip from King William's Town to Coombs, backroads to Port Alfred, a sort tar road over the Fishriver and then again backroads all the way back to King.

Caught up with these guys in Port Alfred.  The KTM at the back is a beauty.  (One day, one day when I'm big)

Some vid clips, it's the first time I'm loading vid clips, will see what comes out.

Almost when for a mud bath, but the Mitas helped me out.
