Hi,

Also newbie to this tracking "goed"

Drives me insane, What is the solution ?

I am currently planning a trip from Cape Town, Franschoek Pass, Villiersdorp, Robertson, Montagu, Ladismith, Calitzdorp, Kamkaskloof, Die Hel, back to Gamkaskloof over to Prince Albert, Lainsburg, Touws Rivier and Cape Town.

Connecting all of these with gravel Roads in between.

I have very little knowledge of our gravel roads and need to plan it properly not to get lost.

Between Google Earth ( checking if it is an gravel road by zooming ) My Maps ( this connect to your gmail account and you will always have it on any phone, tablet or Ipad ) and then working out distances with Google Maps.

Now this is three programs already and you cannot use one to actually navigate you from point to point and then home. Google maps also limits the amount of points you can use and at this point all of them refuse to except moving the route and allowing me to go through the Gamkaskloof ( R328) to Prince Albert. F@*^%K !!!!

My questing, are there maps ( Software ) available where you can plan your trip by connecting Towns with all our gravel roads, once done and you have a route to send to a GPS, load the bike and of you go ?

All this is very frustrating.

Hi,

Some help please, looking for an Kawasaki KLE 500 Rectifier.
When I bought my KLE, the seller who is an auto electrician told me the following:
"You'll see the regulator is different, it packed up and I fitted a Yamaha Tenere one, it was 1/4 the price of the OE"

Unfortunately I don't know what the original wiring looked like, so I cannot judge how much if any modification was needed.

Sounds like an good electrician, thanks for advise.

Nice route. What Ewald did not say is that the DR1306 has about 15 gates that needs to be opened and closed.

If I remember correctly it was about 6 gates. Great opportunity to view area and take pictures.

Dis soos my panniers lyk.
Gaan so iets aanpak, maar lyk my die TS250 se top spoed is 120 km/u. Ek tyfel of die sprockets verander is want die TS het maar 2000km op. Het hom gekoop op 1427km

Jy het nie regting meer spoed as daai nodig nie, ek het my Transalp se voorste sprocket met een tand voor groter gemaak om dir revs af te bring.
Jy kan daai 250 se voorste tand een groter maak of agter drie kleiner gaan. Daar is genoeg krag oor en hy sal die so hoog rev op se 110km of 120km/h nie.

Dis soos die home made TS185 se panniers lyk.

Lyk na n lekker trippie. Wat is die blou fiets in die foto ?

Daai is n 1994 TS 185
Dis goed om te sien dat n 2 smoke ook kan saam ry. Ek het afgeskaal van n R80GS (wat te swaar geword het) na n TS250 met geen pakplek, klein tenk, maar ek is in my noppies  met hom. Gaan plan maak met die pakplek

My friend het sy eie pannier racks gemaak as pakplek en soos jy kan sien ry jy maar petrol saam. Ek gebruik soms n ou warm water bottle vir daai extra 2lt

Die meeste goed vir bikes is net te duur en ek sukkel om die waarde daarin te sien, ek het vir my KLE ook panniers gemaak en dit werk great. Nou gaan ek vir die Transalp ook panniers bou.

Terloops, die sakke en panniers vir die KLE het my R 244.00 gekos.

Die kleiner bikes loop so tussen 100 en 130 wat oorgenoeg is tussen goeie friende, en glo my as dit by technical kom wen hulle altyd.

Die roete was baie nice. Op die een plek in die foto moes ons n stok in die water druk om te bepaal hoe diep en los die pad is. Hier is die roete, dit was 320km tot in Robertson.

Ride Reports / Cape Town to Robertson
« on: July 26, 2016, 08:37:20 am »
So two of my friends and myself did an real nice trip from Cape Town on nature’s roads to the Mountains in Robertson where we stayed the night at my friend’s wooden huts.

We left Saturday morning at 07:00 with no rain, as we got to Brackenfell on the N1 it started raining and we pulled in at the Enigin One Stop for warm coffee. ( Within minutes we were soaking wet )

We waited about 30 min and after all decided that we are not giving this trip up left and made our way to Stellenbosch were Marco insisted he is buying extra gloves for the cold. ( I offered to buy him an pink panty on which he “kindly” declined)

We made our way over Helshoogte and took the gravel road Robertsvlei to Franchoek and stopped for some more warm coffe. We went over the pass on to Theewaterskloof, turned right and then left (R45)  now we really hit gravel.

As we got to Greyton we were just about frozen and stopped at a Restaurant called 1854 where the owner immediately  lit the fire place making it possible for us to reach our wallets. We paid for our lunch and via more gravel roads went through Reviersonderend up to the N2

From the N2 we took the DR1306 ( one of the most amazing gravel roads ever ) to Stormsvlei. From Stormsvlei we took the gravel roads to Mcgregor and then Robertson. We got to Robertson  bought some chops and wine. We then went into the mountains, did our river crossing and met up with my friend at the huts.

The time was 17:15 and now stopped raining !!!!! Woke up the next morning to find our bikes covered in ice, had breakfast and went home.
