Ride Reports / Re: Three Weeks and 6300km Around SA on my Bike

Fantastic trip you did Mother.
May I ask, you've just been around South Africa. Any particular region like ie. Northern Cape etc that you prefer. Things like the people, the hospitality, the vibe, scenery, climate etc.. Please say why if you like a particular area?

Thanks!
Rex

Hi Rex Thank you

All the people i found helpful and friendly......perhaps i was lucky or its the peoples way when you are a lone biker.....a lot were curious as to why so far ...why alone...etc

The eastern part of the country is exceptionally beautiful but busy with lots of places and people......was very fortunate being there mid week so it wasn't overly busy like on a weekend

i personally prefer the remote solitude to the west coast and places like Hondeklip bay or Klein Pella and the remote Tankwa i enjoyed

For me and the open spaces with very little people .....that rings my bell for getting away

my absolute favourite place to ride is Namibia .......remote......friendly people.......scenery....

West Coast north of Kamieskroon along the orange is probably as close as one gets in SA so same vibe.........hopefully this answers your question

When we were in the Cederberg, West Coast and Namakwa in early September, I found that area almost like a piece of old South Africa. I live in Gauteng and the atmosphere there is so much more relaxed. Never encountered the kind of entitlement and arrogance we experience up here almost all the time. Much more respect and verdraagsaamheid between everyone. I could live there.
 
The favorite areas that you mention appeals to me as well, for the same reasons. Child of the Namib desert.

Howzit grumpy, see you said that balancing was checked upon fitment, same here which lead me down a rabit-hole, turned out that KTM did a shitty job at the balancing when they fitted the new front rim and new tyres, dude at Trac-Mac was surprised how wrong KTM got it, it's cheap enough to have checked out, hope you get sorted chop-chop.

The powerband of the f800 is between 5000 to 8000 rpms. 120 is just under that so might feel lazy. Push het past 5000 and she will fly
