Day 1 ended on this scenic camping spot, where we made fire and talked k@k, shot cans with a kettie, and kept the others awake!

Day 2 started with koffie for some, others got shot on the arm by a certain kettie-whealding XT, who was subsequently disarmed!  ;D

Another flat tyre was fixed, a refueling took place, and then a lekker brekkie at the Sutherland Hotel.

And now I shall wait for the awsome pics of the most beautifull pass I have ever had the pleasure of riding which name I forgot. I was too busy chasing Bradleys and XT660R at 150km/h to take decent pics and read road signs!  >:D

My first ever overnight ride on the KTM was to Middlepos during July 2006, Cold, wet and I loved it. Want to do it again.

If it is 'Ouberg' I'm going to be jealous ...

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
