Somewhere during 1992 I rode that road for the first time. I took a map, it indicated that there was a road. I had a bike (an old bmw r60/6), I rode it. I rode it last three years ago, on a bike that was 44 years old. Maybe you bought the wrong bike, maybe download the dvd and watch it in the comfort of your home.

Only you can prevent yourself from riding the road.

I think the road was waxed recently...  :peepwall:  8)  :biggrin:

We did this via the B8 and A35. back in 2010, Was tar all the way except for about 10 - 20km through Mahango Game Reserve.
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.
