One day turns into ten.........
« on: April 18, 2006, 10:59:50 am »
Hey All

So my one day unplanned trip to Knysna, turned into ten days of pure adventure, with 3571 kays of unbelievable kilometres travelled.

I have to await processing and pictures from various friends and people, but if anyone is interested to have me start this, let me know.

I have well over 10 days of admin to catch up, wow........

Okay three takers.

Not really a large response but man is this forum quiet or what?


I will start off in word form, try keep it short


Day One.


Lying in bed at Hildes place on the guest mattress downstairs, Hilde comes to wake me up by jumping on me. Shes full of beans that girl, and cos she is so sweet, I dont mind. Otherwise I would punch the person that does that shit.

She jumps on me, wakes me up and we lie there staring at the wooden ceiling saying: what are we going to do today? Silence.......

Me: lets go tooo......... Knysna!

Hilde without batting an eyelid: YES LETS GO!!!!

Me: disbelieving: are you serious? on the KTM?

Hilde: looks at me like i am a jackass: OF COURS ON THE KTM!!!

Me: on that seat?  you havent done a 500kay day before on a bike have you?

Hilde: looks at me like I am a confirmed jackass: Of COURSE NOT! Lets go!

Me: okay...........


So we jump up and I start thinking, crikey does the bike have enough tyres left? Oiled the chain? The chain and sprockets according the service man who I picked the bike up from the previous day says in German accent: you must replace these immediately... crikey. another 1000 kays is going to make it toast.


I phone a bud, who rides a SV1000 road bike superbike thing, and he says okay, sounds good. Where we sleeping?

Me: I dunno!

Him: (very conservative accountant): ok!

Me: speechless.

Hilde: hey, maybe Marie who has never been on a bike before can sit on Waynes superbike and go with us.

Marie: I am in!

Me: speechless.

So at 12am precisely, we are packed with the KTM being the packmule, and have a complete biking virgin on the superbike and a 150kay max in one day girl on the other, there we go to Knysna. This is what we look like.

unplanned trips are the best, especially when you take pictures and post them on the internet (hint, hint)

LITO, come on dud post the full report with pics.....

By now you should understand the concept of a forum. You don't have to ask who wants to see what, you post it and if people want to read it they do else they don't. You don't see anyone else posting questions in trip reports.......

Heres a taster. I unfortunately grounded this little monster, it was even heavier than a GS. My legs were still hurting from trying to keep it upright.

Michnus, please send me more pics from that section to me. Like when Karen was hanging on for dear life onto you know what.
