Toe ek myself nou genooi het om by Goose oor te slaap wou ek nou nie ook so voorbarig wees om te vra dat hy 'n klomp Honne oornooi vir die kuier, dat ek kan hello sê nie. Daar was 'n paar wat ek graag wou sien en soos dit is is dit toe net die wat hy nooi.

Crossed-up het vinnig 'n draai kom maak. Hy kon nie bly nie want sy vrou was bietjie siek. Was lekker om jou te sien John en thanks vir die moeite.

Ek wou Buzzlightyear ontmoet en hy daag daar op. Was net so lekker om Doerengone en Rynet weer te sien. Goose se twee seuns is net 'n plesier om in die geselsskap te hê. Watter mooi geskikte jong manne. Hy kan trots wees op hulle.

Einde van die aand het almal lekker saam gekuier. Daar was al genoeg ander party pics, so ek volstaan met die.

EDIT : As I re-read, to lay out the next post, I notice the mug next to me in the third pic and realize i did not give him a mention. We've kuiered so many times this year, that I almost took him for granted to be there. Sorry Andy, as always it was good too see you and meet your family this time.

                                                               Sunday – 16 December 2012

I get up early and have a long day ahead. The plan is to meet Dan in Stellenbosch, who had invited his friend Phill and GJ(Gideon) along. We would ride through the Koppies to Robertson and have a brekkie. From there I would ride to Montagu to say hello to Bokveld and then over Oubergpas, around the back to Ladismith, where I would stay over at Veltie’s place again.

As usual I won’t stay on my planned route, but since I started riding again in 2007, this was one of the best changes I had ever made.

When I pull away at Goose’s place I notice two things are wrong… the gear lever is in the wrong position and the stearing head is stuck. When Jim collected the bike I thought the headbearings were suspect. They were now positively farked, but there was nothing I could do about it now. This was going to make for some interesting riding on the gravel. The gear lever I’ll sort out at Dan’s place.

I take the N2 and after the turn-off on the R310  I feel something else now feels funny with the gear lever. It’s got play in it. I stop at the garage to fill up and jiggle it up and down. Maybe its just loose and not stripped ? But its uncomfortable, as you have to ‘gear’ twice to select a gear. This could be a problem in technical stuff.

At Dan’s place the introductions are made and coffee served. There was actually a new leak on the bike and he sorts it quickly with two new o-rings on the left enjin cover inspection bolts.

The gear lever gets McGyvered and tightened up, and that seems to sort it. Some of the splines must have stripped in one of Jim’s falls, but there seems to be enough bite to hold it. Time will tell and did.



After checking the oil and topping up, Dan gets his ATGATT on  :imaposer:  and we’re on our way



We go around to Phill’s house to collect him as Dan thought I would like to see his old bikes. No shit and the man’s got lots of interesting stuff. His garage is like a museum.

An interesting vice



A Vincent and two BSA Café Racer’s. The real McCoy… not the stuff we wannabee’s build. Its tight so difficult to get nice pics



1968 Truimph T100, the same as Ted Simon rode on his first trip



Ready to roll. Phill rides the same bike as mine, but his goes like stink. Does not start as easy as mine though  :biggrin:

When I sort of planned the ride I knew I would go over Helshoogtepas, the third time this year. On previous occasions I tried to find the memorial for Mrs Yammi, but could not. Just before the weekend I read a post by Yammi Super Ten in memory of his late wife and asked he explain to me where it is. I cruised slowly over Helshoogte with them in my thoughts, but missed it again.

We get to Franschhoek and its packed with super bikes, mostly I suppose there for a jaag over the pass. We encountered a few. Scary.

At the garage where we stop for fuel and cold drinks a guy pulls up on this old beauty



Up and over Franschhoekpas. Initially I battle on the bends with the stuck steering, but quickly find if I use my body weight to lean and counter steer the bike, it goes better with less chance of going over the edge







After Villiersdorp we get on gravel and as usual my gravel mojo is not good until the first smoke break. Now I also feel for the first time how the bike behaves on gravel and its not good. I’ll give you the load down later when we get to more serious stuff.

In the mean time Dan and Gideon cruise around on their back wheels… Eish some okes. I did not want to ask them for a poser, that I can get a pic, because that’s usually when shit happens.







We cruise on through the hills, me at a very sedate pace, which is anyhow how I ride and really enjoy my surroundings. After a while I realise I know where I am, even though I’m  doing the route reverse,… its where we rode to and from the Breede Bash.

In Robertson its time for that brekkie at the Wimpy. IT TAKES A REAL MAN TO DRINK A PINK MILK SHAKE IN PUBLIC




It was time to say goodbye and for me to continue on my own. Thanks manne vir ‘n lekker saamry.

Op Ashton en in Kogmanskloof gooi ek eers gou ‘n pose en toe is dit Montagu toe vir ‘n kuier met Bokveld





Die wat vir Bokveld ken sal weet hoe lekker dit is om saam hom te kuier. Die man kan ‘n storie vertel. Toe ek daar kom is hy en sy familie agter in die jaart besig om te braai. Hy trek sommer dadelik weg en ek sit rustig en luister na die dreun van sy stem. As ek nie gekeer het nie sou ek heeldag daar gesit het, maar ek moes aan.

Eers ‘n pose net vir Chris met Wit, maar hy wil nie saam werk nie.




Dis so half drie toe ek daar wegkom, maar daar’s geen haas nie. Dis so 120km onthou ek rofweg Ladismith toe en ek het baie tyd. Met my spoed sal dit my so twee en ‘n half uur neem. Ek kan my tyd vat.

Ek het die pad al gery, maar van die anderkant af, nou’s dit mos soos ‘n nuwe pad. Dis mooi en die XT loop lekker. Dis warm en moeite om te stop vir foto’s, maar ek kry darem ‘n paar in.

By die driffie doen ek ‘n BermRooster en sien amper weer my gat. Stop eers om myself weer te kollekteer.



Erens teen die pas op…



… en ander kant uit



Dan is ek op die vlaktes en raak ‘lost in thought’. ZEN. Daar’s so effe krapperige ondertoon in my gemoed. Die keer herken ek dit dadelik. Die wat die Social Tour gelees het, sal onthou die aand toe ek by Agullas opgeëindig het instede van by Chris.

Die plan is om vanaand by Veltie oor te slaap, maar ek het nie lus vir mense nie. Gisteraand se lekker kuier, en sover vandag, is vir eers genoeg. Ek wil alleen wees.

Toe ons laaities was, en so met die fifties rondgery het, het ons sommer in die aand langs die pad by picnic spots geslaap onder seiltjies. Dis die laaste wat ek ge-stealth kamp het en ek wil dit lankal weer doen. Ek gaan vanaand in die veld kamp. So ry en beplan ek, en voel hoe die kalm opgewondenheid my skielik rustig maak.

Dis warm en ek kry ‘n koeltetjie om bietjie lafenis  en suurstof aanvulling te vat



Soos ek ry dink ek waar ek gaan slaap. Die plan sou wees om more van Veltie af Gysmanshoek pas oor te ry en dan by Chris ‘n draai te gaan maak. Vandaar sou ek rondkronkel en by my niggie op Sedgefield oorslaap. Ek het baie tyd.

Daars ‘n mooi spot bo-op Rooibergpas by die klipbaken en ek het al dikwels gedink dit sal lekker wees om daar te kamp. Logistics en water is bietjie van ‘n probleem, maar ek is lus vir die pas en vandaar kan ek Gysmanshoek oor.

So drentel my gedagtes maar. Die ander opsie is Seweweekspoort. Daar’s ‘n mooi spot by ‘n driffie waar ek en Lyn al voorheen ge-picnic het. En dan is ek nog steeds naby genoeg om moreoggend eers Rooibergpas te doen.

Ek begin nou wonder of ek op die regte pad is. Ek herken niks. Daars klein passies en poorte en al kom ek van die ander kant of behoort ek dit te onthou. Ek ry maar aan.

Ek kom so passie af en daars ‘n mooi vallei voor my



Die gearlever begin nou neuk en ek raak bekommerd oor hom. Ek stop in die poort om hom eers bietjie te bekyk



Ek verbeel my dalk maar daar’s nou meer speling in hom. Ek haal my spanners uit en check, maar die bout is styf. Ek is bang vir draai en strip, so ek los hom. Ek sal maar net versgtig moet gears trap.

Maar dis ‘n problem. More ry ek tegniese dele waar ek dalk skielik hard die lever sal moet trap en breek hy dalk. Dan is my trip nou mooi in sy moer. Soos ek ry ZEN ek oor wat te doen staan. Wees rustig, die oplossing sal kom.

Daars ‘n mooi rotformasie. Ek verwonder my altyd aand die ongelooflike krag wat dit moet vat om die rotse so te buig.



Uitendelik ry ek by ‘n plekkie verby waar ek en Lyn voorheen gestop het om te picnic en is gerusgestel dat ek op die regte pad is. Kort hierna is ek by die Ladismith/ Laingsburg pad en besef met teleurstelling dat die dag se ry amper verby is. Eers maak ek ‘n draai deur die Van Zyl’s damme pad, wat Bokveld my gesê het, en verdwaal lekker so tussen die kronkels teen die berg af.

So tussen deur het ek besluit ek gaan in Seweweekspoort slaap vanaand en eers by Veltie ‘n draai maak om voorraad te kry. Nou dat die besluit geneem is, is daar ‘n opgewonde afwagting in my.


Dis die onverwagte onderbrekings wat die trip lekker maak.

Op koedoeskloof aangekom, is Veldbrand en Blommie nie daar nie. Hulle het 'n ent gaan ry. Ek vermaak my maar om weer foto's van die berg te neem.

So ruk later kom hulle daar aan en ons drink 'n paar koues. Die plan is nou om laat middag poort toe te ry en net na donker tent op te slaan. Ons het so uur of wat vir kuier.

Veltie maak vir my 'n hammie vir padkos en ek pak 'n klompie biere. Dis tyd om te ry en ek maak reëlings met Veldbrand om vir my back-up te gee vir die veldslapery en more se alleen ry oor Gysmanshoek.

Ek maak maar altyd so as ek op 'n verlate plek alleen is. Ek reël dat iemand weet waar ek is, en as ek deur is, laat weet ek hulle ek is veilig. Op my ouderdom het ek nie meer rede om tough en stupid te wees nie.

So ry ek laatmiddag die poort in. Dis altyd vir my van die mooiste tye van die dag om te ry. Vroegoggend ook. Daar's so stilte in die lug.
Heel diep in, by die driffie, kry ek die plek waar ek wil kamp

Ek wou graag my tent daar agter teen die bak opslaan dat ek bietjie beskut van die pad sou wees, maar die plek is vieslik bemors. Skandelik dat mense so sal wees.

Terwyl ek wag dat dit heel donker raak geniet ek solank 'n 'horse-ovary' en toe dit donker is, is dit moer donker. Daar's nie 'n maan nie en dis van daai wat jy rerig nie jou hand voor jou oë kan sien nie.

After dark I pitch my tent and then there's no reason to postpone any longer... its time for that hammie and nothing tastes like it when you in the veld and hungry. Those ice cold beers futher did the trick.

Its too early to crawl in the tent and hot. I take my stretcher out and lie under the sky. I'm in this amphitheatre looking up at the stars. Its magical and the milkyway like a white band. The night sounds are eerie, but soothing. I just lie there and ponder. This truelly is life and can't believe I've not done it before. The feeling of solitude is amazing and invigorating. I can do this all the time. Thoughts of days gone by and trekkers with their wagons go through my head. This was their daily life. Harsh it must have been, but what a way to live. I was born 150 years too late.

With this tranquility over me, and a long day behind, I fall asleep under the stars and wake up an hour and a half later. That was awesome, I crawl in the tent and have a sleep as few before.

The gear lever has been in the back of my mind. I don't want to risk getting stuck in the middle of nowhere and I want to do Gysmanshoek. After much pondering I decide the only solution now, to insure the ride, is to have the lever spot welded onto the shaft. Not ideal long term, but I need a solution only for the next two days. I'm not going to risk spoiling my ride.

Like doing technical, you commit and go. I've made the decision and am happy with it. Now the quandry. I doubt I'll find a welder in Caltzdorp today, so I'll have to skip Rooibergpas. I head for Ladismith, after letting Veltie and Wify know I'm good.

Its still very early and at the R62 restaurant I have a brekkie first. If they made those sarmies any smaller there would be nothing on my plate, but it fills the spot.

I remembered there was a workshop behind the garage, and when I get there, I find the owner in attendance, who had just come in for a quick emergency. My luck, I borrow his welder and half an hour later I'm on the road, assured the lever is now good.

You can see the play in the lever. I doubt I would have finished the trip.

Ek vat die pad Riversdal toe en draai af na Gysmanshoek. Chris het mooi beduie hoe kom ek daar.



So ent teen die pas uit





Die pad is bietjie rof en klipperrig en dis nou hier waar die steering head my laat sweet. Daar’s nie van lyn kies nie. Hy kies sy eie lyn en ek moet net vashou.

Anderkant af is moer styl en die bike het nie juis voorbrieke om van te praat nie. Ek sluip daar af.





Ek is bly ek het die gery. Was mooi en net lekker die bike getoets. Na die afdraai is die pad so lekker power slide windy-windy(nie dat ek kan nie) en dan lê die berge weer so uitgestrek langs jou.





By Riversdal hou ek verby oppad Stilbaai toe maar kry eers ‘n lekker koffie by die padstal



By Chris aangekom is hy nie daar nie en Amanda gee solank koffie. Intussen check ek ‘n slag die bike se olie en moet ‘n hele pint ingooi.

Chris daag op en bring vir Lem saam wat hy in die dorp raak geloop het. Dis nou ‘n aangename verrassing om hom daar te ontmoet. Ons het al baie oor die forum gesels. Ek het myself genoeg tyd gegee vir die kuier want julle weet mos. Amanda maak vir ons lekker midadaag ete en so word die tyd omgekuier.



Mooi uitsig om van jou agterstoep af te hê



Ek hoor Heimer is op Stilbaai en maak skaapkop, en ook dat Footpeg se Pa by die huis is op Gourits, so ek wil gou ‘n draai gaan maak. Ek moet ook nog slaapplek soek vir die aand want ek is nie meer lus vir Sedgefield toe ry nie.

Dis tyd om te groet en ek vat die pad. Eendag gaan ek nog ‘n foto van Amanda kry.
