Hey wow thanks guys(said on behalf of miss Teeni the yammie teneré!) who truly is the star of this show. Up here in the hogsback now and it's bucketing down. Hope I'll be able to get out the hard way tomorrow. What an astounding day I've had starting off with the five star brekfast and sendoff services of warren (Tornadof5) praying with their family and getting a very good hug from Morgie. I've been refusing multiple applications from the estate agents to buy farms. I gave up counting species at 50. Saw a lekker herd of giraffe. Forded a HUGE crossing. Rode a road my dad last rode on when he was 10! Had kif weather all day found out that the Teeni doesn't like over 100kmh but will get there happily what a phenomenal day. I am at loss for words. I will firm up this report on the flight home but for sure I aim to report back before Gerard does his return leg! Can't post photos from this thing but am using Andrews camera so I'm sure he'll reciprocate. Big day tomorrow so I'm going to enjoy my indoor boerie Braai spuds and garlic. Jim

He's down Mitchell's pass and over and down Katberg Pass. Says it was hectic and in first gear for quite a while.

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Kamanya, tell Jim to check the oil as soon as he can. Working that hard she would have weezed and gulped it down.  :deal:

Thing about an old bike is to know all its quirks. Once you take care of it, it goes forever. Jim knows what he is doing.  :thumleft:
