Must be a proud feeling Jupiter, watching your baby from the side line, doing really well

I look, read and wait in anticipation   :patch: I had no hisitation letting the bike go on a long trip in the right hands, but this is its first long touring trip since I got the bike.  :eek7:

Only been to through Baviaans before and Old School Bash. They'll do fine.  :thumleft:

Just heard from Bungy. Going well and bike running like a Swiss watch. Most of the oil is still inside it  :imaposer:

Oils fine. In Adelaide and heading to Willowmore/Oudsthorn.

Chatted to him earlier and says all's good.

This is now great stuff.   :thumleft:

Keep it coming, it can only get better.   :sip:

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:

Ek wou ook sę... ons ouens met opgegroeide dogters ken die gevoel. Onthou jy toe sy op daai eerste date gegaan het, of daai eerste naweek weg saam die boyfriend en sy ouers ?

'n Ou kan nie help om maar heeltyd so gekriewel in jou hol te hę nie, al weet jy jy ken jou kind en als sal allraait wees.  :3some:

Ons het so 8 maande gedate, en so week na sy matriek geskryf het, vra ek hom dat sy saam my op 'n bike trip gaan. 31 jaar later en ek dink nou nog nie hy is oor dit nie.

Besig om law te swot, dan is 'n ou mos reeds slim.

Hier is ons... reg om te ry. Hy't die foto geneem dat hy darem iets kon hę om sy dogter by te onthou. Volgens hom was ek 'n skollie.  :imaposer:

I recall he said he's going to stealth camp somewhere tonight, so probably somewhere in the mountains with no reception ?

He took a dead end short cut just outside Willowmore, previously a public road, @ 6pm he was going to have a beer with the farmer and then push on to Willowmore.

I suspect some Eastern Cape hospitality has got the better of him as his tracker still sits in the main farmhouse and now his phone is off.

He had a long day and he's not a heavy drinker so it's probably lights out till tomorrow.
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

He was supposed to update last night, but seemed to have gotten way-laid. Suppose we'll get the full story later.

Sent him an SMS and waiting for reply.
