On we went in the direction of ElandsBaai. Really enjoyed the ride out there too. Really is nice to see so much water in the rivers & dams.

Once we has filled up our stomachs & "washed down" all the dust ;) We mounted up & started making our way back home again. Some really nice riding I have to admit. Roads here were really in a Gr8 condition.

Last few photos from the footage I shot of our ride for that day. I truly enjoyed the day & I trust you have all enjoyed taking a ride along with us, as you checked through these photos.

Till next time.....that's all for now folks. Thanks Andy for leading us on that day & thanks to everyone else that rode with....for making the day as special as what it was. :thumleft:

Eish......you can clearly see, here in the 1st & last photos..... that there were a few KTM's here on these corners having a bit of fun....before we got here :pot: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

I have to add that the road surface here really was Gr8 & it did indeed lend itself to "ridden a little faster" ;D ;D


Haha that first foto was actually me on my DR650, I'm glad it got mentioned in the same breath as a KTM :lol8: The first one was so much fun I turned around and did it again! I think I passed you on that road leading to Moorreesburg.

Looks like a great ride

Regards

looked like this yesterday



Nice RR  :thumleft:


WOW :o :o :o That sure is a lot of water. We were then pretty luck to have been able to get it so low....otherwise we would've had to do another detour.
