The two Dinosaurs Do Namibia
« on: February 27, 2014, 05:43:42 pm »
                                                          The Two Dinosaurs Do Namibia

                                                             Ok Ok it was two years ago.
                                                                        Any Way.

                                                              This is How it came to be.

Mmm so me and Ian (Ian In Great Brak River} is having this lekker  discussion about bikes and all those other lekker gootes that us ous chat about when he tunes me. Hey my china have you ever considered doing gravel roads? Now im a Tar rider who does a bit of the gravel thing to get to the jols and such gootes. So I tunes to him why? Well why don’t I think about it and he tunes me all about this site WD and I must check it out and join up if im interested. So I check out the site and scheme to my self why not. Ian has done a few trips and I checked out his RR’s as well as a lot of other ous RR’s as well, it looks as if these ous are having a moerse jol. And to top it all off I actually dig nature.
So I tunes to him ok im game lets do it.

So what do I need? Duh!! A bike which handles gravel and tar and all of those places those mad ous take there bikes into, as my old but faithful Kawa’s are not made for such riding.

So I check around and me being a bit of a kort gat am sukkeling to find a boney which I smaak and can feel comfy on. Eventually come across an AT XRV 750. For you ous that don’t know, its an Africa Twin, Bit high but I took one look and knew I had found my DP bike and it had all the extras I needed for the trip.



So I get hold of Ian and tune him we on boet, he tunes me what to buy and all those gootes I will need. Lucky I have a lot of those gootes from my rally days.



Cool Hey. So now we are going to Namibia and my first long Gravel Roads.
He makes the plans I buy the necessary kit and all the stuff for the trip and”walla” the time has come to start a new adventure in my life. Little realizing that it would change a lot in my life. (DAM GRAVEL ROADES)

Ian does the planning as im still learning the ropes and I aint got a cooking clue what to expect. Lucky for me I had a couple of cold ones to entertain my self with.



The trip starts
Tune my daughter that she can ride down to George with me and have a bit of a holiday as she has never been down that way.(Her first major long trip on a bike) Needles to say her ass was of.(HE HE) Arrive in George, meet up with Ian at his house and have a few cold ones. Then go and show my daughter the sites and have a bit of a jol and a few cold ones as we show her Ian’s side of the country.



Next day the two Dinosaurs are sitting on the stoep talking kak and discussing the route and such.



Check out this rare photo, Yes im actually drinking some coffee.

Ian had bought us some Ribzz stretches and he tested his out that night on the balcony, I opted to kip on a nice soft bed.



Make arrangements for my daughter who is not chuffed with us as you could see she wanted to cruise with us as she digs bikes just as much as her old man.
But nooit man this is a Buddy thing so got her a bus ticket to go back home to Pretoria.



The day dawns and the two Dinosaurs start there trip.

We cruise to Swartberg Pass and we do a  bit of site seeing along the way, we are going to kip over in Sutherland.













Last time me and Ian went up this pass I was on a 1000j Kawa and he was on his Honda, it was snowing, made an interesting ride, with a bit of slips here and there but never the less we had some great fun going up and coming down





Well lekker weather and the pass was quite so we had a lekker rustige cruise.





And down we came, we now at the bottom of the pass (he he)

We then headed of to prince Albert for a lunch and one or two cold ones. Mmm the trip has started. For you ous that don’t know me I enjoy a cold one here and there.(he he)



We stop at Prince Albert for a graze and one or two cold ones, now as Ian is getting back on his boney, he almost lets it fall over as some dam street kids are harassing us for money, in the attempt to stop it from going 180 degrees he ruks it back only to hear some thing go pop in his arm. and an acute pain shoots up his arm. He had not realized it yet but he had torn the tendon, lucky not all the way threw. This of course would come back to haunt him later on in the trip



We went via Merweville and even had to open and close some bloody gates to get there.







My first time in Sutherland



It wasn’t even that cold, but I did make sure to have a few cold ones, just in case, went and checked out the stars with those little telescope thingies. Next morning it was a bit koud, I think those cold ones were wearing off. Any way a lekker breakfast, load up kit, fill up tanks and off we go.

Now I have grown up on bikes and really enjoy the rides, had done a reasonable amount of dirt. but this was different riding  from what I was used to, a new challenge for me, but ya what the hell it’s a road as such, only difference its sand. Mmm Ya those gedaagtes would come back to bite me on the ass.

Now as I was cruising down this lekker sandy road, that old Murphy ou played a prank on me ( im sure) because there was this moerse big 4X4 truck thingy coming towards me, so I scheme to myself that seeing that this ou is a moerse lot bigger than me I would like cruise a bit to the side of the soft sand which is coming up so I slacked off to about walking pace to let him pass by and as he passes by I feel the bikes starts to fall over and age nee man I donnerd down.





Nobody had ever told me look up open up and get threw it and the Bastard didn’t even stop to help me pick up the bike. He must of schemed to himself that hey that ous a biker and his moerse tough so he can pick it up his self. No problem I scheme to myself I will just pick up the bike myself, im a dinosaur, a biker, a WD and we ous are moerse strong ous, so I take hold of her, ya right, she budges a little and that’s all, so I scheme I must be doing this picking up thing all wrong, so I take out the only cold one I have and start to drink it whilst I contemplate this problem. No solution to this dilemma but I have checked pics where you ous take of all the kit, so I do that, then try again.



Kit off mmm bike comes up with no problem, was great full for having a cold one at hand to help the brain sort out the problem. @%$^%@ at the guy in his 4X4. Kit on and off I go. Needles to say old Ian got a couple of @#%$#$@ words from me as well, as he was a couple of km ahead of me and not there to help pick up the bloody Monster. And I also sommer flooked @#$$$#@ at myself for being an idiot and letting the bike fall.

Meet old Ian further up the track, tune him what happened but Ian being Ian looks at me with a straight face and does not say much. I’m sure he was having a lekker laugh at my expense.


Now ive read about how you ous normally sukkel at the border posts well give a man credit where its due, one two and three and we are through, now my main concern at the border post that these ous were going to check out our kit and then find all of my cold ones and confiscate them and leave me bone dry, luck was on my side, no kit check so I had all my cold ones to myself.

So of to Nam we go, ok hang on we are already in Nam, Oops sorry that’s what happens when the cold ones start to leave ones system.

On the Bridge





There’s even a sign to let one know you in Nam



We cruise onwards to Felix Unite to camp for the night. As we book in Ian hears this dude shouting at him, it a lost bud of his they aint seen each other for 30years. Introductions are made and they are chatting away like some old huis vroue and I open a cold one , hoping that they will miss the ssssh sound as ive only got 2 left and am moerse dors after the long ride, luck is on my side as they are talking so much kak  that I manage to drink all the cold ones by myself. They still talking kak so I go to verken the joint. The Gods are once again smiling on me, there’s a moerse bar filled with lotsa cold ones just waiting for me, I was like a kid in a candy store. They even let a ou take them with you so I could now go back and offer Ian, his bud and misses a cold one.

The two steeds.



The camp site.



Sommer put up our tents on the lawn close to the place that sells cold ones. The owner tuned us it was ok, I think he saw the desperate look on my face to have to walk far to replenish my supply of cold ones for the night, so happy guys we are and we span our tents for the night.





As it turned out the gods sommer smiled at me again because Ian’s old bud Dave and his wife Sonja also smaaked cold ones so we had a lekker Braai, kuier and some good company, not to say that Ian’s company aint good but he doesn’t drink as much cold ones as we did and we all no the more cold ones a ou drinks the lekkerde the geselskap gets.

Next morning we catch an early breakfast and say our goodbyes and off we go to check out the gravel and the scenery of this possie. Wait Ian has been in Nam before so his just here for the ride, ok I suppose he might also want to check out the possie as well and I suppose the scenery too.

So here I am cruising along minding my own business and thinking about the lekker cold ones I had the night before and the lekker kak we spoke when all of a sudden my bike starts skuttering like a demon out of hell, breaking my speed sommer fast down and making my head feel like a ball in those pin ball machines, sommer in the inside of my helmet. I check down to see what has gone wrong with my bike as I almost schemed that I had lost my front wheel or some thing like that only to see that nooit man the whole bloody road we riding in is one mass of corrugation, and I sommer new that this was not going to help the babelaas that I was nursing. Now that just aint lekker for a ou, I mean dam life some times just has to be mean and gooi you a curve ball. I mean the head was still sort of lekker (ok ok I know you ous that know me will not agree with this statement) but now I could feel that those cold ones and that road are sommer not going to work lekker together for my head, Agga no man. Nothing I could do about it but to push on.  You see I was right, head sommer started to feel soar and I could feel the swet starting, and I also knew that I was gonna loose all of those cold ones that were still pumping along in my veins because of the stupid road.

Get a bit further down the road and the corrugations ease up, so I become a happy ou, come up to Ian next to the road, there’s this sign tuning Rosh Pinah 100km





Nooit man don’t know if im gonna make it that far as im already starting to dehydrate and I have no cold ones as I drank them all last night and am now forced to drink aaah (water) just doesn’t taste the same.

Me and Ian by our bikes.





This posy is tranquil, im at peace with the world, except that I aint got no cold ones on hand and mentally @#$$$$# at my self.





We cross over this bridge there’s a river flowing under it and it looks so lekker that we stop and take some photos

Some where further on we stop to take some nice pics of this mooi country









We stop and take some more pics





Then we stop again and take some more pics as we cross another bridge



I check this sign showing fish but as we did not bring our fishing rods with we had to abandon the idea. Was sommer not chuffed with Ian as he was here before and should of planned better.

Then its back on the bikes and we cruise on, dam this place is hot so im forced to drink some more aaah (water) from the camel pack on my back and I thought it was there for “show and tell”.( For some or other stupid reason Ian would not allow me to fill it up with cold ones)





So we turn right onto the D463 and then left onto the D459 which has a lot of dry river beds and is quite sandy in places which makes a ous bike wobble and stuff. But hey its okay as at least there aint that bloody corrugation to ruk the hell out of me





Even had to put the feet out to stop me from donnering over. So then Ian tunes me, no man, stand on the pegs and look up and open up and you wont have a problem, told you ous this china of mine he can think about all these problem things and sommer sort them out, even with out having a cold one. So I try it and dam he was right its sommer made a lot of difference



Ian is cruising some where ahead of me and taking some nice pics and enjoying the ride as I was doing.







But not any more as im now taking some kak photos.





I misjudged this soft sand stuff and came pipe, was cruising saw the sand took a spoor which turned out to be the wrong one and the bike went towards a doring boom



So I turned slightly and the next thing I saw was me going threw the wind shield and coming to a rest a few meters in front of my bike.” He he that was fun”. Check out the time and distance.



No cold ones to drown my sorrow ,I started to dig out my front wheel, while a bloody baboon sat there and watched me (spose he thought this was hilarious)took some pics, had some aaah (water), kit off, bike up.



Some more aaah (water) (was actually getting used to the stuff) kit on bike, had some more aaah (water). Could of sat there contemplating the situation and waited for Ian to come looking for me, but no, not one cold ones to keep me company $##^%$#%$ at myself for not restocking . Off I go to find Ian.

Met up with Ian as he was coming back to look for me.
See if I had a couple of cold ones I would not of had to do the laborious task of getting all the kit off and picking up the bike all by my lone some and then having to put all the bloody kit back on again. @#@$# at myself sommer again. Well once again as you ous know. Me and Ian we are Dinosaurs we are bikers we are tough ous and so are our bikes, so no injuries except for my wind shield and “Ya” my (pride).

Have a bit of a rest and talk about what happened and ya well of we go.

Now Ian in all of his wisdom had actually crossed over this quaint little stream,
he decided to wait for me so he could take pics of me crossing it.



(He he ) he had to cross it 3 times in one day and it was not a quaint little stream but a lousy water crossing with lekker mud at the bottom as well. So im pretty sure that he #%$$ at me a few times.
Mean while he opted to take some mooi photos of the scenery. See I told you ous that he most probably wanted to also check out the possie.





So a bit further down the drag we stop to take a break and drink some aaah (water) when He looks at me and says how could I be so bloody stupid, So I tune him hey what’s your bloody problem, its not you who came off and it doesn’t help to get da moer in, when he checks me out with this blank expression and then it dawns on him that I skimmed he was calling me stupid, and says. No no, not you im talking about myself. Its me who is bloody stupid as we haven’t let air out of our tyres and we are still riding on tar pressure. Hu!, so what I tune to him.  He then tunes me that we have to let air out as it makes a moerse difference on the handling. Ok I tune so lets do it. He then pulls out this tyre gauge thingy and we drop the front pressure down to1.5 bar and dam what a difference it makes. @%$#@%$ as I swore at him.

Tonight we planned to stop at Aua Vista and we still had a long way to go, Petrol was running low as evening was approaching us.



So after a bit of  a convo, we decided that as he was the faster rider of us two that he would go ahead to some town (cant remember its name)( Jees old age sucks) and get some petrol there in case they close early. Tuned him to get us some cold ones as well as by this time I was moerse thirsty. Of he goes, I finally get to the T- junction, there’s Ian so I stop. Good news or bad he asks me, what the hell give me the bad first. Ghost town he says, no petrol and to make things even worse, now we still had no cold ones. Ah shit I tune as we still have 90km to go and im already on 280km and running low, so what’s the good news I ask him. Oh ive got a tow rope he tunes and my bike has a wider petrol range than yours so if you run dry  I can at least tow you. Ya right the sun is going down and there’s no way his gonna tow me in the dark. So I slip stream him and we cruise along doing 80km a hour,  eventually see a sign board 40km to Aua Vista so I scheme stuff this and open up, needles to say I just managed to get there, Filled up the tank, had 1/2 a liter left talk about a close call.

We book in, drop of the kit, change and then go and have a lekker graze and a cold one or two. Ya right a few cold ones to wash down the gravel (from my little crashing incident) which buy this time was causing major havoc in my throat, (well that’s my story and im sticking to it.) Must say the sand tastes the same as in RSA. So now im at least feeling a whole lot better. Place was rather busy, a lot of cages round. Back to our sleeping quarters, had a nice cold one in the shower for company and hit the bed and was lights out.  The quaint possie.

Im on the left his on the right.



Loved that place as it had lots and lots of cold ones, even had a fridge with cold ones in it for us dors travelers. Only one problem I encounted in Namibia is that most of the places you get to they only have Windhoek lager, or Windhoek light, or Windhoek draught, it looks as if this is the customary  cold one in that country,  but don’t let it worry you ous, as one quickly learns to adapt. Still cant figure it out.

Bright and early the next morning we pack on the kit, check out the bikes and get ready to take on the roads.





Check out the cool t shirt



Ian is always bitching to leave early. So we left at about 09h00 hey that’s early for me.
 
Check out this road and the nice scenery, this is why we are here, to be at peace with ones self and nature and of course the lekker ride and good company. Good roads, no cages around so we having a bloody good ride.
