Very nice area, nice RR, thanks for sharing Offshore.  What back tyre are you running?
Hey Dorsland. It is a Perelli Scorpion. A very good Allrounder and lasts about 5000 km.

I have a Scorpion on my 800GSA and it doesn't look like that.  Are there different versions? Looks like a damn nice tyre, are you happy with it? (sorry for the hijack but I am shopping for tyres now)

It is MT 90. Size is 150/70. Yes Dors, I am very happy with them as an Allrounder.

Agree, for the rear. And in the front I run the TKC 80.

Eventually I arrive in Rietbron. There are old Houses and a few Renovated ones. At the local Shop a beautiful young Lady sells me 5 Liter of Fuel and tells me a bit about the little Town. After Years of neglect People are actually moving back as in her case and make living here. Total amount of Inhabitants including the nearby Location, 1000 People. You don't see a Squattercamp but only neat RDP Houses. After devouring a Russian Roll I cruise around and bump into a fellow Wild Dog, "Casino" who moved here with his Wife and is raising his Kids here where Crime is something that you hear only about from People that pass through. We had a long chat and it was really amazing to listen to other Peoples Life Stories. The last time this Garage was open Diesel cost R2.95. :eek7:

Hallo Offshore and all fellow WD,

Was so nice meeting you here and hopefully not the last time. We will be able to host the fellow dogs here better in the near future too and thank you for writing a nice report on our town. Some very nice pics ! And a very nice RR . .. Next time will be able to give you a cold one.
321 see ya Casino!
