N8 Road Condition to Kimberley.
« on: May 26, 2014, 11:28:35 am »
Swambo and myself are planning a trip from JHB to Kimberley this week-end. Can any dog tell me what is the road conditions like? We  will be traveling with our K1300S leaving on Friday and return on Sunday.
Any info will be appreciated.

Why not take the N12 past Bloemhof and Christiana?

Sorry. My mistake. It is the N 12 I'm thinking about and not the N 8. Getting old is not for pissies. :biggrin:
Is the N 12 in good condition?

Rode back home from Kimberley early May.  N12 is in perfect condition.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Jip, N12 is good. Look out for speedcops close to Wolmaranstad and where you go into Bloemhof!

I have some ugly fines outstanding there....
