I rode that little path on the other side again...
Got wedged on the side embankment, haha.
Got going again but no momentum or traction meant I had to turn around.

Damn.
I will take my plastic bike soon just to go see whats on the other side.

No much more I can add to the reports, but to agree with the sentiments on a great ride, Thanks Splash. I tried to map a route out on my GPS and there are plenty more roads in the area to ride, especially if you head a bit south towards Carltonville from Rustenburg.

I got one photo of the backup to the KTM backup.

Regards
AdventureBoy

Some pics from the "phase two" ride.

Disclaimer : bit of personal and South African history and totally non-biking stuff to follow:-

        

For a history nut like myself this is an amazing story!  Thanks for sharing.  Must've been a mix of emotions going to that place...

AND BTW great ride you guys!!

Red meat isn't bad for you - fuzzy green meat is bad for you.

I'm suffering from the rare condition bikelessness.

Mixed emotions? yep - seriously mixed - and strange memories.

That bay window I am standing in in the pic was where David Pratt used to practise his mornng yoga - stark nekkid of course. My mother sent me to call him for breakfast and he is in a head-stand position with folded legs - sort of like an upside-down buddha - and I have to adopt the same pose to deliver the message. My mother comes looking for me to see what happened - musta have looked funny cos her pajama-clad son and nekkid Pratt are both poepol in die lug, and she gets the giggles that won't go 'til after breakfast.

Writing for me is like riding bike or talking rubbish - once I start I dunno how to stop - so don't get me started. Blazes was right when he said "they go on a never-ending story with Gunda".

Few years ago I get this gogga inside of me that says I have to try writing a novel and after two novels of words I was still trying to get it ended - Damn thing ended up trilogy length.
