Thanx for all the comments.

OX, do it, you'll love it. A 640 was built with the Kao road in mind.

Jy's reg Plottie, dis so 'n "wat nou?" gevoel as deur is.

Shark, I didn't take enough pics of the real conditions. It's hectic in places. But, so far, everyone that has posted a report on that road, also didn't take enough pics. Stopping in a difficult section for quick pic or 2 is not an option. Once you're moving, you don't want to stop.
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Respect... I take my hat off... um, well, helmet..? Well done on a real good effort. Sheesh! You have got what it takes! :o
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

Groenie julle het lekker trip gehad. Nou dat ek na jou report kyk en die ander manne wat advies gegee het voordat ek en 3 ander  manne begin Feb 08 daar was, laat dit my dink die oos na wes keuse wat ons gevat het is beter. Ons het nie een keer regtig moeilikheid gehad nie. Klink my die wes na oos (op) is half rowwer.

Net soos jy se op die stadium bly die foto's van die baie slegte deel net voor (na) die myn uitstaande want daar is nie van stop as jy eers in dit is nie. Ons moes op daardie stadium ook maar vasvat en ry want toe reen dit asof daar nie weer reen gaan wees nie.

Great trip. Memories will stay

Groete
Niekie

Thanks G - wat 'n great report!  Wiele met 'n P.
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.

No Rob, you don't want to stop. There's bound to be at last 10 of them rock throwers with throwing distance and the buggers are quite accurate.
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.
