Congrats! Thought the KLR had a set of elephant ears (read hand guards) but this bike has the KLR licked.

Congrats Operator, really looks like a good buy! :thumbsup:

And I'm so glad so see Watty had better tyres fitted on your bike than his ::)  ;D

To continue with the Ride Report Watty started:

While Operator was making his way West from PE, I set off from George to meet him at the Oyster Catcher in Knysna. Detourer was also going to be there to hand over Firebucket who will travel with Operator to Cape Town.



When I got there Detourer was already waiting with a cold one ;D



What a view:



Before long Operator pulled up on his brand new Vuka Scuta ;D ;D ;D



Naaaah. He's got a very clean Suzuki 250 ;)



Welcome to the brotherhood :occasion14:



After a HOT lunch  :cherry: (thanks Detourer :thumleft:) we set off for the seven passes and Operator's first dirt of the trip.











By the time we reached the Saasveld road the first drops of rain started to fall.



We had a nice braai last night and talked the evening away.

This morning it was raining hard. :-\ Operator got a rain suit from the local Agri co-op (ala Rooipoot ;D) and suited up just after lunch.



And in the pouring rain he set off to Swellendam.



Blikners - over to you ;D

I met Operator in Heidelberg at 4 and we rode to Swellies together. Didn't take much photos because we were pressed for time. Here's some pics from today.
First was taken between Heidelberg and Strawberry Hill. Second was taken from Strawberry hill when we had to stop to admire the sun rays through the clouds.

Nice going! How nice of all the dogs to help him get to CT. :thumbsup:

Operator, just remember to cut off the cap of that rainsuit, otherwise it will start to tear. I know.  ;D
