Min of meer daar waar jy die water op jou kop gooi, is 'n pad regs, wat net so mooi is.

Dankie vd deel.  Nice.

Hi Vis arend, ons het ontmoet voor die Wimpy in Upington, sien julle was toe Riem vas maak toe. Ek was juis so 5 weke gelede daar. Mooi RR. Was ook by die bash maar het 6 pap wiele gehad op my xt660r. Hier is my side car bike nou in die mark vir 35K. Groete.

Hi Woody ja dit is 'n CJ 750. Dit is 'n replica van 'n 1938 model ek sal moet kyk watter jaar hy geregistreer is, sal jou laat weet. Ek het geen modernifikasies op hom gedoen nie. Hy het baie lae myle op.Groete

Dankie Arende. I live at the sea and it is raining today and the world you brought into my living room is so far removed from what I am experiencing now. Thank you for an inspiring trip from inspirational people! Will be back in SA in Dec.

I’ve been following  your report and found the photos and particularly the videos really great. I really got the feeling that I was riding along with you which in my present condition, was nice. The views of the roads and the scenery is an encouragement  for me to come back and explore South Africa.
I’m really interested in your outfit. If you have written about it, I would love to get a reference so that i could read it. I think a sidecar outfit is the way I might be going in the future and would love to see how other people have set up theres.
Thanks again for a great RR and I hope one day i have the opportunity to meet up with you. :)
