Zuurberg Pass Day Trip
« on: December 29, 2014, 06:13:53 pm »
Decided to do a quick day trip on boxing day with my sister, Martina and buddy DiftagAddonian.
Here are just some shots of the random spots on the day.

Tiens, Vra vir BigMart vir 'n "introduction" op die forum. Sy eerste post kan mos nie 'n RR wees nie  :imaposer:  :imaposer:  :peepwall:

Diffie, die deel vanaf Elephant Back Safari tot by Ann's Villa is baie sleg...tegniese ry. Geen kans vir stop en fotos neem as jy eers begin ry nie

Thanks for the share!

Nice to meet you at the OE, DiftagAddonian. Those soft panniers looked the business! Was the HONDA still under the Turds knife and being repaired that it missed this ride?

Oh well as Meatloaf sings" TWO OUT OF THREE AINT BAD!" 2 x GS's and 1 x Orange Elephant pup!!

One day we will convert all KTM riders, BigMart! Welcome to the forum by the way!

Here are just a few snapshots I got of the quality of the road going over the mountain. Not too bad I think, but I am sure Martina on the KTM says otherwise...  :pot:
