Another little Sunday 370k's odd ride - Garden Route ...
« on: March 02, 2015, 11:01:56 am »
So we decided to keep it clean this time  ::) - doing some lovely old tar roads - luckily abandoned by Sanral ...  :ricky:
Met up at Sasol N2 George, through Wilderness; Knysna Brenton (Skolla picked up his wife there visiting some friends.), some frustrating Stop/Go's before Plett, and eventually right towards Nature's Valley. From here we kept on straight through the picturistic Bloukrans Pass (actually closed for traffic). What a garden of Eden - but be carefull, no maintenance on the EC side - loose stone, slippery patches and generally overgrown ...  :deal: .... but most entertaining!!!

After a nice brunch at Stormsriver, joined by some friends from PE on a beautiful K1200RS, we returned via the same route, except from Wilderness we took the old road via Saasveld back to George. Safely home by 16:00, even in time for a shower and Sunday evening church!
Have I mentioned lately that we live in a beautiful country  and are so privileged to be able to enjoy it on the back of a motorcycle!!  8)

Some more Nature's Valley pics and our last stop at Sedgefield...
Forgot to mention why BB's DR Suzook is missing - he opt to take his lovely NC700 for this trip ....  :thumleft: (BTW - it returned a figure of 30.1km/l for the day  :o - and here and there we went up to speeds of 150km/h... )

Ja dankie dit was nou sommer n lekker vinnige heen en weer. 1-2-3 (dit verwys na die silinders, of pistons vir julle wat engels praat) toe was ons daar. Seker so goed gedoen met die brandstof omdat ek die hele tyd geslip het  ;D

Dankie manne, ek sal bitter graag weer Bloukrans wil ry, het dit laas gery toe dit nog oop was vir verkeer

Die voordeel dat dit gesluit is - is dat die "mooi" eintlik behoue bly - ek het nÍrens rommmel of enigiets sien rondlÍ nie. In die hele tyd wat ons daar spandeer het, is daar ook net 2 ander voertuie deur.
Ek is net bevrees die Oos Kaap kant sal nie meer "te lank" ry-baar wees nie, ek het 'n hele aantal krake a.g.v. helling verskuiwing ("glippe") opgemerk - so die kans is goed dat gedeeltes van die pad heeltemal kan padgee en onder in die rivier beland !  :eek7:
