So gesukkel met posting dat ek n paar laastes vergeet het. Kom ons prober weer... Interessante plek...die Mathopestad...daar in die middle van nowhere...kompleet met groot laerskool, water en krag na al die huise toe.

Mathopestad was part of Bophuthatswana. Our employees families all live there. Because there was no forced removal there, the community is quite stable and many have been farming there for years.

There is also a big wetland there that is the source of the Mooirivier that flows through Potch.

Aahhh...okay, Thanks, now it all makes more sense.

Nee wat Subie...daai side covers van die KLR laat hom behoorlik lomp lyk. Ek het die goed permanent afgehaal...le op n rak in die garage. Toe ek die dag die KLR gekoop het, het ek vir almal vertel dis die LELIKSTE bike op die mark!!!...maar hy doen waarvoor hy ontwerp is goed...en dis waarvoor ek hom gekoop het...function before style!!! IMHO lyk die ding heelwat beter sonder die sidecovers!.

Baie mooi area met baie grondpaaie, en dit is nie eens ver van die stad af nie. Ek het al 'n paar keer Groot Marico toe gery op die pad waarvan subie praat. Mens kan selfs tot in Lichtenburg sonder om baie teer te ry.

Groot Marico is a nice trip, abour 200km from Jhb and can do dirt all the way (once you are out of the big smoke)
