So I get this PM...
« on: May 25, 2015, 11:15:03 am »
.. from Eek07, aka. David, wanting to know something about a KLR radiator fan and clutch. It turns out he just bought a KLR in Cape Town and is on his up into Africa on it. He's done Lesotho already and was staying in a hostel in Jhb so I invite him to come crash at my place while we sort out his bike.

He rocks up on a dirty KLR and a smile



After a few days of going through the bike and getting his kit sorted we decide a little trip is in order and set off to Breedts on Sunday morning. First beer stop.





Then we do a quick brekkie at the Wimpy at Harties and after an eventful ride (my throttle cable broke and we had no tools with us) we got to the bottom of Breedts Nek.



Then up and on top.



This was a first for Plathond as well and he enjoyed it



A few pics of the bikes





We had a beer and boerie at the shop down the bottom and made friends with the new owner.



And then we set off for dinner at Kilroy's place. He put some brisket on the smoker!



Don't look back, that's not where you're going.
