We filled up at Standerton and pushed on through Perdekop towards Memel





Cow Selfie!!


























We played the sheepdog role








The road got a little looser in places closer to Memel but nothing hectic.

Finally arriving in Memel around 4pm, we were in dire need of a few cold ones



We stayed at Memel hotel with Chris (Memelman) and Audrey as our hosts. If you have never been there I absolutely recommend the place to stay, well looked after, stocked bar, good food, comfortable sleeping and also fantastic riding in the area for a weekend away

Day 2 – Memel to Sakabula lodge

We woke up to a cold Memel, I think the cold made me feel a little nauseous and gave me a headache, it had nothing to do with the previous evenings Captain Morgan consumption.






We had 416Km to do to the Bash lodge, sounded doable, but it also depends on the roads and conditions you’re riding in. The route I had plotted was by far mainly dirt.
We had 3 named passes to cross as well, I was looking forward to those. We were pretty amped after the previous days riding, the nice thing was that the landscape had changed, we were entering mountainous terrain, the Highveld terrain gets so boring, all just flat and dull.

After breakfast we settled out account, bid farewell to our hosts and Hit the road, well after The KTM got more fuel, poor thing has such a small tank.

Next up was Normandien pass, I had heard a lot of talk about this pass and how spectacular it is, but that was about it, http://www.mountainpassessouthafrica.co.za/ says this pass is for 4x4 only and also only for advanced Motorcycle riders. We are Bikers, we qualify, how hard can this be?























Some of the route up is cemented for better traction but there are parts with small step ups and rocky outcrops. One step up I hit caused my front wheel to bounce sideways, I looked to the right and about 1.5m away was the edge to the abyss, its high, I did crap myself, what if…… 
But we made it to the top and I can now tick another pass off my list. It was awesome to summit that. In my experience, that was the most technical pass I have tackled to date, Sani wasn’t even close, it’s too well maintained nowadays. Normandien probably isn’t the hardest out there, but it’s taken tops on the ones I have done on a big bike. Personally I would also rather do this pass up and not down.

From there down was nice and easy, very gradual decents over long distances, you barely noticed it, headed towards Collings pass. But the road did get Rocky, rocky as in loose gravel rock all over the road, you stick to the tracks and its ok, but occasionally the track disappears and you’re riding on marbles, this carried on for what felt like forever, Just on and on, serious concentration all the way.
Collings pass left nothing to write about, I am sure it has some sort of historical value but it’s just ok.
I didn’t take pictures there, but we did find a spot to have a drink of water, a smoke and a rest.



This spot was eerie, dead quiet!
After we stopped engines and helmets off, we heard a cow in the distance mooing but after that, we noticed the silence, absolutely no sound at all. Incredible.
