Howzit NoRush. Running Kenda big block at the back and is coming up on around 6000kays (I think). It is toast and I'm fitting an E07 at Sharwoods in PE tomorrow. My personal opinion but the Sten just never felt balanced on the Kenda. Had E07 on before and it just worked for my riding style

Drol suggested Terra Khaya as a stayover and I am not disappointed.  What a lekker spot.  Bitch to get in here on the muddy roads but well worth it. Will post some more pics in the morning but this is my cabin for the night.
Rain is bucketting down

Some of these photographs are really beautiful!!
How are the ribs feeling?
If I may ask, how did you find time to take a whole month uninterrupted leave? I'm working extra hours so I can just get 3 days for the Bash next week :lol8:

Photo's are more arse than class but thanks. Luckily the subject is beautiful.
Ribs are still lekker eina but manageable
I get a good number of days leave per year but it still took some convincing to take a month all in one go. Also lucky that I have a some reliable hard workers reporting to me and there was a load of pre-planning involved to make sure I didn't have any big project commitments for this time....and then of course the stars and planets all seemed to align perfectly at just the right time.
Still kukking myself for when I get back though

early start on some muddy roads out of Terra Khaya but the sun was out and things dried out pretty quickly
Some gravel...some tar ... and then Jouberts pass into Lady Grey

This proves that a ride around SA can be some of the best there is!

Thanks for sharing.
