Adventure Ride Movie (with a Drone) Western Cape Farm visit!
« on: September 14, 2017, 12:26:44 pm »
Hey guys, a while ago i made a mission to an invitation of Dawid S (fellow Wilddog), to his farm near Touwsriver. Im german, and it was my first time of real offroading, and their farm is truly beautiful! Its a Movie / Edit about my motorbike weekend --> turn sound on.   O0



Thank you again for your hospitality, it was such an amazing experience! They have so many different tracks to explore, he mentioned that it would be awsome to have more adventure riders coming by!

That invite has been burning a hole in my dreams - I NEED AN ADVENTURE BIKE!!!

Awesome video!! That riding looks fantastic.

How do you manage to link a YouTube video with music in? I've tried, and YouTube complains I'm using copyrighted content?

Great video.... but I have a question....... How cold does it get in them mountains that you need a sheepskin to keep the fuel warm?  :ricky: :ricky:

Thanks for all the feedback guys, just had a great one week trip incuding the Baviaanskloof, more videos to come!

RI, yes you have to be careful, alot of music is copyrighted, but there are less known songs where you can check up if they are copyrighted :)
Tommy Transalp, hahaha yes exactly, the poor fuel needs some comfort okay? i normally have sheepskin on the seat, and then the look would be complete ;)

Semmy, I've been reminded that I do have an adventure bike (and here I thought it was a dual sport...  ::)).

Do you know DR650s? Would it be able to tackle the terrain there? It really looks epic, would like to make a plan to visit there soon.

Thanks for the tip on music. Incidentally friends have been sending me their mixes, I might just try those :)

Hey Ri,
Well i talked to Dawid, most tracks are doable with normal adv bikes, there is just one track or part that is quite steep, where people tried it with their GS800s and failed :laughing4:
With my 110kg  250cc bike it wont be a problem i beleive :ricky:

Hi Semmy!

What a beautiful video, and that TT-R is just so the right bike for that work!!

Just a warning; beware of sheepskin on the bike, that is Jackal area, you may get chased. :pot:

Very cool. Saw it on FB and was going to ask if you were on here.
Had a little Chinese 200cc when working in Moz and that thing went places I couldn't dream of taking my 990!
Enjoy it!

My DR650, I believe, is not a GS800  :evil6: but it may also have to do with the rider :P

Still worth having a look see  :ricky:

Thanks for the info, Semmy

Great video and really awesome riding terrain  :thumleft: We used to often ride on a farm near De Doorns until the farmer sold the property and that ended our fun  :(

Nice video! We also took advantage of Dawid's generosity a while ago and could manage most of the tracks. Only Deon with his XR650 could make it up the steep hill - very tricky to get up...  ;D
