"My choice would be the new Adventure Sports version with the 24l tank ...  ;) :drif:"

I may well have a Tri Colour Mark 1 version for you, you may have even seen this bike too ... I'll even throw in a spare 7lt fuel bladder for mahala ...

Thanks for an excellent RR.

Daardie Williston Mall is nogal 'n oulike en interessante plek, baie vriendelike eienaars. Ek en my ma het onlangs soontoe gery vir die dag. Hulle het ons gratis tee/koffie/beskuit gegee want dit was daar vir hulle oornaggaste.

Ek het teenoorgestelde rigting van julle gery die 27ste, en wonder of ek julle dalk Írens langs die pad gesien het - daardie BMW is 'n merkwaardige kleur.

Baie dankie vir die mooi skryf en baie foto's! My motorfiets is nog nie eers afgestof/afgewas nie maar ek is al klaar weer lus om te ry  :-[

From Halfway to Brandvlei, the road becomes much more interesting ... 
Kalahari-boy was flying, while I took it a bit more careful - still a bit "bewerig" from the earlier fright ... 

Total distance is 221km from Pofadder to Brandvlei ...

Now what a surprise Brandvlei turned out to be!!! Super neat filling station and co-op with super cool air con, neat town and the great "Windpomp Restaurant" !!!  :thumleft: :thumleft:
Ai.
Hoe verlang ek nou.

Vandat ek kan onthou het my tannie hulle daai huis gehad waar Williston mall nou is.
Sy is seker so 15 jaar terug oorlede toe is plek verkoop.
Het baie as kind daar tyd deurgebring.

Ja dit was n baie lekker trip gewees en dit was net so lekker om dit weer so met die RR te herleef. Sal beslis weer in daai rigting ingaan. Harder wÍreld daai, maar baie mooi. Hoop om gou weer so te maak.  :ricky:
