Thanks all!

Love the understated humor of this report ...and the comprehensive detailing, especially of the side entry road...especially since I’m planning to ride it in reverse next month.

Thanks!

It may be trickier to find the route from the other side. I'm not sure. I'd get lost no matter what (that's why I have Lance). Anyway, if you'd like I can send you the gpx track. The same goes for anyone else who's interested.

FYI: If you want to do this the "legal" way, you have to pay a permit fee at Doringkloof either before or after your ride. I can't remember the amount though.

Lekke report!! Enjoyed it all the way and thank you for sharing the route!!

Bioremediation is a good way clean oil contamination / spillage. There is a company called "selfcoat" in Asla businesses park (Strand) that sells a soap that does this. Very cheap comparatively. I've used it and it does work. Also doesn't contaminate the surrounding areas with solvents as degreasers do.

Thanks for a great ride report. Brings back wonderful memories of the side entry route done around the same time.

Thanks for a great TR, its opened up many new ideas for travel in that Southern Cape area. I especially appreciate the trip route map for each day traveled, a great idea. Well done for travelling in the heat of summer !

I wish the makers of bikers clothing would consider that here in Africa, light coloured clothing is so much more practical and cooler. We are (I feel) always subjected to clothing made using colours and materials that are suitable for colder northern hemisphere climates. Really - black outer clothing in this climate is crazy.
There's a market gap for someone. Nothing darker than khaki ! Yes it will show the dirt easier, but I would rather travel 10 degrees cooler than worry about some dirt that can be washed off.
 My 2c worth !

I'm glad someone else can put it to good use. I know I'm useless with directions and route planning, so this is a record to myself as much as to anyone else.

Ja, that was a dumb idea hey.

I'm with you on this. I'd also rather look dirty than be cooked. But, as you noted, when out looking for biker kit, especially anything for ladies (rare as hens' teeth), you're stuck with the default black. My Richa kit currently consists of a ladies jacket and mens pants (couldn't find the ladies version for love or money).

Lekker RR soos gewoonlik Zanie, vertel asb oor julle fotos ? Gebruik jy GoPro plus iets anders ? Uitstekende fotos, dit voel of ek self daar langs pad staan.
Baie geluk ook met jou Rally 250. Baie veilige kilometers vir jou. :ricky:

Kon jy nie sien waar my hare orent staan nie?  ;D

Na so 'n trippie verloor ek dae van my lewe as gevolg van stadig deur ure se GoPro footage werk en snapshots te neem met VLC. 'n Mens kan frame-by-frame gaan om die beste deel van 'n action sequence te vang. VLC maak net PNGs. Dan gebruik ek Irfanview om als te batch-edit na JPEG en (vir dies wat ek op Wild Dog laai) kleiner te maak (800 pixels wyd).

Lance maak gewoonlik die videos en ons altwee kies die musiek. Dit vat ongeveer 'n uur van werk vir elke minuut van video.

Dankie Zanie. Dit was 'n lekker lees en kyk RR... die beste tipe.   :biggrin:
Ek was gelukkig om tussen die RR deur self in die Kareedouw area te gaan speel. Wil self nog die "side entry" doen.

"Dit vat ongeveer 'n uur van werk vir elke minuut van video."  Sjoe, dit is toewyding!!   :thumleft:
