Why we ride Dual Sports?
« on: September 03, 2008, 03:35:03 pm »
There have been many e-mails doing the rounds of storm vengance and power - I share this one of the N2 outside PE heading in from Grahamstown direction. This is a two lane highway.

Looks like the farm roads in the Swartland on Monday less uprooted trees and broken electricity poles :D

No the rocks are not off the 'dollose' (those triangulated concrete barriers designed by a Spoornet employee to 'breek the water' ... as a breakwater) but thrown up from the beach and coastline. They had to close the N2 to get bulldozers in to clear it.
