Spur in warmbaths is really well suited for a stop when on a ride.
Buffet breakfast = R40 (Sunday)
BIG Glass of Coke with lotse ice R7.50 (aids in dust and grit removal in main inlet of humans)

Total R47.50 excl tip

Our waitress was very efficient and friendly.

The serve buffet lunch after breakfast (who would have thought)
Dunnow price but it sure looke yummy.

They are happy to serve 2 wheelers and are all very friendly.

Not possible to go on dirt all the way, but can get pretty close.

Follow the roads from the Wallmansthal area, travelling north - north west, past Pienaarsrivier and eventually Bela Bela.

Can aslo stay east of N1 past that well known 4X4 place, can't remember now - ask me in the morning, something with a W me thinks  :oops: Rust de Winter  :D  there we go!

Anyhow from there work your way towards Bela Bela.

Best motto is........if you see a dirt track follow it and keep in the general direction  :roll:
Grey Haired Riders Don't get that way from pure luck!

You can also ride past the groot klip, along the way we went to the crater trip, going straight at that furtherest point, and then a few zig zags when you get close to Mabalingwe.

Shark.. we did that route when i went on the Lyndhurst brekkie last year. Where we turned right at the furthes point like you said on the crater, carry on straight...its a looong stretch eventually hook up with tar to warmbaths for the last 50km's or so... its a nice ride....when we did it there was some really fast sections with sandy patches to keep you awake...we should maybe look at doing it sometime when i have a bike.

from bela bela you can travel dirt towards thabazimbi (blouvark??) there's aparently a nice fairly technica bit on a mountainpass if i remember correctly.. i think camojo and the dude from lyndhurst (not mikethebike) did that one...my memory is a bit like a swiss cheese sometimes...

Oh yes, very nice roads with some nice deep sand in sections(especially on the sides) GS, I think you're refering to Rankins Pass.
Bela-Bela to Thabazimbi to Vaalwater, all dirt.
You can always rinse the surface
but the stain will remain.
