@chopper pilot  arranged for a bunch of us to visit Gerrit Du Toit in Tzaneen for a long weekend of riding some of the amazing routes in the area. Gerrit is the owner of Oppie Oewer and offers fantastic accommodation and guided tours of the areas surrounding Tzaneen. Oppie Oewer is situated on the edge of the Letaba River.

Loading @chopperpilot 's and Johan's bikes in Nelspruit. My new-to-me Husky 501 would be arriving in Tzaneen with @Dwerg and @MonkeyNot that evening

We left Nelspruit just after 2pm and encountered heavy rain on the other side of Strydom Tunnel. Rivers of water next to the road. This did not bode well for our first ride the next morning.

Saturday was our first day of riding and it started off with a stretch of tar to Die Eiland where we put fuel in the bikes and bought a few snacks for the trip which would see us hugging the KNP fence for a while.

@Dwerg thinking whether he should forgive me for dragging him into the river bed kicking and screaming  ;)

I wasn’t too keen on going down into this river at first. It was still early in the morning and we were up until AM hours drinking tea and discussing knitting. Rivers became a theme for the trip though and soon staying out of them wouldn’t be an option

More wet gravel followed and when we stopped at the Little Letaba River, we knew we might be in for a MOIST day......

Soon we had first challenge of the day in front of us. Kamlilibone river....... The usually bone dry riverbed was now a 100m wide raging  river. Gerrit crossed first on the 990, followed by myself on the Husky 501. Next up was Andreas on the Suzuki, which promptly stalled slap bang in the middle of the river.

It was decided to play things safe and walk the rest of the bikes through as it was still early and lots of riding to follow.

@Dwerg coming through with the 690
