Memel and Wakkerstroom Ride
« on: November 27, 2018, 11:45:48 am »
So after been to Memel years ago with my mate NevilleB on this forum. We decided to go back. Neville planned the route ,a day was set and 6 of use left on Saturday 24  .After Black Friday was over. And to come back on Monday. We set off at 7am sharp from PMB . As we got onto the Middlerus RD ,gravel .The first puncture struck . Nevilles 950 back tyre. The adventure has began . Soon we were on the road again and yet another puncture on Nevilles back tyre. Hell no. So we put in Slime which only gave a few KMs. Off with the tyre to find a big piece of plastic left inside the tyre from when the tyre shop fitted the new tyre and tube . That was cutting the tube.New tube again and on our way. Then i got a flat .Thanks to tubeless .It was a quick repair.   Let the pics do the talking.

That is one riding area that has been on my radar for years.

Just a bit far from Cape, so would need a while in planning.

Thanks for sharing  :thumleft:

Was my best trip yet!

Thanks again NevilleBand IanBfor making this happening - looking forward to many more.

KTM's were the first to fall victim for back tyre punchers - followed by the two AT's  :patch:
The only ones to survive were the GS 1200!

Haven't cleaned the AT yet - think she looks good dirty  :ricky:

Some more pics for the trip...

Perhaps today...
