On a ride in the Valley on Sunday

How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Looks like this, a piece of concrete reinforcing..... halfway up Sani Da Peeg gets a puncture.  ::) 



No pictures, but about halfway from da Peeg to the border, the GSV Gets “you guessed it” a puncture, yes another piece of wire. But the Annakee Wild stayed on the bead, so a snotty and a tin of tyre weld from a generous 4 x 4 driver and we were on our way again. On the way to Himeville I noticed this in a couple of places. The concrete has spalled off exposing reinforcing mesh, now we know where the wire was coming from anyway.  :'(

I had my first puncture in October 2017 and after about 70 000 km done on this bike between on the gravel road between Eksteeensfontein and Steinkop. Had a snake bike puncture doing about 120km/h two-up with a fully loaded bike . A convoy of  six 4x4's stop by me and I had a spectator crout of about 20 odd people while replacing the tube. (photo 1)

I always ride along my tools and tyre repair stuff and often become the victim to help other people in need.
