The two big bikes cover kms at a brisk rate and soon we are in Zastron to fill up with fuel

Noneking thanks for the efforts in a truly great ride report. Done some of that area before, but this has inspired me to book the trip April 2020. Just need to decide between my previous  favourite 701 and the new lover 790 R?

We were doing slightly illegal speeds on the asphalt  >:D >:D >:D I saw a bike next to the road just after Hobhouse. Deon hit a rock on Volunteers and was struggling to keep pressure in his front wheel. We fed him some dry wors while he abused the rim with a rock. Righards Airman came in handy to get the pressure up to 3 bar

ja nee jou tyd saam met die 1090 was beslis 'n rowwe rit. Foute, valle, kneuse en ek glo 'n hele paar oproepe na die handelaar toe.

maar dit is altyd goed om sulke swanesang trips te ry. 

Ek doen dit met al my voertuie en daai trips onthou ek vir altyd.  :thumleft:

Eerste 1090 was eintlik die probleem fiets gewees. Paar maande later met die een vervang. Hy was redelik foutloos behalwe vir die val in Desember, maar skade soos nuut na alle komponente vervang is.

Noneking,

Baie nice report thx.  Ek betrap myself hier by die werk met Google Earth oop, en begin passe plot.  Dan google ek weer die passe om die GPS coordinates te kry, dan soek ek weer in Google Earth.  Dog ek vra sommer, het jy dalk die GPS plots van al die passe, of dalk die hele roete wat jul gedoen het?  Ek het die report gelees, nou weer terug by die werk, sien daar het intussen paar besprekings bygekom, nie seker of jy dit dalk iewers gepost het en ek dit gemis het nie?

Baie dankie

Jy kan ook KMZ files van al die passe kry by mountainspassessouthafrica.co.za, die KMZ plot perfek op Google Earth. En teen R300 per jaar is dit 'n baie billike prys vir al daardie inligting (van al die bergpasse in SA).

Awesome report, Noneking! :thumleft:

I noticed the absence of the poop-scoop... and all the mud... I must say that without the poop-scoop my GS/A is much dirtier above the wheel (the wheel well?), and I prefer keeping the poop-scoop present.
