Hierdie ride report sal my beslis baie help met beplanning vir wanneer ek die roete wil aanpak.

Baie dankie  :thumleft:

Die oos-kaap / transkei het regtig van die mooiste plekke om te ry.  Die paaie is net nie altyd so mooi nie, maar ons biker manne worry mos nie :ricky: :ricky: :pot:

Noneking baie dankie vir 'n awesome RR.  Ek het dit nou baie geniet saam met al die pragtige foto's.  Ek dink daars min mense wat regtig weet hoe mooi ons land daar buite is... :drif: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Great video by Mr Kamstra! He's got an unfair advantage - those long legs are like having training wheels in tricky terrain... 
Nah.... Just a great bike and mediocre balance.

Great vid  :thumleft: I must say the final climb to Ben McDui had me busy in the cockpit. Did it solo a few months back after it had been 'carefully graded' by the manager at Tiffendale - maybe nice for the 4 times 4 guys but faark seriously fooking loose on a bike and easy to run out of traction and momentum ... would rather have had your uneven but more solid surface for the ascent (as can be seen by my expression  ;D).
