It's done 30 000 kms since Oct. 2016, even with me not riding for 6 months, so Stellies to Kruger is small change. :ricky:

But if we pull together say, 4 guys, it's better to trailer.

Not everyone is as tough as 2StrokeDan. 8)

I was actually talking to MiniDan earlier, and Sept. may be the time. :ricky:

And from all corners, nooks and crannies of our wonderful land, they started making their way to the north, to descend upon Noneking like the ten plagues of Moses' times.
