Haha Kilroy I sure don't feel like it after the rides   :biggrin: :biggrin:

About 4 weeks ago me and Highsider and another chap rode up to the farmhouse belonging to the guy who owns Darkest Africa to ask if we could leave my bike there for the night as it had a burst water pipe. As we took off our helmets, old Piet Opperman says in Afrikaans something to this effect: "Jirre when you rode up here I presumed you were a bunch of youngsters, but now I see you a group of fokken pensioners"   :laughing4: :laughing4: :laughing4: 
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Still a great place to ride - Darkest of Africa and Rocky Horror Road - it lives up to its name. Zingela is still the best place for Bikers weekend. Nice one Jon W. Must get off my lazy ass and join you for a ride again.

Great riding Jon.  I must get the Darkest Africa tracks from you for when next in the area as that route looks amazing.   :drif:
Unfortunately I never got my bike down there over the Easter break to take you up on the offer of some riding around there. Looking forward to seeing some more and maybe trying out that burger at the Muden shebeen!!
