The ride out is surprisingly not technical at all and you do not need special skills other than choosing the correct line and be careful at 4x4's approaching around the blind corners at speed.  :deal:

It is however a very relaxed enjoyable good gravel pass  :thumleft:

All too soon it was over, but it was absolutely worth it!  :thumleft:

Time with my son and Juda, and what more could I have asked for!!  8)

One more reason why I love our country so much, and the 3 of us hope to do more trips in future together!  :)

Hope you have enjoyed the short RR! Cheers to all my WD friends and Seasonal greetings!!  :thumleft:

Lekker Tom, was lekker om jou weer te sien en ook om jou seun en Juda te ontmoet.  Ek is bly die fiets loop goed en dat hy tevrede met hom is.  Interessant dat my laaste rit met hom Die Hel toe was en Chris se eerste rit weer terug daarnatoe.

Ek is nogsteeds spyt ek het hom verkoop maar soos jy s, dis n kop besluit, nie n hart besluit nie.

Bly julle het lekker hier gebly. As julle weer kom dan lyk dit weer mooi na die ren. Jy kon gerus weer hier oorgebly het eerder as om jou oor n mik te ry huistoe. Dis moer vr op een dag.

Tom thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your wonderful trip. Having ridden those roads before your report has motivated me to Do It Again soon in the New year. Have a blessed  Christmas and thanks again.

I have not taken it for a ride yet Roxenz, my son is glued to the bike but I am already making sums to try and sell the NC and source a nice Z for myself!!  :thumleft:

Lekker saam getoer Tom.

Verlede jaar Desember het ek die Montagu pas gedoen, toe was hy weer totaal afgebrand.
Each day is a present, don't send it back unopened.

 The Hell burned down.....shit its sad,

Dis baie hartseer van die infrastrukture wat afgebrand het in die vuur, maar dis baie goed dat die doringboom vervuiling nou n slag skoongebrand is. Niemand het iets gedoen aan die indringer plante so nou is die probleem opgelos.

Dit moet baie spesiaal wees om so n trip saam met jou seun te doen Tom. Hoop julle gaan kans kry om nog baie te doen. :thumleft:

Great RR. Brings back wonderful memories of when I did the same trip over 11 years ago with my wife.
Pass this way once!

Ek sien hulle ry alweer op my agterstoep. Juda is seker bang  om draad en tang te kom leen vir daai KTM :imaposer:
