One night one post?
Does your wife not like a top box behind her? I would have thought the top box would be on before the panniers? Just asking.

Hi
i don't ride with a top box ..never have ..........i keep the space behind for my bmw roll with my tent and sleeping bag so i only have side panniers.....just my preference

Makes no difference to me what you ride, as long as you ride!

Thank you for sharing. Beautiful pictures and stunning scenery. You just do not see this kind of scenery in Gauteng , Freestate nor Kwa-Zulu Natal.  Definitely on my bucket list. Can you supply us a basic route map please. One day... regards.

after being overwhelmed by Protem we continued on all the scenic dirt farm roads until we got to Malgas coming in from the Bredasdorp side

certainly beautiful and peaceful these back roads

at Malgas Hotel we met up with a group of riders from Cape Town who also had the same plan for the weekend with their wives

Malgas is definitely a nice place to take your wife and get in a bit on nice motorcycle riding off the beaten track

I see a Rothmans Africa Twin here. Friend of mine was there as well.

You got a nice trip in before lockdown!

You also have a very attractive missus.
