Lekker Petri, dis darem lekker om wer so deur ou fotos te werk.  Die wreld was waaragtig 'n ander plek daai tyd gewees.  Jy moes net jou Motorfiets Pak 101 kursus gaan hr het, jy lyk soos daai Sudan busse wat woestyn oor trek.  Versinnebeelding van "pakkasie". :lol8: :lol8:

Ek stem saam met @eberhard oor daai leer tas van joune, dis nou klassiek.

Camping, must have been either Vic or Kariba

Looks somewhat like Eastern Highlands........Inyanga perhaps?
Never hesitate to take that ride. Ride safe, ride often and ride far. The soul demands it.

Apology for quality of old photos.  Yamaha XT500F way back in 1982...  Before the days when it was called "adventure riding".  For me & the wife it was just "touring".  Went everywhere on that bike.  Never should have sold it.  Still, our GS800 nowadays does the same!

Nice to follow your old picture post....

wish i could find my old biking pictures.........i once met a chap from Bethlehem in Namibia in 1988 he was touring on an old bmw.... he had a plot just outside Bethlehem used to collect fossils in Lesotho was a real hardcore bike traveller.....
i remember his riding jacket and pants was a patched leather old jean dungarees .........

visited him once then got transferred to Johannesburg our paths never crossed again......think his name was Wolly Wolhuter

those were the days i lived in Welkom......and started riding all the farm roads on a Yamaha TT then the Tenere
