I honestly don't think that Ronnies would get a mention on most peoples ranking list of places to stop were it not for that little three letter word painted on the wall.

It's true what they say. SEX sells.  :3some:
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

The problem with Ronnie’s is that it is a tourist attraction, with prices to match.  Because of its fame, it is a must do for first time visitors to the region, but there isn’t any incentive to go back. I’ve stopped there twice, and after the second time I wondered why I bothered.  If they were more accommodating to people who regularly passed by , they would not be in this situation.
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

if i ever get bad service from someone i never ever return to the same place.....
Pity he did'nt save for a rainy day....
Really feel sorry for him- beter om iemand te beny as om te bejammer

To me, RSS is one of those places where you stop for a photo with the sign in the background, and then promptly tick it off your bucket list. Unlike the pub at the top of Sani, which a visit to basically implies you just ascended the pass and is thus a worthy stop, a photo at RSS does not signify anything other really than “I was here too”.

On the other hand, given his few visitors, perhaps that explains the prices? The man had to survive somehow, and perhaps there just wasn't enough left to save for a rainy day?

I think his prices were reasonable until the place became popular.
Been there, didn't buy the T shirt. Wasn't worth the effort.

Wait until Tito jacks up the prices of booze to pay for the COVID crap...

Beer in UK is about R60 a pint - more than half of it being tax.
Life is far too short to be taken too seriously.

I see the biker fraternity is standing together as usual...  :sip:

 I never knew it as a "biker venue"
 why do you say the above ?

I have been there once , was something to see , I was the only oke there on a bike , lots of "tourists"
met and chatted to Ronnie , nice guy
paid a fortune for the couple beers , no worries


I wonder if he will help me catch up on my bond payments , and replenish my short salary ……………….  just saying
 
just wanna have fun , and ride ... and ....... ride

Never mind RSS, which has never impressed me at all. But in terms of the area, I'd rather make an effort to see Eugene of Koedoeskloof and have a burger/coke (best in SA) and probably Diesel & Crème in Barrydale, big portions, reasonable prices. RSS is not reasonable. Simple. :ricky:
Those two are mandatory stops every time I’m in the area :thumleft:
