Stairway to Heaven - Riding the Makhondjwa Mountains
« Reply #80 on: November 02, 2020, 09:25:59 am »
Mark's bike was overheating because of coolant leaking out of the radiator and this forced us to ride to Elukwatini to buy something to stop the leak. The town is a $%&#hole of note and we were riding on the sidewalks to avoid the 6 lanes of traffic fitted into two lanes.....

Colon made the most of the visit and charmed a group of ladies who ended up getting on his bike one by one for some pics  :peepwall:

Plan was om met die 990 te kom, is 95% spyt en 5% bly oor die besluit, fiksheid, gewig en seat time het my besluit om ligter te gaan en voor ek vergeet n sny in die 990 se agterwiel maar defnitief volgende keer 8)

A few km later, Colonís bije had the same issue. While Trevor helped him sort it out. Mark and I lay under looked up the shade of a tree and lay down on the lush green grass for a few minutes. The cow was very sceptical......
