Weekend ride Barkley east , Busterfoet , And more.
« on: November 17, 2020, 04:18:03 pm »
 I was invited to do a few passes in the Barkley east area. Jouberts pass, lundeans , Tenahead toTiffindale , Otto du plesses, And Bustersfoet pass. It was a amaizing trip. 1720kms round trip.  Just some random pictures. And i am super impressed with this 790R.

The blue building is / was the Post Office in Barkley East.  As kids, it was a clean building.

So sad to see how it looks now.......

Beautiful area to ride a bike.  Do you have more pictures?  I was told that the fixed Bastervoetpad. 
Life is hard - even harder if you are stupid.

There is a team of roadworks-engineers staying at my FIL's guest house, which are upgrading/fixing the dirt roads in the area.
Baster was apparently on their list - dunno what the status is currently.

Could be the case.
As I understood from them, they were going to target the road to Rhodes first.
Then there might have also been some serious delays cause of Covid.
