Baster is busted
« on: February 22, 2021, 12:20:46 pm »
A few of us Greyhounds who have not been out and about on the bikes for far too long decided at short notice that we are heading for a weekend to the mountains of Rhodes
I have ridden Baster Voetpad a good few times and that was where we 1st hit the dirt, 2 of us on the right tool with 650`s, 1 x 660 and the incorrect tool being a 1050 KTM
I was aware that the area had received a lot of rain but was still shocked at how the area and Baster in particular has been damaged :eek7:
I ended up riding my 650 and the 1050 most of the way up with assistance from Moon and needless to say we spent over 4 hours to complete the pass bottom to top...I wont ever take a 1050 roadbike up there again! :lol8:

On Saturday we rode up to Tiffendale which is in great condition and back down Volunteers Hoek pass to Wartrail which is also very poor condition

 :thumleft: rode it in 2013 just after rains too, the camber of the roads going through the forests leading up to the actual pass was fun to say the least, mud slide!!

The photos always refuse to show the real truth of how buggered those roads are.  :biggrin:

Sorry, going to hi-jack now as this thread has just brought back one of my best memories. 2011, having just conquered Bastervoetpad on my R80G/S with Glen. What a ride.
