The last day was not comfortable but is doable. I think a good distance on these little bikes should not be more than 400/450km's a day, less would be better.

In my opinion that applies to all adventure rides, no matter the bike.

Dis die geheim. Deesdae maak hulle die seats te sag. GSA het lag-lag die kakste seat. Kry vir jou 'n GS seat.

Noudat jy dit noem, ek dink jy het my al gese, maar net nog nie geluister nie.   :eek7:

Maar ek het 'n exstra spons uitgesny volgens die seat se vorm en uitgetoets.  Nou is hy reg, ek sit hoer, wat ek wil he vir my kniee om minder gebuig te wees, en my gat raak nie moeg nie.  Nan moet hom nou net oortrek.   :thumleft:

Very lekkah RR , Arende...

Love the red enamel cup out there in the breeze on Mevrouís luggage - some kind of magic charm, no doubt.

And those roads - in your fine pics - I know and love them in all their unpredictability like part of my own soul ...

And next time, even if you donít want to stop In Grahamstown, Iíll meet you outside town somewhere on one of those magic gravel roads with coffee to help you on your way.

Thanks a mil.  Grahamstown area is our favorite playground.  We love the Coombs area and often do day trips there and return via Port Alfred.  Will for sure give a call when we are in the area again, much appreciated.     :thumleft: :thumleft:

Tog so, op my 1150 wat 'n plat plat, harde plank seat het kan ek nou klim en heeldag ry. Eet eers die sogenaamde 'comfort' seat gehad en sommer gou van hom ontslae geraak.

Party gatte pas op party seats en ander nie.

Ek het vir my 'n "lower seat" gekoop en ek ry baie gemakliker met dit en ek kan langer sit as op die GSA seat.

Nice trip you had. reminds me I need to do that same ride again but on the 250.
Been down those roads on the big adventure bike several times but can be a scary ride with sometimes the roads in a bad condition.
But on the 250 it will be easy with a smile.

Well done to you & the wife for doing it.
Especially the home trip long km.
I cannot sit that long on the seat even with the sheepskin.
Do not think I could push that mileage in one day.
It would just be too painful.

Thanks for your kind words, Mr T.   :thumleft:

The last day was not comfortable but is doable.  I think a good distance on these little bikes should not be more than 400/450km's a day, less would be better.

That is how I did my trip with the KLR to the cape and back.  Not even more than 350km if i could not help it.  Would want to stop and take photos and not rush everything.  Get early in a town and go to the local for a beer or 3

That's the way we prefer it, 350km to max 400km and get at your destination around 15:00.  Enough time to settle and get those much needed beers.    :biggrin: :biggrin:  What's the rush in any case.    :patch:
