Pro Tip #1
Make sure you have your RokStraps lying ready for use on the ground alongside your bike BEFORE mounting every last pannier, roll top bag and other luggage item.


Pro Tip #2
Look in the very bottom of the last bag you would've looked in to find them. The RokStraps WILL be there.


Pro Tip #3
Remain calm at all times. You are on holiday. There is nothing to be gained by getting worked up when you have to unpack Every. Single. Item. Out. Of. Every. Bag.

Smile and breath deeply.

 BEER..."I drink it when I`m happy or when I`m sad. I drink it when I`m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. Trifle with it if I`m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I`m thirsty"

Jy ry hopeloos te min, dis die rede waarom jy dinge nie reg doen nie.  :pot:

Eish Johan....you have a way with words in both languages that I envy.
You also clearly have the same need for solitude and wide open spaces that many of us have, but that relatively few answer.

Enjoy your trip.

You are going to enjoy the next two books in that Cormac McCarthy trilogy - entirely appropriate to the landscape you are riding in...


And the soundtrack to the movie is not too shabby either.

Ek het vandag eers saam met jou begin ry, sal weer terug wees om verder te ry. Mooi ry en geniet die veld en blomme, los net die bytjies uit.  :ricky:

Thanks [mention]P.K. [/mention] I'll write some of my RR in English when I'm back.

Ja, there is something about solitude and open spaces. A primal need for me.

No need for English boet....in fact I need to look back to the beginning of this report to see which language is used. It is of no consequence to me which is used...you are articulate in both and your commentary is great.

Ek gooi nog 'n houtjie of twee op julle leeslus se vuurtjie. Net om hom aan die brand te hou totdat ek tuis is en my vertellinge kan deel.

Wanner dit in die winter beginne reŽn en die temperatuur wys 10į maar dit voel nader aan 0į, wanneer die pad snotterig begin raak en die plaaslike mens noem so saggies van dalk sneeu, dan kom skuil ware avontuurruiters in 'n gastehuis met 'n warm kombÍrs en hoop die krag bly deurnag aan.

Dit sous op Fraserburg. Veld staan al vol water. Ek is bitter bly vir die boere.

Vir my hande en voete nie so bly nie.
