Daai lyk nou 'n lekker paadtjies.   :thumleft:
Ek het altyd gedink die pad loop dood erens, tot ek mooi op google maps gaan kyk het.
Dit was regtig 'n lekker stuk pad met plek-plek bietjie los sand en dan weer bietjie klippe net om dit interessant te hou.  :ricky:

Watter paaie is daai in Poloplaas?  Ek het jare terug daai paaie pap gery met Jane
Daai fietsie lyk so oulik.  Ek begin wonder ...

Ek het daar agter die skietbaan gaan ry en uiteindelik met 'n ompad by Dalmada uitgekom
Die CRF250L is op hierdie stadium perfek vir waar en hoe ek ry.
Jy en Visarend is omtrent ewe groot en hy ry lekker met sy 250 Rally  :thumleft:

daar tussen die plotte deur by Dalmada en op pad na turfloop is lekker om te ry.  Doen jouself 'n guns en doen die paaie regs van Turfloop na Haenertsburg.  Ek en @Strompie het so gery.  Moerse lekker

Sal bietjie op google maps loer, dankie

Edit: Ek het bietjie gekyk en ja ek het daai Wolkberg pad en omgewing al gery tot by Haenertsburg. Dis weer tyd, dink ek.  :thumleft:

I went for a ride yesterday morning and was lucky to spot 3 x giraffe at a watering hole.
They were at the opposite bank of the dam and partly hidden behind trees (yellow arrows on 2nd photo indicate their position)
I tried to zoom them closer with my cellphone before taking the pics (a bit grainy due to the bright sunlight).
I've numbered them on the 3rd photo

Filled the tank again yesterday after Sunday's 147km trip between the game farms.
I kept the odo speed between 60 and 80km/h so as not to scare the animals away.
Consumption according to fuelly.com = 38.1km/l (best tank yet since I purchased the bike) and I was not even trying to see how frugal this bike can be.

Jeez, if I can get 33/34 I would be happy, 38 is just phenomenal.   :thumleft: :thumleft:

I am very surprised with the fuel usage
The consumption is even better than that of the NC750X that I used to own
