Excellent RR

We followed and lived vicariously through you guys

I know that “loop” well and your RR has spurred me on to do it again soon

Pity about the illness at the end, but I am so happy that you enjoyed the trip so much Canzius.

Also happy that you did Ouberg as well, so spectacular.

Great RR :thumleft:
The Loop from Southerland to Middelpos, Gannaga and Ouberg is one of the best Rides. Thank you NK and other Contributors.

All part of the story Danie…. Thank you! Was saying to Amsterdam that this was probably my favourite trip to date! Mostly because of the incredible riding terrain. It felt like I’d left the country to go ride in some Middle Eastern desert

Really sad that your trip ende prematurely, hope we ride together again soon!

I will be back for sure.

That night I start feeling very ill and spent a large portion of the night on the floor next to the toilet...

I never knew, sorry to hear that! When reading an ominous feeling crept up expecting to lead to you having caught Covid, but luckily you were spared this  :thumleft:

You must have caught a serious cold that day, welding mitts & all .... perhaps also pack a plastic bag like I do (& Marc)? I donned mine in Sutherland and this helped to fight off that biting wind, keeping me more comfy.
On this, I forgot to pack my long-sleeve T-shirts for this trip, and arriving at Cederberg Oasis that first night I was downright cold! Marc & Wayne to the rescue, with a warm inner & long-sleeve T ..... gents, know that without these I'd have frozen somewhere en route! My genuine thanks for lending me these, I'd have been looking for a Pep Stores otherwise everywhere along the way  :P :thumleft:

This was an awesome trip indeed, with (some new) friends in a remote barren part of our country I'd not seen much of, and definitely not in this way yet!
Noneking, a little apprehensive about his big bike (remember Amsterdam, which also owns a 890 Rally, choose his 701 for reason of "sand", ditto Marc who owns and adores his 950SE!) before the start, showed anyone how sand was to be ridden! Dunno, his tackle probably is on a par with BB's, he's unashamedly fast at times - and no, Marc & Amsterdam are by no means slouches. Kamanya, better invite these okes to Atlantis at some stage....  ;)
Henry mastered his 990 well too, I still find it amazing where some guys put these big things in to and over!
Dan will ride anywhere well, smooth and without any drama - a real pity that his chain cut his trip short: next time better please!  :thumleft:
Wayne screwed up a rib and is now ordered off his bike for a few weeks :-[ Sorry mater, but we'll meet again, and there will be something sent to CO for your attention  :P

Amsterdam and Marc both, thank you for organizing this trip, in various ways an eye opener!
Stunning landscapes and terrain to ride in, keeping everyone on his toes for most of the day, exactly what the doctor ordered.
Thanks to all for making this a special trip indeed!  :thumleft:  :thumleft:

As mens 5 in die groep is maak jy net elke 5de hek oop, tensy jy natuurlik fotos wil neem van elke wat deur elke hek ry...
