Shaun and I Motorcycling around South Africa
« on: September 17, 2021, 03:41:47 pm »
Hi Dogs

Recently returned from a trip around the country .....I did share it on the WD FB page but for those who may be interested in following it .......here goes

I rode my GSA up to Pretoria to visit my daughter knowing I would meet up with my pal Shaun for an extended ride afterwards and we took some nice scenic back roads....also places I hadnt been in a while plus my first visit to Verneukpan.......Im always riding around it

Also we encountered the sand monster head on and it beat us up and spat us out the other side

All in all did 4200km on this trip

I been doing a lot of gopro stuff lately and its easier and nicer for me to creat a visual memory of the trip mostly for my own use

so i will share the story in 5 episodes with links attached if u feel like following our ride

please note the bmw gps is shit i use this as a last resort but my main form of planning is a simple tracks for africa map

so i have no saved routes
i tend to make my own impulsive descisions and routes and i find this adds to the adventure

any way here goes

 O0

Never hesitate to take that ride. Ride safe, ride often and ride far. The soul demands it.

Great videos!  After SA wasn't taken off the UK's Red List yesterday (something of a disappointment) I sent the last one to our friends who will be travelling with us in November and December to remind them that all the hassle will be worth it. :ricky:

Nice Vid # 1, when Allen and I went through there two years ago there was nothing happening at all. The first house you stopped at seems to have had some work/neglect to the front door  ... I think we parked both bikes inside it for a photo shot.
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...
