Ooooh come on now, don't keep me in suspenders, I look utterly ridiculous in them!
Plus, my reputation's oot the window now with this confession, hell, can't face my friends anymore........ tell us who these 2 are please?
Hardly a state secret Mike so out with it, come on, I can't be the only one wearing said suspenders...  :P

Guess?

Honda Quest Day 6

As with Murray, a strong dose of Voltarins, some rest and heaps of Vasbyt, Hein Kumm was, much to his partner Hugo Minnaarís relief, back on the bike. 

9:45pm was when they returned last night. 12 hours on the bike for the day! Itís a testament to the all-round ability of the big Twin that, the morning was hard-core off-road. Afternoon was flowing, quick twin track and the evening, gravel backroads around the mountains of Kamieskroon under the stars. A major reason why itís rare that people will travel on a bike after dark off-road is because lighting is the issue. There are no such concerns at all for the Africa Twin. Its lights were a revelation for even the seasoned riders. Itís massively reassuring to ride into a wide tunnel of clear light thrown far down the road.

There was a biting wind that accompanied them too. Quite unexpectedly, the support crew met them for a very appreciated Hot Coffee and confectionaries. The juxtaposition of dusty, hardcore men, ready for anything to be thrown at them with a smile, stopping on the edge of a starlit escarpment for some of the sweeter things in life to appreciate the beauty of the land, isnít a bad metaphor for the Honda Africa Twin. It does many things outrageously well.

By design, after yesterdayís marathon day, today was shorter but with tricky navigation. There are stunning hardly used backroad tracks that connect little used communities such as Twee-Riviere, Kheis, Karas and the Lankloof valley. Whilst we travelled through them, its apparent the rest of the world seems to pass them by. However, one stop next to an immaculately kept graveyard, spoke volumes about the people in that humble village.
Honda Questís focus is on the journey, the dream, the true Adventurer. Itís far bigger than the individual. Inspired by this small-town journey, a challenge for the contestants is to suggest a humanitarian project they want to implement in their homeplaces. The winner, voted by all crew and contestants will receive funding from the group as a whole. They will have their helmet time on tomorrows ride to put that together.

Tonight, we sleep in one of these miniscule communities called Uitspan. Just outside the few houses that make up the place is a field with small junior school. Itís just a tiny hall with a small stage and out houses. Perfect!

Dave Gouws took the stage to present on the Incaís
Heindri Visser followed him with the Kruger National Park
Later in the evening, the contestants also watched all their videos up until Day 5. None of them had seen any of them yet. Being in Honda Quest is a huge undertaking, seeing and hearing themselves too, many were moved to tears.

Tomorrow is the longest day of Honda Quest.

The photograper, Will Venter from Kalon is extremely talented. I guess the reason @Hardy de Kock got him for the job.

Check out his work on Facebook also, some nice pics of the Masai recently  :drif:

Unrelated, but why did Camel exclusively use Landrovers for their annual Camel Challenge?
If they'd use Landcruisers it wouldn't have been a challenge anymore!

They tried, too easy - so they made the switch to LR so competitors would have to drink their own piss
