I usually go to Tolbos for breakfast but I think that Die Padstal wil be my new spot  ;D
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.

Looking at that grey Eastern Cape tar, and the bridge over the river, How many times did I not run over it on my 1100R and later the 1150GS.

Bliksem , How I miss that now.

Our winter is just seeming to come to an end now.

I fitter a BOS full stainless and Carbon fibre setup to my 1200GS in December and did about 35km test ride. Nothing since, because they grit the roads here with coarse seasalt and sand to prevent slipping when the roads ice up and temperatures drop below 4'C.

Rain never stopped me riding, but salt on the roads is a bugger.

Oh, and die poppie by die restaurant.... hmmmmm ?

It's without doubt the best ride report for some time to come out of the Eastern Cape ....OK ..the Blond at Padlanks did it for me.

I'm sure she is the girl who insisted that I take her cellphone number when I was there in January and the lady behind the bar and the chef and the car guard..... wait know i know they thought I would get lost and may need to call someone...what was I thinking.

Great report ...respect
