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.

I couldn't help but notice the KTM 990 & TW 200 in the background. Certainly an odd combination bikes on the same ride!!............Moral of the story: ALL ADV riders enjoy a good pub!

How about the "highest pub in Africa" Sani Top?

I was at Kapps in 82 / 83 we drove up for the Octoberfest, got our dates wrong, missed it not that it materred, do they still have the Battleur in the corner and the python skins above the bar?
When is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
