Last Business Trip dDay 4 and 5
« on: October 23, 2006, 04:59:20 pm »
From Niew Bethesda it was on to Graaf Reinet. Again this was an awesome ride first thing in the morning. It was then tar roads to Aberdeen and onto Uniondale.....(saw the road leading to the year end bash...if I had more time I would have done some recce work).

I now had the great pleasure of again doing the Prince Alfred pass. The last time I rode the pass the other way from Plett to Uniondale. This time I also took the other option of heading straight down to Knysna instead of Plett.











I was almost disappointed when it all came to an end in Knysna. From here it was tar through to Mossel Bay where I stayed the night. Friday morning is my last day. I am itching to get home and very hungover. I therefore opt for high speed sprint back to Cape Town.

I got home at about 13H30 and by 14H30 I had repacked the bike and with Kerri as pillion I was off for a weekend of camping at the Yserfontein caravan park. I was more tyhan a little tired on Monday at the office I must add.

Anyhow...thats my story and I hoped you enjoyed.
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

Hi C.O.

Nice report. I did the Knysna to Uniondale and back to Plett thing last month when I rode from Cape Town back to Pmb. It was a very enjoyable ride.


I just wish that someonefrom the forum had advised me to go via Baviaanskloof when I posted a request asking forum members for advice on routes to take. Oh well too late now.

Thanks for the pics.

Jon
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Mmmmmm,If my memory serves me well, I am sure that not so long ago I read a report submitted by none other than BV of an awesome BUSINESS TRIP in and around the low veld. :shock:  
But alas....all the surveys are complete and now it is back to life in the boring lane. Trust me none of you should envy this job any further. :crybaby:
