In search of BREEDSNEK
« on: October 30, 2006, 01:39:25 pm »
Okay, so as I made mention in Planning tours, it was my intention to finds breedsnek - even if it meant going solo. Well, thats what happened - I went solo!

Left home just gone 06h30 and headed out to Harties, where I would comence my attempt from!!! Needless to say, heading out there was an experience all of its own! Almost got taken out by some clown on a Ducati that over cooked his corner, and decided to take a good look into the whites of my eyes!!!!

Headed into Harties via the tunnel......

From there got onto the wall, but decided to stop and take a look over the wall as well as the water side... The water looked like pea soup!!! :shock:




From there I headed out towards Hekpoort. proceeded to get lost in the maise of dirt roads heading here there and every where.....



After dropping aff a lowlevel crossing back onto the dirt road, I managed to break my tail light lense....german quality...?? :shock:

Decided to head back home after spending a good 4.5hrs playing on the yellow beast. First time that I spent time on dirt, and was totally impressed with the ease of riding such a heavy bike in gravel!

Next time, I hope to find Breedsnek........ :oops:  :D  :oops:
