Between Keimouth and Kobb-inn, 94km,5hours, offroad only,long wayround can be done with DS bikes, awesome place.

Late afternoon at Kobb-inn

Bushmans river mouth, this is the floatingbar that is a permanent fixture. Between Port Alfred and PE.

This shipwreck is still on the beech at Boknes near Bushmans river mouth.

Hey Michnus

Awesome place that, my in-laws used to stay in Bokness, some really nice DS roads around there. Also spent many a night on the floating restuarant/bar. Nice people in that part of the world. Just don't do it in December, Kenton on Sea is right there and it is full of BMW X5's flying around on the dust roads.....

Man, I did not know there were so many X5's in the SA, or all of them in Kenton, but luckily the plague is just December.  The Eastern Cape is really still untouched, and that is excellent for DS riding.
This is near Kei river up stream.

I am English. :lol:

I just happen to have lived in Oz since 1976.

I still have a Brit passport.

Never bothered changing over to Aussie citizenship.
It's just a piece of paper invented by Governments and Politicians. :roll:

Oz is like the UK with better weather, prettier women, nicer beaches and more open countryside.
Aussie pubs are woeful (no character, just places to drink in) and the speed limits suck.  :twisted:
