Clarens, and 800kms in 6 hours with photo stops everywhere.

Don't laugh  :) Apart from looking the business and eating up the flats and twisties very quickly (and picking up girls), it's a useless long distance missile. That pillion seat was made for size 0 girls going to the cafe, not Oxford soft luggage. As for the bike, too much weight on the wrists, and one sniff of watered down petrol from a klein Free State dorpie and I was lucky to get it home >:(.

Whats the worst that can happen?!?!
