Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.

Hey Drazil

Cool pics, I enjoyed that trip, rain, hail and the works. I had heavy mist for a solid 150km on the way home from Kokstad to Cato ridge in the dark. Got home about 20:30 Sunday night but in one piece. My butt was angry with me after some 1046km on the road. Damn, it was a long ride but glad I went. Hope to join you again sometime soon in the future.

Till then...safe riding  :ricky:
