Day 8 (Matroosberg to Knysna) 489km

Was probably one of the coldest evenings I ever experienced, but luckily there was hotwater showers etc. Very nice place to camp: www.matroosberg.com



The closest we came to the darkside was the inside of our tents  :imaposer:










Near Herbetsdale




Jahloepa and his beeg "Transkei" bag




Would do a trip like this again,  just would take a lot less luggage with next time.

really nice variety of bikes  :thumleft:

The 1150 GS did extremely well even in the sand with a pillion. Another very capable scoot was the KLE, the twin got much longer legs than the rest of the thumpers.

Excellent RR & pics ... thanx for sharing ... did a bit of your trip (same & similar routes) in Sept :3some: Camping at the river in Pella was a great experience.

ps sometimes the good 'ol film cameras can still take some of the most awesome pics  :thumleft:   :thumleft:  ... albeit a little grainy.

Great trip guys, MM I was in Sutherland last weekend and saw you DRZ looking all sorry for itself in the garage , hope it is not too serious .  :D

No , not serious at all!! Got brand new coil on Thumper talk and will have it up and running by the weekend and ready to ride!!! :thumleft: I was very lucky, no damage what so ever!!! The meccie tunes me that the engine is in tip top shape ,so I am really stoked that everything has worked out well! Shot KK
