Cool.   :thumleft:

Katbergpas is 'n nagmerrie in die nat, paar weke terug gedoen in die nat met 'n pillion, al verskil, ons het opgery en nie af nie.
As jy eers bo is, is die uitsig die moeite werd.

Dankie vir almal wat gelees het... en ja dit was iets spesiaals aangesien my pa my die AG 100 gegee het toe 15 word en sodoende my bike liefde gekweek het... Hy het self op sy dae n GS 450 gehad en so nou en dan het ek die ding gehotwire en Aliwal toe geglip vir n joyride  :mwink:

Hiers die AG, ek en my pa.... maar n skamele 12 jaar oud...... was redelike kamera sku maar darem in tarentaal geklits daai dag ;)
oor B..erge en RIV..iere sal ons ry,
mag dit altyd tog so bly....

Brilliant.  I imagine that it must have been a very rewarding experience.

This way is much better than a cemetery.

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
