Eastern Cape Quicky
« on: December 28, 2010, 08:37:04 am »
To end a wonderfull Xmas weekend we (my wife and I) decided to, on Monday the 27 Dec, do a 340 km roundabout trip from King William's Town to Coombs, backroads to Port Alfred, a sort tar road over the Fishriver and then again backroads all the way back to King. 

My girl is 10 today

Caught up with these guys in Port Alfred.  The KTM at the back is a beauty.  (One day, one day when I'm big)

Some vid clips, it's the first time I'm loading vid clips, will see what comes out.

Almost when for a mud bath, but the Mitas helped me out.

Great report. Aren't we lucky to live in the Eastern Cape?
It's a friggin' motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you scared every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary Mc
