Nee, tussen Tzaneen en Lydenburg!! Teerpaaie obviously OK maar die grondpaaie is n redelike uitdaging!! Nou vir 3dae son gehad. Bietjie uitgedroog maar goed verspoel :thumleft:

Reminds me of my trip in the rain the other night on my KLR from Lephalale to Brits, 275km in the rain....cost me R1400 in the end for a rim repair...pothole $%#@!!! But yes, not wise to do long distance in the rain especially @ night but there was a real time emergency back home and I had no choice. Glad it all had a fairlyhappy ending, I can recoment BG wheels in Pta North forrim repairs, spotless and perfectly balanced

Riding in the rain can be a challenge.Especially if there is wind.But it is worth the experience.But I have never done it at knight.

That used to be my favourite riding on my road bike, at night in the rain. Loved to lay behind the screen and look at the raindrops charging into the headlight at a almost horizontal angel.
