Jmol, I  am so very happy to see you out there again. Awesome trip you did, recognized many roads, having done a fair amount of them after Christmas.
 Best regards to David, really happy he is not doing solo too much, and hope to see you all soon.

Thanks Dorothee.  Yes - David is coming with this week-end although his not a dog yet.

I'm not sure what report I was reading that had this report linked, it is clear to me I stumbled onto a gem of a ride report.

This is one of few reports I've read, and there's been hundreds, that reminds me of areas where I live.

Up around the dam you visited appears to be alpine wilderness.

This report reinforced my dreams of riding your incredibly beautiful country.

JMOL, I think it's time you write another  :deal: :thumleft:
Iím da Yooper, eh and I like to party...

Damn Mericans,  :biggrin:  I saw the rr and started reading just to see later that this report was done donkey years ago.  I almost k@kked my friend out for riding in my back yard without inviting me.    :lol8: :lol8: 

But yes, we do have excellent riding opportunities / spots starting a mere 3km from home.   :deal:

Forgive me, I really enjoyed the RR and felt compelled to let old Jmol know he needs to get his ass in gear and write another  :pot:

Yeah, the riding and camaraderie among you South Africans has me quite impressed.

You wouldn't believe the crazy thoughts I've percolating in my membrain.

I'd like to move to ZA for 6 months, see if I like it.  If I fall in love with the place, which I think I will, if and only if there are like minded riders available often to do more group rides, I would then come back to my country and begin making arrangements for a permanent move there.

I've toured all but a handful of states in my country and provinces in Canada, unfortunately solo as most riders want to be pavement princesses dressed to the nines in HD clothing.  I feel as if it's time to branch out and see what's happening on the other side of the world with people who still get it......off-road riding is simply the best and most pure form of riding for me and I have this burning desire to do more of it, just not alone all the time.

No need asking for any forgiveness, I was only joking.  :thumleft:

But yes, this is one unique country where you can live life to the fullest on a scooter.   :biggrin:  The wife and I have been exploring hundreds of thousand of kilometers in this country and we did not even scrape the surface, so much more to explore.

Whatever you decide and if you do reach our shores, you are most welcome to cabin at our place.  We will take you places that will be embedded in your membrane forever.    :biggrin:    The ball is in your hands.
