One of the most beautifull chunks of tarmac, unfortunately the camera only does some justice.

Nice pics!  :thumleft:

And thanks for making a rider - far from home! - jealous and yearning to get out on two wheels...  ;)

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Have just returned from a super ride through Caledon , Hermanus, Betty,s bay and Clarence drive , what a day ! great pics
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)

As soon as my Cobra is finished I'm trailering her down for a workout on that very stretch of road! What a wonderful upgrade from the road I got to know in the 70's and 80's diving for perlemoen & allekreukel along that coast!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, its an electrical problem!

I went past Drummers just before nine, on my way to Gansbaai. Had a late lunch there on my return.
Was a stunning day to be out riding!
