Dis nou wat ek 'n regte biker noem, selfs nie eens die sneeu het jou 'n kar laat vat nie, wow, foto's is stunning, maar jy moes jou gat af gevries het.  Dankie vir mooi foto's

I`m back  :mwink:

Power came on about half an hour ago  ::)

Its kinda chaos here but seems to be coming right.

Was in town earlier for sight seeing and there was no cash at any of the ATM machines in town, so I opened a tab at the pub  :biggrin:

Will post pics of the chaos and damage later when the signal here stabilises, its been more off than on.

For those wanting to come and see the snow, I suggest you wait a few days, the roads are still very iced up.

Yesterday when I went to town it took me 10min just to get from my flat to the tar road, today was a bit better.

I must also add that the D606 front tire I bought from Wolweseun is brilliant in snow !  :ricky:

It was alot easier to ride in the stuff with a knobbly front tire, just wish I had a D606 back tire, then it would be fun and games all the way !  :3some:

Still the 25th . . .

I decided to go to town, took me 10 minutes from my place to the tar road, thats about 200 or 300 meters in distance. The Mitas E-07 on the rear is a great tire but is not made for snow, the Dunlop D606 that I have on the front is a real treat in the snow and mud  :ricky:

Just might get a proper knobbly for the back  ::) ( Mitas C-02  :3some: )

One has to be careful of falling ice and snow near buildings and trees. The one pic at the garage shows this clearly.

Last two pics are from when I got home.

I`m not scared to ride in the snow unlike some people  :pot:

I went to school in Cathcart. When the wind blows off the Winterberg even ice cubes shiver.  Hogsback must be spectacular. Some nights I was certain that the dorm walls were made of chicken wire. Bliksem it was cold
