Great!  No punctures, breakdowns or falls?  That's how I like to see it.

Look forward to the pics.

And then there is the corner that you run wide and get surprised by our little friend the Aardvark , or rather the holes he dug the night before

And then there were the 2 Vukas and an old scrambler , with pillions going down Ouberg Pass near on the way down to Montagu !
T-Shirts ,shorts and takkies , but out in the sun on a stunning day.

I jumped at the chance to do this ride again and the day did not let us down. What an awesome ride, with great company.

Stunning landscapes, awesome roads, you can't help yourself on this ride, for those who have not ventured out that way it is well worth the visit, it is a long ride but the day goes quick as you eat up the km of stunning gravel highway with a few surprises thrown in.

Pushing past Montague and onto Saggy Stone was well worth it with an awesome lunch and a pint of home brewed. traffic home was a nightmare, i remember why I hate highways.

Lekker!

Do you have a mapsource route for this ?

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

That pic of the blue 660Z in the purple flowers is great, but eish, the colours clash.

Could you not paint it red for that photo ?  ;D

Great RR guys - thanx
