Jou fotos is asemrowend!  Ek hou veral van die twee waar David jou in die stof los en die een van jou bike daarna.  As ek sulke tonele sien, voel dit vir my asof die Liewen Heer die trip spesiaal geseŽn het.  Ek kan nie wag vir die res nie. 

Baie dankie Nannie.  Dankie vir die kompliment.  Ek waardeer dit.  Moet se ons het daardie foto so beplan, maar met die oog was dit soveel mooier.  Die plan was ook dat hy daar "weg spin"sodat ons 'n groter effek op hom in die stof ook kon kry, maar nou ja - boys will be boys  ;D  Dit het toe nie so lekker gewerk nie - die spinnery  :-\

Eventually we ended on the R400 and this road just goes on and on and on.  David is a much faster rider than what I am so I told him to carry on in the meantime and so every now and then, we meet each other.  



Here I stopped, drank some water and just listened to the sound of nothing.  It was so quite - what a pleasure!!



How many families lived in this farmhouse??  Maybe I must ask how many generations ????



I think they are still using this church hall - I might be wrong



Oom Theuns se Winkel next to the N9 between Cookhouse & Paterson.  The plan was to meet David here, but the lady told me that she saw no bike and immediately I thought David is lost or is lying somewhere in a sloot.  He has no Cellphone - how on earth will I get hold of him again I thought??

Later 2 farm labourers walked in and they said that they saw a bike on the road going toward Riebeeck East.  Thanks goodness - David is alive and he'll wait for me.  I had a nice cold Fanta and sami and off I go.



The chuch in Riebeeck East



We made it!!  In Grahamstown we were offerred a free breakfast at the local Wimpy because of our looks  :imaposer:  :imaposer:

Thanks to you guys.  It was a pleasure for going on this trip.  I enjoyed every single moment and although I mentioned the costs in the begininning, the whole trip was priceless.

I bought a set of tyres for R500 on the forum and the rear tyre has to be replaced - money well spend  ;D

To you all - thanks for travelling with and all the comments.  Much appreciated.

Until next time - be safe.

Jaco

Nice ride report, sitting here in Malawi for the next 9 months, I think of the roads and the area and when I see the photos I think of the times I have ridden there.

Thanks for sharing.

With regards the water crossings, it is the same story with a car, bakkie. Don't enter too fast, don't ride into the bow wave which is in front of you and don't stop as the water will surround you and water will be sucked in. That is why some bikes made it and other not. Same bikes yet some suffered and other not.

Just something I learned at 4x4 training and also at Country Trax when doing water crossings.

As ek daai watersproei so kyk - het die bike nie effe vinnig daar deurgery nie? Soortvan om 'n mooi foto te kan maak...  :peepwall:

That was the idea. Did not drown here though. Only later at a shorter but deaper one which we took quite easy. Maybe it was a build up of a few done like this one!!! Was a MOER of a lot of fun though!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

At the 2nd last "big" watercrossing, Spoedvark went through - very slow and bang bang - nothing.  David went - and the same.  Bikes are dead as mossies.  Mr+P went through and his Dakar just bam bam through the water.  I went - and came out safe the other side.  Here is a kiekie of the crossing - don't know the name.



No problem - we have plug spanner, BUT THEY DIDN'T FIT  >:(

Luckily Spoedvark's family was coming from the opposite side and after Mr+P and I went forward to see if the were close, they came and help us.  One of their bikes also drowned at the crossing.



If it wasn't for the guy at the right we would have been there for much longer - thanks my friend.  Cannot remember your name.



After fitted a kreepy krauly pipe John (from Bloemfontein) told his wife to climb and off the go.



This is the crossing just before the gate on Willowmore's side.  Neville and I went through it 3 times and after what happened to the rest, we were a bit "versigtig" going through.



David doesn't want to take a change and he and Spoedvark is taking the bike for a walk  :ricky:







In die mik vd moerbeiboom  :biggrin:



Oppisite the baviaans craft shop is a cafe(??) where I bought a roosterkoek & a Fanta.  They have these dolls in their garden.  Strange





After we filled up at Willowmore, we left for Prins Albert by tar.  Due to time, we didn't do the loop ChrisL told me to do, but I have to go back to do it ChrisL.

My biggest worry in life, is that if I die before my Wife, she will sell my biking gear based on the prices that I told her I had paid for them.
