Trailrider, this RR is one big sensory overload, and guess what? It is a virgin road for me, and I am as good as on my way!!

Excellent RR, Trailrider!  :thumleft:

To be perfectly honest, I haven't been enjoying your ride reports of late - like Honda's latest comfy chopper, or the "Hardly Ableson" outride, etc, etc. I don't blame you, coz I'm sure you were burning the candle at both ends with regards to work. This report puts you right back in the game!!
I'm so keen to ride through the Knysna forest - not so much the gravel roads, but more the long forgotten tweespoor paths with a bit of stealth camping thrown in between. And it's virgin territory for me!  :mwink:
Next time I'm in that area, I might just need to call on the knowledge and guidence of Asterix, Obelix & Trailrider.

Swartbaard! dis nogals nostalgies om n RR te lees van n plek wat n mens goed ken. En boonop die mense ook.
Miskien moet jy/ons iets reel soontoe.

GREAT RR

Jirre!!  TR, jy weet net hoe om 'n ou se bek j@gs te maak vir nog 'n lang trippie in daai geweste  :drif:

As always, a great RR, and one that's on my to-do-list now.

I just wish I had more time and bucks to tell the boss to "stuff-it" for a while, and pack up the TA with myself and Atigun and hit the South Cape area again

Cheers  :thumleft:
