Kruispad - Bottelary area anti bikers
« on: February 15, 2012, 06:56:06 pm »
Today I came home from Stellenbosch and got onto the enkelspoor next to the road and rode on it till Bottelary Road. Then enkelspoor from Devon Valley till Corobrix. Then i got on another enkelspoor by "The Palms" and rode that till Kruispad. Then i got flagged down by a man in a mazda or ford bakkie and accused me of riding there everyday on a green bike.

He warned me that the people there (Kruispad area) are taking photos of the bikes that ride there and send then send it to the cops and the people get a R1000 fine. I asked him based on what do they get fined and he carried on about the R1000, so I still do not know. He then carried on and told me that a guy got fined last week for riding along there (Kruispad and Jakaranda Street).

Ok so I am fine not to ride past the horse farm between Kruispad and Jakaranda Street.

So my questions:
1 - Has anyone been stopped by this guy and got this story from him before?
2 - Is he talking bullshit about the fine? (I am only a student and do not have that money lying around for kak.)
3 - Has anyone gotten a fine there yet?

I've seen full offroad bikes riding there, so that might be it?

Never had a hassle on the XR

Is that road not on private property perhaps?

Why do you let a person in a bakkie flag you down?

If its Private property there must be a fence and a sign...according to the fence act.....

Your bike is registered and you have a valid license, next time just smile and wave...smile and wave......

Clearly, anyone that rides a KTM should get fined.

I think that I will try that route on my yamaha, and see what happens.
It is time.

I was stopped on that road the other day, and the farmer praised me for my wisdom of choice. Someday you'll own a Yamaha.

He tried stopping me four times, then I got gatvol and wanted to know what is his case.

Just to the KTM haters, there are two yamahas standing at our house, WR250F (Best enduro bike ever built) and a YZ250 2T. If yamaha built a bike of similar caliber to the ATM 640, I would rather ride the yamaha.

Yep, I've been stopped by him before when riding (slowly) my 660Z past the front of the horse paddocks opposite the Kuilsriver golf course. He spun me exactly the same story.
It's total BS , I live nearby and I've never seen a cop stop a biker there. The old ballie is just trying to use scare tactics because he's too old to moer us  :D That area is all part of the future road reserve so I can't see it being illegal. If a cop does try stop you just duck into one of the farms and gas it.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!

I dont hate KTM's!






I pity them.



But really,thanks for the 'heads up' and now I know that when the bakkie flags me down, I need to return the wave-and ride away!

Bakkie looks similar to the one in the attached pic. The one the old man drives is white and I am not sure if it is a mazda or ford (they look similar)

accused me of riding there everyday on a green bike.

I've seen that green bike numerous times on the "tweespoor" next to Bottealry Road between the Kraaifontein turnoff and Kruispad.

It is a KDX and the guy wears full body armour and white boots................and he is going full
speed and not holding back  :D
