images is difficult with the gprs bandwidth. small thumbnails might work. you would have loved todays riding- not yesterdays though. did u had rain back to ct? i'll tell you what george, this ec is made for biking hey? michnus you guys are spoilt with perfect roads and trails, great scenary and little wind- when we die, just hope the ds heaven is half as good as the ec, then we'll be fine.



cheers

youre joking right? rain? no. we have frikin tropical cyclone de moina from before PE (where the branches of palm trees were being blown flat) all the way to heidelberg, where i changed route onto the R62 to escape the shit.

the KTM, at 150, with the panniers and Hilde and myself, actually lost speed in 6th gear.... the wind was ferocious. at one stage, we experienced cloud burst where all vision became null. i shat myself as i was pushing it hard to get through the rain.

because i wanted to sit at 150km/h fully loaded, and the shit wind and heavy rains conditions, the bike did 8.5 kays a litre at one stage boet as i constantly had to drop to 5th and then to 6th to keep the speed. thats the worst i have ever heard  :shock:  :shock:  :shock: thank goodness that lasted only for around 200 kays worth... then the mileage "picked up" to sit at around 13.....


lets say it was heaven to arrive at home after 1000 kays of that shit and sit in a bath..... and have a dop

just arrived in cradock. f-all hot water at hotspring. did about 400 kms, of which nearly 100 gravel. gravel was dry enough to get the speed up to about 110, then you'll hit mud, interesting....

will plan tomorrows route later, me and rudeasy bought a shitload of meat to braai tonight

cheers

ps btw we're planning to spend either friday or sat night at the hot springs in either carlitzdorp or the one near ronnies sex shop near barrydale (if anyone can post the number for me to reserve accommodation, it would be appreciated) - who of the ct crowd will join? warning, we do smell a bit
