What do you do if you do not have the skill to follow your crazy partner on all the tracks he wants to explore? Downsize. My 17-year-old 650GS, tired of getting bits smashed off it at frequent intervals, has handed the baton on to a young upstart: a new Honda 250L Rally.

Soos julle reeds gelees het uit die vorige blog – Weskus Hokkie Weskus Hemel was die trippie na Die Hel reeds in wording en eintlik klaar beplan. Verblyf was effe van ‘n issue maar die stofpad gode het gekyk na ons en dinge so laat uitwerk soos ek oorspronklik wou ry.

Oh Hell!...What a (Baviaans) trip!

Day 5 - Baviaanskloof

We got ready the next morning to a heavily overcast sky and a light drizzle in the air. Since it had been raining through the night all our gear was still wet, although we had tried to remove most of the mud.

I hope that those on the trip post some pictures.

This was the first off road day ride for 2013 and judging by the amount of names on the list it was going to be very popular as well.

At 35 names I stopped counting as I was sure that there would be lots of cancellations, as there often are. I was notified of some cancellations and we finally ended with 30 bikes on the Ride.

I had changed the departure time to enable us to enjoy our lunch (snacks) and a swim on a farm in the Ladismith district.

Relax! This is NOT a trip report, just a quick mention that the route via Ouberg Pass (Montagu), Anysberg, Rouxpos, Seweweekspoort to Oudtshoorn, followed by the Swartberg Pass to Prince Albert is in superb riding condition.

Warren and Natalie setup their second "4x4" weekends away, this time close to home in the Agterkliphoogte Valley outside Robertson. As I'm trying to get as much riding in as possible, I eagerly jumped on board (especially after their last Buffelspoort trip was such a success). I signed up my wife Sandy, without our her consultation although she didnt complain when I told her she was booking the weekend off and coming with me.

So, ever since the beginners ride with Andy a couple of weeks back, I have had this itch to get back to the gravel. 
Well, last week presented the oppertunity for just such a trip, I was in need a break, before I go postal on my co-workers. Friday afternoon after lunch I set off to McGregor....

Siende dat daar gee “trip report” is vir die “Roadies” se Suterland Winter Trip nie, het ek besluit om dit te skryf. Maar ek is nie so gemaklik in Engels nie, so julle sal maar net tevrede moet wees met Afrikaans.

Vrydagaand 17:00: Die panniers is klaar gepak met elke moontlike warm kledingstuk wat in my kas is. Hulle is klaar vas gesit op die motorfiets.
