Baviaans by Suzuki

I should have a bumper sticker on my bike that says "My other car is a Suzuki".  This report describes a part of our second honeymoon trip to Hogsback, where we rode through the Baviaankloof in our Suzuki Jimny.

We rode from Cape Town to Willowmore along the R62, with lunch in Barrydale at the Country Pumpkin.  The food and service there is always great, and the owner rides a BMW and looks after bikers.

At Willowmore, we checked in to The Willow Historical Guest House.

Short and hectic

A short report on an even shorter trip. And, on top of that, I rate it dark deep red.

Monday afternoon at 12h30 I went over Sir Lowries Pass, right through a storm that I will remember for a long time.

My wife & I returned from a weekend away.  The bike was heavily laden with heavy side bags, plenty tools in the top box and a pillion.
All the way from Heidelberg I experienced the most unsettling very strong gusts of wind, mostly from the side.
It was quite manageable but I had to be very vigilant all the way.
