Short and hectic

Points: 3

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.

Bloukranspas - n Prentjiesreport

Points: 5

Vir jare al het ek heen en terug gery na die OosKaap, en elke keer myself voorgeneem om deur die Bloukranspas te ry. Onlangs het ek besluit nou of nooit. En wat 'n lekker ervaring!

Ongelooflik mooi en rustig. Kos vir die siel.

Elke keer wanneer jy stop is daar 'n besondere stilte wat mens net in 'n bos vind. Mens hoor selfs die water kabbel oor die klippe daar onder in die kloof.

Why do we ride? Why do we breathe?

Why do we ride? Why do we breathe?

As they say, I am the one who has the guts, the stupid one, the third wheel…I am the pillion also known as Paparazzi.
