The trial for May is at the Elgin Country Club on 20th May.  The venue is great for an outing to watch or ride some trials with the whole family.  The country club has a restaurant and bar in a beautiful setting.

First ride on the Rally: going Postal (and other by-ways)

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.

Looking for Gravel

03/03/2018 – Looking for gravel


Seeing that we are planning a Lesotho trip in April the need to “get the Gravel legs out” had me looking at some local gravel routes on Saturday morning. As this was a very spur of the moment ride I was going to go solo.


I threw the Dustriders hoist on the back – just 4 in case!  Fortunately not needed on the day. Some ice-cold water in the top box and a energy bar if I needed that and the preparation was complete.


Baviaanskloof Kareedouw side entry

Points: 3

I follow the motto of work hard, play hard. This means that I’ve only managed to keep up to date with some of my 2- or 3-day trip ride reports; ignoring the day escapades and sadly neglecting the rides that served as highlights to my year.

Another motto I follow: rather late than never. So here it is, over a year late. A 4-person 6-day adventure to Baviaanskloof and back, including the infamous and hair-raising side-entry from Kareedouw. This is the scariest route I have tackled to date.

ATGATT... Me? Naahh!

Points: 4

Once you get into riding, ATGATT means everything. ALL THE GEAR ALL THE TIME! Slogans like "Be Safe, Not Sorry", or "Rather sweat to death than bleed to death" keep most on the straight and narrow. As I say, most...

After a tiring week I put my phone off to sleep-in this morning, something I never do - that is, phone off or sleeping late. Just after 8am I hear my dad knocking and walking in (I was up at 6 to open up for the dogs, but went back to bed). My mom, dad and sister wanted to know if I wanted to join them for a ride.
