3 Day trip to Cederberg and Tankwa Karoo - South Africa.
« on: August 08, 2020, 08:24:47 PM »
Took the Friday to do a 3 day trip into the Cederberge about 250km from Cape Town.
Did just over 1000km over the three days, most on dirt roads.
With 20km left to do on the second day we stopped to make a video and noticed the GS had a hole in the radiator. We were about 100km away from having reception so had to make a plan. I had some Pratley Putty and we managed to plug the hole.

Other that that we had a smooths trip.

Im not used to fixing bikes; I ride a Tiger......., what a classic statement.
Another fantastic video, well done Francois.
Ive said it before, youre a very, very lucky man; long may it (you and your mates that is) continue.
Stay safe.

mooi man :-)

maybe for the benefit of our non-Afrikaans/Dutch speaking friends on this forum, I would like to translate the sign advertising a local delicacy right at the end of the video - "sheep's head - properly cleaned with teeth brushed and all the trimmings" :-)

you haven't lived until you've had sheep's head or offal washed down with a few pints of beer  :418:

I tried Sheep's head once, ended up eating bread and jam.  :015:
