We've done a couple of rides into the
We picked a beautiful day to ride too.
It was to be me, LGF, Clinton and Sir Gravellot on this ride. Sir Gravellot:
We started to ride higher & higher to see the view Eisbein and I bragged about last week.
This was quite a steep incline, but LGF & the KTM handled it beautifully.
My trusty steed
What a view
That's one happy rider! You can almost see the grin!
This is the spot where Eisbein and I wondered which way to go. We took the high road. Today we took the other...
Time for some trailriding: Mud, stones, tree trunks etc.
Being here makes it all worth while
Every so often we'd cross the river. We stopped and had some water to drink here. The water is ice cold and tastes as sweet as wine. This truly is the land of milk and honey.
Next up was a very steep & rocky uphill
LGF's KTM handling the situation beautifully – this man can ride!
We were riding and riding and did not want to turn around, would you?
You know KTM's got the grin factor when even the rider riding behind the KTM can't stop grinning.
We were running out of daylight. None of us have been on these roads before and we did not know exactly where we were. The road did seem to start heading in the general direction we came from...
At this stage we had to decide – are we going to backtrack, or follow the road and see where it leads? Decisions decisions.
But not before we admired this waterfall. I wonder how many people have seen this before?
We bravely decided to carry on. And then, about a km down the road we happened upon this little technical piece of rocky road where a "driffie" used to be and I knew exactly where we were! Surprisingly this amazing piece of road turned out to be a circular route!
And what a route it is...
Nothing was going to stop us today…
Light was fading, but we were close to the farm. The road here was graded and in good condition. We were riding along enjoying the scenery, happy about our accomplishments for the day. It's when you relax like this...
I suddenly heard a sickening sound behind me. A quick glance in the mirror confirmed my fear. The KTM went down hard.
Luckily we had a paramedic (Sir Gravellot) and a photographer (Me) close at hand.
LGF had some sore ribs, but he was well enough to give the camera the bird
O well, alls well that ends well
Thanks guys for a remarkable ride!Forum ride report and comments here
