Day 5 started out early as well, well for us all it seemed early.
Kosie was going to take us through the 7 mountain passes between George and Knysna, before meeting up with some more Wilddogs in Knysna at the Wimpy for Breakfast.
Wimpy Breakfasts seem to be the staple of many of these guys.

We left Kosies place after a quick coffee, then filled the bikes, which took about 30 minutes as the card readers at the pumps were playing up.
Eventually getting away, we hit the road past Saasveld into the forestry roads..... HEAVENLY !!
Shaded dirt roads, some of which Deon and I remembered from our time as kids when my dad used to take us for drives through there, some of these roads were still the "National Roads" when we were growing up 45 years ago.

Loads of bendy bits.
Some tricky bits and many rivers and old bridges gave us the opportunity to really open our eyes, ears and noses..... the senses come alive when you do these back roads, so much more interesting than motorway blasts (which have a place when you need to connect the dots)

Came down a winding bit of road and came around a corner to find Kosie relaxing on the bridge, breakfast in hand ....

After this stop we continued on dirt and bendy roads, making the smile on our faces go wider and wider, till we hit another tar connecting road, leading to the next pass.

We were meant to be meeting Jupiter later in the morning, as he would be joining us through Baviaans Kloof on his "new" or latest bike.
Seems he could not wait, so he joined us much earlier......

Then of course we carried on..... toward breakfast.

Unfortunately, due to the lawless nature of the new generation, signs like these are the norm in many areas, and in some areas the signs are not even put up.... people just know they need to stay alert.

After many miles of smiles we got to Knysna where some more WD's were waiting, had brekkie, then some of us carried on to do some more forestry roads and passes.

More in a bit......on the next section after the Wimpy Brekkie.
