Setting off on a little 3 day ride. 1000 miles in total down to the Baviaans kloof in the Eastern Cape.

Also trying my Cee baleys screen for the 1st time. Not sure if i like it.

Welcome to my neck of the sticks .

Baviaanskloof used to be stomping grounds .
I am from Port Elizabeth and enjoyed going to Baviaanskloof on my Yamaha TT600 and Africa Twin , back in the 90s . It is awesome riding the roads . Whenever I go back home , I take my wife and kids AND everyone else in my Land Rover up to stay for a night or 2 . They have some nice sand trails . Make sure you go to J- Bay as well .

There is a nice stretch of road near Oesterbaai . Suited for the 950 . Wide open road . Do yourself a favour and take the Langkloof . Awesome little towns , friendly people and just nice for cruising along .

Talking Yip . Throttle pinned WIDE OPEN .

I tend to agree . I can see the bike fishtailing over those whoops pinned wide open 100 + miles an hour .

RESULT - BIG ASS GRIN .

Its actually a kolpin tank. 1.5g if i recall. Tested it and luckily no leaks, so for the money i guess its not a bad piece of kit. I have not made use of it though.

My friend, I sure hope it works well, but there ain't no way that thing was designed for its looks!

Over two weeks ago in New York, we crated the bike up for shipment to Iceland. When we got to the IcelandAir Cargo office, we were told that the crate wasn't supplied. We phoned a few local companies, and they wanted close to US$1,000 just for a wooden box! We decided to visit a nearby Home Depot, purchase some lumber and build our own. We spent $120 for wood and Paula contracted an foreign man who was looking for work to deliver the wood to the cargo depot, 5km away, for $30. Halldór, the IcelandAir Cargo employee who was organizing the shipment of the motorcycle, brought his cordless drill in for us to use, and Paula and I spend a day building our crate.

After a two-week wait, the motorcycle just arrived in Iceland today. We will be picking it up tomorrow (Monday). Looking forward to getting back in the saddle.
