The daytrip before the event that night

Did a day trip with a number of bikers staying over at Koedoeskloof. We did about round robin route of about 300km on the day. Starting of at Koedoeskloof, we did a route via Anysberg Nature Reserve over some private land, then all the way to Gamkapoortdam, then via Seweweekspoort back to Koedoeskloof.

Over private land we go

Crossing the Touwsriver

Passing the Anysberg Nature Reserve


Service road to the dam wall needs some attention I think

Making a start

A new chapter has started today. A chapter about writing about our traveling on a motorcycle.

Traveling started actually earlier this year. Janneke and myself did our first road trip to an event held at Koedoeskloof near Ladysmith. Jo Rust did a talk on her solo adventure about going around Africa on a motorcycle, the first lady in the world to achieve this feat. I wanted to attend because of the trip I want to do from Home to Amsterdam. A trip planned for 2018 but more on this later.

Anyhow, I got Janneke to join me. So, to get this blog started, here are some pics of the trip.

Getting ready to leave home on Friday morning

We had a good trip to our overnight stay. A nice self catering place just down the road from Koedoeskloof.

Hereby thus the first report entry endeth.
