On Monday the 1st March, in the soft light of the rising sun, I was threading my way through the early morning peak traffic to meet another three riders who had been attracted to the same folly. This was to ride through all of SA’s nine Provinces.
This report covers a five day ride in March 2013 from Cape Town to Baviaans over a variety of roads – myself on a R1200 GS and my son, Jethro, on a KLR 650.
Last minute work and preparations led to an afternoon start with a firm plan to end up in Calitzdorp for the night, but looser ideas on how to get there.

I had not been looking forward to taking my GS for it’s 60 000km service at Donford- but, you want your ride to be reliable, you need to give it love and care J
And then I got there, and I had asked if they could give me a scooter as loan bike…
Picked up scooter… you pay the fuel.
This is not quite a ride report and I know most of you see
it every day. But does one really “seeee”

"Drive on unpaved road." These are magical words when they appear at the top of your GPS screen, and in the trip that Gavin and I did last week from Cape Town to Prince Albert, this was pretty much all I saw for the majority of the day. Little did we know when we left Cape Town that our GPS has an evil sense of humour and that she sometimes has a rather inventive interpretation of 'unpaved road'.
It’s that time of the year again where we as bikers get to take part in a very special event, the Toy Run.
