We change tact in episode five and six as we take the viewers on an all tar trip on road bikes. How did we end up on road bikes, when we are so outspoken on our love for the lesser known roads. Well, it was part request, part challenge, part intrigue and a whole lot of hell, why not!
So we take the viewer on an old fashioned road trip to Oudtsthoorn, exploring some parts of the longest wine route in the world, and also experience some of the most fantastic tar passes the Cape has to offer.
The ever changing colors of the mountains, the scenic passes, rivers, vineyards and orchards, as well as the multitude of attractions all found on the R62, offer you an unforgettable adventure – especially if you are at the controls of a motorcycle.
For accommodation, we stay over in Barrydale at the Bikestop, feast at the Country Pumpkin, and then ride off to meet a local legend, before continuing to our next sleep over at Kleinplaas in Oudtsthoorn, two very nice venues to stay at.
We have loads of information in these two episodes with Blue Tooth devices and GPS units getting some time in the spotlight and we also have a look at what medical kit one should be carrying. We further have some advice on cornering a road motorcycle and an insert on how to wash your bike.
We investigate the Ostrich feather boom, visit some of the top attractions in and around Oudtsthoorn, and have the experience of a life time. Most importantly of all, we discover that any motorcycle will enrich your life.
