7 May 2014 Bar­ry­dale to Sedge­field 288km

Jo intro­duced us to a beau­ti­ful lit­tle venue called Koe­does Kloof near Ladi­smith. The view is spec­tac­u­lar and the own­ers very hos­pitable. This also allowed Dave to fit a few km of dirt road into the day, he seems to man­age to fit dirt road in every day, and rides that Harley darn well on it as well.

From there we headed to George and Vossie’s Thun­der Cycles http://​www​.thun​der​cy​cles​.co​.za/​w​m​e​n​u​.​p​h​p

What a won­der­ful man and great motor­cy­cle shop. He was not only open just for us on vot­ing day, served us and a whole bunch of other rid­ers some fin­ger snacks, but he and his mechan­ics also did the required main­te­nance on Dave’s Harley David­son 1200 Sport­ster and did not charge one cent.

Vossie Vosloo is an incred­i­bly sup­port­ive real biker. We are very grate­ful for his help with our Cheshire Home and QASA quest

Next year Vossie sug­gests that we plan things a lit­tle bet­ter and use his whole shop for a talk and meet and greet with Dave Barr. Who’s in?

The rest of the day was fairly quiet, which allowed us time to vote and also gave Dave Barr some time with Col Breyten­bach and his charm­ing
wife at the Pili Pili Beach Bar in the evening.

Thank you to Louis at Pili Pili Beach Bar for a great sup­per, lots of flex­i­bil­ity and Afrovibe Back­pack­ers for very con­ve­nient, com­fort­able accom­mo­da­tion right on the beach in Sedgefield.
