We are setting off for BMW ........
01 February 2010
The PLAN was for my son and I to ride together in the southern Cape for the first two days. After that I was on my own to Johannesburg via the N7.
On Monday morning 1st February we left Bloubergrand for the BMW Pavilion at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. There was a small adjustment to be made to my motorcycle before we set off on the ride.
My bike is having adjustment made to the windscreen. We walked across the road to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for breakfast.
There were many baboons near here. I think that Eddie took some photos of them. Sorry, but I didn't ......
We found a brilliant little place near the top of Bain's Kloof. It is called Linda's Kitchen and owned and run by Hassan who came here from Tripoli, The Lebanon a few years ago. Great job Hassan.
Then it was to Ceres and a refuelling stop. For my non-South African readers this is the price of fuel in South Africa; R7.75 per litre.
Worcester was a good place for a night stop. The B&B we found was called the Linga Longa. It was very good and owned and run by Mrs J. de Bruyn.
After a shower and change of clothes we walked a kilometre to St Gerun's Restaurant for a beer and a first class pepper steak.
It had been a good day.
Here are the details for Linga Longa:
