Cape Town to Johannesburg by BMW R1200GS – Day 1

Cape Town to Jeffreys Bay. Took about six-and-a-half hours including stops.

Bike handles awesomely.

It was raining when I left Cape Town, but I managed to get a gap in the clouds, so only picked up heavy rain on the way down from Sir Lowrys Pass at Botrivier. The Pass just above Somerset West was really misty though, so that was fairly intimidating, with vis at one stage reduced to about 50m. But I got through fine. Clearly! 🙂


Been There, Jumped That!

Stopped at Bloukrans to watch the jumps. Man they were “pushing” them through at pace. About one every 3-4 mins or so! Bloukrans Bridge Bungie Jump is the World’s Highest at 216m!

Jeffrey Bay is also the perioed owner of a Wind Farm!


Right now staying at All Africa J Bay Backpackers. Pretty cool spot actually. We’ll have to see the night progresses as to how good it turns out to be! 😉
