    The view down to Port St Johns from the light aircraft landing strip above it. You have to make sure there are no planes coming in to land before riding here as there is nothing like air traffic control just a long strip of tar in the middle of the bush with fantastic views

    The green house is legendary and definitely a unique experience. If you visit the Transkei you had better have your drinking liver installed most places only sell beer in quarts (750ml).

    Finally a picture of sunrise at the Spotted Grunter in Port St Johns. This is definitely one of the best places to stay in the area as with most things it is all about the great people there, they are very biker friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. I can also highly recommend Sally Can't Surf in Coffee Bay if you want a cheaper alternative to the local hotels.

    Remember that like yesterday. That white stuff on the wound is udder cream, used for cow teats. The closest we could get to anti inflamatory.

    Hey there. Sorry to butt in, but I live in Plett. I'm member of a local bike club called the Titty Twisters (www.tittytwisters.co.za) - 15 members all on adv bikes. In case you were wondering, the name is from the vampire strip club in the middle of the desert called the Titty Twister Bar in the movie "From Dusk Till Dawn".

    So, if you're in the area, drop us a mail and we'll organize a ride.

    Teebs.

    PS: The club logo - an adaptation of the Dakar logo - note the titty profile (nipple facing left) just below the head.
