Cold, Brrrrrr

Hi Sangobegger,

I guess June is a little bit cold for Lesotho

In June you are much better up here on the South Coast, Transkei or up the Coast to Mozambique.

for rentals check better www.motozu.lu.ms - WEB.DE MyPage

Hi Martman,

Pete & Bruce are still around, but looks like they will ship the bikes by the end of the month to Thailand.

regards

Thomas

crappy weather on the Sani.

Cheers Thomas.Yep figured it would be a bit chilly,but to be honest I spent my youth(misspent) on a variety of cheap crappy bikes riding in our long crappy winters,finding that cables freeze solid in minus 15 degrees centigrade at 60 MPH.Oh joy!. So a paddle up the Sani pass on another crappy old traillie in rain/snow/wind/sunshine would fairly take me back.Plus I don't have to take the wife on the back,AND she thinks I am more mental than usual,therefore when I tell her that I had to thaw out in a five star bunkhouse somewhere, she won't moan too much.

OK Thomas, so the frosty stands (cold), and Sangobegger, why not trail all the way to Hazyview for a frosty, it's also warm here, even in winter!
