What's the smallest capacity bike?

Jhb - Bloem is 400 clicks; in theory, that is 3.5 hours riding. if we depart at 7am we can be in Bloem before the close of brekky at the W.
Why do you need to stop and smoke? Just add some 2T to your tank :evil4:
Oh, okay, so you want to "fellowship" together on the route. :rolleyes:

That Windmill (casino) place further down (about the 4th off-ramp) is nicer thatn the first stop (BJs, I think). Hate the service at that garage. Will get better lunch at the casino than at the garage, plus more parking.

Just a thought.

N1 Bloem. As you come over the hills into the first off-ramp there is a garage/restaurant complex on the left. Then about 4 off-ramps later is the Windmill casino. Nice restaurant.
With a filling station, etc. Plenty parking; casino security for the bikes, ha!

Ah! Can be considered, noting that the first garage (BJ's) was never under consideration.

Also, my thinking is that if we stop for a sitdown brękkie or brunchie, we do not do a sitdown lunch. Lunch will then just be a garage pie and coke sort of thing and for that a Engen 1-Stop is probably better.

I checked out the distances using Google Maps. The times shown are indicative, based on speed limmits I suppose. So it sounds like quite a relaxed trip. The last leg could be cutting it fine with my small tank. Anyone know where the closest petrol station is at Oviston? Maybe I will need to stop at Springfontein for petrol, specialy if we start twisting the throttle a little. My bike gets thirsty just over 120km/h. I get 240km at a squeeze, 220km when I ride a bit over the 120km/h limmit.

I confirm that I will be leaving on Wednesday already as I`m visiting my son in Bloem. Said change in plans is not due to any of the following reasons:
- No windscreen;
- Ape hangers;
- Hard-tail setting on *C*;
- I`m a p*ssie;
- My meds ran out;
- A.D.D;
- All of the above.

Same goes for return. Maybe leaving on Saturday. Or Sunday. Or Monday. Depends on the Cacophonix situation...whether I`ll be tied down or not.

Please plan your time so that you take the Stop & Goes into account just outside Bloem. A better and more scenic route (roads are just fine) is to take the R706 as soon as you can out of Bloem. Frustration deluxe if you stay on the N1!

Sure thing. Kroonvaal 1 Stop. We will leave Grasmere at 07:00 and should be at Kroonvaal by 07:45. This is dependent on everyone arriving on time. Why not PM me your number and I will call just as we leave?

Who is leading this group, Rossi? :badgrin:

Grasmere to Kroonvaal is about 150km.:scratch: I would give it 1.5hours at least.:confused3: Did you mean "at Kroonvaal by 08:45" :?

Grasmere Engen 1 one Stop is just past the Golden Highway turn-off on the N1 before you get to the Grasmere Toll Plaza. Kroonvaal Engen 1 Stop is just past the Parys turn-off and Kroonvaal Toll Plaza. They are about 55Km apart. The next stop is the Shell Ultra City just before you get into Kroonstad.

So you have 3 Garages/Wimpy/Toilettes and 2 Toll Plazas from Jhb to Kroonstad. Even I can go from Grasmere Engen to Kroonvaal Engen on the STen in less than an hour.:thumbright:

Actually, Grasmere to Kroonvaal is nowhere near 150km. Grasmere to Kroonstad may well be, but Grasmere to Kroonvaal is about 76,8km. I therefore meant Kroonvaal by 07:45.

If you want 95 Unleaded I suggest Shell Ultracity. The Engen 1-Stops don't all sell 95.

I use 93, but I know that 1-stops I have been to do sell 95. Anyway, why use 95 up here?
