If you have been reading my stuff I thank you, from the page views and the visitors log it seems as though there are quite a few people reading this and I hope you are enjoying reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. Anyway, as I was saying; if you have been reading my stuff you will have read about the South African biking icon; Des Pistorius who passed through our area on the 8th of April.
We met up at the Phoenix bar, that famous biker bar in Vredenburg, and I had a long chat with Des, a long time biker of whom I have read a great deal but had not until then had the pleasure of meeting.
He was part of the way through an "Around South Africa trip" on a Vespa towing a trailer! It was fascinating chatting with Des who was accompanied by his faithful side-kick, Boswell the poodle and the next day he was continuing his trip.
I have just received this picture from Des with the message that he had completed his trip, 8469kms!
I had to enlarge the photo so it is a bit blurred, but there is Des and Boswell with the Vespa and trailer rig somewhere up on the West Coast and I hope that I can get some more details of the trip at a later stage.
It must have been one hell of a trip at no more than 80kmh but as he said at the time; "I've got all the time in the world." Keep on riding Des!
