MSL’s deputy editor Bruce Wilson has joined Trailquest and 11 other adventurers who’ll be crossing South Africa on Triumph’s Tiger 800. Each day we’ll follow their story as they make their way 2000 miles from Johannesburg to Cape Town, ticking off some of the best routes and trails the nation has to offer.
The level of concentration was painful, but it would have been a whole lot more painful to have made a mistake. The sheer sided drops spanned several thousand feet, and the relentless boulders and voids in the rugged trail’s surface were doing their best to draw my Tiger’s wheels over the edge. This was the toughest riding we’d known so far, miles from anyone or anywhere high up on the Baviaankloof.
