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.
Waking up in ‘Die Hel’ was an experience like no other. Thankfully, it had been a drama free visit but I was overly keen to gear up and get the hell out of there. There was something about it which made me feel uneasy, and a few of the other guys shared my apprehension. The coming of daylight now meant we had the green light to ride out of the lost valley, taking to the five-foot wide, steep and poor conditioned series of switchbacks that had lead us in the day before.
