New horizons beckon around each bend when popular crime writer Deon Meyer and photographer Adriaan Oosthuizen take on the country's most beautiful off-road routes. They share some of the challenges they faced and the interesting characters they met as they went in search of adventure and spectacular scenery. Their favourite routes cover nearly the entire country and are aimed at both experienced and novice riders. The route descriptions read like travel stories, with each one offering something different to discover: a breathtaking pass, a meandering river, charming old farm buildings or a deserted stretch of the Karoo. The book also contains a riding guide, which explains the theory behind adventure motorbiking. It offers several handy tips, such as how not to fall over on a sandy road, how to navigate dongas and streams, how to do an emergency brake and how to avoid accidents in general. - Over 30 routes are described and graded - Dramatic landscape photography - Colourful maps illustrate each route - Guide with practical riding tipsThe KTM 690, BMW F650GS Dakar or Sertao for taller people, or the KawasakiKLR 650 for thosenotso tall, are excellent choices (to name just afewobvious bikes), because they are manageable andlight, and are all pretty good allrounders.
