    Default Touring cape province ( by bike )

    We want to tour the CAPE in December , but with a twist this time , going down by bike . I have a KTM 1190 Adventure , with top box and panniers . So we ok to carry more or less what we need clothing wise for the tour , We will have to make use of B&B or chalets . but that another problem and easy to overcome .
    What I need is info on routes . I have my Google earth open and their is so much to see , does one concentrate north of the N1 , or South ? I like the mountains , as it good riding . Would like to drive the Seweweeks poort pass . Its dirt road but looks good from photos . But I have no clue as to where to go . I have a roadfinder but think a GPS is a must have . I am however sorted with 12v on board power as the bike has a power outlet so I can plug in a phone charger / Ipad and use that . Just not sure on the data usage .
    That is technicalities , that can easily be sorted out before the trip . Routes and must see places is what I would like to get info on . At this early stage I think we will ride down via Kimberly , And join the N1 at Three sisters , then Beaufort west and on to the mountain passes .
    Wilderness / George could be a hub , and we could ride out from their . But as I know Swambo, a , Cape tour with out a visit to the Mother city IS not a Cape tour . So a visit to Gordons bay and the Strand could be on the cards ands then we make our way along the Garden route , is a option . Can visit the Saloon in Gansbaai again .
    I would like to be a bit more inland and ride the Mountain passes but have to take into account its not just a bike ride tour but we need to see the sites as well .
    Suggestions please .

    Why do you want to spoil an adventure by planning ?

    Do what we do, just go, let the trip tell you where to go. Talk to locals, take one day and one night at a time.

    Best holidays we have had .

    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
