The Nav and I decided to do a Peninsula ride and our good friend Roger (aka Lawrence) and his buddy Jannie on their 1200 BMW Tourers joined us on our scenic coastal ride. We stopped off for breakfast at Bertha's in Simon's Town harbour.
Looking out across the ocean towards Clarence drive, I was happy that we decided not to venture out to Stellenbosch and surrounds, as the whole area was totally misted in. We on the other hand enjoyed a beautiful sunny but fresh Sunday morning in Simon's Town.
Now that we are proud owners of our Wild Card, we opted to explore the Cape Point Nature reserve and to our delight, we spotted Zebra's (Pajama donkeys as per Roger), Ostrich, Antelope and endemic Chacma baboons.
All our motorbikes are of the 'quiet' variety (no noisy exhaust pipes) and we were fortunate to view these beautiful animals up close, at times even stopping and cutting the engines whilst soaking up the beautiful scenery.
We drove around the reserve for approximately 2 hours and bravely joined the masses of tourists at the top of the mountain where we enjoyed spectacular views of the ocean and lighthouse.
We meandered homewards via Scarborough/Noordhoek and said our goodbyes to the BMW riders on the M3 as we took the Tokai turnoff home.
