I eventually convinced my wife to join me on the AT for the first time. I said it would be tar most of the way and very little dirt..... Oooops as it turned out it was 300 km Tar and 1000 km dirt. we started at Port Edward and went down the wild coast (Transkei ) all the way to Mazeppa bay and back.
What a great bike! I had just upgraded from a 2016 AT dct to the AT 1100 AS DCT this all the additional soft panniers and a top box.
We both suffer from broken backs and this had to be the most comfortable ride ever. We did about 230 km every third day on very bad dirt Transkei roads.
This helped to recover between each hop. By the time we were two or three days into the ride I had sorted out every setting to perfection.
So we started getting very adventurous and took a lot rougher 4 x 4 tracks.
The trip ended three weeks later with a very happy wife and all she wants to do now is go on another adventure trip.
