After 4000km, you know biking’s the only way to go

August 26, 2004 By Denis Droppa

A group of friends and I came up with the hare-brained idea of visiting the four corners of South Africa by motorcycle. We started a couple of weeks ago with a ride to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of the continent.

Because it requires no imagination to be uncomfortable, my wife and I rode Honda’s new XL1000V Varadero for the 3700km, five-day round trip.

The recently upgraded Varadero is a big, comfortable, handsomely-styled fast tourer with the versatility to take on gravel roads. At R97 800, it’s competitively priced against its nearest rival, BMW’s R1200GS, that sells for R114 950
