  • Road Tripping from Coast to Coast

    Road Tripping from Coast to Coast is something everyone should experience at least once in their life time. We look at the Wild Wander (Cape Town to Durban, 1700km) #Roadtripping Be sure to come past Randburg Midas for all of your camping, fishing and outdoor lifestyle needs for your trip! Most South African itineraries include a drive along the east coast, following the Indian Ocean to the Garden Route. This famous 300km stretch of beaches, lagoons and indigenous forests is loved by outdoor enthusiasts, with activities from surfing to ziplining. Vacationing Suffers flock to Knysna and Plettenberg Bay for seaside holidays, but laid-back Wilderness and Buffalo Bay have more rugged rural charm. A section of the route that demands more effort, but is eye-opening and rewarding, is the Wild Coast. Formerly the Transkei homeland, the aptly named area’s hills roll to rugged cliffs and empty beaches. Leave the freeway and venture into the country’s most quintessentially African spot, watching out for potholes and cattle between the green hills dotted with Xhosa rondavels (round huts with a thatched, conical roof). A few backpacker lodges in this area exemplify the local appeal of escaping South Africa’s Westernised aspects and experiencing Xhosa culture. Nelson Mandela was born here in the village of Mveso, and there are a few sights dedicated to the great man. The Nelson Mandela Museum is in the regional capital, Mthatha, and there are monuments and heritage centers to discover in the surrounding villages.

  • Jorge Lorenzo reduced Valentino Rossis Lead

    Jorge Lorenzo reduced Valentino Rossi’s lead in the championship to 14 points after cruising to victory at MotorLand Aragón #Motorbikes If you want your super bike to run at Moto GP performance levels, only use the best oil. Which is Motul, and it is available at Randburg Midas for your convenience. Lorenzo led every lap at the Spanish circuit while Rossi was forced to accept third place following a frantic battle with Dani Pedrosa throughout the race. Lorenzo claimed the lead from pole man Marc Márquez and surged into the lead, though his Honda rival quickly clawed back the deficit and emerged as a threat. However, Márquez lost the front end of his bike at Turn 12 and crashed out, reacting furiously to his own error. That left Lorenzo clear up front, a few seconds ahead of Pedrosa and Rossi, who quickly got by fast-starting Andrea Iannone. Rossi made his first move on Pedrosa with five laps remaining into Turn 5 but the Spaniard fought back, a situation which was repeated a few laps later. Having already tried a couple of times at Turn 1, Rossi made a block pass into Turn 5 to move into second, but Pedrosa dived up the inside at Turn 7 and edged Rossi onto the kerbs. Rossi tried once more further around the lap but ran too deep, allowing Pedrosa to ease back through into second place and return to the podium places.

  • Motor Bike off road riding tip 2

    Follow these Motor Bike off road riding tips to master you skills #Motorbikes We are highlighting tips to make you the best off-roader rider you can be! MOST IMPORTANTLY to keep your motor bike running at peak performance remember to use Motul off-road products available from Randburg Midas. To Turn, Push The Bike Down This will be counterintuitive if you’re coming from street riding. Off-road, lean angle is your friend; to turn you want to push the bike down as far as possible, while keeping your body upright, on top of it. This makes full use of the knobs on dirt tires and allows you to easily control the slides that make off-road riding so much fun. Stay Off The Front Brake In Turns Riding where there’s little traction (off-road) is totally different from riding where there is a ton of grip (the street). Don’t try to trail brake, it’ll simply wash out the front. A dirt bike’s front brake can be used hard in a straight line, so slow down before the corner, push it down, then power out. Or, use the terrain to your advantage, employing berms or similar to catch your speed and redirect you. Look Where You Want To Go, Not Where You Don’t This applies to street riding too. Consciously turn your head and focus on where you want the bike to be, not on the cow/cliff/boulder you don’t want to hit. Your body will follow your head and the bike will follow that. Practice this to the point where it doesn’t take deliberate effort.
