The whole way on the journey to date I'd noticed the worsening leak of oil from the shock absorber seals.
When I got to Port Elizabeth we decided to sort this out before the trip to Lesotho which would require heavy use of the shocks due to the rough roads.
We were also told not to tie the bike down from the handlebars to the trailer as in this picture because that is the primary cause of the shock springing leaks. We live and learn!
Rob is the chap who had organised this trip to Lesotho. He has been going there for years both on business and for pleasure.
He was going to tow my bike up to Paul Roux on his trailer with his bike, so that when I completed my Goal two (Splashy Music festival), it would be there ready for Goal three (Lesotho Trip)

This meant that we had time to get my bike sorted out before he was going to leave the next day.

We were able to get away pretty much on time with a very happy bike and owner. Where else would you get such outstanding service so quickly?
But wait that's not all! He has another string to his bow. See tomorrow's Blog to see what it is.
