Here's a short video about our recent Vespa Ride to Clarens in the Free State of South Africa. About 350kms each way from the Pretoria start venue.

PS - The visible rock formations in the Golden Gate National Park are some of the oldest strata on earth.

Great video, professionally done. Lovely landscape. I think that might be you on the LHS at 2.08?

My daughter just returned to the states after living in Cape Town for 9 years. Now I've got a South African son-in-law too. Beautiful country!

Here's the YouTube link :

Edit:
I tried to type as plain text, but it automatically incorporates the vid into the post.

Here's a screen shot of the text url:

The YouTube link you provided is not in their search box Fudmucker. Even checked south Africa and yours was not there.

Try putting the link surrounded by url tags....URL above, link, then "close tags." Problem is that something isn't right about your link....

I was finally able to view the ride to Clarens. It was worth the extra effort. Whoever the vidiographer is did a great job operating the drone.
Thanks, Ralph

Your last post is the one that FINALLY worked for me! Thanks for the effort.

A minor clarification sir, there is the Ride Report section that is dedicated to posts like this. I 100% LOVE it and encourage you to post more! PLEASE!!!

Just pop it in that section on the forum is all.

Finally had a chance to truly watch all of the video with my full attention. The landscape and route...the cinematography is top notch!
