I dream of Africa (Tanzania)
 
Not much of a written ride report but I thought I would share these pictures that one of my customers sent me.

I met William when he inquired about loud pipes for their KTM 690's, William and his posse of riders ride in the thick of the jungles of Tanzania and thereabout and need to make ther presence known for safety reasons. Elephants for example having big ears don't hear to well, the deep rumble of wide open pipes serve as a safety for riders, locals and widlife.

Enjoy!

Gotta love how the bike was stuffed into the bus :rofl
That place is just beautiful. The greens, the sand, the rivers, everything!
Hope I get a chance in the near future to do something down there :D

Hey boejangles

I'm very intrigued by these buddies of yours (having passed through Tanzania briefly myself & planning to return)

Are they resident there, or did they just ship their bikes there for a trip?

You know, I never asked but I'll forward this thread over to him and hopefully he can chime in to answer some questions.
