Hi mate, great to see you here! My memories are also very vivid. From the first moment (is that a local rider?) till the veranda breakfast (what's that sausage?)
Where are you now? Still RTW? Still on the little Yam?
Read you soon.

Cheers

Dirk

Man, I love your pictures - this one not so much. They're much better without HDR, I'm glad you're sparing us. Can't wait to get more of this, keep it coming.

Absolutely fantastic pictures as always Dirk. You made my day. It reminds me that I need to take the time to read your book that I have on my coffe table.
I take it you are not disturbed by the vibrations of the HP 2?
You seriously have to get some sponsoring from Canon. I am quite sure another brand like to sponsor you otherwise. :)

Ha ha! I don't remember the sausage thing...not getting kinky I hope! I remember more meeting in the street, I was talking to the locals and looking at this bike that Yes, does have boxes, must not be a local...OH, he's turning round....OH he speaks English! And then talking for ages saying every ten minutes "We should really get coffee or something," until it was sunset on the hill and coffee time was long gone!

Yeah, I'm still going, but sadly the Yamaha died in Guatemala, so now I'm on an - equally little - Honda XR. In Bolivia now!

Making this, what? fours years ago now!

Did I read that you are in Namibia....? What's happening now with you then? Another ride, Africa...I'm sure we talked about that plan!

All the best! Good to hear from you!

Amazing pics!! Loving the story too.
I can't decide on a front page candidate, I vote we just turn it over to you for a month or so.
