1st post!

Spent a year and a half in SAfrica. Bought my first bike there, an old and wonderfully unmuffled xl185 which I rode for not-even half a year before I had to sell it when I left. Lived first in Wildernis, then Hoekwil, beautiful riding out there, including the old George-Knysna road:

Sweet, those 185 were bullet proof. I had one like yours just in reds.

I see you are still in Africa, where are you now??

Quit posting these pics...you are making me homesick!

Fortunately I have been blessed to have been back to SA 3 times in the last year....every time I go home...I never want to leave.This sickness is getting expensive...but well worth it!
Have many fond memories riding in Lesotho....April 2012 my Dad & I went back to Lesotho & retraced our tracks that we had ridden 19 years earlier...the Road from Butha Butha had just been tarred to Oxbow....in 19 years the I guess the Chinese had completed it to Sani & with their shitty workmanship it was back to gravel again...the damn road didn't even last 20 years....
I would love to spend some time at Afriski ....
Ride safe!
John

Yeah, I miss that little bike. There's a lot of 125s here, XL, DT and suzuki TF and a million chinese clones thereof. I currently live in Guinea Bissau, underneath Senegal. (beautiful riding to be done, pics will be posted soon in day-tripping forum)

And I just had bloodypusjunk the volume of a golfball squeezed out of my left hand, so I'm not riding for a while

Not to get too off topic, but they are REAL nice cameras, I'm thinking of getting one to stand in for my bulky dslr.

Lesotho

Lesotho is awesome! I rode the "Roof of Africa" in 2009. What a landscape! Nice People. But the racetrack was a killer! Will never forget. Rocks Rocks Rocks, Heat, and Rocks..... :-) have to go there, again

Circumstances forced me to sell the XT, but I've got to have two wheels, I would go crazy without a bike, so the KLR is the best second option
I'm actually very happy with it, and it does the job just as good

The wheels just changed, the spirit is still the same
