Hope you all had a nice Christmas

I'm in Lusaka now and just got my visa for Namibia and am trying to plan some routes through there. I posted a thread on Wilddogs for routes and tracks info. If you guys got any tips, let me know.

http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/inde...topic=114314.0

I think I'll be entering SA towards the end of Jan and then I have a month for my visa there. I plan to head to Joburg first to visit with you guys, then through Lesotho to Durban and then down the coast to Cape Town and shipping out of there. Any route tips for riding in SA?

Cheers

Hey guys, I reached Windhoek. Great riding in the north, what epic landscapes Namibia has, wow

My rear tire is almost finished and I think I can make it to Joburg on it but I've noticed a strange bubble forming from the carcass. Do you any of you know of shops in Windhoek where I can get tires? If not, then how about in Upington? I'll be heading to Joburg from Fish River Canyon.

XR600R No more.

I sold my second motorcycle yesterday, after two years of fun riding.

I started regretting selling it the moment the new owner rode away on the bike.

But, all good things come to an end. Now I can start saving up for my new bike!

Any suggestions?

Has anyone noticed the cheap prices of HONDA Blackbirds? Can someone please explain to me why?

I can't believe that the new Tenere will win in a match against a Blackbird?

Old tech or not, 1300cc engine is no toy..
