Well, of course, what he failed to divulge is the starting point. The wall behind the bush.

Hi Mark,

Been following your journey for a few years now but haven't posted because everyone else says things so much better than I ever could. That said, I loved the safari pictures and wanted to thank you for this incredible ride report and for sharing your journey. Safe travels.

Diane

Diane, Thanks so much for posting. Just great to know people are enjoying the Ride Report.

I do appreciate people commenting, as a writer of a Ride report, it is certainly gratifying to know that someone is reading what you are putting down. It has been an amazing experience as I have connected with so many oner people around the glide!

Thanks!

Good Morning World...... (or evening, night etc)

Just spending a couple days in Cape Town getting some things sorted out.

Had to laugh this morning as Jorg says, "some guy started a new ride report in South Africa...... and he has a photo in Die Hel that has your sticker in it "

I was speaking with Chris at Flying Brick Yesterday, and he was telling me about TechnomadnicJim. Might be fun to follow along.

spot the RM sticker




Got all my Gear washed up so the the dust and Sand from Namibia is gone (well mostly).




Cloths all cleaned up!




New shoes on the bike




Had to run to the mall to sort out a few things..... Loved the Moto parking right at the front door!




Then I rode out to the second BMW dealer, as my BMW Rallye gloves had some stitching that was coming apart. Donfords BMW was great in replacing them under warranty! Thanks Philip for the help!! (They even did it while their power was out... paperwork later!).






About to go for some short rides around the area.... Just enjoying the downtime to get caught up!

Radioman Network!

A musical ode to capture the essence of Radioman's signature move. We jump it off with Jump For Joy with Miss Peggy Lee and the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. The big band sound continues with Jumpin' At The Woodside featuring Gene Gene the Dancing Machine, Chucky B, and the Gong Show Orchestra. From the sublime to the ridiculous, here on the Radioman Network.

New shoes for the bike

Mark, what kind of tires did you put on the bike this time? Just curious about what drove your tire selection this time.
