Arriving in Nbi

Hi Guys,
I will be arriving in NBI at the end of July. I am looking for a good enduro, preferably 2 stroke 200cc+, but thumpers ok too. I like to race, adv ride, etc. Anyone know of anything (nothing too expensive please.)

Dude, I hate you. I'm moving back to the US on Tuesday from Kenya. Been riding here for the past 6 months. I would do anything to be on that trip, but unfortunately I'll be back in the US. Good luck!

By the way, great choice of steed. Those 950SEs absolutely rip. I rode one for a few days in Colorado Rocky backcountry in allll sorts of trail conditions, and it handled incredibly considering it's size and powerplant. I don't know who deals with KTMs between Uganda and SA, but Ian Duncan is the go-to KTM guy in Nairobi if you need anything. Good luck na maisha merefu!

Hey Nairobi ADVers,

Very upset about the Nairobi attacks at Westgate on Saturday. Hope all of you are safe and that your people are safe.

Be well

Really appreciate that. Thanks for reaching out. As far as I know, no riders have been harmed, but we'll know the full extent over the coming week. It is a common place to bikers to visit after a ride. Factual information is slow to come. I will be sure to update here if I find out any information.

Have not seen or heard about any riders being affected. I know of plenty others that were though. We stay about 3 km's from Westgate and it finally seems like its calming down. Thanks for checking in.

Thumb Osadabwa to Nairobi, Jan 2014

Hi Kenyan brethren,

My wife and I (and two sprogs) are on our way to NBO in January. I will try to drag my XR 400 with me if I can figure out the paperwork involved (any help there is appreciated).

Anyway, just a hello and hope to catch up with some of you for a ride in the new year. Can't wait to be back in Kenya!

Cheers
