Some video as promised. Sorry about the smudge, we found one of the few water crossings in the area right before this clip.

It was a good ride last week… We had a little bit of everything.

We had water crossings.



We had power slides/drifting (also a fuel leak, which I'm sure added motivation for someone to pick it up before the camera came out).



We also had time to stop and smell the roses, watch the livestock, and enjoy mother nature…



And then…we all reverted back to our adolescent years.

Apparently, the CB has some skills (or he learned it all from the interent).



Like I said, it was a good ride.

I went to Praia, Cape Verde last week for work. I didn't take the bike because, well, it doesn't float! But after exploring the island I sure wish I had.





A bit of info about the Cabo Verde islands if you want to know more

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Verde

Mrs 34 came along as well and on Saturday we did some exploring.

This was about mid way up a wonderful, twisty road. We got to the top and I told her I had to go back and get some pics for you FF's.



I was taking pics when I heard a growl coming from the bottom of the canyon. Upshift, upshift, upshift; downshift, downshift, downshift. Repeat! So I waited patiently, listened to him doing what I wish I were doing and caught him as he went by



The paved roads were outstanding on most of the island. But the dirt roads looked even better!



That one was just over the ridge. Man, what I would have done for a 500 EXC and a couple extra days.


And beautiful blue water is what waited at the Northwest tip


And this guy too.


I didn't have the opportunity to figure out how to rent a bike but it would be worth while if you ever make it to the Cabo Verde islands. I hear the other islands are even better.




Why does the……
well, you know the rest

Hey Erik. If you stop there again hopefully you will get a chance to check the place out. I think many of the flights to and from Joburg stop in Dakar these days so make sure you give me a call if you stop here!

We found another TWAT!

Meet Alan the Aussie. He clearly drinks the right color kool-aid. He rides well and he's one hell of a nice guy.



And Scott found some new rubber for his two-fiddy.



Our little band of hooligans is getting larger!

We rode to Saly again this past weekend. There was some bad mojo going around though. One of us went down, one of us had a front tire go flat, almost went down and is now walking like a gimp and one of us got dumped into the ocean. Pics to follow………..
