Thanks for the bump and thanks to Metaljockey for the report. Glad you didn't go over the falls.

My wife did a school project on Namibia and she knew of some of the places you wrote about. She was yelling at me that for all those weeks she did the project I didnt care about Namibia but now that its on a motorcycle forum, I want her to look. She thought the pics were amazing. I think everyone thought they were, are amazing...
Thanks for sharing them....

This kinda makes sence to me...
And it tells how I justify taking off from this FF have-to-go-to-job-every-day-to-get-something-new-or-bigger-than-what-Ialready-got-kindaLIFE... Rock on..

It's my pension. Every trip is another deposit in my memory pension. I'm gonna have a wonderful old age. This trip report will be part of it.

Wonderful untamed country; an endless sequence of jaw dropping photos; no small amount of riding skill and tenacity; and a laconic and extremely thoughtful commentary. All this in one report! Jeez!

Thank you big time for this fantastic report.

What a great report. I am truly speechless after reading it.

Wonderful report, and obviously, wonderful country. Thank you.

Thanks for letting us live vicariously through such an epic trip by detailing it so well.

Many go through life regretting never trying to do exactly what you just did. I'm sure you've inspired more to try.
