Fantastic

That's the bit of Africa I miss.. the ( friendly ) people, nature, the bush, more friendly smiling people.. keep it up.. I might just come back to do a trip like that myself...

Incredible report! It would be in a dreamland if my wife would/could ride like yours.

Great pics and story.

I spent 2 weeks in your fine country in February 2006 on a GS. Rode from Cape Town to Joburg. Had an absolutly fantastic time!

Great report. I love seeing places like this that I more than likely will never see for myself. The Photos and the commentary were superb.

Look forward to more riding and reports!

I've enjoyed your "Goat Meat" thread and am very impressed how you manage to go border to border without having stuff go missing. Do you wear a money belt or have some Rand notes zip-tied to the bike frames?

It appeared that swiping an American Express card was not often an option...

Wow, what a report accompanied with great photography. What a way to start my day, albeit making me late for my first appt.

I cannot even begin to imagine your skillset to understand currency, politics and logistics in the various countries you traveled. BRAVO!
