Absolutely Awesome

Thanks for sharing your ride and the wonderful photos. I've got to make it there one day.

Love your Transalp!

I just recived some more photos from SAR, so it is time for small update.


During the Off Road Toy Run it is collected 19 500 Rand, and few thousand toys. That is only from the Off Road Run. All together on Toy Run all over SAR it is collected much more. That money from the Off Road Toy Run, thanks to Dirk and the people from organization, goes to one center for abandoned children and children with HIV infection.















Dirk and the lady from the center.



Some of the food and the presents.





More photos from the center.





They are very happy now.







They started the song.







Dirk's wife Trudy





Dirk and his son Troy with children and the ladies.



Garden.




Some of the photos that I just recived from SAR.

On the airport.



Small airplane.



On the road.



Off road Toy Run.











Grand opening. Kawasaki.







New KLR.





Bikers church.









Inside









Joburg. Safe part.






















That's it folks! For now, of course!

Great report

Thanks for a great report. You have really captured a lot of the diversity and contrasts we have in our country. From modern cities to rural areas with the old tribal systems still in place. It really is a country of a 1000 cultures and it's that mix that makes it a unique and interesting place to live or visit. You have only seen a small part of the riding the country has to offer so you will have come back and see some more!!!


Here is a pic from an older toy-run in Durban

Picoda,

Thanks for an awesome report.
As a South African it is nice to see a report that contains the reality of our country and not some touristy made up interpretation

Lovely report and some very moving pictures too. Well done and we look forward to welcoming you back
