Brutal, the look on your face says it all. I hope you guys get yourselves checked out for sleeping sickness (trypanosomiasis) after this.

I would have thought that the day you were stuck up against that embankment on the ocean front in Angola, would have been your worst riding day. Amazing Gentlemen. Quite some intestinal fortitude you have with balls of steel. What sort of risk assesment do you go through to help make sure you cover as many bases as possible with regards to moto equipment and medical supplies? (I have'nt heard much talk about spare parts or the like.) As I imagine it, it would not take long for a good day to turn into a deadly day.

I am guessing that MJ got all his "special skills" and lack of fear from spending too much time in the South African Defense force .... an operator maybe

Excellent. I've been a lurker for some time now. After reading this EPIC RR I had to be a part of this society. Can't wait for more.
