Local to Kenya

Hoping to get a thread started for those who are local to Kenya and more specifically to Nairobi. Anyone else out there? Would love to swap parts and gear, put together group rides and share some chai.

Let's get together.

Thumb ADV rider in Kenya

Hi Zulusafari...
Just joined advrider.. and pleased to find this thread. I'm not in Nairobi very often, but am based in Amboseli, if you know it? Have lots of space to 'play' in.. get in touch? Also, in Nairobi this weekend (12-14th Feb) are you around? Be nice to meet up and make contact. Always looking for other people to ride with in the bush.. much more fun and safer!
Give me a shout..
Cheers!

just joined this forum after my brother told me about two riders in the mara over this easter. I would love to be part of such adventures. I have a yamaha xt600 which unfortunately has been giving me electrical problems of late. If you can recommend a good mech to have a look at it, i;ll really appreciate.

hey! good to see new peeps! theres a guy out in lavington. his name is Chris Handschuh. he's located on marsabit road...a place called jungle juction. Take Gitanga road as if you are going towards Kawangware, then take a left onto Marsabit road, his is the 4th or 5th gate on the right side(black gate with a big monkey painted on it). He's a bit pricey but he does a good job!
