Some more dirt after our turn-off to Pangani Beach. Broke down and took off our jackets and gloves. Way too hot and humid and we weren't going faster than 35 kph. This section actually became pretty technical and sandy so it was a real challenge, two-up, on the loaded bike...

We make it!

Most epic motorcycle trip of my life.

The 950 Adventure is the best bike I have ever ridden. When and if this one ever dies, I am getting another.

These look awesome but could not get my hands on one in time. :(

But, have you tries the sidestand method?
You know, I did try it when I was surfing this forum for techniques and I could not get it to break. I thought I was going to break my center stand instead. But I will check out the video because I am sure I was doing something wrong. Thanks a lot!

If you love your bike, set it free!

Hi Andres,

I would never congratulate myself enough for letting you adopt my mistress.
I can assure you, I am not mad at you anymore, she was happy with me, but I have never seen her that elated, ecstatic.
You are living in advbiker's paradise, period.

Very nice pics, landscape, trails, animals, everything.

indeed, I set my bike free.

Ride safe!

Hey brother,

I knew you would get a kick out of this. Look at where she is now! More ride reports coming soon. Thank you for taking such good care of her - 9,000 kms fully loaded with two people and the only complications were: a puncture, rim dents (my fault) and a blown VRR (car wash's fault).

Stay tuned for more coming up!

Great trip report guys. Girlfriend changing the oil with grease up to her elbows and wearing her gold bracelets, is an awesome pic.

Thanks for sharing!!

Humn. Might have something to do with the weird front tire wear.
