Post by: ALLEN I on January 09, 2017, 05:37:52 pm
Nam, the Two Dinosaurs and the Twins.
Oh!!!! Oh!!! Oh!!!

So for you Ous out there that aint got anything  much going on, Us two Dinosaur  "Ous" had some sports in Nam again, this time with a twist.

Here’s a wee bit of a preview for you guys.

My Honda is ready to go.

Ian’s Honda is on the go.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%202_zpstvil7c65.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%202_zpstvil7c65.jpg.html)

Alas some clutch problems on my twin on route.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%203_zpsquf9gedu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%203_zpsquf9gedu.jpg.html)

So whilst waiting for parts to fix her. I get attacked by a bloody relative.

A bloody puncture (I does think there will be more)

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%205_zpsl2zzoekr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%205_zpsl2zzoekr.jpg.html)

The two Twins meet for the first time. I scheme I can feel some jealousy between them.

Some weird "Ou" drinking coffee.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%207_zpsm7mppjbx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%207_zpsm7mppjbx.jpg.html)

Another weird "Ou" Posing by his Boney.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%207a_zpsrzszqfha.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%207a_zpsrzszqfha.jpg.html)

Loosing ones nuts in the middle of nowhere becomes this.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%208_zpsdmqp3ltk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%208_zpsdmqp3ltk.jpg.html)

Sometimes a plan cannot be made. Then one has to “Sommer maar” endure and push on.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%209_zpssfullqvs.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%209_zpssfullqvs.jpg.html)

We see some spectacular sunsets

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2010_zpsnlbbdhsw.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2010_zpsnlbbdhsw.jpg.html)

And a Ghost Tree

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2011_zpsejhh2vpy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2011_zpsejhh2vpy.jpg.html)

We also check out some “Moerse” nice views.

And I find some “stukkende goed”

I goes for a goof whilst a “Bokkie” checks me out.

We encounter more of this. (See I told you" Ous")

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2018_zpsyesapemr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%202016%20Teasers/nam%2018_zpsyesapemr.jpg.html)

And still more of the same.

Your trusty Honda Africa twin travelled on few bakkies as did mine in EC last year after punctures from hell which resulted in my crashing on the only piece of tar we rode at about 100km/h. Great pics!

Nam the Two Dinosaurs and the Twins
The Twins do Namibia together.


So it has come to that time again for me to get the old cob webs off of my “old Boney” and to check her out and to “Gooi” on new tyres and tubes and all of the “Gooites” a Ou must do before a Ou goes on a long trip again.   

Now Ian has decided that seeing that my “Boney” is so “Mooi” and strong and all of the other “Gooites” that an Africa Twin is. Like I mean it can “Sommer” stand out in the sun and it doesn't need coffee “vroeg” in the morning to get started and such that he “sommer” went and bought himself the new African Twin. Skim he was “Moerse” Jealous because as we all know, The AT’s is “moerse lekker” bikes.
Now he had to “Gooi” on all of the extra “Gooites” a Ou has to “Gooi” on his “Boney” to go ride the sand monsters out there. (Shame)

Shame I thinks my “Boney” is gonna miss its Pel the “Moerse” strong Yamaha (Super Tenerro) of his, as these two “Boneys” have done some good mileage together and taken us to some interesting places these last couple of years.

So all the Prep is done, our route is planned and we is waiting D Day to come.

                                                             Our route.

Leave home on the 7th October and to be back home on the 30th October
Now once again we had to meet up again somewhere so we decided in Sutherland, from there we would “Gooi” a “Draai” down to Klein see up too Port Nolloth up to the Nam Border, cross with the ferry, Cruise to fish river canyon , Ride some major D roads and like ride some “Lekker” remote “Possies all the way up to Brand Berg (White Lady Lodge) and then slowly work our way back down again to Aus and then cross over to Rietfontein Border and do some more “Lekker” riding in the Kalahari, find the all alooooosif (Noonieput) whilst slowly cruising down to Upington whereby we would once again split up and go different routes to get back home.

Now as all of the “Lekker” trips planning is done, and all of these “Lekker” rides a Ou reads about, a “Ou”“Sommer” gets”Lekker lus” to ride “Sommer” right away, but “Nooit” we has to wait for the time to come.

Day 1: Pretoria to Klerksdorp
240km Takes me 3hours to get there.

It’s here 7th of October so I’m off to Klerksdorp to my Daughter and Tappets Possie. Now here the shit starts. On my way down I notice that the clutch has decided to slip a bit in 4th and 5th gear at high revs. I wonder if it could be the oil I “Gooied” in as its Shell 20w50, well I schemes to myself that that is what it must be as my “Boney” was all ok before then.
So I gets to Klerksdorp at the “plaas” of the Rug Rats and “Groet” them and then it’s off to go buy some other “OLIE” 10w40.
Now I drains de Oil and whist having a cold one or two because as you “Ous” no I “Sommer” like my cold ones and any way a “Ou” has to make sure all of the “OLIE” has to drain out.
Now I “Gooies” in the new oil and I take the “Moerse strong Boney” of mine for a ride hoping that it was the oil. 10km out and 10km back so that the “Olie” can like do its job and make the “Boney” feel all better again. I know if I have lotsa cold ones over a period “I also feel “Sommer” lots better”
Shit, nope it’s still slipping, no matter I decide how many cold ones I have it aint gonna make this problem go away.

So I “Gooies” my old AT on its center stand and does proceed to take off the clutch cover to check out why my “Boney” is feeling not so “Lekker”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%203_zpscxmhhd2l.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%203_zpscxmhhd2l.jpg.html)

Now I does find out why. Bloody steel plates are a wee bit bluish, so now I quickly “Goois” a “Draai” at  the Honda agents, Now I don’t no if the “Ou” who orders the parts for our “Boneys” is not so “Lekker” or not or if he worked at selling car spares because they only have 2 steel plates and 1 friction plate in stock and he somehow schemes to supply all of us “Ous” with that. (The bike takes 6 steel and 7 friction plates) So any way I tunes the “Mooi Auntie Teressa” to order them for me, whilst I go on a quest to find some second hand ones. The Gods are smiling “Dik Stukke” at me for I find 5 steel plates at Central Bikes for my “Boney” Johaan the co owner of the "Possie "Sommer" gives me a "Moerse Gooii Prys" Dam man now that's " Sommer Moerse Lekker" service. Now just to wait for the others to arrive and then we can continue on our trip.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%202_zpszm6x6chn.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%202_zpszm6x6chn.jpg.html)

The parts arrive on the Monday 10th

We is running now a few days late, so we has to change our route.
Now I’m “Sommer” in a “moerse” hurry to get my “Boney” going that I don’t check what I’m doing and manage to F……. up the bloody pressure plates arms which holds the hole clutch together. Yip Honda aint got one in stock.
So now I’m in the “Kak” as nowhere has any one got one in stock and it’s gonna take 3 weeks to get me one from Honda. So I schemes to myself Whilst drowning my sorrows with a cold one that Yip this trip is over before it has started, but just then as the second cold one touches my contemplating thingy in my body I has this brilliant idea and I “Gooies” (Mike) “Super Foxy” a call and strews “Nannies” he can help a fellow biker out with the Pressure Plate.

So as the Gods are once again smiling at me we now just have to make a plan to get it from Cape Town to Klerksdorp. Whilst I’m having another cold one and contemplating this problem. Ian phones me and tunes me that he is in Cape Town with his missus. Now all the bells are ringing in my head as dam man the Gods are now really smiling at me as ”Yip” Ian and Mike will “Gooi” there “Koppe” together and make a plan to get the part to me.

Now who comes to the rescue you ask? Chris from Zebra Flying Brick, who managed to get the part to me in two days (Couriered it to me) Dam love this site. So many good people on it willing to go that extra mile for a “Ou”, and to top it all he phoned me to make sure I got the parcel.

So now I’m a bit “Skikerag” so I have “Sommer” organized with  Honda agents  “Motos” to “Gooi” all the clutch parts together and to make my beloved ”Boney” all better again.

So now whilst I was like patiently waiting for my parts to come I heard that there was like lotsa Dinosaurs in Klerksdorp, so I took the Rug Rats and went to check them out.

The rug Rats born again.

Bike all fixed and I’m ready to take to the roads.
Day 1 again: Klerksdorp to Upington 650km away.
Takes me 9 hours to get there.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2010_zps1utlu6w6.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2010_zps1utlu6w6.jpg.html)

We have lost a week so far, today is the 13th, so a lot of planning had to be changed, I will meet up with Ian in Upington.
He has left 2days ago.

Stop to draw some cash for along the road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2011_zpswcfuaoy4.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2011_zpswcfuaoy4.jpg.html)

Peanut is not a happy “Oukie” as he doesn't want me to go as we was having a “Moerse “Lekker” time “jaaging “”kak” on together He he.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2012_zpsxih3x2vc.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2012_zpsxih3x2vc.jpg.html)

Along route “Alles is lekker”, stop to “Gooi” in some petrol.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2013_zpsrb7mrnsl.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2013_zpsrb7mrnsl.jpg.html)

And then 52km outside of Kuruman a bloody puncture.
A tube blow out. A hole in it that I can put my fingers into. The tube is 6mm thick.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2014_zpsuxqv0in3.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2014_zpsuxqv0in3.jpg.html)

Now I had new tyres fitted and the chap who was working on the bike removed the inner rim tape (rubber) and put “Duct Tape” in its place after I tuned him not too. This came back to haunt me later on in the trip. Had to replace the tube as the spokes had perished it.

Kuruman and it’s getting late, I quickly “Sluk” a cold one and “Vamoos” to Upington.
Bit of petrol in Katoo and take a photo of this monster as I’m having a break.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2016_zpsg0qgym8y.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2016_zpsg0qgym8y.jpg.html)

We have us a “Lekker Skaap” braai and drink some cold ones and chat about all of the “Kak” I had to get here.

Now we "Sommer" did not check out how late it was getting so we have to "Jaag" like “Mal Goed” to get to Canyon lodge, i mean we is the Two Moerse Strong Dinosaurs, we is WD, we is Bikers, so we is not bang “Ous”, we are cruising at a "Lekker" space eating "Spoed" Between 110km and 140km to make up time.

I take a Quick photo of Canyon Road house and I’m on my way again.

Ian “Goois” his “Boney” in gear and takes off.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2050_zpsklukq8rp.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2050_zpsklukq8rp.jpg.html)

Me I also “Goois” my “Boney” in gear and takes off after him only to hear a strange sound coming from the rear of my "Boney"
I stop and scheme what the hell now, only to find the brake Pad guide screw is missing in action, gone with the wind, "Moer toe" missing, “Huit ge fo.... verloer.”
It’s at this point that I remember that when I changed the brake pads I never locked it properly. So I “Sommer Gooied” some choice words at myself. @#$#%^^%^&^&*& And some more $@$%$^&*%%#$ for good measure.

Ian comes back to see where I am.
I tune him I heard this noise so I stopped to check it out.
Yip he says I heard a noise on your bike when you went passed me but didn’t click about it. HUH!!!! That was about 30km ago.
Well nothing to be done about it now as these things happen

I Makes “Gou” a temporary plan with a Cable Tie.

“Walla” I’m back on the road again. OK OK without back brakes again.  (Dam I seem to be getting used to this no back brake on sand thingy)” NB!!! Not recommended for the faint hearted”

Cruise further down the road towards our possie.

Kit off all booked in, time to check out my “Boney”
1X brake pad damaged. No choice will have to use as is until it can be replaced.
Mental note to self (Use back brakes sparingly)

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2061_zpsxzz2tbsh.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2061_zpsxzz2tbsh.jpg.html)

1 X Rim bit of damage caused by brake catching disc housing.

She stands alone. “Sulking” I presume as I have not got a bolt long enough to go through.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2063_zpss9zbjhiz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2063_zpss9zbjhiz.jpg.html)

Next morning I was up early and got some help in the form of a gutter bolt, the only long one they had at their workshop. The Gods were once again smiling at me.

Meanwhile we retreat to our Room and change Sim cards etc.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2064_zpsibwzjy5n.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2064_zpsibwzjy5n.jpg.html)

Whilst this Ou keeps a wary eye on us. He is actually wild, it’s a situation of adapt or die as there has been no rain for a long long time.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2065_zpsosvqxny8.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2065_zpsosvqxny8.jpg.html)

These “Dassies” of course just couldn’t care a shit as they frolic around the possie.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2066_zpszy9wlz31.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2066_zpszy9wlz31.jpg.html)

I on the other hand is in most “desperate” need of a “cold one or two”.

After our “Lekker” graze we sit outside and drink more cold ones and I “Sommer” organize us a bucket of ”Uis” to keep our cold ones and other stuff cold.

Ian on a mission? Nope he was just walking along so I took a “Lekker” photo to show you “Ous” we was there.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2091_zpspjitbikt.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2091_zpspjitbikt.jpg.html)

A lot of “Klippe” in a heap. They say a “Ou” must “Gooi” on a “Klip” for good luck and that the gods will look after a “Ou” and “Sulke Gooites”, so I “Gooied sommer” lotsa “Klippe” on the heap and even contemplated leaving a cold one on the “Klippe” for the Gods to drink for lotsa good luck and the other “Gooites”, but then decided against it as I was “Moerse”  more “Dors” than them.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2092_zpssrtwwvyo.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%2092_zpssrtwwvyo.jpg.html)

Now a ”Ou” can “Sommer” go all of the way to the bottom of this “Moerse” deep hole and go and “Trap” around at the bottom and if you wanted to you could walk for 70km or so and go to Ais Ais. Huh!!! “F… nee man” you know how many cold ones a “Ou” is gonna need to take a “Trap” like that, beside I always say that if my “Boney” can’t go there, then I don’t want go there either.

The start of this “Mal” foot path.

“Doer” down there is where a” Ou” is gonna walk.

Sometimes we miss the smaller things nature has to offer.

Same bush but closer up and it now looks like a tree.
Brilliant hey.

Now if I philosophy about this for a bit,  it makes a “Ou” wonder how small we are out here as to some other “Gooites” before I made it a big tree it must of looked “Moerse” big to them.

I admire some more views of the possie. “Mooi Ne” (He He)

An even “Mooier” view, “Jis Laaik” but nature is “Mooi”

We hops on our ”Boneys” and we head of into the sunset. “Nope” we just “Gooi” them into gear and go to this possie.

I take a few pics to show you “Ous” how “Mooi” this possie is and whilst I’m having another cold one I start scheming  that these “Ous” over here might need a mechanic as they have lotsa broken cars and bikes and “Gooites” and other “Gooites” lying around.

I is a clever "Ou" and can checks out my spelling mistakes, so i "Sommer" fixes them. See

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20109_zpsmd2roc7t.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20109_zpsmd2roc7t.jpg.html)

Now even inside of this place they have “stukkende” “Gooites” “Agge nee man” I think they should really make a plan and get some “Ou” to fix these “Gooites”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20110_zpsdfgpsbjd.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20110_zpsdfgpsbjd.jpg.html)

Although some of them is still looking “Mooi” they don’t want to start, and the “Auntie” other there “Sommer”” Goois” a “Ou” a “Moerse” “Skeuwe” cross look if a “Ou” tries. He he

Now I is not a “Bang Ou”, but that “Auntie” did look “Nogal Skrikerag” to me so I “Sommer” left the “Gooites” alone and “Maar” just took photies of the “Gooit” he he

They even have this “Lekker” stuff so that a “Ou” can make his own “Hooligan Juice”.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20115_zpscewmztex.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20115_zpscewmztex.jpg.html)

See a “Ou” doesn’t even need to bring tools with, there is “Sommer” tools there.

As I’m taking all of these “Moerse” nice photos to show you “Ou’s” all of these “Mooi Goed” at this possie I start to dehydrate, but in the middle of this possie is my favourite place, a place to get cold ones and other cold “Gooites” to drink.
So now I’m feeling like all “Lekker” brave so I decide to mix my “Dop” and I “Bestel” a “Wait for it wait for it a” Smirnoff Spin”. Aha!! Aha!! Now what you “Ous” got to say??

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20127_zpsvmgjshot.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20127_zpsvmgjshot.jpg.html)

See what happens when a “Ou” mixes his “dop”. I “Sommer” start to see things like my good mate Tommy Transaap hanging around the joint. He he

I scheme seeing that I is seeing things I better go outside.
Dam here’s more “Stukkende Goed”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20129_zps2os00e4t.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20129_zps2os00e4t.jpg.html)

And then I check out these two “Moerse Mooi” “Boneys” in the distance of some “Ous”
Hey “Wag n biekie” that’s our “Bonyes”, “shit note to self”, don’t mix Smirnoff with cold ones.

Ian catches up.

A sign

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20191_zps1tivt3qn.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20191_zps1tivt3qn.jpg.html)

The road continues.

Another tree.

Another sign. An airstrip in the middle of bloody nowhere.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20194_zpsjtx7hnn7.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20194_zpsjtx7hnn7.jpg.html)

I looks left and right and then I goes forward, as i pass the airstrip it comes to my weary brain that it “Sommer” like doesent help looking left and right, but that a “Ou” should look up when his doing the looking around thingy. “Bloody dumb Ass”

Any ways we goes onwards on these “Lekker” roads.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20195_zpshvein7e2.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20195_zpshvein7e2.jpg.html)

We see the Lodge in the distance.

I scheme Ian is thirsty cause he rides with a “Moerse Spoed “to get there.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20197_zps5yh3frtx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20197_zps5yh3frtx.jpg.html)

We are finished riding the “Twins” for the day so we clime off of them. He he

These “Ous” over here is so happy to see us two Dinosaur “Ou”s that they “Sommer” give us some ice cold “Gooites” to drink.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20199_zpshyyhgckd.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20199_zpshyyhgckd.jpg.html)

Ian like “Smaaks” the drink.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20200_zpsxn4fwcjy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20200_zpsxn4fwcjy.jpg.html)

Me I don’t “Smaak” it so I gets myself a tequila and “Lemoensap”
Now this is a man’s drink. Not that tea stuff. “Yuch”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20201_zpsv3kat8wy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20201_zpsv3kat8wy.jpg.html)

Then we goes to find our possie for the night.
Ok we finds it.

Ian takes a “Trap” to this lookout point. I Lie “Lekker” comfy on my bed. That’s him in the white circle.

Night time once again starts to creep up on us. But not before we manage to take this pic.

Now I don’t know if it’s just me, but I don’t think these “Ous” is all “Lekker” up there as they put on hot clothes and sit by a fire in this heat. Ooops sorry buddy dident see you sitting there.

It’s a wee bit dry out here I thinks to myself, and I also thinks that if a “Ou Goois” water in these river “Gooites” then the “Vise” will “sommer verdrink”

We reach our destination for the night where we will once again put up our tents in the middle of nowhere so that the sun can beat its hotness on us two “Ous”, but we is not worried as we is the Two “moerse” strong “Ous” and we can take the punch.

We take to the dusty roads of Nam.
Ian’s bike checks out the scenery.

We does “Gooi n draai” up to the top of this road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20305_zps9fxfbhyj.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20305_zps9fxfbhyj.jpg.html)

See top of this road. Now Ian takes some time out to make a documentary about the New Twin.

Ian eventually joins up to me as I’m on my way back. We decide to stick to our original route for a while and head back to the C14.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20310_zps5zm4ervq.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20310_zps5zm4ervq.jpg.html)

So as we is cruising along this C14 we see a possie next to the road that attracts us two “Ous” so we “sommer” likes stops and we do this.

Now this road is a bit boring so we does decide to take the D808 and go and “Verken” it.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20315_zps7c4784gh.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20315_zps7c4784gh.jpg.html)

Now some times these decisions just turn out the best, this was one of them.
Check out the road surfaces as we went deeper in. Just amazing how it can differ in 30km

Eventually I get to this T-junction where I find Ian doing this; I’m not sure what this is so I just looks at him, then I waves at him and shows him the thumbs up. He he.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20325_zpsf20kwwp4.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20325_zpsf20kwwp4.jpg.html)

I leaves him to do what he was doing cause he seems happy to be doing whatever he is doing and I “Goois” a left turn and I finds some more “Lekker” roads and scenery.

But eventually the road runs to this.

The “Boneys” are running a bit low on fuel so we “Goois” a left and we goes to fill them up, but on our way we find some strange “gooites”.
A sign of a different kind

This “Ou” and his wife and “laaitie” just sitting in this old pick up.
Now I don’t think these “Ous” have thought this problem out as I check out that they have stolen the wheels off olve this “Bakkie” Now I’m contemplating to myself if I should go and speak to this “Ou’ and tune him about this problem, but “Nooit” man I only have one cold one left and as you “Ous” no a “Ou” always has to contemplate over these “Gooite” problems with a cold one or two, so I “Sommer” decide right then and there to leave this “Ou” alone and go look for more cold ones and also “Sommer” to get something inside of my “Maag” as I’m getting “Stukkened” hungry again.

Tummies are all full, “Boneys” tummies are all full, spare cold ones for the road are harvested, cool we can now proceed along our merry way, which of course we do.

I hears a” Boney” coming and checks in my mirror and sees Ian coming up with a “Moerse spoed” he he.

So it’s that time again and “Yes” we fill up our “Boneys” tanks again as we have ridden so “Lekker” between the daisies that, Ag shit man that was another ride (Dam cold ones affecting the brain here) I mean we was riding on those “Lekker” roads to get here and to go where we is going again. He he

No “Kiekies” in-between as we was riding on tar and there was not “Lekker” “Gooite” to take “Kiekies” of. Ok
Here is a “Kiekie” now and some more.

Time to relax a “Bietjie” as a “Ou” is a “Biekkie Moeg”.

The sun does once again decide it’s had enough of us “Ous” and decides to leave us, but not before it once again pours out a brilliant sun set for us “Ous” to see.

It’s time to get the fire a going and then it’s?? Wait for it wait for it
 Its Braai time, I mean a “ou” has to “Gooi” in some “Kos” into a “Ous Maag” so a “Ou” can feel all “Lekker” again. He he (Dam we eats a lot on these trips)

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20369_zpsrtpvgrbk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20369_zpsrtpvgrbk.jpg.html)

Wood “Gooites” all burnt down, so now we “Gooi” on the meats.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20370_zps2guxlo0x.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20370_zps2guxlo0x.jpg.html)

But of course when a “Ou” Braais the “Vleis” one has to have a cold one.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20371_zpskiv9bfom.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20371_zpskiv9bfom.jpg.html)

Man that was great a “Moerse lekker” braai with a cold one or two and “Lekker geselskap”, but “JA” a “Ou” also has to catch up on charging a “Ou”s batteries also, so its Zzzzz time again.

Day 7: Aonab Dam to Karibib (Not a planned stop) (This is where the trip starts to take a turn in the wrong direction)
482 km took us 11 hours to get there and another 3 hours to get a place to sleep at for the night) Our Route D1237-  C26 –  D1412 –  C28 -  D1953 -  B2 (Ian’s planning took us on some really shitty roads and through a private Game reserve, but dam man the scenery and ride was worth it, although the bikes took a lot of punishment.)

Nice and early, we have a quick graze whilst watching the sunrise.

We have been cruising for quite a while now and the turn off is alluding us “Ous”, so we is getting a bit worried.
Ian studies the map as we can’t find our turn of.

The C26 was the shittiest road so far, with loos stones and such, can’t ride slow as the bikes slips on them and to top it all we hit major corrugation.

Nothing for it, we push on and then there she is the D1412
So we “Goois” a right turn into the unknown, we does go where this road goes. He he

We go through a private game reserve with a few gates to open and close.
The view and road is amazing. (After the shitty road we just did this was relaxing), Well almost. He he Remember I’m still riding mostly on the front breaks due to the half brake pad on the rear. (Had a few heart stopping moments along route.) But was still fun.

We did find a few gates that we had to open and close along the way.

This was one of those heart stopping moments, I was checking a “Bokkie” out, no no not that type of “Bokkie with a Rokkie”, the other kind with a “Horing”, no no not that type either, dam it  was a “Fok man, n donnerse wilde bokkie” of some type. Ok  when i all of a sudden was on the top of the  lip of the road and i had to “Gooi” a right as well or els I was not gonna make it so a “Ou” has to “Gooi”  on some “heavy” back brakes to make it.

The Bokkie had “Sommer” disappeared although I did look and look and look for her, she was gone.

Our first flat for the day,I think I caught a “Klip”  I is not too much worried as we have flat tyre “Gooites” and a spare tube.

We “Goois” in the flat tyre “Gooites” and I takes off.
Huh I is stuck again as the tyre is once again flat. I “Rustegly” await for Ian to catch up whilst I take some more “Mooi” photos

We fill up the tyre with the flat tyre stuff again and once more I’m outa there with a “Stink Spoed”.

Well 50km down the road and it’s still a holding, but now I’m starting to run out of petrol and we are not sure how far we still have to go.
We turn of the C28 and lucky for us we come across a small town in the middle of nowhere. We buys ourselves a coke and ask if they have some petrol. They explain how to get to the pink house, as they should have some petrol for us.

The pink house, The gods are once again smiling at me as yes she can help us with 5 lt at R100.00dollars, well beggars can’t be choosers so we fork over the “moola” and we gets some liquid gold.

“Gooi” a right and we head of. The locals have told us we still have 70kms to go

Just as we get comfy, hah there it is again the wobble on the handle bars.

Bloody puncture is back, we haven’t got enough flat tyre left so we gonna have to replace the tube.

Of comes the wheel and surgery begins.

Wheel back on and I’m packing up kit, Ian tunes me the bloody wheel has just gone flat again.
F… man we must of “Knuiped” the bloody tube. We still have a little Flat tyre “Gooites” left, Ian sprays it in whilst I “Gooi” the kit back on the bike.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20439_zpsjiurp5kq.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20439_zpsjiurp5kq.jpg.html)

I hops on the “Boney” and take off like a bat outa hell.
We still have 50km to go. 20 km down the road I feel the unmistakable handle bar shaking coming, so I gear down and just open up to 110 +km’s and air born the tyre as much as possible (Not recommended for the faint hearted)(Remember I still haven’t got decent back brakes aswell.)

I can see Karibib, but to get to it I have  7km of tar to do, well so be it, there aint much els for it but to push on.
Finally a garage where we can make a plan to repair the tubes.
Dam they don’t keep no Bike tubes, I phone Duneworks in Swakopmund, they have my size, Dam no not my size, I mean the front tyres size. Man you “Ous” don’t think like “Lekker gooites” again. I tunes them to “sommer” keep 3 of them one side for me.

Hah. The last tube is shredded, there aint nothing left but pieces of it.
Now the other tube has two holes in it. One is the size of R5.00 coin, the other just a small hole, we are amazed that the flat tyre “Gooites” held. So the strenuous job does start in “Alle Erns” to fix dis tube.

We try and patch the tube, after 2 hours we have patch pieces on patch pieces but they are holding at least. Its 19h00 and the chap who own the place is “Moeg” and he manages to catch the tube as we put it in. Of comes the tyre we repair the two holes he made and I refit the tyre. No probs it’s holding although the beading hasn’t popped out yet so as I turn and give Ian the thumbs up, he decides to push the pressure up to 4 Bars. Its 20h30. You “Ous” can guess what happened, well I tune Ian stuff it this is now tomorrows problem as the tube slowly deflates.
We manage to find a place at some country lodge whereby we put up the bikes and go and have a late meal.

I opt for some cold ones

Day 8: karibib to Swakopmund (Not the planned stop over)
209km Took us 4 and a half hours to get there. (All Tar)
Up early once again

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20446_zpshunalzhx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20446_zpshunalzhx.jpg.html)

Go and check out the wheel, Yip she is still “Pap”.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20447_zps326lunt1.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20447_zps326lunt1.jpg.html)

“Gooi” on the pump and pump it to 2.4 bar. Time it how long it takes to go flat.
20minutes. Mmmm if we stop every 20km and pump it, we can reach Swakopmund where we can get help.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20448_zpsmnewmh9j.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20448_zpsmnewmh9j.jpg.html)

Pump up the tyre, “Gooi” petrol in and I’m off down the road.
20km out I pull of and connect the pump. “Fokkel”, she want pump. So with a flat front tyre we are once again back on our way to Karibib to see if we can make a plan.

We can’t get the Tube patched, but just then a taxi pulls up with a “Waintjie” so I convince this “Ou” for 400.00 dollars to load me and the bike up and to drop us of at Duneworks Yamaha in Swakop, seen that he is going that way, it’s a bit of a bonus for him. He agrees and we loads the Twin on the trailer.

I tune the “Ous” what’s wrong with my poor “Boney” whilst Ian goes and finds us a possie for the night as we have made no arrangements as this was not where we was supposed to have been. We was supposed to have gone to White lady lodge (Brand berg) area.

Dam I’m “Sommer” impressed, not only do they sort the front wheel out, they have a second hand brake pin bolt lying around as well  and also “Sommer” new “Brick skoene” and “Sommer nog” spare tubes for our “Boneys” as well as the flat tyre “Gooites gooit”

Ian manages to find us a possie for the night.

We go back to the Bike shop and,” Walla” my “Boney” is all ok again. I’m “Sommer” feeling much better.
We decided to go and “Verken” Swakop and see if anything has changed since we was here last.

Nope the see still looks the same.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20458_zpsqaxkqqjd.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20458_zpsqaxkqqjd.jpg.html)

Now we is “sommer” like hungry “Ous”, so we goes and looks for a joint to get something to eat, as I tuned you ous we is “Honger”
Mmmm a “Lekker” hamburger and chips for only $120.00 dollars and we wash it down with a cold one or two.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20460_zpswx1yjjqp.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20460_zpswx1yjjqp.jpg.html)

Day 10: Swakopmund to swakopmund.
140 km Whole day to do it..

Up not so early and talk some “Kak” and we does decide to go and ride around and to suzz out the area Walvis Bay and such “Gooites”

We check out all of these “Skippe” on the sea as we cruise “Moerse” fast on our “Boneys”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20511_zps48rh3jvy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20511_zps48rh3jvy.jpg.html)

We even check out this “Moerse Groet” possie, but “Nooit” they was still closed so we could not contribute to their establishment by having a cold one or two by them.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20512_zpsm5qjlkwz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20512_zpsm5qjlkwz.jpg.html)

But we did manage to see some Dolphins “Goofing” in the sea and some birds flying in the sky “sommer” from the road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20513_zpsprk7obaz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20513_zpsprk7obaz.jpg.html)

I even took a photo of this “Mooi” thingy just lying there

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20514_zps5eomq83l.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20514_zps5eomq83l.jpg.html)

And then I checked out the big boats again.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20515_zpsifmpprry.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20515_zpsifmpprry.jpg.html)

On our way back to Swakopmund we stops and checks out some “Gooites”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20516_zpsq8txqpwk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20516_zpsq8txqpwk.jpg.html)

And then I check out these “Ous Sommer” having some fun and I gets to think what a “Lekker” time the Rug rats will have on those “Gooites” even if its “Moerse Koud” over here by the sea.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20518_zpsizuqnmnp.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20518_zpsizuqnmnp.jpg.html)

I takes this photo so you “Ous” that haven’t been here can check out how close the “Pad” and the sea is.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20519_zpsk1ogdzms.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20519_zpsk1ogdzms.jpg.html)

They even have “Ous” that catch fish over here by the sea, but I didn’t take photies of them.
But I did take a photo of this possie.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20521_zps1ticstge.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20521_zps1ticstge.jpg.html)

And they sell lotsa “Goed” for a “Honger” “Ou” to eat.. Here is there “Pryse” in case you “Ous” want to make a quick “Draai” and go eat there.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20522_zpsrqegg5ns.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20522_zpsrqegg5ns.jpg.html)

They even have this big this big thing over our “Koppe” it’s there to keep the rain out, or too stop the birds from “Kaaking” on a “Ous Kop” or both I scheme. he he

Now for some stupid reason there was a lot of Tourists staring at me whilst I enjoyed my cheese cake and cold one. Huh!! A “Ou” would think they aint used to people eating cheese cake or something.

But alas as much fun as we was having the day made a move and tuned the sun to go away.
See the sun is going away. But before it could, I quickly took out my camera and took some more photies as it disappeared on us.

190 km. Took us 5 hours to get there.

"Seeing "Snaakse Gooites"

Now when we was in Swakopmund we did try to get a permit to go to this possie Maribib, but because we does ride bikes, we was tuned by the official “Ous” that we could not get permits. I even tried to bribe these “Ous” and offered them one of my beloved cold ones, there was no way I was gonna other them two cold ones, even thou there was two of them “Ous” there, but still the answer was “Nee”.  We decided to “Maar” take the chance and go anyway.

Now somewhere along here our most intelligent “Braincels” left us as we took spare petrol with, but no extra water. Huh!! We is going to a possie where there is no water or shade to get there and it’s above 40 degrees Celsius all of the time. (We was not thinking to brightly I thinks)

The road in the beginning of our epic ride to get to Maribib Camp Site did not leave much to the imagination.

But we did eventually come across this possie in the middle of bloody nowhere.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20542_zpsdxrwrmkr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20542_zpsdxrwrmkr.jpg.html)

And to top it all a couple of kilos away from this possie is

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20543_zpspwsnearb.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20543_zpspwsnearb.jpg.html)

I scheme this “Kerk” is so far out for a reason. The “Ous” that were “kuiring” the night before will “Sommer” sober up “Nogal” fast by the time they get to it as its “Nogal” far to walk and its  “Moerse” hot here as well. He he.

Now we is not those “Ous” and we is a lot cleverer, so Ian just rides up to the “Kerk.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20544_zpsfkb32fdm.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20544_zpsfkb32fdm.jpg.html)

And then he rides back. He he.
See I told you “Ous” we is a lot cleverer than those “Ous”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20545_zpsv5swg0mh.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20545_zpsv5swg0mh.jpg.html)

We gets to this sign and still there is no sign tuning us that we need a permit thingy.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20546_zpswjxywbw4.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20546_zpswjxywbw4.jpg.html)

Not even this sign is not tuning us ……

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20547_zps2t0lldep.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20547_zps2t0lldep.jpg.html)

So we heads further out into the unknown

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20548_zpsg9r2732p.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20548_zpsg9r2732p.jpg.html)

We do see this.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20549_zpsh6srtmhu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20549_zpsh6srtmhu.jpg.html)

And we also see some

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20550_zpsmvkb1tvq.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20550_zpsmvkb1tvq.jpg.html)

But we still adventure on into the unknown as we is WD, we is The Two “Moerse” Strong Dinosaurs, We is Bikers

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20551_zpsyj8m0mcr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20551_zpsyj8m0mcr.jpg.html)

“Mooi Ne”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20553_zpsxmwkdcym.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20553_zpsxmwkdcym.jpg.html)

I comes along once again with a “Moerse spoed” Ian is now “Slim” so he takes a photo of me before I gets passed him.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20554_zpsttgchh6n.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20554_zpsttgchh6n.jpg.html)

And then he takes a photo of his “Boney” as well.
Why you “Ous” ask me?? Shit I don’t know. Maybe he just wanted to. He he

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20555_zpsqexdqyxh.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20555_zpsqexdqyxh.jpg.html)

I is “Sommer” far down this strange road I is riding on, but I takes a picture to show you
“Ous”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20556_zpsrliadbtx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20556_zpsrliadbtx.jpg.html)

Whilst I is taking this “Mooi” picture of this strange road, Ian Zooms passed me. He he

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20557_zpsjry24cdl.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20557_zpsjry24cdl.jpg.html)

Then this road turns even stranger.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20558_zps5s4uuoz1.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20558_zps5s4uuoz1.jpg.html)

And stranger.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20559_zpsng0dh9n2.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20559_zpsng0dh9n2.jpg.html)

I takes this “Mooi” photo.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20560_zpsgbt8lztz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20560_zpsgbt8lztz.jpg.html)

Huh somehow I has over taken Ian, but I does not remember doing it. See I told you this road is strange.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20561_zpspy4r7kcs.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20561_zpspy4r7kcs.jpg.html)

We go onwards, there is nothing out there.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20562_zps6s1yyaw1.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20562_zps6s1yyaw1.jpg.html)

We is now getting “Skrikerag” as we don’t see any form of life and the more cold ones I  is drinking the stranger this road is getting. I decide we must take pictures of us as if we get “Abducted” by “Aliens” or some other “Gooit” happens to us then you “Ous” can identify us two “Ous” from the photies we took.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20563_zps9f2ueqvf.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20563_zps9f2ueqvf.jpg.html)

We have no choice but to continue on and Ian heads of.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20565_zpskxsb3uto.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20565_zpskxsb3uto.jpg.html)

Just then I see this tree, now im wondering to myself if it is a tree and not something disguised as a tree.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20566_zpsuot5ww9k.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20566_zpsuot5ww9k.jpg.html)

See I told you “Ous” that not everything is “Lekker” out here.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20567_zpsgyjbh1ng.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20567_zpsgyjbh1ng.jpg.html)

We wants to go and “Verken” the possie but then we checks out
this. Now we all no what this is “Right

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20568_zpsvovi5aqs.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20568_zpsvovi5aqs.jpg.html)

What a “Ou” sees here we all no is a cover up “Ne”
Yip I bet deep down “Onner Grond” they have those laboratories where they do those weird experiment “Gooites” and such on a “Ou” ( I have seen “Sulke Goed “ on DSTV.)

Ian quickly checks out which road we have to take to get us outa here.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20569_zpsykxfljmr.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20569_zpsykxfljmr.jpg.html)

And we “Goois” a “Stof wolk” as we head outa there down this deserted road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20570_zpslarrqnfk.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20570_zpslarrqnfk.jpg.html)

I checks some “Alien Gooites” checking me out.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20571_zpsmug3owyv.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20571_zpsmug3owyv.jpg.html)

But I is not “Bang” because my “Boney” is “Moerse” fast, so I does continue on.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20572_zps5tyty1df.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20572_zps5tyty1df.jpg.html)

As I round that corner and get over the hill, I checks this.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20573_zpszx5qkhj8.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20573_zpszx5qkhj8.jpg.html)

See I told you “Ous”.
Now I is “sommer” like certain there is something “Moerse” wrong out here, even these strange animals are checking us out I mean they didnent even disguise them properly, but left them “sommer Twee  Kleure”, I mean really what animal out there is like two colours?

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20574_zpshcfabjxn.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20574_zpshcfabjxn.jpg.html)

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20575_zpsvk2wqmh3.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20575_zpsvk2wqmh3.jpg.html)

So I “Goois” the “Boney” in gear and all you see once again is a “Stof Wolk” as I “F…off” Outa there.

And then we see this.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20576_zps26xvq8kv.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20576_zps26xvq8kv.jpg.html)

Against all ods, we have made it.

Ian finds some “Koolte”, The first in a couple of hours and he quickly pulls into the shade.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20578_zpsjkemxagy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20578_zpsjkemxagy.jpg.html)

Me I needs to go and check out and see if we is “Veilig” so I goes and checks out the rest of the possie.

I find some posies where other “Ous” must of hidden away from those alien “Ous”

We choose this one and the Twin stands guard.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20584_zpsqmzdlsjs.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20584_zpsqmzdlsjs.jpg.html)

We have a snack and drink some water and rest in the shade.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20585_zpsdk32n8nu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20585_zpsdk32n8nu.jpg.html)

I get this strange feeling and “Sommer” have some more water and I check Ian is also like having lotsa water, but not too much as we don’t have a lot of water.
It then hits me like a “Nat Lap in die gesig” maybe I / we is like having those hallucinations thingies. Like when a “Ou” eats those weird” mushroom” “Gooites” We  is having for lack of water, or maybe what we did just saw was what we did saw. He he

I finds this sign

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20588_zpsd4jh57n2.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20588_zpsd4jh57n2.jpg.html)

And this

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20589_zps1xhhq8jy.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20589_zps1xhhq8jy.jpg.html)

We takes a “Trap” and we goes and “Verkens” the joint, I mean a “Ou” cant be too careful nowadays

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20590_zpsktx3nd6e.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20590_zpsktx3nd6e.jpg.html)

We see this “Moerse groot” rock above our “Koppe”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20591_zps1c67h2ut.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20591_zps1c67h2ut.jpg.html)

And this smaller “Klip” as well.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20592_zpsiq3bnw8q.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20592_zpsiq3bnw8q.jpg.html)

But we is not “Bang””Ous” as we have crash helmets. He he

I takes a “Trap”, but still up to today I don’t know where I went, (Mmmm Strange “Gooites” happen out here I think). He he. I thinks I must go sit in the “Koelte” and have some more water.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20593_zpspqwfplcg.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20593_zpspqwfplcg.jpg.html)

Ian takes a “Mooi Kiekie”of me.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20594_zps7pvx2de7.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20594_zps7pvx2de7.jpg.html)

And another “Mooi” one.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20595_zps7ta9stcg.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20595_zps7ta9stcg.jpg.html)

Our camping possie

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20596_zpsxyahhh7h.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20596_zpsxyahhh7h.jpg.html)

The “Moerse warm” sun decides to start going away.
So I snaps a photo of it.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20598_zps6xfgcanu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20598_zps6xfgcanu.jpg.html)

And we quickly decide we must make our “Kos” for the night.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20599_zpsq1gv7nil.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20599_zpsq1gv7nil.jpg.html)

And still the sun goes down.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20600_zpss6pw3xdx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20600_zpss6pw3xdx.jpg.html)

We quickly cook our “Kos” before it is nigtime.
I has this “Lekker kos”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20601_zpsexbjmdxd.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20601_zpsexbjmdxd.jpg.html)

Ian had Maroccan Lamb. No photo to show you “Ous” his “Kos”

And still the sun “Saks”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20602_zpsiebag8gz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20602_zpsiebag8gz.jpg.html)

And out comes the stars.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20604_zpsrxhto6ns.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20604_zpsrxhto6ns.jpg.html)

Our camp is bathed in silence.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20605_zpseqepqrkg.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20605_zpseqepqrkg.jpg.html)

We checks out the stars and I’m “Dood””Seker” I see “Kosie and Piet” those little green “Tjommies” of mine flying pass in there space ship as I nod off to sleep.

Look

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20607_zps7dorkzql.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20607_zps7dorkzql.jpg.html)

Day12: Maribib Camp Site to Solitaire.
175 km. Took us 3 Hours to get there.

I awaken to a very weird smell, I checks around and then it dawns on me, it’s called fresh air.
I takes a few photos of the “Mooi” sunrise.

We has saved a bit of water to make some coffee and to clean the “Tande”
For some stupid reason I’m not seeing funny “Gooites” anymore.
Well we hop on our “Boneys” and we get out of there as we has almost no water left.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20611_zpsumeb1p8x.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20611_zpsumeb1p8x.jpg.html)

We ride this section of road which is just as bad as yesterdays as far as I can remember.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20612_zpshlsdnsfv.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20612_zpshlsdnsfv.jpg.html)

But it has some nice scenery on it.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20614_zps2ca8mqkl.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20614_zps2ca8mqkl.jpg.html)

Now here is a sign tuning us that we need a permit, Huh!! Does not make sense this. If a “Ou” comes in from the other side, you “Ous” all know. The strange road and other “Gooites” “Goed” stuff out there, then you “Sommer” don’t need one and you can ride on the road with your “Boney” as there is no sign tuning you that you can’t like these signs tune a “Ou” Confused?? Now you “Ous”no what I fell like. He he

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20616_zpsic12lo9k.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20616_zpsic12lo9k.jpg.html)

Now I haven’t even got a cold one left to contemplate this problem, so I “Goois” the “Boney” into gear and heads of down this road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20618_zpsqu3cowo6.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20618_zpsqu3cowo6.jpg.html)

Which soon becomes this road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20619_zpszlpbxjtu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20619_zpszlpbxjtu.jpg.html)

And then this one.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20620_zpsryn9tkfq.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20620_zpsryn9tkfq.jpg.html)

We crossers a bridge again.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20621_zpsxnhf6nev.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20621_zpsxnhf6nev.jpg.html)

The other side of the bridge.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20622_zpsts1wcz79.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20622_zpsts1wcz79.jpg.html)

Some “Mooi” scenery on the other side of the bridge.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20623_zpsyaph4ojt.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20623_zpsyaph4ojt.jpg.html)

We follow this road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20624_zpsrcwtbp5t.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20624_zpsrcwtbp5t.jpg.html)

And we is back on the main road.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20636_zpshg50fa45.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20636_zpshg50fa45.jpg.html)

The road has really turned out shitty due to all of the traffic on it.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20638_zpswxyislfd.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20638_zpswxyislfd.jpg.html)

But still offers some magic scenery to look at.

We reach Solitaire and I takes a few pics.

We has some water to drink, but we is still “Dors” and a wee bit “Honger”, so we go and get this to eat and drink.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20643_zpsiteg0pdp.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20643_zpsiteg0pdp.jpg.html)

I takes a photo of this old ”Boney” and other “Gooites”.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20644_zpshcfu3dwc.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20644_zpshcfu3dwc.jpg.html)

This pool did come to my “Redding” as I spent most of the day in it.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20646_zpso5t3ozer.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20646_zpso5t3ozer.jpg.html)

And lying down under this “Lapa” having a cold one or two.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20647_zpsetjenplf.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20647_zpsetjenplf.jpg.html)

But before I did that, I went and had a cold one or two.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20648_zpsvxzru6xx.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20648_zpsvxzru6xx.jpg.html)

And i even “Gooid” the old charm out on the fairer sex.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20649_zpsfuwx8ubf.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20649_zpsfuwx8ubf.jpg.html)

But alas they speak a other ”Taal”, so I gave up and had a $100.00 dollar hamburger.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20652_zpsvsevkyna.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20652_zpsvsevkyna.jpg.html)

And then went and had a few more cold ones.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20653_zpszzyxgu47.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20653_zpszzyxgu47.jpg.html)

And done some more swimming in the pool, for some strange reason my body felt as if it was absorbing the water.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20654_zpslkh673rz.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20654_zpslkh673rz.jpg.html)

But “Ja” the sun was going to start going down again, so we took us a ride to this possie to check it out.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20655_zpsxlgrvbtn.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20655_zpsxlgrvbtn.jpg.html)

We even took with us some cold ones.

But as we opened Ian’s cold one the bloody top broke off, but we held it upside down and only “Morsed” a little to get the glass pieces out. i mean a"Ou" just cant waste a cold one hey.

Day 13: Solitaire to Betta Campsite.
230km Took us 8 Hours to get there. (Not for the faint and weak hearted)

As I was gonna put my “Rugsak” on, I noticed the piping had cracked again, so I mades a plan with the local mechanic ”Ou” to weld it.

He is so excited and “Sommer” wants to ride my “Boney”. Now I schemes to myself that hey maybe he has heard about us two “Moerse” Strong Dinosaur “Ous” and I will “Sommer” make his day and take him for a spin. Now when I took him for a spin I felt the Twin miss a little whilst I was riding, so when I got back I checked that the terminals on the battery was “Vas”. (Should of checked a bit further than that), They was “Vas’. Mmmm was most probably my imagination I schemes to myself.

We packs on the gear on our “Boneys”.

We “Goois” a right over here by this sign because it tunes to us that we must.

I takes a photo of this poor okie with the one “Horing”.

I hit the start button and nope there’s “Niks. F…kel. Naade , My donnerse bike is so dood soos n mossie”. This is where the “Shit” hit the F….ing fan. I pushes it under a tree and checks the fuses, yip they is all ok Now what the hell’s  wrong.
Something tells me to try and jumper her with the Q-Power gadget that we bought as it is made for this type of problem. She fires right up, but as soon as I take of the Q-Power she “Vreks” (The Q-Power is only made as a booster, so you can’t ride with it as it kicks out after 3 seconds). So it’s a battery problem I tells to myself and Ian.

There’s a garage about 7km away so out comes the tow ropes and Ian tows me to the garage so we can check out whats wrong.

A Bit interesting tow as we head down the road to the garage at 60km per bloody hour, but yip we does make it.

Now to figure out what the hells the matter with the battery. Mmmm it’s dry, there’s like almost no acid left in the cells. Neither the shop nor the garage has battery water or acid, so I get them to boil the kettle so I can get pure water. We waits for the water to cool off before filling up the battery.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20685_zps4wkiymhv.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20685_zps4wkiymhv.jpg.html)

The other twin waits patiently for us to repair its “Maaikie”

We jumper it again and she takes and seems to be holding its own, so we pack up “Gooi” petrol in and with a smile on our faces we is off again.

We are about 50km out of Sosusvlei when the shit starts, the bike is missing, if I give her tap she loses power, but there’s nothing for it now but to push on, if I’m lucky I get to 60km, shes jerking and spluttering and I’m trying to coax her along by playing with the petrol.

All of a sudden she picks up revs and I can feel the power come back into her but then she stutters and gives one last jerk and dies on me.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20689_zpsmrqh91tm.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20689_zpsmrqh91tm.jpg.html)

She has given her all. We have to make a decision about her. Do we shoot her and put her out of her misery, or do we tow her to Betta Campsite. We decide to tow her to Betta Campsite which is still 60km away. I mean we can’t just leave her there can we, besides neither one of us two “Ous” has a gun. He he (Ooops) Ian towed me 80km to Betta im bad

We tie the tow rope onto my right side crash bar. I wanted to make a V but Ian said this way is better so I did believe him.

We still have a far way to go.

These?”Bokkies” cross the street whilst we are busy with the bikes.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20695_zpslazcikl5.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20695_zpslazcikl5.jpg.html)

We is of. Now as we cruising down the sand road it’s as if I’m getting pulled sideways and I’m battling to keep the “Boney” from “Donnering” down, I’m waving at Ian and jumping up and down but for some bloody reason Ian does not see me, eventually after about 10 Km at 70 km per hour I’ve had enough and I hit brakes and we come to a standstill, let me tell you okes that its bloody hair raising and the old heart missed a beat or two in some places.

Ian asks what’s wrong and I tune him that we can’t tow like this as we gonna “Donner” down, I’m fighting the sand to keep her straight and I’m also fighting my handle bars as you pulling me sideways.
We are gonna tie the tow rope in a V formation as I wanted to from the beginning.
Ian has his doubts, but hey at that moment I could not give a shit. Whilst I tie the rope onto both crash bars Ian takes a photo or two of these “Bokkies”

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20696_zpsvjbu1a93.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20696_zpsvjbu1a93.jpg.html)

We are ready to go, the tow rope between both bikes is now in a v formation.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20698_zps7je1ukdu.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20698_zps7je1ukdu.jpg.html)

Im ready to go.

We is off Again.  Now “Sommer” at once, I can feel the difference, I’m not getting dragged sideways anymore. Ian must also be feeling the difference as he speeds up to 80kms. Now we have decided that if this way works we will stop at every 10km to catch a breather. After 10km Ian pulls up and we have a rest. Now it aint easy to get towed on the bloody sand as I have to keep my front wheel lined up with his bikes back wheel and the sand “Goois” a “Ous” “Boney” around.

We do another 10km and we pull off again, and another. No incidents except a few small hair raising sand patches and loose sand now and again OH!! And my bloody nerves are shot and I’m only running on adrenalin most of the time.

I have run out of water and we still have 20km to go, I can’t ride with an open visor or jacket as Ian’s “Boneys” back tyre is “Gooing” me with stones every now and again and I’m also catching all of his “Stoff” but hey I aint got a choice. Ian of course is the lucky one as he could ride with his jacket and visor slightly open. I tunes Ian lets go.

We have gotten a bit “Mak” and as we come around a bend, Ian catches a lot of deep loose sand and powers up, me on the other hand has no power to power up and I’m all over the bloody place trying everything to keep the bike up, she eventually careers left towards the sand bank. I can see Ian checking me out in his mirror and I start leaning to the right, but still she carries on towards the side. I make a quick decision to hit the back brakes with the hope that I can bring the bike back to the right with a slide, and as I hit the brakes Ian decides to power up, I slide the bike slightly over and let go of the brakes and with both actions taking place in a matter of seconds and at the same time I manage to get my “Boney” behind his again.

A short distance later on solid ground Ian stops. My heart is still racing as I guess so was his, adrenalin is pumping through the veins, I see everything still in slow motion. I look around and See Ian smiling, Swet running down his face and I catch myself smiling and laughing at the same time. I give him the thumbs up and tell him to get us to Betta Campsite.
“Pap Nat Gesweet” we arrive at Betta and pull over. Some tour guide “Ou” takes one look at us and gives us a bottle of water each. Dam I can’t remember water tasting so good.
Its just bloody “Lekker” to be able to get the jacket of and to cooooool off.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20701_zpseczcb2yq.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20701_zpseczcb2yq.jpg.html)

They have a small shop here and we buy some more water and a coke to replenish our strength. How neither one of us two got sun stroke or dehydration till this day I don’t know.
(Both of us two “Ous” had run out of water about an hour ago. The temp was sitting as 48 Degrees Celsius). (We towed the bike the last 25km without a drop of water.)
Ian orders us a sandwich, I take a bite but I can’t swallow it as my throat is still too dry so I gives it too him whilst I “Rustigly” drink a cold one.
They have 6 rooms We book two rooms for the night.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20702_zps02e4b06u.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20702_zps02e4b06u.jpg.html)

Well we here and after a shower or two and a few more cold ones or two I start feeling like a “Mens” again. They have a battery charger which i lend and put the battery on charge with the hope that it will take a charge overnight.

We manage to get some “Skaap tjops” and other ”Gooites” foe a Braai and settle down and “Lag” and wonder at how we did not come pipe and talk away as the sun sets and we have us a “Lekker” Braai.

Day14: Betta campsite to Betta campsite for me. (The Decision)
Day 14: Betta campsite to Aus Vista for Ian.

"The start of the recovery"
We are up early.

We’re hoping the battery took a charge.
Battery connected, let’s hope for the best.
Dash lights are burning bright which is a good sign; I hit the start button and nothing. The battery is dead.

Now I always carry a spare charging regulator with me as the old AT’s are known to have regulators pack up on them but for some bloody reason it was left behind in Klerksdorp by Tappets house and without it we are not sure if we can get home, as we suspect it was this that over cooked the batteries water out. We also can’t get the right size battery, Duneworx at Swakopmund   have a 9 n, the AT takes a 11 n, it’s a smaller battery and the polls are on the wrong side. I make the decision that I have (fetch me insurance) on the bike so Ian must carry on with the trip.
I had forgotten about it, but my clever daughter and son had already phoned them and had gotten the ball rolling the previous day already.
 
After a bit of arguing about it as it is senseless that we both sit here and wait for help to come. It’s decided . Ian will continue on, do the D707 and go to Klein Aus Vista and end of the trip by his self.

08h00 and I let the kids no to get hold of Peer my insurance broker ( Alegro on the WD site and let him make further arrangements to get someone to fetch me) A while later he phones me and says “Buit vas” I will phone you back in a few.

Ian is packed and we say our goodbyes and he is off.
Alegro phones back, I’m only covered for R10 000 00 and the recovery is gonna cost R30 000 00, I almost flip, these guys are charging R10.00 a kilo as I’m 1500km from home, hence the 30k.
I tune him to get hold of them and let them pay me the R10 000 00 and that I will get the kids to fetch me. He phones back, they have agreed so now I have to get the kids to come and fetch me.
They make arrangements and my son Albert and daughter Rozanne leave Pretoria that arvies at 15h00, they get 150km from home and the bloody “Bakkies” water pump packs up, Albert manages to get the “Bakkie” back home.( They is now out of action on this recovery)

Now it’s up too Tappet and my other Daughter Rolene and my grandson Peanut to get to me home. Tappet makes arrangements to get of work whilst Rolene gets a new wind screen fitted on the Isuzu and new Tyres and gets it through the test and all the other small “Gooites” that was wrong with it all in 1day. They have put another engine in it and it has to be red dotted to get the paper work up to date for the Border crossing. She manages to do the impossible and gets it all done, they will leave at 00h00.

Meanwhile I laze around and eventually start to get on my own tits from boredom as there is nothing here to do but suffer from the heat. Inside the room its 46 degrees Celsius, outside its 49 degrees Celsius, a cold shower now and again helps but only for a short while.

It’s still a beautiful world out here as the photos show.
A bit of a dust storm hits me.

Now for you “Ous” that haven’t been to Betta Campsite. It has a small shop where you can buy some food and cold ones and other “Gooites” a petrol station consisting of 3 Pumps and a few rooms and camping ground and a abolition block, that’s it.
I get me some “Wilds pastei”, a few cold ones some water and settle down for the night as the sun sets.

Meanwhile Ian has gone on and done the D707 and has phoned me at 10h30to tell me what a “Lekke” ride he had and that he is “Veilig” there and so on and that he took some “Mooi” photos.
His photos.

His enjoying the roads leading up to the D707.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20712_zpsi7lgw3yi.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20712_zpsi7lgw3yi.jpg.html)

And then it’s the D707 for him. This is his most favourite “Stukkie Pad” in the whole of Namibia, hang on I thinks in the whole world as he just can’t get enough of it.

Well it’s as they say all good “Gooites” must come to end.
Now he must “Gooi” a right to Aus on the C 14 which just aint the same after the D707

He “Goois” me a call from here bragging how “Lekker” the D707 was whilst he waits for a toasted sarmie. I “Goois” him back a few words #@$$&^%%^#$%@#$

His room and a “Lekker” view of his Twin

That D707 was great but had a serious stretch of super soft sand for about 1500m. I will post a video of it soon.

... and the black AT was towed for 82km exactly.

Day 15” Betta Campsite to Betta Campsite for me.  (Relaxing Day)
Day 15: Aus to South Africa for Ian

(The decision one makes)
Now here comes a lot of reading for you “Ous” Naaaf or not. He he
I had a short long day.


Wake up after a shitty night, had numerous showers through the night to keep cool. Have some left over pie for breakfast, speak to some couple and have a coffee with them. They have a few books, not really my taste of reading material, but I nab one and spend the day “Leeeesing a book and drinking cold ones and showering in coldish water.

Tappet was supposed to get here today, they over slept and only left at 04H30, so no rescue awaiting for me today. $#%@$$%$%^$%

Night time comes around and another couple have taken a room behind mine. Im busy buying “Sosaties” (For you Engelsmanne “Meat on a stick” and they tune me to join them for a Braai.
Now a bit of company and I don’t even has to braai my (meat on a stick “Sosatie” thingies alone), and they seems to be nice “Ous”.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20724_zpsk1e2rzei.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20724_zpsk1e2rzei.jpg.html)

Huh!!  Well just goes to show, I was “Moerse” wrong, they was a nice couple, but I was wrong in my judgement as to a “Rustige” night with good company, as they never stopped chatting and within the next few Hours my world turned into a nightmare as I now know their whole family and work and smallest detail about their bloody lives and lots more.

I was major trying not to be rude, but hey man after I had finished grazing I made a beeline outa there, silence just “lekker” peaceful silence, what a blessing to just have silence.

Had a cold one just listening to the peacefulness and night life sounds and called it a day.

Day 16: Betta Camsite to Upington
1587km Whole day plus some.

(The Rescue)

Tappet on a mission.
Up early as it’s already too hot to lie around. Have a cup of coffee greet the neighbours and disappear.

The twin waiting patiently to be rescued.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20732_zps6mbtzojc.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20732_zps6mbtzojc.jpg.html)

Phone my daughter, Tappet has left 01h00, but first had to put petrol in, so I calculate he should be here at about 10h00. Now peanut has come up with the kids but aint got a passport so he and Ro’lene stay at Riva Resort in Upington whilst Tappet comes to fetch me.
10h00 comes and goes, no bloody “Skoon Seun” in site. We can’t get hold of him as his phone goes straight to voice mail, 11h00 and now we is getting worried , at 11h30 i am busy making arrangements  to leave my bike and kit there and to go and “Soek” for him.
As I’m busy chatting to Ro’lene, I see the Isuzu coming down the road, I mean a “Ou” can’t miss it as there 4 spot lights on the roll bar and 2 on the grill. I “Sommer Sug van verligting”. I mean man all types of “Gedagtes” was “Gooing” themselves around in my “Kop” as well as my daughters. As he stops there, I don’t know if I want to “Klap” him a shot or greet him, I does “Maar sommer” do both.
Turns out his phone takes a micro “Sim” card and the one he bought is too big. I “Kakked” him out “Sommer” just then and gave him “Sommer nog a klap” against the “Kop” from the Aunties at the shop, he could of stopped somewhere and made a plan to just phone us and tune us what was going on. But then as he said he was cruising slowly as to make sure he got “Veilig” here. (Ok that makes it Ok again I suspose)

We goes to the room and loads up the Honda whist he grins from ear to bloody ear.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20733_zps8q3f8dyh.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20733_zps8q3f8dyh.jpg.html)

He enjoyed this as you “Ous” can see. It’s one of those till today “Gooites” that will never die as he still gets a kick out of having to come to my rescue.

I buy some coke and water for the road and thanks the shop Aunties for everything, settle my bill and we are outa there. Tappet refuses for me to drive as he really wants to rub it  into the wound that he drove 1587km in one day from Upington to Betta and back to Upington to fetch me. Beside the extra kilos from Klerksdorp and back which is an extra 1240km, in all the total kilos of 2943km to fetch me and the Twin.

A few photos of our trip back.

We cross the Border which goes surprisingly fast and head of for the Riva Resort. We get there about 21h30, “Moeg” but happy to be back.

(http://i1319.photobucket.com/albums/t675/alleni1996/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20741_zpslry6oadw.jpg) (http://s1319.photobucket.com/user/alleni1996/media/Nam%20me%20and%20Ian%202016/nam%20741_zpslry6oadw.jpg.html)

We sit around and chat a bit, have some food and a cold one or two and call it a night.

Well that’s I Guys and dolls hope you enjoyed the ride.

Distanced Travelled:  By Bike = 4371km. By Car and Taxi and Bike = 7198km

Petrol usage:                      A “Moerse” lot again.
Food Intake:                        Lotsa “Lekker Kos”
Bevarages:                          Lotsa Cold Ones, Smirnoffs, Hunters gold, Water, Coffee, Milk Shakes etc.
Tyres:                                  Both Bikes the same: E 10 in front: E 07 Rear
Cost:                                   Enough.

Ps:                                        No damage once again to any Fauna and Flora.
Pss:                                      Don’t dehydrate; you tend to see “Snaakse Gooites”
Pss:                                      Damage Report: Old A/T = 3 X Front Tubes, Rear brake pads, Slight damage
                                             to Rear Rim, New Battery , Rear brake pin bolt, Head light protector,                                                                           
                                             A frame of kit bag, replacement of steel plates clutch. Replacement of clutch       
                                             plates, replacement of Pressure Plate, Mine and the twins Pride,
Pss1:                                   Water  pump “Ford Bakkie”
Pss2:                                   Lap top stolen out of “Isuzu” on way back. 
Psss:                                   Was a “Helluva” ride and a great “Adventure”.               
Pssss:                                 Except for the clutch problem which was mechanical wear and tear, all
                                            the other problems experienced on this ride were due to human error.

Well we had us a different ride this time, turned out to be a good adventure and it tested our patience and skills, not just in riding, but in having to adjust and to make do without certain things like Bolts, tubes etc and what one can overcome and plans a “Ou” can make out there if you have too. We shared tube repairs and tube changing, minor repairs on the road, Thirst and dehydration, the frustration of losing valuable riding time, but in the end we still had a great ride and a good time.

                                     This is what a friendship is made of and is all about.

Ok ok. i suppose you "Ous" want to no what the problem was and the cause of all of the problems, well as i stated1 mechanical 2 human error we will start with no 1

1: Tubes/ punctures: Inner Rim tape (rubber) was taken out and replaced with bloody duct tape. The heat of the road and the environments heat all build up together loosening the glue on the duct tape causing it to shift. 
2: Spoke wheels: the spokes are basically moving due to vibrations, road surfaces etc thereby pushing though the tape into the tube causing the punctures.
3: Shredded tubes: Riding for a far distance at hi speed with a flat tyre, but mainly poor quality of tube.
4: Stretched tube:  This is caused by heat, Riding once again with a flat tube, heats up the tube and it starts to stretch via rotation.
5: Loosing Bolts: Well thats easy, Not tightening them properly. @#!@#@$#@$#$
6: The clutch and steel plates. The clutch (Friction plates) were not too bad. Wear and Tear, The steel plates, now this is caused by using once clutch a lot and also overheating it. (Playing in the sand) over using the clutch and also wear and tear.

Now the main culprit: The battery: Maintenance free "Gooites""Se Moer" Thees batteries need to be checked regularly as they loos electrolyte (Battery Acid) as per normal lead battery.  The jerking  and misfiring was caused by the battery shorting out (Bent plates inside) It was running between 3 volts to 10 volts and so forth, hence the jerking and loss of power. It eventually died due to no voltage coming through to supply power.  The first tell tale sign was the dip i had in power at Solitair. I checked the battery terminal but never thought to check the acid level of the battery. Remember thees bikes take a lot of hammering and the shaking and "Rukking" around and heat and all of thees stuff cause drainage on the battery acids. If ther is a over flow pipe or even if there isent one but a sticker on the top, it will be wise to check the battery levels before a trip. Ask me. we found out the hard way (Triple maintenance free) "Se "Moer"

Well done you old f*cks !
Another RR well worthy for nomination in the 'Roll of honour - best ride reports' section methinks.  :thumleft:

Ps - had a few cold ones with Allen on saturday. Confirm he easily added 20kg's around the waist.

hah hah......that area seems to be an XRV AT "Doodsakker"......

This is my one in 2014 - battery vrekked between Kuiseb Canyon and Solitaire. Dead short - also no warning. I think it was caused on the road between Uis and Cape Cross - have never come across such bad corrugations before.

Fortunately the bike shop in Walvis (forget the name) had a battery that fitted. Between that chap and a friend of Sakkie (the mecchie at Solitaire) they managed to get it out into the desert in one day! Fantastic help - felt quite humbled by the amount of effort that they went to.

We didn't have the option of towing - my mate was on a F650GS - he's a big oke, and there's no way that that bike could have managed the two of us and the vark AT - it would have overheated.

It must have been hectic spending that time at Betta.......not a heck of a lot going on there....!

Dankie vir 'n lekkerlees rr.  Man ek voel eintlik hoe julle die situasies deurgewerk het, frustasies en dan natuurlik ook julle avontuurlus.  En eventually, dis waaroor dit gaan, daai avontuur wat die hele trip maak, lekker en sleg.

Well done, hat off to both you and the bikes.
