Stunning pics!

Mother, is it you bike in the photos?  What tyres did you use?  I see two helmets. Did you have a pillion and how was it in that sand?

thanks.....love Namibia been going there for years....first time in 88.....
ride mostly 2 up last 7 years
Namibian roads are generally in good condition as they scrape the roads regularly for the tourists who visit in cars
it  can get a bit sandy here and there...but a fair knowledge of sand riding should do...no panic if you hit a patch and you will be fine
i highly recommend Namibia for dual purpose riders
it is a stunning place
Title: Re: Namibia in pictures....(motivate ur Namibian trip)
Post by: Mother on November 11, 2010, 07:10:44 am
oh... i ride a beemer and use TKC tyres....personally think anything that can do fair distance will do.... as the places are far apart
and because the roads are often graded it does not necessary have to be hard core knobblies

note....these are entirely my views from my experiences

Post by: Rooies on November 11, 2010, 07:15:44 am
Thanks,  this is a trip I very much want to do with the GSA and pillion.
What time of the year do you recommend?  Is May already too cold?

winter is the best .....yes its a bit nippy in the early morning and night....but the day time riding with all the kit is then the best
summer u gonna cook.....
ive been in both and find winter to be the best for me

just before and after mid winter is also good

lately me too.....in fact i wana go do the southern Namibia richtersveld area this Dec....
heat is a small price to pay....

it still remains worth the trip....
Title: Re: Namibia in pictures....(motivate ur Namibian trip)
Post by: MrBig on November 11, 2010, 07:29:06 am
Summer is fine just know that it's moer hot.
The biggest problem over Dec IMO is the roads are graded less regularly and some of the major routes gets very corrugated with high middelmanne and excessive gravel on the sides.
However, if I can do Namibia in December with a pillion on my Tiger I'm pretty sure you can too!  ;D


One from me - I can do this all day

haha...that would take some doing! I like the idea...

The guys who ride Namibia tend to be lonewolves or in very small packs  :)

It would be interesting to form a loose route & see who you can meet up with in the evenings associated with the ride? Don't know if i'd want to ride in a "big" group...big being relative of course.
I want the sense of solitude and open spaces that i 'own' for the moment to.

Most guys can only do it in December anyway...

yip agree with Pete

and you need time to do Namibia....the last thing you want to do is rush it...

Without 'jumping the gun'  :biggrin: the idea will rather be to gather on the Namibian side of the border than actually traversing the country.
There's some awesome riding in the immediate area - Gamchab canyon, Fish River Canyon, River road to ROsh Pinah and even the Richtersveld with a crossing at Sendelings drift.

What paperwork does one need? can I cross the border with a learner's licence, or do I have to go and play nice with the traffic cops one day? riding two-up is not going to be an option for a while, it seems.

Is it wise to do it with a pillion?

hahhaaaahaa....sorry but thats the plan if you havent been yet,,...u wont be sorry

i like sharing my rides with my pillion....in my case my wife now....its nice to share ur experience........ anyway i ride two up mostly nowadays

depends on ur skill with a pillion if u a nervous rider it might be a problem  ... if u hit some thick sand sections ...but
they are few and far between....if u hit a section of sand u must both learn to stand....

most of my Namibian experience is good gravel on the main gravel roads....its when u get to the remote places...they tend to not scrape the roads regularly....fortunately then sand is no problem....we been doing it for years

Those of you in the Karasburg area. My brother in law in memory of my late father in law is considering opening our gamefarm to Adventure bikers.

My father in law had a Gs 1200 adv and always talked to the passing bikers stopping at their Spar , drooling over their stories and trips. This is still in the "idea" phase, but the gamefarm has a fully kitted house for the hunters and can sleep 12 people easily and is about 23 km out of town located on a picturesque farm.

Just a note to those planning this trip.On our trip in December 09 ,no bikes or quads were allowed into mile 108.
The powers that be were absolutely adamant to the point that they were reluctant to let es through the boom to fill up with gas.

Awesome thread, thanks guys!  :thumleft:

Mother, if I may, 007 and I are planning our first two-up trip with our wifes next year. We're planning a 10 day (or so) trip. Although we are not planning to follow any hectic routes, I am sure we'll encounter a few sandy patches. Should we do a riding course together to get the standing thing going or is this something we can teach ourselves on the fly? Sorry for the quasi-hijack but I am sure the question bears relevance on a Nam thread. Thanks.
Title: Re: Namibia in pictures....(motivate ur Namibian trip)
Post by: MrBig on December 06, 2010, 09:19:11 am
From my experience the biggest problem for a pillion 'new' to a bad patch of road - particularly sand or corrugation - is the unfamiliarity with the movement of the bike under these conditions. As a rider you know (and expect) the back to move around but for the passenger this could be very disturbing and unexpected. Understandably this could lead to stress and fear which translates into an overall bad riding experience.

Even an introductory course could prove of great value as it will at least familiarize them with the proper technique of standing, holding on and weight distribution. However for this to have much real world benefits you'll need to put considerable practice into it.

But depending on the route you choose you might never need to get out of the seat anyway..

I am planning to go up for 2-3 weeks, ending back in CT around 1 May.
Not planning to do heavy offroad or sand, I want to go and see the country, so will be more main roads and touring, with lots of photo stops.  Going solo at the moment if anyone wants to join.

Sorry Guys, not quite a "ROAD"trip, but thought you may like some of the pics taken on a trip through Botswana and Namibia
(5 gyros, 9 days). These defenitely motivate me to do a road trip one day.
Also one day I've just got to do the RR of this amaizing experience.

Hey VA,
I could bore you guys with over 1000 pics of this trip.
You cover a lot of ground in a day so get to see a lot more destinations, but I do still want to do the biking and 4x4 options to compare.
Namibia is just the most exceptional place on earth.

You will never ever bore me with pics of Nam, like you rightfully said, "the most exceptional place on earth".   :thumleft:

We did Nam a year ago on the scoot over a period of 21 days and took more than 13 000 pics on that trip and each one tells a story.  If interested, see the RR here.

As you come in by the main entrance go due west, do not take any one of the little turnoffs, you carry on straight and you will see a "koppie" and eventually you will ride into / through it.  That is the spot from were this photo was taken.

If the wind is howling, stay away from that spot.

After seeing some of the stunning pictures in this thread I browsed through my collection and came across this "classic"
Not a very good picture - (mind you it was taken in 198?? with a Kodak Instamatic)

"Vinger van God" (as it was known) was a sandstone rock formation that succumbed to forces of nature late in 1988.
Located near Keetmanshoop, it was a popular tourist attraction of the time.
I am sure the Namibia dogs can tell us more about the history of the place

Namibia is food for my soul.

I will go there every year, but this year my wife said we must do KZN, Eastern Freestate and Mpumalanga.

In other words: crowds.

The Kaboef is not big on crowds.

I was born in the Kalahari, and every time I point my car's nose towards the N7 north, I get a stirring in my blood.

Hi Dogs

I am planning a trip to Namibia early Aug this year, on a 1200 GSA LC, no pillion.

Can anyone help with info on the condition of the road going from
Aus - Rosh Pinah - Sendelingsdrif - Aussenkehr - Vioolsdrif. 

On google maps I can see that it is C13 al the way.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

JJ

That distance is 160 kms. Sixty of that is tarred, slightly more now. From Vioolsdrift to Aussenkehr is tarred. From there is dirt but most times good , with a bit of corrigation. Last 20 kilos or so before Rosh Pinah is now tarred.

And the oryx.

The section from Ausenkehr to the Sendelingsdrif turn is magic.
You ride along the bank of the Orange river. Very nice piece of road that.
