Ok.   Day 2 part 2

I headed back ddown the mountain.....i always find going down easier than going up......just let of the brakes if things get sketchy and ride it out......
Just outside the resort i turned right onto what i think is called the wartrail road ?
Things were looking up sections of this road were nice and rough and tricky muddy sections made for interesting riding.......not to mention the scenery which is spectacular.....

Well, well, I only saw this update now. How you doing mate? I have done a trip to Tanzania and back in the mean time and succeeded in landing myself in hospital for reconstructive knee surgery after a fall in Tanzania.

Please keep on posting, bringing back great memories and I can't wait for the good parts still to come. Most of my photos were corrupted.
