Where is Hubert?... at Sidecar Africa this Saturday!!
« on: January 15, 2014, 01:05:35 pm »
Hubert of  thetimelessride.com   fame will be at Sidecar Africa this Saturday morning - 18 January - at 9 o'clock to give an informal talk about his escapades and travels around Africa and the world for the last 8 years on his Ural sidecar.

Jean Louis, who has been travelling for the last 4 years (2 on his KTM and 2 on his Ural sidecar) through South America and Africa will also be there to share some of their photos and general tales.

Having spent some time with these two travelers and having heard some of their stories I can highly recommend listening to them.

Bacon rolls and coffee/tea will be served and dogs get in for free... :)

You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

Yes indeed we had a fantastic morning and response with about 26 sidecarists and around 20 sidecars visiting! Hubert and Jean-Louis spoke about their travels, experiences and why they do what hey do, how they manage financially, how to get past your wife etc etc..... There was lots of time for people to have one on one discussions too and I think some guys really enjoyed this part of the morning. Hubert's biggest fan in South Africa, Dr Robbie Ross, also got to meet his hero see picture below...

Once you get into sidecars it will become a short term plan... :)

Whereabouts in EC are you. I may be coming down to Nieu Bthesda and De Rust soon and maybe I can take you for a spin...

I'm in PE, but always keen for a ride. Let me know when you there abouts and I'll see what my movements are. Thanks.
