Ten years ago.  Last time I was in Cape Town was New Year's eve 1973.  I was on my way by boat (RMS Pendennis Castle) from Durban to Southampton and in deep shit.  I'd decided to stay and watch a film twice in the cinema (Lost Horizon, for gawd's sake) without telling anyone, so my parents being the panicky type thought I'd fallen overboard.  I was confined to quarters, bad news when everyone else is partying and the show is about to start.

Had to sneak out of my cabin to watch the fireworks over Table Mountain...

Anyway, had an 1150 for a week.

Mrs 3D on the recently reopened Chapman's Peak road







Klein Karoo.  40 degrees and leathers.  Phew!



Boil in the bag biker...



Cango Wildlife Ranch near Ooudtshoorn (sp?)  BMW were launching the new 1200 at a fancy resort just down the road- tough gig for those journos eh?

Long Tom pass



Stayed in Hazyview for a couple of nights at the Rissington Inn.  Top place.

Bourke's Luck potholes





Near Pilgrims Rest



God's Window



Dumped the bike for a couple of days and went to Greater Kruger- Balule.













Piggs Peak?



Young Swazis



Xolile




Interesting experience riding that bike on mud with those tyres

Well there's a lot of awesomeness in Africa, even an idiot like me can capture some of it on camera.  :biggrin:

The road through the Caprivi



Do I really have to ride through this..?



Gift.  Cool guy.













Damn, could have easily gone to the left, but no time this trip



Right next to the road, not a common sight in Scotland...



Probably my favorite.  Ellies in the background, Chobe, Botswana





Bob, why are you still alive, you SOB.







Queue for the ferry at Kazangula (5km? :o)



Yeah.
