1.Romboroad across Africa - The Test Ride

It was love at first sight. We knew we were meant for each other.

After three weeks of searching and organizations in Johannesburg finally I was ready to hit the roads.

The first destination - The mountains of the Blyde river canyon

The Test ride: [check out the video]

Thank you Guys!

From the Drakensburg I rode down to Durban Than Through the Transkay[wild coast] to the Garden route.

You won't believe, but when i stopped in Jeffrys Bay i met up with the guys from the Nitro Circus [The famous American freestyle riders] that were in a week tour in SA. i was invated to ride with them and had a great time together with lots of wheelis!

7.Romboroad across Africa - the motocross test


I decided it would be a good Idea to check the bike's capabilities before entering the desert of Namibia.

When it's  fully packed i got into a motocross track near Cape town.

This is what happened:
