I had a trip to South Africa in march. This is my report from the trip. It´s in norwegian. But I hope you can enjoy it as well. This is how I presented yuor country to the norwegian bikers.

Fair enough.

It´s about ten pages of text in Norwegian. That´s too much for me to translate. And I miss many of the words.

It looks as if you guys had a great time overall.! ;D

Although I could not really understand the detail from the text, it seems like you had quite  a few problems with the bikes?  >:(

Hope to see you back in South Africa soon. The northern parts of our country are very different and equally beautiful! ;D

You are right, I have to return. It´s impossible to do South Africa in a Week. And we had problems with the bikes. We visited the BMW-dealer in George three days. And still we had to return bikes that wasn´t good enough. Hope they are checked well before anyone else hires them.

Tack så mycket Baron!

I'm stuck in north Sweden, and can't wait to get home to the Fairest Cape of them all.

Bollocks!
