Ah, I can see why it took you a bit of time to put all of this together. Great pics guys, and I'm loving every minute of your ride so far.

Can't wait for the next bit.

Seems these days a ride report is not complete without a KTM being towed.
Keep it coming!

ha-ha
Not true
Fun towed him until we reached the coast.
Then the uber BMW towed him to Swakop. About another 160 km.
The proof is attached
 ;D ;D
Plottie does not seem to happy to be towed.

OK, seeing as we have to wait for the next episode, bets on what the KTM issue was?

I recon after the fall you damaged the side stand or clutch switch.



I really want to go back there. Great report!
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

That was my guess to, but no it was not.
You will have to wait for Ploty to finish the report.
