Great RR! The pictures really show off some great places, and it's amazing to see how much the terrain varies.

As soon as I get my skill levels up a bit, and get some sand training under my belt, a lot of your route will definitely feature in one of my rides.

Thanks for sharing!  :thumleft:

I always think of a 640 as the most beautiful ugly bike in the world!

Hey, I was hungry ok? and the menu did describe it as a "small platter" :-) glad I did not go for the large one.... I am not too sure why but my phone did not log the whole route. In future I will pay a bit more attention to this, but most of it is logged. Hope this helps. You will see a lot of backtracking though.... 5 parts to the log

Thank you for the tracks :thumleft:

Not sure how to split the file - one option would be to upload it on a cloud like Google Drive or some file sharing site and then just post link here.

Would it be possible to get a copy of your track? The WWH , Flossie , Road Hog and myself are planning a trip down the West Coast in May all the way from Walvis to Cape Town and the intention was to go through most of the places you mention. Based on your photos some of those roads look very good for a ride and we would not want to miss out. You can PM me or alternatively by e-mail on martin@dormac.net . Would appreciate your assistance in this.

Seems like not all devices can open the samsung derived gpx files. I will resave them with Track Editor and repost as soon as my adsl line is up again..... hopefully soon....

After I resaved the gpx files with GPS Track Editor Basecamp can now open them so I hope this is more useful. Parts 5a and 5b was done before so here are parts 1-4 again
