Round-The-World, with 2 r-e-a-l Dogs, on a bike..!
« on: June 14, 2017, 01:14:33 pm »
This couple has just reached Cape Town, after completing all of South America and North America (well, as far as Canada, not Alaska), and they reached CT after coming down the WEST coast of Africa, then leaving on Saturday up the Garden Route, then on to Durban, the Kruger park, then out and up the EAST of Africa, exiting possibly at Cairo (if finances allow - Cairo expensive for getting 2 x bikes in...), and on to Europe.


(2 x BMW 650 singles, with up to 140,000km on the clocks...)



Originally from Oz, they travel the world with 2 dogs, in their own unique 'dog-house', which they have now commercialized after 2 years of testing, etc.
They have taken 1 spill at 70km an hour, dogs were fine, strong internal aluminium structure took the beating, so all ended well.


You can follow their journey on their Facebook page:

Lovely having met you both - a real inspiration, hope you get that 24-hour tent zip repair that Cristy Sports promised you, and let me know if I can help you further - within or outside of South Africa.


Ride safe, love those doggies!
Chris and the Team

absolutely inspirational. Thanks for posting Chris
Love your life. Take pictures of everything. Tell people you love them. Talk to random strangers. Do things you're scared to do. So many of us die without remembering all the little moments. Take your life and make it the best story ever.

...very few (none)...
the dogs are well inoculated, they have all the paperwork, and get through without much fuss!
I know in Namibia, they went to a State-approved vet (or actual State vet...) to get the dogs certified for entry into South Africa...

Paradoxically, the country they are FROM, has near RABID (pun intended!) rules about 3 - 6 months quarantine, at great cost...
But Africa? Easy_peasy!
