Noneking, you seem to have run out of fuel a few times. Were you running the standard fuel tank?

Yes I was

8 weeks before the trip, I ordered an IMS tank through a company in Cape Town. I was informed that delivery would take 6-8 weeks as it was a special order and would have to be imported. I paid a 50% deposit and placed my order for a 4.1 gal tank. 5 weeks later, I was informed that something had gone wrong import and they would not be able to honour my order in time. I cancelled the order and my deposit was refunded.

At this point I was very worried, but Hardy assured me that I would never have to wait long for petrol. On this day things got complicated because of Ri's accident and Dwerg's breakdown and therefore a longer than ideal wait next to the track

The dentist doing the dirty - Show off

Nou wanneer kry ek 'n pet en check you -check you back Oakleys?? 8)

Ek sal die pet aanstuur - maar die brille is nodig vir my slegte kykers. Dis hoekom ek nie met goggles kan ry nie - nog nie goggles met sterk genoeg lense gekry nie.

It was a magnificent setting and my favourite camp on the trip.

My Liewe Ding.....

I cannot wait to get back up there - I need a smaller, lighter bike - like the G450X or something - and I must really make a plan to book for next year......
What are we booking exactly?🤨

@Hardy de Kock , Gary Webber, Steff Pretorius, Marc McIntyre and Oom Barry




a Monkey apple (that is what we call it) struck me against my ear as I went through some low hanging branches. For a moment I thought some disgruntled Himba took a punch at me. That's what you get for not wearing a helmet. My ear kept bleeding until we made it to camp.
