As always, brilliant RR Noneking! This is real hardcore riding as the title suggests. I really respect the gents with the big Ktm`s going through the rivers and very steep inclines. Seems you (and the bike) really have to commit to these challenging obstacles. And beautiful pictures. Are those taken with an Iphone? And how on earth did you get past Mrs Noneking for yet another adventure ride? Please share the wisdom with us...lol!  But well done gents and the sense of achievement! Regards.
Keep a cool head - life is precious!

@Just Blip It! had 1 or two more surprises up his sleave and we were made to work for our dinner..... :pot:

It was already dark when we arrived at Maguga Lodge. We had a few beers and then went to our rooms to take off our wet boots and clean up. Great dinner with lots of laughs and stories.

Although this was our last day and basically a ride home, Mark had no intention of letting us off easy on the way to the border  >:D >:D

Great RR Canzius. I have been riding Swaziland for 22 years now and it always blows my mind with its natural beauty, awesome riding and friendly people every time i ride there. Close to my heart! Love sharing it with riders like yourself that appreciate how special this place is. Thanks for putting this into writing and pictures, I am enjoying it thoroughly. :thumleft: :sip:

Well done to You all... looks like a mouthwatering journey in Swazi ...
I believe that Just Blip It (Mark Taylor) is the "Superman" of Swazi Trips  :thumleft:
A Trip with him in the lead will make you find your Heart in different places ... i mean finding it in your pants next to your balls and the next moment in your chest just about jumping out of it and then you can't swallow because it is high up in your neck.  :imaposer:
A good 30 Year's of biking experience on my back now but the trip with Mark leading into the big unknown in Swazi was truly the most
emotional of all journeys on dirt for me.
I follow all your Rides in here and i am a bit surprised that you have been so challenged. By all means your trips in the area (Mpumalanga) are not
without sweat & blood at times. Your pictures are fantastic and the reports give me goose bumps at times.

I geared up to a F800GS in February and want to get a bit more friendly with her on dirt before i need to join you one day soon to make a trip into the
Lowveld area.
Thanks for the RR ... always a pleasure to join in sitting in my comfy chair at home in Marloth Park  :laughing4:

Thank you Shangali! 95 % of the ride was fine, but there were a few obstacles that I would've thought unrideable........ until we went up or down or over them  :ricky:
I suffer from severe acrophobia and find it very scary to ride down steep descents or near edges dropping off into the unknown.
