Mpumalanga and Swazi Aug 2018 (video and lot's of photo's)
« on: September 07, 2018, 11:41:16 pm »
It was a 6 day trip in Badplaas, Hazyview and Swaziland.
We trailer-ed the bikes to "Cradle-of-life" guest farm just outside Badplaas.
We were 5x Africa Twins, a 1x 701 and later in the trip 2x 990's and a 690 joined us.
The Honda dct's made riding in the technical sections much much easier. I am currently on a manual but will hopefully change to a dct by year's end.   
Here is the video:

Exactly,  Twister did not want to spoil the group's fun and decided to stick with the group until the last day with 2x broken bones in his foot. :thumleft: :thumleft:

Very cool vids and pics dudes!  :thumleft:
Just reminds me that I need to get out of here more myself on some longer trips. The terrain you were riding would have been a breeze (mostly) on my XR400R. Cool to see that the big
bikes handle it too. To have the handling of an XR400R with the power and cruising abilities of a CRF1000L! would be fantastic - I'm still looking for my unicorn...

Too lekker Pieter! Great pics and vids.
I'm surprised you haven't gone the 500 option with the kinds of crazy rides you guys do on those behemoths!
