Here is Jan in south America  with his trusty S10 that went around the world. The bike is still in use and on display at Duneworx

n Regte avonturier lyk Jan na en hy lyk ouerig toe hy die trip gedoen het. Ek hou van oumense wat guts het om sulke goed te doen. :thumleft:
Wie neem die shop oor MFN of is daar seuns wat dit bedryf?

Hi ChrisL
Jan was nie so oud nie, begin sestigs. Sy vrou en neef ( Mario)  het ook aandele in die winkel en sal daarmee aangaan. Hulle is en was nog altyd die beste Yamaha plek in Namibia. Ek is seker elke biker wat deur Swakop gekom het het al 'n draai daar gemaak.
Die trip was so 4 jaar  gelede voltooi. Hy het nog voor laas week op die S10 forum gespog oor hoeveel duisende km die trip was (ek dink in die 90 000km) en dat hy net 'n agterwiel bearing moes vervang in suid Amerika, verder net dienste.
Dis so jammer.
Life is great LIVE IT!!

Jan was a true Adventure rider, the routes and distances he traveled eclipsed anything any of us have ever done. Jan always had time to chat to us when we were in Swakop and Duneworx helped out with service and spares on any model bike that were riding on tour with us

Ai dis slegte nuus - toe ek in Swakop gewoon het, het ek gereel by hulle aangeklop.  Ek glo Mario sal verder bou op DuneWorx se sukses - hy is al baie jare daar saam met Jan.
