Quick nite out to Swakop
« on: November 06, 2008, 08:54:49 pm »
I decided during lunch to go to Swakop for a nite-out!  Super Tyres called earlier to tell me that my long awaited front Anakee has arrived!


At long last the 'right' front tyre!


Near Karibib after a rather late departure from Windhoek


Photoshoot near Spitskoppe turn-off


More posing . . .


And more still!


Racing the sun to the horizon!  There is a huge fog bank to the front!


But I had to stop once again.


For more posing!


Standing on the Uranium belt


A last pose before I faced the fog and the chill!  Windhoek was 36 degrees and now its 14 degrees!

Davy voor die reenseison begin kry vir jou n stel Heidenau tyres. Hulle is BAIE beter as die Anakees veral in modder. My vrou het n stel op haar 650. Hou regtig van hulle veral op grondpad. Ek wag self vir die 150 om te kom. Jy kan by my bestel of as jy Gauteng is by Adventurer.
