I applaud them!

Fuck convention, all hail romanticism and cool pictures and beautiful woman to boot!

Love it.

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

The pessimist in me wants to comment on all the things they did wrong...
But in reality they actually did something and I have done f-ol similar so I applaud them.

Damn right K!...I trawled all the responses to see who picked up that some dude managed to hook up with two very adventurous babes on a trip in the middle of nowhere. The evenings could have been fun...#justsaying

Lekker, but I sure as hell and not that brave to ride with horns tied to my bike.

read as far as this , and then stopped ,

The last couple of kilometres to Luderitz are ridden quickly and this ancient German colonial city doesn't seem to welcome us. There isnít really anything to see. We find a nice coffee place and we can just imagine how this place was during Apartheid.

this just pisses me off why bring this into what was a good story be it a bit dramatized.

Way more sense of adventure than 90% of the hardcore adventure riders that seldom if ever throw themselves into the deep end like this. That D707 is no mean feat on a massive bike , kak tires and short legs. Looks like they embraced the experience, even the tough bits

Salute to the girls. Great report and an epic adventure in a faraway land.

Sadly some silly inviromental poophols had to take there skulls and shit away. Over zealous bureaucratic foot shooting that Africa is famous for.

Would have been impossible to take that home with them. Euro laws are very strict about skins and bones into their countries especially out of Africa for fear of Foot and Mouth decease. :(

I did not even read the story... ok they had a lekker time, took some cool looking pics... but to be disparaging of such an historic town was inappropriate to say the leas! Bringing in apartheid makes them spoilt virtue signaling snobs. :sip:

Well apartheid did happen and was part of history and yes the towns looked very different during that time, I doubt they were around to remember it.
