She might, by spreading the virus, let it get in the way of others' adventures.

She might have watched the girl from "on her bike" riding South Africa and decided to follow suite?

Perhaps she can move here permanently then?

Before I bought my KLR I had forgotten where my Z750 twin had taken me on dirt... and it was not an "Adventure" style bike. Just saying... :sip:

Same here, and on 3 successive GT750's. Tyres in those day were much better suited to D'S riding, those nylon Cheng-Shins would cut the Tankwa stones.

Yes, we have a lockdown in the Netherlands. All non-essential  shops are closed and we are advised not to go on holiday abroad. Also we have to stay at home between 21:00 h and 04:30 h.
But it is possible to fly to another country if they will let you in. (most of the countries I know,  you need to show a negative covid test to get in).

I can't blame Noraly to go to South Africa. I have been there twice and loved it.
I'm looking forward to see her video's again.

Actually, she inspired me and my son to make our own YouTube channel about motorcycle riding.  It is in Dutch with English subtitles. ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7otpMkkVKqR3SyQiVy6ehw )

Come and ride some dirt roads, plenty of them. The sun also shines most of the time just watch out for the opportunistic dieven

Quite possibly, but Noraly's videos are far better edited and entertaining to watch compared to Kinga (Being forced to watch her feet taping each other after falling on her bed, at whatever place she stays at in every video is just annoying)

And even if she had a set route all planned out she would not tell - otherwise she would be escorted by a whole bunch of riders every km of the way :3some:
I bet some of you are trying to find out where she will be tomorrow as we speak, and the roads, tracks, trails will look like Piccadilly Circus in the coming weeks as everyone covers as much ground as possible, hoping for a chance encounter and the opportunity to show her the best places to ride. :imaposer:

And I dont blame you :lol8:
