Thanks to the contributors for this no doubt extraordinary report, which is clearly way more than just a report of a ride through Namibia :thumleft: It is surely a trip which I aspire to undertake sometime - I just need to get a more suitable bike, for starters  ;)

Any one of those 2 bikes in your avatar is PUURRFECT!

Agree, nothing wrong with the bikes at all  :thumleft:....but with this rider in those conditions, I am not so sure  ;D I have seen how you so easily man handle your 950 on the trip and quite honestly, I am nowhere at that level of riding Rickus  :-[

Sheepman - If everyone were this honest about their skill level, tours like this would be even more fun.
Rickus would be the first person to recommend smaller bikes for the average rider.
Unfortunately, they have not yet manufactured a smaller bike that would be able to move around this properly dewormed individual, and he is everything but an average rider :thumleft:

@Sheepman its great that you are honest with yourself!!!.. this trip will turn into a nightmare if you have to struggle with a heavy bike that your not comfortable going through some of the most technical and sandy terrain you'll find on ANY adventure tour. The scenery and interesting bits will elude you if you have to constantly fight with your bike.
Speak to Hardy or any of the crew or riders that's done this trip before you decide on what bike to get for this trip or even rent one (very good option!!) Hardy will hook you up and assist in either option.

Took this picture of @Nicolas Rossouw and @Adriaan.theron at the start of the Schlucht. Go on a ride with them and any problem you might encounter will be solved in no time at all.

Some pictures of "roadside" repairs during the trip. Mostly the issues are quick to fix – given that there is a backup bakkie with tools, spares and expertise at your back. Many of these scenarios would mean the end of a solo trip.
