whose bike is this?


A woman from the UK.
Met her and her hubby (he rides the 640 Adv)
And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

Hi Lucky. Nice report. Net n regstelling. Baron Herman von Wolff het Dowiseb Kasteel gebou en daar geboer met perde en skaap. Hy was getroud met n Amerikaanse vrou met baie geld. Hy is egter gedeporteer vanuit Suid-Wes Afrika en is terug Duitsland toe en sy vrou na USA. Hy is dood in die Eerste Wereld oorlog. Meeste van die meubels van die kasteel is in Windhoek in n museum. Wens ek was so goed met n rekenaar soos jy dan kan ek my trips ook opsit.

Browsed the ride reports and saw that I never posted my pics of our Nam Ban trip. So here goes. Better late than never. Sorry boys. Promise never to do it again ;)

First casualty of the day

The steeds for the day at the Trawal Wine Cellar.

Arriving at the border

Lekker braai

Friends getting oiled

LS taking one of his awesome pics

Namibia style outhouse somewhere

Just us and a beautiful emptiness

Green

Namibia, after a good rain season, beautiful beyond imaging

More beauty

The famous D707 ‚?? a calm moment

Our campsite at Duwisub Castle


The castle

The master photographer yet again in action

Kaboef impression a comic character‚?¶.name it

The steeds wait patiently

She never let my down in 30 000 km


While the others went straight to Soususvlei via the main road I rode this back road and bumped into this Gemsbok who kept me company for a few scare km. He kept running rond and bont across the road.

Luxery in the middle of nowhere ‚?? La mirage desert lodge and spa

Campsite at Soususvlei

Near Solitaire

Thought exactly the same thing.
Butch & Kaboef have both already bought and sold the next one after these ones.

Some very nice pics here Ama - glad you found them..

Stunning adventure ride and report which was absolutely captivating.

This is the first time that I have noticed in a ride report, that GPS coordinates have been included with the photo's. 

Someone like myself and other overseas visitors, who visit the site and who have no idea where half these places are can look them up on Mapsource.

Well Done



There's always three sides to a story and only one of them is the absolute truth !

That first pic of LS doing what he is good at: Shouldn't the kidney belt be the other way around? Or is that to keep the desired figure? ;D ;D

Thanks. But I just used my old Pentax Optio camara like a mik and druk. In true its nearly impossible to take bad pics in Namibia.
