On Friday I met up with a French rider , who flew his brand new XT660Z Tenere into Cape Town.He plans to ride back up the East Coast through Africa to Englnd.

I had the privilige of sitting on his bike (1000km on the clock)

He had the exhaust system changed and various other mods done in Germany at Off The Road.com
