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."

A beyond wonderful ride report.

Stumbled accross it a couple of months ago.
That's what led me to this forum eventually.
Thanks MetalJ

This ride report was the final straw which made me and a couple of friends decide to set a date and do Kaokoland. Watch out for "IN DIE MIDDEL VAN FOKKOL IN SAGTE SAND" in a year's time.
98 Black AT & the wheel from a 04 KLR 650.
