Cyclonaut from the far up north...
« on: February 26, 2006, 06:11:15 pm »
Grizz told me about this place, and co-incidentially me got plans for trans-africa spinning around my head after my expedition to Islamic Rep. of Iran last year. So might get myself into some useful planning and Africa info-hunting stuff here time-to-time... Most of the time i'll try to keep my hands off from the bloody internet that tends to shorten the considerably more fantastic time on wheels - spring's coming!

I see quite many guys here who i know, mostly from UKGSer site. :thumbleft:

I'm from Estonia and ridin' GS

Oh yes, altough the country seems to be too up in the north, then despite having freezing winters -30C, we're having very hot summers with +30C as well with ideal conditions for big trailies and enduros - crap tarmac, lot of dirt and almost half of the roads are gravel, not much vehicles on them and virtually no police with speed cameras there :thumbleft: .


Can't wait to see how's the stuff in East-Africa and SA, i'll better start checking those ride reports here :arrow:.

Cheers, tsiklonaut :happy6:

Hallo MARGUS !!!!

Good to see you here........ :D


GUYS, FOR THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW MARGUS, HE IS ALSO AN INSPIRATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER.
He will photograph almost anything, including girls, now I know most of you do not like girls......... But here is a pic he posted a long time ago on www.ukgser.com which still inspires me to see details.

See if you can see the photographer in the pic.

Yep, there was a lot written etc... on the UKGSER board.

We had a quick whip around of the cap, and collected enough that Margus could get started....... he now has a beautiful new bike, look around in that part of the forums.
