Great man, thanks for sharing.  Having been part of that Bible carrying girl crowd with the Landcruiser in tow, the proper way real men do things is appealing.  Looking forward to seeing the part that follows, would still like to go there one day too.   Salute! 8)

Julle manne is hardcore.  :thumleft:

The more I think about it, the more I reckon that for a real self-sustained, bundu-bashing adventure ride a 650-ish single is the right choice.

Go bigger and a back-up vehicle is your only option.

What I like about you lot is that you're a bunch of Phillistines. Weird, older bikes and a healthy serving of "heeeeehah!" thrown in for good measure.

I salute you.  :thumleft:

Having been part of that Bible carrying..

SGB...I was going to mail you the RR link the minute I posted the last installment..

Having read your RR just before I left, the "Tour of the Battlefields --> Do you have bibles --> we need to meet the Administrator" line of talk by the commander made me realise the good will that you and your team garnered , something that I was acutely aware of during our journey as well, being the first group of bikers in many places.

I hope that subsequent groups will realise common respect to the locals will pave the way to many successfull trips by fellow bikers, hopefully we will all build on the foundation you guys have laid.

The more I think about it, the more I reckon that for a real self-sustained, bundu-bashing adventure ride a 650-ish single is the right choice.

Spot on, and of the three, one stood out, but I will get to it.

To all the others sharing our journey, pls be patient, the last two installments to follow soon, with some surprises, little setbacks ...and ultimate ....  :thumleft:

I try read most reports on this forum but only once or twice a year does something remarkable come up.
It is not only the places that are explored but surely the teller of the stories and the man behind the camera. You do not need to be the greatest photographer to capture the real adventure. It is knowing when to stop and what subjects provide the most insight conveying the textures and lay of the land and it's people and how you fitted into all of this with your awkward noisy machines loaded full of funny, unnatural, and if you look carefully at it, impractical devices.
I read the "other" recent Angola report and although informative and interesting it lacked that sence of "I wanna be there.... NOW" (sorry SGB, maybe it was the addition of a back up car that killed the sense of adventure.)

Great work Berzerker and team. Being three on a trip like this is the lucky number.

Major great RR. cant wait for the coming part, hope you took a lot of pics. Was around Quito in '87, would like to see what it look like now.  All those T54's and BMP's next to the road, what a waste. Bring back memories.

It is really sad what was done to Angola in the past, superpowers using it as a place to make a point, regardless of the consequences to the locals.

Major respect to you guys, this is what it's about. Love the canyon pics, hope you add one to the photo competition, any one would get my vote.

oom Danie en Beserker en nommer3 baie goed.

Julle bewys dat dit gedoen kan word, MAAR as iemand hierdie report lees moet hulle tog besef julle KAN scooter ry en laat baie dele makliker lyk as wat dit rerig is.

Danie nou kan jy maar voortgaan en jou opinie lig jy het die credit en die T-shirt :imaposer:

Weereens very, very nice peter!!!

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
