No, seriously!
There are some awesome pics in this tread, I wouldn't post any of my attempts here, I will just sit quietly and enjoy  :thumleft:

haha...that would take some doing! I like the idea...

The guys who ride Namibia tend to be lonewolves or in very small packs  :)

It would be interesting to form a loose route & see who you can meet up with in the evenings associated with the ride? Don't know if i'd want to ride in a "big" group...big being relative of course.
I want the sense of solitude and open spaces that i 'own' for the moment to.

Most guys can only do it in December anyway...

Without 'jumping the gun'  :biggrin: the idea will rather be to gather on the Namibian side of the border than actually traversing the country.
There's some awesome riding in the immediate area - Gamchab canyon, Fish River Canyon, River road to ROsh Pinah and even the Richtersveld with a crossing at Sendelings drift.

Passport, ZA sticker, Insurance clearance letter, vehicle finance clearance letter (if the bank still owns your bike)

What paperwork does one need? can I cross the border with a learner's licence, or do I have to go and play nice with the traffic cops one day? riding two-up is not going to be an option for a while, it seems.
