nothing like the solitude of riding or being in those wide open spaces........this is about as hectic as it gets in the remote places

Mother mother mother . . . .  :drif: :drif: :drif: 

Because of you I have to plan a trip  . . . . .  :biggrin:

Beautiful photo's.  A must do for me.  Haven't there before.

Is it wise to do it with a pillion?
Life is hard - even harder if you are stupid.

hahhaaaahaa....sorry but thats the plan if you havent been yet,,...u wont be sorry

i like sharing my rides with my pillion....in my case my wife now....its nice to share ur experience........ anyway i ride two up mostly nowadays

depends on ur skill with a pillion if u a nervous rider it might be a problem  ... if u hit some thick sand sections ...but
they are few and far between....if u hit a section of sand u must both learn to stand....

most of my Namibian experience is good gravel on the main gravel roads....its when u get to the remote places...they tend to not scrape the roads regularly....fortunately then sand is no problem....we been doing it for years
