Wonder as ek vir die kinders se dat universiteit gekanselleer is, dan vat ek hulle maar saam op so 'n trippie.

Miskien leer hulle meer..... :P

wat is fout met die weeshuis?  :lol8:

 :peepwall:

Jy't hulle heel duidelik lanklaas gesien, groter kans dat hulle my in 'n outehuis gooi...... :biggrin:

okay bliksem! Wel ek stem saam hulle sal meer leer om saam te travel.  :biggrin:

Boys, girls and the rest, here's the thing. Sunday we are leaving for the USA. Plan is to buy 2 DR650's in Texas and then travel the US till Oct when we will be heading down to Mexico and South America. Eventually if all goes well back up again and up to Canada and Alaska. Might take 3 or so years, that is if bikes, limbs, money and health last that long.  :lol8:  :ricky:

From our experience WiFi and internet is but a miss and hit affair, more mis than affair.  :lamer:

This was part of the reason I got badly behind on updates, okay slapgatgeit ook maar. Most part is the utter frustration with uploading pictures and forum hosting software and such shit, and with travel it's all about pictures. Which you know eats data like nothing else. Not knowing what to expect, I have to limit the places where to share and post. I think for now will add updates and stories on our blog www.pikipiki.co.za. You can also subscribe here and receive the updates we post on the blog. The blog post also include reviews and products stuff.
Just for kak praat and a quick know where we are Facebook as Michnus but really it's just for kak praat nothing much more than that. Forums on Advrider and on RoamAfrica purely because the software is much easier to use for post. If all goes to plan maybe I can do some updates here but do not want to promise and then won't be in a position to do so.

Cheers for eers  :thumleft:

What happened to your Dakars?

We stored them in Germany. It is stupidly expensive to ship bikes around the world, and we are not nearly finished with Eu. We will go back to the Eu to go to Turkey and East after the USA, Canada and South America. Also I need simpler bikes, running GS's get bliksems expensive. And they are heavy, we love the backroads and hauling a 230kg around is no fun.

Got our new, well new 2nd hand bikes this week, and got them registered on our names. We are taking over the USA...mu ha ha ha.  >:D :lol8:

Queen: “Barcelona – It was the first time that we met” Passers by did not appreciate  my performance of Queens famous song.
After our memorable trip through Portugal, we were left with little time for Spain.  We mostly toured along the coastal areas.  Espana being such an unhurried relaxed and vibrant country, taught us lots of interesting bits.

But before we tell you about the interesting things you might not know about Spain, this is why we will return for sure!
