F_ing goeie trip rapport, mooi fotos en kan nie glo dat NAM so groen is nie.  Hoop om eendag weer daar deur te kan ry en by van die plekke te draai waar julle by was. Dankie  :thumleft:

@ Jacobsroodt

Hulle noem die ding 'n "fuel cell".  Jy kan dit kry by Bikegear.  Hier is so paar vendors op die forum wat sal kan help, soos ChrisL.  Die sak vat 7liter petrol en is opvoubaar.  Ek het net so oor die R600 betaal (as ek reg kan onthou).  Dis een van die beste beleggings wat ek gemaak het, die ding werk werklik goed.  Dit seel 100% en pak maklik weg.  Ek dink om nog een te koop om water te vervoer.

Hoop ek kon help.  Vra maar as jy nog hulp nodig het.
Dankie vir die info. Ons beplan 'n trip vanaf Kaapstad tot Vic Falls en terug verby die Okavango Delta en moet al die voorbereidings tref wat ons kan. Enige tips sal waardeer word!

Uitstekende RR Vis Arend. Ons het ook 'n trip in daai wÍreld gedoen 15 Junie tot 15 Julie 2011 en dit was aawsome. Het ook heelwat van dieselfde roetes gery. Al daai sandmonsters is nog steeds daar en kan dinge baie interesant maak. High 5 en meneer status vir jou om dit met so swaar gelaaide groot bike te bemeester. Het ook baie siele teegekom wat gesÍ het "EENDAG" maar dis n' fout, jy doen jouself net in want eendag kom omtrent nooit, en waneer jou verval datum aanbreek en jy het nie so trip op jou kerfstok nie dan gaan jy die hiernamaals heelwat armer binne.
Danksy Visarend lyk die S10 nou ook na 'n baie aantreklike opsie.

Thx guys.

@Winston, waars jou RR?  Deel bietjie met ons.  :thumleft:

Daai sand het my baie moeilikheid gegee, maar dit was deel van die pret.  Ja, van uitstel kom afstel, dis hoekom ons 'n besluit geneem het en daarby gehou het en nooit weer sal terugkyk nie.  Inteendeel, ons beplan reeds 'n volgende trip.

Ek sal die RR opsit sodra dit uitgesort is, werklas interference en vertraag dinge ietwat.

Hi Vis Arend (& Missis)
What an aftenoon I've just had reading your RR al in one siting(lekker being  pensioner and having th spare time). My son and I are planning a trip of similar nature but with his 4x4 cage so that the inlaws can go with. Your report is making me consider that we rather take our GS's and do it your way.

I would like to suggest that you take this RR and turn it into a Coffee Table book and who knows the profit could pay for the next adventure.

Thanks once again

Jislaaik,ek verstaan nie hoe ek die RR heeltyd mis gekyk het nie.
Met so lyf op jou Avatar sou ek ook die RR gemis het.  :biggrin:

Do it with the GS, it will be fun (your lucky pensioner)
ps.  Do you know how to turn this RR into a Coffee Table book?  Would like to give it a try.

Thx once again to all for the nice comments.  It makes the trip some much more special.  :thumleft:

Dankie, ek is reeds besig om nog kiekies wat nie in die oorspronklike RR is nie te sorteer, so as herdenking van die RR.
