I don't think he had much choice where he was headed .
Sounded like a pretty hectic ride and used some of the Baja 1000 route.

Not my dad but my neighbour's (he's 87) father in the side-car. This was taken in Jan 1920 in Graaff-Reinet and the inscription at the back says they were on their way to hunt ostrich.

Unfortunately no idea as to the make of motorcycle
