GSA - GS Adventure (the factory-pimped version of the standard GS)

Then there is the one and only GSV (Groot Swart Vark)  ;D ;D ;D

Very good!






It's when he leaves the sand where the problem begins. :twisted:

Did fabulously in the river bed. :cool: Then the exit onto hard ground.

Check him waiving his finger at GSV!

Thats what happens when a spinning wheel suddenly finds traction!
Welshie has no problem in riding sand, well he has the same problems the rest of us do but he does it well.

Looks like they recovered the bikes before dropping some more of the building on them. Not that it made any real difference..

Rockster - relatively unscathed


1150GS - Write off me finks


Lifting the GSA


Erm, what can I say?






Looks like the crash bars worked.


The Vespa and VFR didn't make it either..

Give the bike a wash, push that back wheel straight,. put the seat back on, and there you go..................just like most bikes in Africa.........................
