Taking a bike across ze border
« on: November 18, 2011, 09:01:08 am »
Taking my bike (offroad) up to Zambia on a trailer for some riding, it doesn't have papers or anything though?

Will I be able to get through?

Tx

Off the top of my head I reckon they'd stop you.  If the bike doesn't have papers it cannot be tracked through borders.

effectively you get a carne at the border, therefore you need to take papers.

Sars need it!

We used to have to get special permission for the guys taking their bikes to Botswana for the Desert Race and to Swazi for the Swazi 400. How an individual would get this right I don't know but there must be a way.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee
