Nice one!

Can you please just put a star or something over that crack - I'm going blind.

Say NO to crack!  ;D

Cracking report 'thou!!!
1200GSA. It's like the girl you marry, reliable, maybe a bit overweight but you know she will always look after you even though she may not be the most exciting ride.

HP2. Itís like the pole dancer you have thoughts of running away with, you know at some point it will end in tears but you just have to come back for more, at times it makes no sense but when you get down and dirty who cares about sense."

Remember to dig this photo out then ...

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

I am SO glad people are staring at your crack, LS, rather than the semi-dead guy on the ground.

Anyway, I won't even try to improve on the ride reports of my fellow adventurers, so I'll just post some of my pics this weekend. LS, Kaboef - you can maar write stories, hoor.
Live and let live.

As I said, there‚??s no way that I can improve on the stories already told. Not only that, but most of my pics look like the ones taken by LS and Kaboef ‚?? minus the quality. Here are a few pics to add to the collection.


I just love that Ceres-Karoo road. We couldn‚??t resist riding through the few remaining puddles.


Oh, that dreaded first night in Upington. Unfortunately, this mime could talk ‚?? a lot ;-)


Kaboef, sorry, but you asked for it 8-}


No comment.


This is the start of a 60km stretch from hell. OK, it wasn‚??t that bad, just potholes, ruts, thick sand and of course the stretch of road where I saw my arse for the second time.


At the campsite near Ganzi, we enjoyed a good meal, good wine, all right company and played snap until we got the hint that they wanted to close the bar.


Kaboef showing us how a real man makes a fire.


And the obligatory bike-in-the-mirror shot, taken on the road from Ganzi to Maun.


We just had to have one.


And for the record ‚?? LS rode a katoohoom. LS rode a katoohoom.


Still at Audit Camp ‚?? I‚??m sure this pool is the centre of attraction in summer.


The bustling metropolis of Maun.

By now, I‚??m sure you‚??ve seen enough pics of the roads, the flatness, the sand, donkeys, horses, bikers, so I‚??ll end with this picture, but I‚??m not telling you where it was taken.



Another trip that I will NEVER forget.

Live and let live.

Very cool pics added - thanks !

That one where the Katoom is lying on its side says a lot from the tell-tale line that runs to the scene of the accident ...


LS with his pimpsuit on a Katoom ? Classic !

They show porn there! Now you tell me.

Unfortunately, I had to get home in a hurry, otherwise we would definitely have taken that detour. Next time.
