Gomoto Explore 125's all the way to Vic Falls!
« on: January 10, 2012, 10:19:44 am »
Hi Guys!

We completed our trip from SA to Vic Falls on our Chinese 125's! Thanks to all for the tips and info that made the trip awesome. We are posting the full story on Facebook. Have a look at our page "Superheroes for Dummies" for the day by day tour as we update.

We really are novices so some of the tips we post will seem silly to the old dogs, but it taught us some lessons.

Safe riding for 2012!

Cheers,
Vleishaas

Dankie Lem!

Die twee fietse het alle verwagtinge oortref. Al probleme was twee pap wiele. Een battery was foutief, maar met die kickstart wat werk het dit nie eers gepla nie. Die Gomoto's is definitief nie bedoel vir hierdie trips nie, maar het uitstekend gevaar as jy nie omgee om te cruise teen 80km/h nie!

Net 'n goeie was en 'n check-up dat al die nuts nog vas is na die grondpad, is al wat nodig was na die trip. Hulle loop nog soos stroop.

yes! ek het julle facebook blad gaan kyk. dis n awesome trippie wat julle aangepak het. maar ek het al minder bagasie op Ewan en Charlie se LWR bikes gesien!!! bliksem, Transkeibus se Moses. as jy se hy cruise 80 kph soos daai, sal hy seker oor 100 loop sonder alles?
