I'm moving this to the 'In progress' ride report area - a prime candidate for that board.

I am really looking forward to the rest of this and good luck on your epic adventure!

Take care and be safe, but above all take time to take every minute of it in!

This will be the memories that will be your company when you are 85 and in a old age home somewhere that will, while sitting on your own make the other people ask: 'What is Jolandie smiling about ?'

;D ;D ;D ;D
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

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

Got back home safely from Jolandie's ride along. Got a bit wet, but nothing like a hot bath and dry clothes to get comfortable again.
My wife took a few hundred pics, but I'll only post a few.
First one arriving at L'Agulhas.
Second pic, wet, but smiling.
Third one, with the FIM flag as explained in her first post of this ride report.

Always smiling. I can only imagine when we see you again in a years time that smile will be much bigger.

Take care and enjoy every moment.  

When you're back in the Eastern Cape, stop over in East London - you have a place to sleep  :deal:.
