Looking forward to the rest

Yes, looking forward the rest and it would be best for all concerned if you stopped shagging those sheep Justin.
If you don't have a limp like a township dog - you're not doing it right. Go back & try again.

Rode it, awesome bike for this type of trip where the "really" technical terrain ability of the bike is not a huge requirement.
It is well balanced, has oodles of power, good suspension (and fortunately I only needed to pick it up once)

With the 30 liter safari tank, the comfortable seat and ergonomics sorted (small fairing etc.), I think it will be my bike of choice for Namibia type of trips where the distances are vast.

Hedley might have sukkeled with the sand after an extended absence from off road riding, however is not stupid...he pried me of the bike just as I started thinking along the lines of  "this is a straight road, no ways is he going to catch me if I make my getaway NOW!"

Ha ha ha.. Dave.. You legend buddy..... You're welcome to ride it anytime.. It looks like a baby when in your hands.. And the pick up you refer to, tell them, it basically fell over.. That was not a fall.. Lol!!!!
Just a little heavy for me right now. Need to get my head around that, then i will be fine....
