Dear All,I am new with all of this. (offroad biking and the Wild Doig Forum). I can tell you that I have enjoyed every single lines and word description of your story. My Afrikaans is baie kak, but still got the picture.
Thank you for sharing all this great stories.

I also went on my first bike tour (more a week-end) in the lowveld 2 week-end ago. I enjoy every minute of it...
I brought my bike without really my wife's approval and wanted to use it mainly as a mode of transport...but friends of mine took me with in the BMW Pretoria ride one Sunday morning...than the bug hit me...
I went on the LDBA dual bike chalenge 2 weeks ago in the lowveld in Badplaas (nothing like your adventure in Namibia), but still I reallyloved it.

I realised that I might need futher equipment: like an off road helmet, a GPS, a camel back bottle, paniers, chush bars protectors, bluethooth communicator, etc... eventually upgrading to a 1200 GS adventures with many touratech extras...
ho ho, I almost forgot, I might need some camping equipment.

Does that ever stop ?
I might just start by trying to convince my wife to participate to the once a month BMW Pretoria riding...which is absolutly GREAT !!! I loved it as well...

The folks at Kunene River Lodge said it's been there for a while. It was probably someone that was over confident!
