Hey Idiot!! Daai is n 2008 KTM ................ Fark!!

One would think after spending 2 weeks with me in NAM he would know which bike he had to pick up !!

Dit was miskien 'n 2008 voor die trip, maar na ons trip is dit nou 'n 2007 model!!!!!

Before the day ends, just after crossing a stream we are all reminded that your smile can be wiped of your face very quickly - and turned into rude laughter! Gummi wanted to turn around to take a picture and with the 990 being a bit af a fat ass, the bike simply fell over. I cracked myself! He didn't find this very funny and certainly didn't like the look of his 990 lying on its side! But this wouldn't be the last time the beast would lie on its side...

I eventually helped him and we got the beast back on its wheels.


We got to Sesriem without any further incidents, set up camp, took a dip in the pool and had a leke braai.

Damn !!!!  How I wish I was there ............. you know exactly how I feel.   :drif:    Enjoy the Tafel's and ride safely.   ;D
I will be following your trip closely.
An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a "drifter" I was born to "ride" alone
An' I've made up my mind

That route looks like it includes van Zyl's pass. There's a shortage of fuel in some of those remote areas. Going to be interesting to see how you guys managed that. Packed the fridge with beers and ice - popcorn in the micro .....

I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.
