Depending on what the Boss permits, I would like to be on a 950Adv but I suspect there will be a good chance I will be on the good old 450EXC again....

I can see someone on maybe a 400 but not much smaller, we will be averaging 80km/h on this trip but we will have 120km/h sections, combined with the fact that you will have your luggage on the bike (we DO NOT WANT a chase vehicle) you might want to go on a bit bigger bike.

I am still working on this, the last trip was a cheaper version as we did some camping too. At the end of the day I think it was a $8000/bike deal.
This one I suspect would be around $10k all in,
....15 months, start saving.....

I really enjoyed your 2006 ride report. I personally would have liked to read the rest of the story. I know how much time and effort is required to post up a great rip report. Thanks for what you were able to post.

This trip sounds great. I have been reading the Wilber Smith books that are all based on events/stories in and around South Africa. I wish that I could participate.

....as suspected we got drinking and never finished the ride report....we are howeverplanning to get it done soon......:dr:

You might also find it interesting to know that we will have a DVD of the trip by this weekend. I will send one to all who was on the trip if they want one, but if any one else wants one we need to figure out a way of getting them to you.

Any one know where we can upload larger files to?

Jay, better start saving. This one is going to be EPIC!

This is what happens if you're on a 950 and nobody else is...

Nice, I see you got a windshield - very cool. Would love to take it for a spin.
