Well, Sagot and I made it home today after taking an additional week holidaying in South Africa after the riding part of the trip finished before Christmas. I expect everyone else made it home as well too- no news is good news, right?

Bikes are hopefully en route- we left them in bonded lockup in Walvis Bay on Dec 23rd as all the warehouse people were scrambling to leave for the holidays.

The trip was very scenic, there are amazing pics and I hope to write up a bit of an account of what we did and post. A picture being worth a 1000 words, there may be more pics than text, hope thats alright!

Glad to see you're both back. I trust the others fared well also?

How about coming out to the GVMC one Tuesday night and putting on a presentation of your trip?

I'll go over to fishland now & see if you've done a ride log like the stellar one you two wrote for your Latin America trek.

Yikes!

Didn't Hooligan assure us all that such a catastrophe could never befall an orange bike?

Seriously, sorry to read of the troubles; I trust you made the best of it and still had a great time?

(Why do you two post more on that stoopid site than at this fabulous forum?)

The trip was very scenic, the animals amazing. As for the riding, there was some good, some bad, and a bit of ugly stuff, as well as some amazing stuff too. Sagot had a major equipment failure very early in the trip and ended up having to rent a small 4x4 to follow the group, riding other peoples bikes from time to time- it was a tragedy that the KTM went out of commission but things still rolled along in spite of that. There wasn't much time to write, never mind post regular updates like we have for past tripsandmost of the locations were far too remote to do anything meaningful over the internet anyways- my family got 1 email to know we'd arrived and that was it- it took 25 minutes to send a quick email to them and that was in a city where I'd thought there'd be good internet connections.

I'll post ride report here, with pics, stay tuned. Unfortunately I do have to get back to work today- might be a problem as I passed out at 2pm yesterday with jetlag and just found out I have to head to Ont tomorrow....:cf2:

Great to hear that you made it back safely.
