FLANMAXIMONDO (Danielle). Firstly comgratulations on your choice of motorcycles. I have 2 1998/1999 models which combined have well over 100 000 kms of off-road touring in Central, Southern and East Africa. It is hard to think of anything lacking with these bikes.
As previously suggested by Welshman, the Wilddog Group in South Africa has members who would be interested in hearing your tales. (I am JIMBO on that forum). I have previously hosted pre-ride, and post-ride discussion groups at my house in Fourways, Johannesburg. I am confident I could organize such a group, unless you had something on a grander scale in mind.
On another note, I have a fully equiped DR Suzuki friendly workshop, and good relations with a local Suzuki Dearler, you would be welcome to make use of when in Johannesburg.
Keep in touch re your progress.
