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.
Thanks a lot Jim, I havent had the chance to contact wild dogs yet - that's next on the agenda (yes even overlanders have a work schedule!) Im going to be in J'burg from the 24th of November for a couple of months as I have visitors from then onwards and over the christmas period. So, how ever big or small the group is - it doesnt matter!
As for the workshop - thats fantastic! I have a few modifications I want to do before I start heading north once again! And after the last 1000km dirt track i just took in Tanzania, my bike is shaken to pieces and now needs some tender loving care once again!
Thanks again fallow DR350 rider! (I use to have another 94 model but I had to sell it before leaving on this trip)
