Is that stickers for the "dakar" and the "tuareg" logos or is that painted ?

Hey Aurel, did you make a wrong turn going back home from work or was that the shortcut?

That's a shortcut! When you have karoo's... with a scorpion it's a bit harder

Aurel,

And every now and then you go back to town?

Reminds me when I lived in Dakar and went riding on the beach almost everyday, even rode my Africa Twin into the ocean.
Well, it was another time, anoher life

Well Zeeowh I hit the water crossing at about 60 and my feet were rippied off the pegs. By the time I managed to get them back on I didn't think I would make the corner safely. So I thought I would brake hard and go straight, over a small drop off then it was flat and clear.....So I thought. I hit the rocks at a mere 15km/h and did a superman impression. , my shoulder that I landed on isn't laughing though.


Who left these behind???

On the weekend I get the rest of the photos and I'll do a full report.
I hit the one infront of the bloke in the blue, it's about half the size of the front wheel.
