Hello South Africa.....

I am just checking in as I am about to embark on a journey around the world. Since my plan at this point to to ride to the tip of South America and then ship to South Africa and head north. Would not be arriving to South Africa until early next year.

Still considering what Motorbike to ride. Have a 1150GSA that is great in NA but not sure how I would like it in Africa? The dilemma about the big bike vs the small bike.

Any words of wisdom??

Thanks Mark.

My journey

Hi David.

With some common sense it can be done safely solo. The best map foryour GPS would be Tracks4Africa. For riding partners looky here:

He isn't on Facebook. And it is a matter of some legal urgency.
