What your impression on the different maps?

Hi Walter!
Here in Africa I use the 80 Oktan mode, because the fuel is not the best.
I didnít have much time in Europe to ride the bike before I went to Africa.
But its real difference between Sport, Street and Rain.

You relay feel it. And Sport is amazing.

After 2 days on the ship, we are now in Mosambique.
The People of Mosambique call the province Niassa, the end of the world.
And it really looks like that. The rain destroyed the rough roads.

The way from Liching to Marrupa is tarmac, but the weather isnít that nice. We have to go fast to reach the town without going wet.
In Marrupa we find e small Pension, with no running water.
But thanks to Movitel, the internet is working.
Itís a crazy world here in the north of Mozambique.



There are not too many tarmac roads up in the north.
The most of the time Iím riding on gravel roads, which is even more fun.



The track from Cuamba to Nampula is in horrible conditions.
Now I understand, why no public busses drive on this road.
Everyone how is going this way is using the railway, or a KTM 1190 Adventure R.

You'll find even small offroad tracks on them.
