The Launch is being held down in the Southern Cape and based i a town called George. I think the ride that Shawn is talking about is going to be heading to the Baviaan's Kloof. I dont know for a fact, but that is my guess. Will give the guys a taste of some of the more barren landscpe behind the sea facing mountains and once in the kloof they are going experience a truly magnificient natural and remote landscape with lots of river crossings, steep drops off into the valley system and generally a great taste of Africa down in the Cape. Not truly Big 5 wild country, but sure nice enough. Thats my guess....

I don't want that mode, how do I order a bike without it?

There have been a couple riding around South Island as part of the "One World, One R1200GS" campaign. Very, very impressive!
