    Thank you for sharing. Several of my high school students have parents gone for months at a time on oil gigs in Angola. They are rather more sheltered than you blokes! Monte Negro description/pics were great.

    Ohhh man!:eek1
    Thanks for showing Africa/Angola from an point of view that the big press insists not to show!
    Top report, none because the scenarios but the dificult and high life risk!
    And before someone says, FP material!

    More, please!

    Abraços,

    Just spent 30 minutes scaning your Smugmug gallery, and haven't even scratched the surface. There are so many pics that would be front page pics. Great ride report, but the pics are better then the story. I have to give this ride a 10+ on a real adventure. Thanks for sharing.

    HAHAHAHA good one! They are really curious about us, the same as us with them. Touching, talking, sharing food and beer they love it, well we too. No hell we would never leave those good people with our biker trash genes, how will the poor basterd survive? :D

    More serious, we are all married, not that it matters for some (just kidding) and Aids in Africa is a reality not a rumour, so it's best to rather, keep it indoors or help yourself if you feel the need:lol3

    We did a loop, MJ will post you pic of the route we did, we ended in Ruacana again where we started
