I laughed and cried thru this whole thing! Best RR ever!
MJ you and the other 4 makes me proud to be an South African DS rider. There's nothing like planning a trip and actually doing it. Congrats on a fab report and I red it twice in so many days.
Thank you so much for posting this ride report!! Absolutely fabulous to read and see the pictures. Wow.
You guys are totally off the chart! I love it.
Keep it coming, we're all waiting for the next one.
Nag metaljockey to post his latest exploit. Zambia this time...
Thank you, thank you, thank you...Angola has shot to the top of my Southern African destinations list.
Great writing and very entertaining.
Hard as rock as well.....
Wow.. reports here never cease to amaze me. I put thought into whether I want to ride in heavy rain or not...incredible.
The dunes and tides section had me cringing just sitting and reading it in my chair, inside, in the air conditioning.
I'm fairly certain I couldn't have brought myself to do a ride like this in my twenties and at this point in my 40's, it will never happen. I'll be happy to get to a point where I can ride around the local parks with confidence :-0.
Thanks to all that do these reports, it's incredible to read them.
Just finished my second MJ story (RR), and like the first it makes me motivated. It's Fantastic!
Hope you don't mind my quoting you MJ.
It paints quite a picture!
Came upon this as linked from the Zambian Joyride RR (see Awe. Some. above). This one is even better. Thanks for a great read with great insights about a great ride.
Many non-riding friends have seen and been impressed by "Long Way Round" and asked me what I thought of it. It's hard to explain to them that while I think it was an entertaining program, I didn't regard it as much of a noteworthy feat of two-wheeled adventuring. I now have a better answer, I'll tell them that if they want to learn about what real adventure riding is, I'll give them a link to this tale.
As the igniter om most modern bike are powered from the battery, I'm sure the hard starting was mostly due to the sick battery...?
wow! im speachless
thanks a heap for sharing this mate, it wasnt just the ride that made me read this twice it was the people.
Fantastic ride report, immensely inspirational, thank you for sharing .
+ 1 Great ride report Amazing photos And TTT for the newbies
one of the best ride reports ive had the pleasure of reading. took some time to find it again so i could share the link with some friends.
glad i did. going to flip back through it again. great.....great stuff here.
great ride report.
thanks for a great report.... it nice to hear reports were the 'boat was pushed out' you discribed it exactly what I thought when I was in deep soft sand in the sahara over 700km from anywhere. I had only 10pound pressure in my tyres.... do you reduce your tire pressure? if you carry a small pump between you could try it. It certainly makes a difference to the LC.
If you did it again what about using the dunes, as you said it was firmer to walk on!
all the best for you future adventures am sure you will find somwhere else to 'push the envelope'
I just read this report again for the 2nd time ............ no wonder 5 stars on this forum is known as Metaljockey ............. you my broer truly rule.
bump to the top for the n00bs-this shit never gets old
I love picking back through this thread.
Truly great stuff.
