    Hoping to get a thread started for those who are local to Kenya and more specifically to Nairobi. Anyone else out there? Would love to swap parts and gear, put together group rides and share some chai.

    Let's get together.

    Hi Zulusafari...
    Just joined advrider.. and pleased to find this thread. I'm not in Nairobi very often, but am based in Amboseli, if you know it? Have lots of space to 'play' in.. get in touch? Also, in Nairobi this weekend (12-14th Feb) are you around? Be nice to meet up and make contact. Always looking for other people to ride with in the bush.. much more fun and safer!
    Give me a shout..
    Cheers![​IMG]

    just joined this forum after my brother told me about two riders in the mara over this easter. I would love to be part of such adventures. I have a yamaha xt600 which unfortunately has been giving me electrical problems of late. If you can recommend a good mech to have a look at it, i;ll really appreciate.

    hey! good to see new peeps! theres a guy out in lavington. his name is Chris Handschuh. he's located on marsabit road...a place called jungle juction. Take Gitanga road as if you are going towards Kawangware, then take a left onto Marsabit road, his is the 4th or 5th gate on the right side(black gate with a big monkey painted on it). He's a bit pricey but he does a good job!:norton

    Hey guys, great to know there are some riders coming up into a group for adventure. I have joined two different groups on my XT660X and they are both different (one for racers, another for closer to adventure riders).

    I want to ride to SA - or at least to Vic falls very soon. Problem is I don't seem to find any people who want to do a long ride. Loiyangalani would be great, but I haven't got the Africa Twin yet and the XTX won't make it that far North.

    Stay in touch guys, let's do a serious ride soon - especially if anyone is interested in a long haul, let's chat. 0722 614589
