    Helo guys,
    Last year I ve made with my friend a trip from Poland to South Africa / Cape Town; I took us 105 days to do the trip; We were both riding Yamaha TT600R 2001 bikes. I ve just finished editing the movie from this trip.
    You can watch the movie from my site http://motoafryka2005.prv.pl -> MOVIE (choose Movie! from left menu) or download it. The movie is quite long so buy yourself few beers, order a pizza, put your headphones and enjoy!

    LOL. Would you take THOSE bikes on a long ride again? It seems that they're rather unreliable.

    P.S., in the US we say, lefty loosey, righty tighty! You're in deep shit if only one man in your crew is sure about this. :rofl Admittedly, I still get confused if the bolt is upside-down and I'm looking at it sideways.

    Freaking awesome!
    Ya, the bikes looked a bit unreleable, but as they say, "It's not a party unless something gets broken!"

    helo guys, I m happy that You have enjoyed watching this, even if most of the conversations are in polish; :D I m just working on english subtitles but just couldnt resist to show this movie :D

    english subtitles should be ready in about 2 weeks.

    my bike - I love it and after cleaning it a bit plan to take it for another nice trip ;) breaking bikes is a part of our trips ;) Ukraina (KTM 640 engine completly destroyed, Honda Transalp - clutch burned twice), Mongolia (another KTM 640 engine destroyed), Africa2005 (yamaha problems),... you know all bike may have problems but the yamaha is versy simple to fix, greate suspensions and .... its a really sexy bike :D

    You make do with what you have. I had MZ TS-250 in Poland in the 70's took me everywhere and never broke. Also had a Fiat 126P and took that all over Europe. Did 50,000 Kms in less than 10 months.
    Again, took me everywhere, never broke. Only had one problem with a oil seal under the ignition. Looking forward to seeing the vbideo.
