    Hello all,
    Johnnybags here. Big Bear Trail Riders member and San Diego Adventure Riders enthusiast.
    My girlfriend and I are going to South Africa and are hoping to work some dual sporting into our intinerary.
    We've found a local operator but they only have bigger adventure bikes. Although we may have to go 2up, we were hoping to find an operator or contact that provides or has access to something smaller than an adventure bike so girlfriend can ride her own bike.

    Sorry if this was the wrong 'thread' for this but I am exploring ALL options.

    Any info would be appreciated

    Hi John.
    When in Cape Town ... I'd suggest you get hold of J├╝rgen of Le Cap Motorcycle Hire. He has a few DR 650s, and besides, will probably be able to help you if you are looking for something else. lecap.co.za
    Some great riding here - enjoy the trip.

    Thank you for the help. Here is the operator we found which got us thinking of the idea.

    Seems to be exactly what we want excpet for the rental bikes offered. Their smallest, XT660 Zenere has my girlfriend a little aprehensive due to taller seatr height and additional 160 lbs over her bike.

    I will check out your link.
    Thank you
