Trip Conclusion : 29,000 KM's, 9 Countries in 9 months. --- Hi TechnomadicJim here. I have mostly been posting on the Wild Dog forum about my trip as its more local but I'm a member here too and wanted to share with you lot. Time : I have 3-9 months. (I arrived a month ago on the 25th September.) Where : Southern Africa. Maybe up to Kenya but definitely South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho. What : Honda CTX 200 (AG Bushlander) Here's my "Planning a ride" thread I started on the WIld Dog Forum : http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=134555.20 Here's my Big vs Small bike discussion in "General Bike Related Banter" : http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=135182.20 I bought the Honda CTX 200 for 35,000 Rand (~£2150, ~2500). Read the big vs small bike thread for more info on why I decided to go for the CTX. I'm keeping the bike mostly stock but I did visit PistonPete at Outriders and had some 50/50 enduro Mitas tyres put on the bike. I may tweak the back rack slightly to allow my luggage to sit lower. I'm taking the bike on a short 2-3000km round trip of the garden route and route 62 as a test to make sure I'm prepared. This is where I shall begin my ride report : Cape Point on my first day heading out with all my gear.
