We have jumped ahead here and are getting ready for our 2nd day on the road. WET today!!! Yesterday we had hard rain but were off the bike and stayed pretty dry as the rest of the group were watching the penguins in the rain. We had strong winds and one stretch of road along the coast had the surf roll across the highway! Our timing was good as we avoided the ocean waves - only had to stop once for a turtle to be picked up off the road by a guy in his car so it wouldn't be run over - what he did with the turtle we don't know - put it in safe water or soup... you never know!
We were supposed to have an F850GS for our tour but when we went to the shop a few days before the trip the owner said there was a slight issue as the bike was so new there were no saddle bags or trunk... we let him know that it was an issue for us and basically would not use a bike without the bags. The issue was sorted and we ended up with an "upgrade" to a F800 adventure. Not sure it is an upgrade but I definitely preferred an older used bike that they couldn't nick pick the dings and dents that could occur on a brand new bike. We actually love this bike after one day riding.
Gotta go readjust our packing of the bike now, so picts and stories of our group later!
Quick update. Dirt roads. Ostriches by the flock. One safari under the belt. And amazing accommodations.
One tube of silicone and some gorilla tape for the leaky saddlebags (from some rain at night). $60 GPS from Amazon is still keeping us on track. Had to tape the mount on the bike but it works. Our wireless JM/Nolan helmets working great. Local SIM card for phone is a bonus. And the wine, company, and locals are still the best!
the fuck you say... really?????????????? wowzer.....
Beezer, you and I would get in trouble here...
Get some eggs!
One egg is equal to 24 chicken eggs. I stood on one. It can support 100kg. Ostrich makes an amazing steak on the grill!
Wow, I wouldn't have thought an ostrich could even light a grill.
I was thinking that same thing!
Putting on the BarbieQ apron seems problematic. Just Sayin’
Keep em coming.
Nice job on the adventure.
Where did you take that picture of Griz?
Lost a little weight but looking better than ever, house build is taxing me, I will have to get his secrets! Ostrich eggs? Putting your head in the sand?
Dirt mountain passed today. One troop of baboons - about 100 of them hiding in the brush until disturbed. Pics later for that.
Never mind the dirt mountains, we got those, and the bikes, damn, how about those Toyota vans, they had them in Thailand and they are just the tits, how come we can't get that chit!
Hippo in the mud and under water (that one made a charge for the boat!)...crocs nesting or jumping in next to us, elephants blocking the road... mating lions, every 20 minutes for 6 hours!
so no camping out then?
This kid isn’t camping ‘round here!
