Hi all ,

Some of you already know of our planned trip away down south, pretty much as far down as you can go before you hit Antarctica....
We are kinda cheating a bit as we will be flying into Capetown rather than biking there....
Plan is 3 days to acclimatise and get touristy stuff done, then 10 days of biking...
We will be on hired BMW GS1200...not our first choice but long story..
Anyway, Steve has started a blog which we will try and update along the way..
Here's a link to the blog [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
We leave on Tuesday 15th October Cool

In attendance will be
Stevecat  who has pretty much organised the whole gig
Gillybaby
Fatcat
Rosco
Dirt Bike Dave

Should make for an  interesting trip watch this space

Thanks Dave, it sure is "how low can you go"? Beats a Southern Softies ride out  Shocked

The bike choice was a bit of a classic Target Fixation, which no one wanted. The best sellers, in Europe, are available to hire. The Jap bikes have all been taken, umm.
Even going British didn't work out.

Na ja, dann ein Deutscher Panzer (Ah well, a German tank then)

Yebo yes, R1200GS's. However lots of people like them.

The bigger problem is being in a Rugby mad country in the semi finals. Have packed my Springbok jersey, just in case  rofl

Emirates call center told me they don't allow motorcycles on the plane as part of hand luggage Shocked All I asked was can I take my crash helmet as hand luggage!
