Repairs/Services in East/ Southern Africa
I'm based in Malawi and ride an 03 XT600e. I plan to do a few longer rides in the region ( I've yet to venture out of Malawi), and finally to ride the bike back to Europe late next year.
I had the bike serviced recently at the bike centre in Lilongwe with a South African guy Jimmy. (who was a great resource for anyone on the Capetown - Cairo route.)
We had a chat about bikes, and I'd intended to get the bike serviced and modified in readiness for longer trips. Sadly, I heard that Jimmy passed away earlier this year. RIP
I'm no mechanic and a novice rider, so I'd like to get info on bike repair centres in the region ( Dar, Nairobi, Lusaka, Harare, Mozambique) so that when I do strike out into the region, I know where to go, if I have difficulties.
Thanks for any help
