Hi Grant and all,
I posted this on the BMW tech page but want to try here as well.
The biggest obstacle on my imminent Mozambique journey is the Limpopo River.
Right now the wet part of the river is 70 metres (200 feet) wide and between 40 and 70 centimetres (approx. 14 - 30 inches) deep (the dry part is 1km of sand...) There is no current to speak of and the river bed is sandy and flat.
There is no bridge and no boats or canoes of any kind. (Luckily, there are no crocodiles either as they have all been eaten.)
I doubt whether I'll be able to ride my R60/6 through but I'd be happy to be proved otherwise.
Any advice on riding, dragging, floating, raft-building or other assorted river-crossing magic tricks gratefully received.
