East Africa - May-Sept 06

Hi All

I'll be in East Africa on an old XT600 Tenere (1VJ) from May until September. Going solo, and if anyone fancies catching up for a , or sharing a particularly challenging stretch (Marsabit Highway?), drop me a line.

Paul

I'm looking at leaving late August/ early September from the UK down to Cape Town (eastern route) going solo. Would be keen to catch up along the way. No Yamaha though mate, just my sturdy Suzuki DR650 RSE.

We should stay in contact to see how each other is getting on.

Gentlemen,
I am arriving in South Africa mid August and heading solo up the east side after Namibia. Expecting to arrive in Ethiopia Dec.
On a overloaded F650, look for the guitar on the back if it hasn't been stolen. Will go out of my way for a pint with y'all.
Cheers,
Rene

Hi Joe, That would be pleasant, wouldn't it! Beer it is, then. Somewhere in north-east Africa. I 'll be there!
