Uk-Cape Town. Sept2010-Dec2010(ish)
I've been a lurker on the HUBB for sometime (I've never really felt I had much to contribute that hadn't already been said!) and a two times visitor to the HU meeting at Ripley (2008 and again this year, both superb!)
I've been dreaming and planning a motorbike overland trip for many many years and now the time has come - I leave the UK on Tuesday the 24th August, in 8 Days time!
I'll be travelling on my own, on my unreliable F650GS(2001), via the Belgium grand prix, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa. If all goes to plan, I aim to very roughly cover approx 1000 miles per week give or take which means the trip should take about 4 months ish. Maybe I'll be there or thereabouts in Cape Town for Christmas and New year...
Thought I would just say hello and if anyone will be along this route at about the same time then please say hello! Maybe we'll meet up along the way...
