new and need help
i'm a newbie and unsure of the procedures here.
here's a bit about myself.
i do have extensive travel by motorcycle under my belt, but not to south africa. in particular cape town.
i've ridden around the world in 1980 on a modified 1975 goldwing. spent about a year on the road (mostly no roads), ridden the three flags classic three times, six times to alaska and 4 coast to coast runs in canada. ridden all of united states with exception of hawaii...and the list continues to grow.
now however i'm somewhat long in the tooth. been riding for over 50 yrs.
for those living in cape town and in other areas of south africa...is safety and security a big issue? now before everyone goes a little wonky...i am fully aware of the dangers and steps to be taken in some of the other more iffy locales in the world.
my young niece and her two year old son are planning on moving to cape town in july for 12 months and know absolutely no-one at all there. she will be going to the university of cape town.
i will be renting a bike and intend on spending a month or so checking out the area and botswana as well.
i've read how difficult it can for individuals in south africa. can anyone shed some light on this for me. my nieces parents are quite concerned. they're not so concerned about me as i AM a bit of an adrenulin junkie
thanks guys...any ifo will be most appreciated
