How do they get there?

I've not had the priviledge to travel extensively through Africa. But from the little that I've seen during my trips to Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Kenya, there are motorbikes everywhere.

My observation can be confirmed by these pictures of transport in Lagos or this street photograph from Timbuktu, Mali.

My reasoning is that if they were able to get their motorbikes there, I see no reason why I cannot take mine there either.

Expect to see much more about a dreamed about trip through Africa on my red Gomoto!

Did you hear about the VW kombi (1970's) that a guy painted in zebra stripes and drove all the way from Cape Town to the UK?

I guess they simply don't build them like that anymore - but it shows you can take ANYTHING anywhere, if you put your mind to it.

Including a Gomoto!

I found this yesterday. I particularly appreciated the entry for March 11, 2005.

I am sure the Gomoto can do this!
