Day 1: First kilometres, some rain and very sore behinds

We're soooo slow... 140 km to Rustenburg and we are already totally knackered. The 3,360 km we've got left seem just a little bit daunting... A combination of highway and some smaller roads around the beautiful Hartbeespoort Dam. You learn a lot those first 100 km
: how to do foot exercises on the side to keep your feet from falling asleep; how to avoid flying objects getting plastered right in your face; how to manage to stay on top when massive trucks overtake you with all their might... First night in a tent and a heavy storm gives us a warm welcome. Viva zip-block bags and dry bags -- THE thing to stock up on when embarking on a scooter safari during the rainy season...
