Solo Adv Tour Final Day: A peace out from me, 1800kms on a 250cc dual sports! The last day was a 500km highway stretch (no fun with a 250), after 3 hours I got used to driving straight, 115km/h when flat, 80km/h when the wind was hitting in, or it went uphill. I arrived home safe and sound, and all in all, it was an awesome experience! A full 2-3 month solo African motorbike tour is high on my bucket list, but i first want to drive around countries with less hazards! 3 crashes, 8 days, 42 hours on the bike and 1 beast of a yamaha that survived heavy offroading! at South Africa

Solo Adv Tour Day 7: back with the crew from Stellenbosch, this day was all about surfing and relaxing! It was so cool to catch up, talk about the last week and enjoy some beers with friends. Riding solo is fun, but you dont get to share experiences with others🌋 here I realized that driving alone is not something I wanted to do for one or two months👊 PS: also crashed my drone here🙏 at Victoria Bay

Solo Adv Tour Day 6: Not so solo, as i met other stellenbosch students, and we explored tsitsikamma together✌ A long afternoon drive later, i was reunited with the crew in Victoria Bay, for some surfing🤗 @emiliairarrazabal @pupigomez @farielle_ at Tsitsikamma, Eastern Cape, South Africa

First Solo Adv Tour Day 5: When in doubt, go... at turtle speed?🏍 Most challenging day of riding in my life, i had 6 hours of serious offroading infront of me. Left at 8:00 AM with 0,5L of water as the other bottles were used for fuel. The offroading was amazing and challenging, until i fell off the bike onto my head. Landed in bushes, a branch scratched my exposed neck, luckily not more😥. After 10min a 4x4 came by, and gave me water and checked if I was good. The steering was off, a mirror broke off but the bike ran! I continued through awsome water crossings, monekys on the road and beautiful mountain passes. The bike and I survived🤗! Had a big lunch, drove to tsisikamma and arrived at 7:00 PM, 11 hours later✌ at Baviaanskloof

First Solo Adv Tour Day 4: Beer, good company and a sky like this✌😊 The first part of the Baviaanskloof is a normal gravel road, with beautiful mountains around. As i was tired from the last days, I only drove 4 hours, and gave my body half a day of rest. Here i started thinking about my big future trip, i was getting a bit lonesome at this campground, maybe i wasnt ready for solo adventuring🏍? At least not in Africa in the upcoming Summerheat, and with a fuel capacity of 140kms. In the evening another student arrived in his 4x4, i was happy not having to talk to myself🤗 #thisissouthafrica #advrider at Baviaanskloof

Solo Adv Tour Day 3: This was an awsome day of riding🏍 Went over seven passes and after taking a wrong turn and accidentally driving far into a township, I arrived at the mountain pass I planned to go on! Price Alfreds Pass starts in a jungle, leading to beautiful mountain side roads and in the end this📸: i was treated with this great ride, leading through a valley. I learned alot about gravel riding, as i was racing up in some parts😅 but this was just the preperation for the next crazy 2 days to come, and my body was already quite beaten✌ In the evening I prepared for the baviaans kloof, 4x4 territory and adventure rider heaven😇 . . . #wohza #goprophotography #gopro at Prince Alfred's Pass

Solo Adv Tour Day 2: On the first gravel road, I met a group of adventure riders, heading in the same direction. They took me to awsome trails on the way. This is the second thing I love about motorbiking, the comunity is so helpful and open. They then invited me for a braai (barbecue) for lunch, before they went in another direction🏍 When i arrived in Still bay ik darkness, I had no idea where to stay for the night. I rocked up unanounced at an AirBnB that was rented out, hoping to find the owner. The girls renting the place invited me to stay on the couch, and i then enjoyed an awsome braai and a few beers, before falling asleep infront of the fire. South African hospitality is just amazing! They didnt know me, and without hesitation, offered me a place to sleep and food👌 at Malgas

Solo Adv Tour - Day1: When I finally came to the first gravel road, kids were waving and smiling at me, while trying chase me on the bike. This brought me right back to my first bike trip in Vietnam, where there were to many interactions to count. You’re not behind a window, and people look at you differently, then when you’re in a car. The people start interacting with you, and being closer to your surroundings is why I love travelling with a bike. In the evening, I arrived in Hermanus, and enjoyed watching whales from the coast🐳 #wohza #gopro #goprophotography at Hermanus, Western Cape

Writing about my experiences of my first solo motorbike trip, every day has its own photo ⬇ :) Day 0: This one week ride was supposed to be a test run for my bigger trip, i planned to go to namibia - botswana - mosambique with my bike in december, if noone else was keen on joining, i would go alone🏜. So i needed to figure out if i like solo adventuring. My big dream was one day to travel from germany to australia, on a motorbike🌐. So friday afternoon i set off, with not much planning. All i knew is that i wanted to get to a very beautiful mountain pass, and along the way meet friends, that were also around the garden route. All i had was a huge smile on my face, and my beloved #lamaha . Braaaap was the voice that i would hear mostly the next week 🏍 #wohza at South Africa

First long solo tour on my little dual sports! went from the coast to the mountains, drove on mud, sand, gravel, rocks, pavement🌍 so much south africa has to offer, and although challenging, it is greatest explored with a motorbike👍 I fell from my bike, got frustrated, was filled with joy, and met awsome people. I guess thats what an adventure is all about? at Western Cape
