The Ride to Half a Million Miles

Cape Town

The final leg of the trip was only two and half hours long,  a blink of the eye compared to flight before.  30 hours of travel later I see my friend Tony who I haven't seen in almost 3 years waiting at the lobby of the airpot in Cape Town. 

    Tony who is from  Cape Town rode his R1150GSA from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the USA in 2011.  When he entered the USA at Laredo,  Motohank's was his first stop.

    We've become good friends and often in touch.  Tony has been very helpful with coordinating the shipment of my GS. 

     As I mention before, my GS is about three weeks behind schedule of the original arrival date.

Tony and his wife Cheryl have been very kind to show me around the Cape Town area.  I'll tell you now that this is a fantastic city.   it has so much diversity in cultures, foods  and districts.
