I’m a Cheetah, Lion and then also a Shark supporter.
+- 3 Years ago we started planning this trip, and by the Grace of our Lord it’s all about to happen.
As we start this trip of a lifetime, with my wife as pillion as far as Nairobi, we hope that we can be a positive influence on at least one of our fellow Africans.
I will finish the trip in the UK where I will meet up with my wife, my daughter Samantha and son-in-law Brendon (poms) while my other daughter Nicole looks on from Cape Town.
Viva Africa viva.
I have been happily married to my husband for 26 years.
We are blessed to have raised 2 beautiful girls and because they are out of the home we now have the freedom to pursue a dream.
I grew up in JHB and we moved to EL 18 years ago.
The Boks are definitely going to retain the Web Ellis Trophy 🙂
Charl Wessels is from Uitenhage having attended Muir College.
He is a Geography teacher at Stirling High School.
He has been riding bikes ever since he inherited his father’s business delivery bike, a 50cc Honda. Since then he has acquired Honda 500 XT, Yamaha 600 Tenere, Honda 650 Transalp and now the KTM 950 Adv.
His hobbies are photography and travel, which are the prime reasons for making this trip. Twenty years ago, a year was spent travelling in Europe. Ten years ago, a year in Asia. And now Africa.
He also has a blog for the trip: www.teawithafrica.blogspot.com
KTM 950 adv and KTM 990 Adv. Both are same engine, only the 950 is carb, while 990 is fuel injected. These bikes are awesome trans-continental machines having won many Paris to Dakar races.
Short Motivation and Team Objective
The 2 orange machines are going to kick up some serious African dust.
