The extract below is from a lady that traveled by bike from London to Cape Town. She wrote a book called: Red Tape and White Knuckles: One Woman's Motorcycle Adventure Through Africa
Author: Lois Pryce
Price is R266

To most thirty-something women, walking across the street to get a skinny latte and the latest copy of heat in excruciating high heels is an all-terrain task in itself. But Lois Pryce isn't just any woman - nine to five and post-work white wine spritzers have never been her thing. Unafraid of a challenge - having already ridden her motorbike from Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America - she decided she could never be one to settle for a last minute package holiday in Viva Espana. So, she began the kind of adventure most of us could only ever dream of. Donning her sparkly crash helmet and armed with her trusty maps and a baffling array of visas, Lois got on her bike once more to make an impressive international journey. Alone. No support vehicles, no fancy GPS and no satellite phone.Leaving from London, finishing in Cape Town - and the small matter of tackling the Sahara, war-torn Angola and the Congo Basin along the way - this feisty independent woman's grand trek through the Dark Continent of Africa is the definitive motorcycling adventure. It was certainly never going to be easy but, equipped with a formidable strength of character and an immense passion for life, Lois Pryce's astonishing achievement is an inspiration to us all. She paints a vivid picture of travelling through the vast African landscape. Colourful and hilarious, Red Tape and White Knuckles is an action-packed tale about following your dreams that will have you packing your bags and jetting off into the sunset on your own adventure before you know it.

Exclusive Books is cheaper by about R20.

That equates to 2 liters of fuel, or 36km on my bike.

Thanks Perske - all the BS withstanding above, will find it where-ever and buy is at the best price so as to save on the 40 Km's the R20 saving represents on the LT. Given the fact that we ride the most expensive upmarket bikes - cannot understand what the issue is on the R20 saving. LeRoy lol!

Quite true - KFC and Macdonalds. If you feel like a rennie - you buy the latter. Enjoy - not the take-aways, and safe riding. LeRoy
