Regular Long Distance in Uganda

by Robin

Hey there. The thing I'm REALLY happy about is to find a forum for women riders. I've ridden over the years (I'm Ozzie & was in Asia for many years). I'm in Uganda and ride a LOT. We have orphans up north in Gulu, so I usually leave every Monday or Tuesday morning, back Friday evening. I'm looking for a Kawasaki KLR 650 because I do an average of 750-1000km a week, and a lot of it is on-road, a lot is hefty African off-road. So a Dual sport is really my only option, other heavier bikes would get stuck at the first foot deep pothole, so I wouldn't even get outta town. Ha! Any women on your team owned a KLR? Any comments? I've been riding Honda for years but am just about to step up, in a month or two. I like your site & will look at it more now I've found it. Great to be in touch! Robin

Found the purrrrfect bike

Just came across this post when I first joined. I got an amazing BMW Dakar Dual sport which has awesome balance on our deeply pitted mud/clay roads, goes through water like a duck, steady through sand & can handle the distance! An off-road dream! Anyone else riding F650GS Dakar out there? We can't have low riding bikes here even in the capital as the potholes are so deep, those bike's never come outta the hole! =) I enjoy the interaction with you ladies!
