  • Thank you all so much for all the name suggestions!! ❤️❤️ So many incredible names were mentioned, but the first name that spoke to me was the one I picked. The name for my new partner in crime CRF250L is... SAVANNAH!! 😍 Let’s go!!

    • @Martin Forrester cool i have the 89ties ZX 10 call her Big Bertha too we are ridding together since 1991 greeting from Germany Noraly keep on ridding out there but stay safe 👍🏍

    • Sana all may motor

    • Great Choice! 👊

    • Great choice! 👊

    • Hey never stop for the refund light in South Africa especially in some areas at your discretion because of safety issues like robbery. That's why the locals don't stop. Stay safe. At night or busy ours stay careful.

  • Glad to see you on the road again. I must admit I tuned out for awhile when you were back in Europe as it was not the same as your usual riding adventures. I was wondering where you were going to start back since South America still appears to be going overboard with lockdowns which must be hindering completion of your travels there. I think SA was a great choice and look forward to following your journey. Beautiful first day!

  • Man, what a beautiful place. I've aways thought I'd never go to S.A. because of the dangerous reputation, but I suppose if you know where to go, and where to avoid, you can have a really nice experience.

  • Buenas Rutas ! desde Argentina

  • The orange fluffy things with the bobotie are called pampoenkoekies, roughly translated it is called pumpkin cookies, but it is called pumpkin fritters in English, and it is mashed pumpkin mixed with flour, eggs, and cinnamon

  • Thank you so much for your videos. I really love them.

  • Editing muat be tough for you with both front and back GroPro

  • They are jumping red light as they don't want to get mugged. Remember, the law and order situation is at the bottom for Joberg as well as whole SA.

  • Good travel with moto bike so inspiring to me ... I love moto bike .

  • What a nice place to stay! I just happened onto your channel looking for videos on adventure bikes as I'll be getting my motorcycle license this summer. Love your videos, keep up the great job!

  • Sana all may motor

  • Was she able to register the bike on her name ?

  • Thank you so much! It is so amazing and surprising experience to travel with you through Africa. Never thought it is so pleasant place. And those views.. so fascinating!

  • I think the backlight on your bikes cluster isnt working

  • I am really happy you are back on the road!

  • South Africa People are good people.

  • riding on such roads, the life bike's tyre become half

  • Tks

  • Noraly , you were soooo brave in Argentina, You nearly got loss, but I prayed for you, and always will that the Lord Jesus will always protect you.

  • Great start for a promising adventure :)

  • Meat pie with Yorkshire puddings and rice. Why didn't I think of that ~s~

  • "Don't know what this is but I'll eat it." --- ha ha, best way to discover new cultures. :-)

  • hey are going all the way to cape town ???? I will be really happy if you were passing by me Lodge in wilderness. The Lodge is called " Nima Lodge " I will be happy to give you a free stay in our accomodation so I can meet you in real, chat about your experiences here in SA. Im from canada and I moved here only 2 years ago. I just bought my first motorcycle, its a small honda xr 125 that I use mainly on dirt road. I just thought it will be great to meet

  • intro the hundert 👍🏼👍🏼 Follow you

  • I'm really curious about how you pack a big suitcase of stuff onto a motorcycle

  • Don't miss us savannah

  • Best advice I received living in Jo'burg...never stop at a red light unless essential !. You would love Pilansburg National Park...it is set in an extinct volcano

  • Very good

  • Come to botswana

  • The true adventurer! Noraly, I wish I had even one tenth of your spirit, but I’m seeing the world through your eyes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Stray safe 😊 ride safe 😊 .. we miss this adventure 😊 hooray....😅

  • 👍❤

  • Done watching all the video for 4 days. I can say that I’m already visit different country. No need to go there physically

  • What's the GPS you using again what's the name of it does it require data so I don't have to use my phone for the GPS?

  • I would love to do something like this! Ride safe.

  • It’s a pity she never give the name of the restaurants nor accommodations 👎

  • Ppl watch this?

  • Lady, aren't you getting enough adrenaline ? They'll eat you there )))

  • Boy IDK I've done many motorcycle trips but JUST ME.... before I'd travel a place like Africa or any 3rd world country I feel my 5 trips to and around Alaska is the ultimate trip..

  • Just found your channel today; thanks youtube ! Youre a good photographer and presenter. Well done !

  • Looks like a really nice place.

  • Wow the drone shots at the end were FANTASTIC

  • Just today started season 5. Fantastic! Always enjoy your videos :)

  • Welcome back! Good to see you. Enjoy

  • Glad to see you again brave & lovely

  • ليش ما في ترجمه عربي

  • Beeing in South Africa you should definately go see The UBUNTU movement and Michel Tellinger. That will be a great experience for your travel magazine. Michel is a great person that also can give you perfect networking within the country :-)

  • That fluffy yum, yum, yum looks like a mini Yorkshire pudding normally eaten on Sunday with Roast Beef here in the UK and as for the main course, a sort of Curry with plain boiled rice and veggies. So the bridal suite and where pray is your man hidden? Cheers Noraly.

  • Is there any plan to travel whole Africa or just South Africa?

  • with that bike after ridding bigger bikes, all the dutch's circuits training & personal training YES everything will be a peace of cake for you!! good good good for you!!

  • Not this motorbike I like ur old one....

  • Thank you so much Noraly for this awesome and refreshing content!

  • You deserve the best room wherever you go Noraly!

  • Nice recovery to an otherwise bad day.

  • Fantastic ! it reminds me of when I was ten years old me and my brother bought a honda 50cc motorcycle for £20 and rode it all summer long on dirt roads similar to them, then we sold it for £20 great memories.

  • 🆗🆗🆗🆗🆗🆗🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔🧉🧉☕☕😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘

  • wow

  • It was pumpkin fritters that was served with the bobotie.

  • You riding in JB like that with gopros and stuff in plain sight is just pure inconsciousness. You had luck down there, people get robbed, carjacked and abducted on a daily basis for less than that. I’m not sure if you just didn’t made research or just go ahead knowing the risk.

  • From India 🇮🇳

  • Super awesome

  • 3:22 - Se adelantaron para no darle nada a el hombre que pedía dinero.

  • good

  • 👍👍

  • Should be an excellent choice. Stay safe.

  • Great video, great adventure, love the drone footage... and I love to follow your travels on the map...

  • So what kind of saddle bags can be hung on the muffler... I like your adventures...

  • Happy to follow your channel again.. very smooth first day ride and the sceneries are just beautiful. Be safe and stay safe.. Love from Malaysia.

  • And keep safe too

  • Yeah! Back to off-roading for Noraly! And, Savannah . . . great and fitting choice for your newest motorcycle's name.

  • I had fun riding along with you. So beautiful thanks for the drone so wonderful!!! ❤️❤️🌈

  • So nice is it near Tanzania ?i have my good friend here.

  • Great video, thank you Noraly. 👍🏼🎉💯

  • Look for ivermectin in Africa look it up it is being used on China bug

  • 😀👌🌷 Superb as ever 👍

  • do you remember "pide" ? :D pide or bobotie? which one is more beautiful?

  • How are you finding the limited top speed of the CRF? I could rarely get more than 110 kmh from mine, and on main twin carriage way routes that was a pain. Also, the suspension was very soft. To keep the CRF I would have had to change the rear spring at least, and that is without luggage.

  • Hello! Tell me which is the camera that you have mounted on the motorcycle, the one that records you, the stabilization is surprising!

    • @Toto Arriba Yes, you're right, I just wanted to confirm which of them is the one that is mounted on the handlebar (I guess it's the gopro Max)

    • Please check her homepage. Gear and equipment Season 5. A GoPro Hero 9 MediaMod, a GoPro Max 360 and a DJI Mavic Air 4k drone.

  • Good to see you back on the road.

  • The video looks amazing.what camera do you use on helmet?

    • Please check her homepage. Gear and equipment Season 5. A GoPro Hero 9 MediaMod, a GoPro Max 360 and a DJI Mavic Air 4k drone.

  • Jo' is about 80km from Randfontein to Daveyton (W to E) and 60km from Centurion to Alberton (N to S). I was there in 2013 and don't remember it was so big Oo Have a fantastic journey :D :D I hope you will drive into the Drakensberg and the south and west coast, it's magical ^^ If I remember weel, Cape T is the safiest place in the country, Jo' and Pretoria the worse. Try to go the the Temple of the Understanding in Durban, it's very very beautifull inside. There is a big park of big cats near Hluhluwe (pronounced chouchou-oui in french), you can huge some cheetah

  • I saw your post for international women day. I'm still not sure what an international woman is. But i will say that people don't call you that naive blonde girl because you're a girl. They call you that because you do naive things while traveling. You trust many people who you do not know and could have very bad intentions for you. I'm honestly surprised you haven't been robbed or kidnapped yet.

  • Please be careful

  • At least they drive on the correct side of the road.

    • I was surprised when Noraly said "Oh, left." I thought Great Britian, Australia, and Japan were the only countries with left-hand drive.

  • 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍😎

  • Himalayan or CRF - what would you choose? :)

  • in South Africa we have many rules and laws and few pay any attention to them

  • What an adventure, hoed af! Wish you a safe and great drive. If you get close to Somerset West, in the Cape Winelands, you are gladly invited to stay at Albourne Guest House. All the best and enjoy this beautiful country. Hope to meet you in S/W.

  • I admire you Noraly..you are super brave and super skilled lady I am Ms Brigitte from Philippines I'm inviting you to travel Asia also and Philippines is a beautiful country with amazing views beaches Love yah

  • It is so great to see you on the road again, and I am absolutely enthralled with your videos, specially with the aerial videos, it gives me such a true sense for the place. Thanks for sharing your adventures. I wish you all the best for as long your heart's desires. Stay safe.

  • Well done and very interesting, looking for your more sharing in South Africa. 👍

  • Glad you are back. Beautiful country. The air crew with which I flew back in late 70s flew into Jo-burg many times. I missed making those trips by a year or so. I did make it to Dakar Senegal for a week though. Way different than where you are. Reading through the comments, many people are concerned for your safety. And I am thinking, Huh? You rode through Iran, Turkey, India - there are bad people no matter where you go. I am guessing you are far safer there than the streets of Chicago. I believe for you to have gone where you have and met the people you have, you refuse to live in fear. God bless you and watch over you as you continue to bring to 40K + subscribers a degree of joy and a sense of freedom that we/they can get from no other source. Thank you for being brave. My grandparents were from the Netherlands so I am 1/2 Dutch. It's like we are related and that is a satisfying thought. The Dutch are strong, brave, and industrious people. You do them honor in what you do and how you do it. Again - God's speed every day.

  • The scenery is so beautiful. Right now over here is all cloudy and gray.

  • The yellow fluffy thing is probably pampoenkoekies. Usually sweet.

    • Also known as pumpkin fritters, pampoenkoekies can be sweet or savory. Thanks for the name, Jan Jenning.

  • Ah, yes, the honemoon suite. Just as I was wondering at what point will Noraly decide that having a husband and a bunch of kids is as good, if not better, than riding a bike all around the world. Anyway, I am (still) available. Don't know for how long, as there is another pretty blonde (at my workplace) showing substantial interest, but will wait for a bit, in case Noraly decides to come back to the honemoon suite with me as her honey :)

  • What happened with Royal Enfield??????

  • Do you get the audio from the Garmin GPS on your headphones of your helmet? if yes, how did you make it happened ?

    • Copy and paste from her homepage : Motorcycle clothing I am wearing the same helmet as in the previous season: the Arai Diamond White Tour X-4, with a Sena 3S headset incorporated in it so I can hear the directions and listen to Spotify while riding! I brought the adventure outfit that Rev’it sorted me out with several months ago, which is the Horizon 2 Ladies Jacket and pants. I also decided to bring the high boots that I got for motocross and enduro, the Expedition H2O boots. For gloves, I brought the set that I also had with me in South America, during season 2, the Sand 3 Ladies. These gloves are super comfortable and great when you ride in hot climates!
