|Just having passed through a hectic storm|
Arriving in Windhoek, as it was Sunday, we headed straight for the first backpackers shown on the GPS.......very nice but full, almost overcrowded even so made our way to Paradise Gardens, where we set up tent on the pool deck. The place was really nice with a great host, all the facilities we needed and pretty close to BMW for sorting the bikes out.
Monday we finally headed over to BMW, 3500km and two and a half countries after the bike had actually broken down. They seemed to be very helpful, having ordered the parts in advance of our arrival as the bike was pretty close to end of warranty and we did not plan too much time in Namibia as well. Things started turning a bit ugly when they came back and mostly washed their hands of the bike due to their system apparently not confirming my warranty.
Well, you can imagine what happened next........having spoken to the dealer manager, nearly getting someone fired for incompetence and lack of, well just general customer service and manners, I managed to get everything, but the front wheel (which had corroded), sorted on my bike, and under warranty as well. The front wheel would have to wait until we get to SA due to the amount of time it would take to reach Windhoek. Delilah's bike was also sorted which meant we would, well should have a comfortable and safe last leg of the trip.
Heading back to BMW this morning, we picked up our freshly washed and fixed bikes, headed to the lodge to pack them up and were on our way, at 3pm, which should be enough time for us to reach Swakopmund...............................
