A report from the online news service of the Afrikaans Namibian Newspaper ‘The Republikein’ Recorded June 10, 2010.

Byna 42 jaar terug, op 9 Julie 1968, het ses mans en ‘n gids uit Kaapstad vertrek om met Vespas deur die Visrivier op die gebruiklike staproete te reis. Hulle uitdaging was om die eerste wielspore in die Visrivier te los.
