El Dominar, a recent recipient of new brake pads, fuel filter, air filter, multi-function spotlights and clutch cable, was ready for action.
Voi to Mwatate - 25kms of fast sweeping road where you can unleash your engine's full potential.
Mwatate to Wundanyi is 15km of absolute awesomeness. A steep climb with many hairpins. A narrow but brilliantly engineered road. This is the place to develop advanced riding skills, especially around Josa.
Decent sized, comfortable rooms. A single, B&B is 2k, 3k for a double. Strangely, some rooms didn't have mirrors. Piga selfie ujione.They also have cottages -8k for the large 2 roomed one - former governor Sonko stayed there once... #muchene
The hotel compound is very steep and the steps were built for a race of giants... Small kids, elders and the physically impaired would struggle.
On the return trip, along Mombasa Road, I endured plenty of MALICIOUS OVERTAKING by all the usual suspects - buses, trucks, Premios and the like. But being a Monday, at least those obnoxious road-grabbing Prados were few and far between.
El Dominar has never lacked for grunt, but it was a growling, snarling, fire spitting beast on this trip. The replacement of fuel filter, air filter and clutch cable plus the fully synthetic oil I'm using seems to have unleashed some hidden 🐎🐎🐎. You know things are 🔥 when you bounce off the rev limiter in 6th on a slight upslope ... Some hefty numbers came up 😈
Lovely adventure….looking forward to visiting this Taita
