Hi Andy and Rattski
Yeah i love to hear of these nuty trips! Plymouth to Dakar in a £100 banger
I saw something about this years Cannonball run on the box the other day and the feds were all over it. Just a bunch of rich posers out for a sunday drive. No fun there.
As i was getting on the ferry in Tangier i saw a couple of guys getting off with 50cc scooters, one with a trailer, think they were heading to Dakar. ROFL! Thats more like it!! A friend of a friend went from UK to Syria on a Honda C90 once, said he should have taken a C70, something to do with less electrics, can't remember what. And there was a guy on here i think who's been to south africa from europe and back a few times on a SR250 (crappy commuter/learner road bike), frame kept snapping, welded it up and carried on! We'd have been travelling by donkey a hundred years ago so it's not so mad really and you certainly get more respect in poorer countries if you turn up on/in something cheap. Its the way to go!
And yeah that Tizi-Illissi is HIGH man! what you doing up there with a 7 ton truck
CU there next time!
