What's the best fridge?

Does anyone have any advice as to a good fridge for the rear rack which takes a six pack?

If you are on a bike, this might be the best fridge there is ;-)

Hi. I am researching 4 x 4 fridge-freezer options for a friend in Northern Mali. He wants a small, (20 Litre max) fridge, 12/240 V +gas, with a thermostat, for use in the space between & behind the driver/ passenger seats ...
I want to be able to recommend one to him, but I can't seem to find exactly what he's looking for.. (Maybe cos of my bad searching, but hey, I knows nathin' 'bout these things!....)
Can anyone recommend a fridge to those specifications, please?
Has anyone experience of sending a fridge to West Africa ? What's the best way ? Can it be bought on-line and sent/ delivered directly from the retailers, same as buying stuff on Amazon etc., ?
and Thank you,
Tifinagh

Soak a rag in petrol, wrap can/bottle in it, place in net or tie to string, swing above your head as fast as you can for 30 sec, repeat if neccessary.

For home use (i.e. day trip), it'd go with dry ice ...

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
