Gear

For this trip we chose the ride the Honda Africa Twin. A brave stallion that trots like a charm.

We ride the same type of bike, since that might come in handy when one of them decides to have a failure. And we don’t have to carry around multiple spare parts.
The first models of the Africa Twin are dated back to the eighties, specially designed to ride the famous Paris – Dakar rally. A machine that had to be able to cross every kind of badass terrain, suitable for long distances and easy to repair. Personally, I am a sucker for everything that is old, iconic and original so I feel honored to drive this piece of technical brilliance across the eastern part of the world.
