Some people really personify adventure riding. Sam Manicom is one of those people. Wanting to do something completely different, Sam Manicom decided he wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle. Three months later with only the skills he’d learned riding on pavement, he set off to ride the length of Africa. His planned one-year trip turned into an eight-year epic across 55 countries.
Sam has condensed his journeys into four separate books in the order on which his journey transpired:
Under Asian Skies
Tortillas To Totems
Each is a great fun read and I learned a lot about Sam, his traveling companion Birgit and the people and places they visited along the way. Do yourself a favor and pick up Sam’s books a learn a lot about riding the world and how Sam (and Birgit) shrunk the planet as they traveled its surface.
You can get a signed copy of Sam’s books by clicking here at Sam’s own web page, or you can get them through the R2ADV Gear Store found at the top of the page.
