Event Bio

Following his fairly epic ride from Peterborough to Japan last year, Bike Magazine's resident (or not so resident) traveller, Jamie Duncan, is at it again. This time on a 26 year-old Kawasaki KLR650 Tengai that he bought for just £1,000 off of eBay.

South Africa is the target, but he's realistic, so, it's probably just as far as he can get. Follow the journey live here and in the pages of Bike Magazine each month.

Our cheap-as-chips Kwak Tengai has made it to Africa and only used umpteen litres of oil. Track us here http://t.co/XFuWDsZy22 #biketoafrica
Upon reflection, I've realised it was a mistake to leave the #tengai parked in the street last night. #biketoafrica http://t.co/sPb8dnoyYl
