The best path through life is the open road on a motorcycle and even better if it’s on gravel. Gravel Travel is organic podcast about everyday motorcycle riders, a journey through their lives as we travel with them sharing their experiences, tips and hardships. Awe inspiring, motivating and a educational journey. My own personal adventure did not start on gravel but it certainly gained momentum after completing a Cape to Cairo trip. I’ve always wanted to see and experience more and feel that sensation over and over again. Gravel Travel takes on many forms and I hope you will enjoy this ride with me.

    The Desert Rose!

    The Desert Rose!

    She’s no stranger to the competitive world and known as the Desert Rose(@taye).  At only 5 foot 2 and having competed in over a 165 off road races,  her latest and biggest achievement,  a 77th overall position in the Dakar rally is not to be frowned upon. Set to become the first women from Africa to finish the Dakar,  saw her lose out on this title due to mechanical problems.

    “I was planning to return to the Dakar on a motorcycle, but Covid-19 and all of its economic ramifications put paid to that. So I immediately accepted when offered the chance to go racing in both the South African Cross Country series and next year’s Dakar,”

    For the next Dakar she decided to change things up a bit and will navigate for Brian Baragwanath(@Brian)  in a CR6 two wheeled buggy.

    "The Baragwanath/ Perry/CR6 combination came into its own at the recent SA season-concluding race around Parys, when they finished third overall, closely behind the works Toyota Gazoo Hilux of Dakar legend Giniel de Villiers and Alex Haro"

    The 2021 Dakar Rally will start and end in the city of Jeddah and cover a total distance of 7 900km in 12 stages over 13 days. Being an expensive exercise, the team would love to hear from local sponsors who could get involved.

    Honda Quest Winners!

    On the final day and prize giving I chat to Annemien van der  Linde(@Anne) Riaan Fourie(@honda) Hardy de Kock(@specialised)Andrew Johnstone(@Andrew) media liason/presenter from Honda Quest and last but not least the winners Brian(@Brian) and Neil(@neil)

    "Honda Quest is not a race or a rally – it is an adventure expedition, designed to test human endurance and adaptability" (@Quest)

    Riaan Fourie(@honda)

    In a post Covid world, what’s better than getting back out into nature? Getting out into nature aboard a brand new 2020 Honda Africa Twin with the possibility of winning it of course!
    The finalists for the 2020 Honda Africa Quest battled through Quest Bootcam in March only to have the event postponed almost immediately with the global lockdown.
    After much fretting about whether all their efforts were in vain, many things may have changed in this brave new world, fortunately the spirit of adventure and Honda have not.
