BMW Motorcycles of Western Oregon Presents: Sam Manicom | Africa - A Dark and Dangerous Land

Many consider Africa to be a region of the world where it’s the norm to shoot first and ask questions later; where corruption and poverty rule. The truth? No smoke without fire?

Sam will take you on a yearlong ride the length of Africa. 6,500 miles top to bottom?, not when you are on a motorcycle and have the freedom of the road. Be warned though, Sam is a disaster magnet. If something wants to go wrong, it finds him. 

You’ll be taken to jail, to hospital, along remote desert and jungle tracks and Sam will explain how a biker’s guardian angel is one of the necessities of a long ride through ever-changing, fascinating yet demanding lands. Lands where humankind began and where the skills of a motorcyclist are never challenged harder.

You’ll be dropped into the depths of the giant Rift Valley. You’ll meet locals who will have you laughing, a very upset Brigadier General, a chief’s wife who will surprise you and you’ll have the heat and the scents of Africa brought alive. A magical, stunningly beautiful, addictive continent.
