If you were planning a motorcycle trip to Africa, where you were going to traverse steep mountain passes, explore lesser travelled roads and visit remote places, travelling solo with a rough plan open to any opportunity, what bike would you choose to take? Would you consider the perfect motorcycle to be a 1951 Harley Panhead, a hard tail? That’s just what Gareth Jones from South Wales rode on his African adventure, a trip he had been wanting to do for a long time. If you’re wondering how he could justify taking a bike with no rear suspension you’ll have to factor in one of the most powerful emotional states a person can experience - passion. And when you’re passionate - the impossible can become the possible.
