Solo Rider to Take on Africa in New TV Show set November 8th
Get the Sky plus ready for a new TV series following Motorcycle Explorer Spencer Conway as he heads around Africa riding through 34 countries, covering an amazing 34,000 miles solo and unsupported (not even taking the girl friend!), on a Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré.
We will find Spencer motoring his way down the UK to get the ferry off the little green gem and then across Europe for playtime to start in Tunisia. Spencer will be running down the east coast first to end up in the rainbow nation of South Africa.
Coming north will be a west coast drive into the more adventurous countries we know about. It's going to be interesting to see just what the real story is from a lone riders perspective. After more than a year on the road (when he can find any road) we can be sure there is going to be a take to tell and I for one relish the new blood to the TV screen.
