A Motorcycle Diary

25 Aug

We left Duluth at about midday for a short 400km ride that felt like a 4000km ride because it was 35C and that made each mile feel like it was 10! The surroundings are however becoming more interesting and “photo-worthy” as the prairies are now behind us!

Our days ride…


Leaving Duluth..

We are spending the night at a small town called Marquette on the shores of Lake Superior and tomorrow we head for Bay City some 550km away.

Be a sport Many of us have the means and wherewithal to undertake the dreams we want but elect to choose otherwise, many however, do not and that is the purpose of this plea. Afrika Tikkun (http://afrikatikkun.org// ) is a South African non governmental, non profit charity organisation run by the Lubner family that in essence does just that; re-provide the possibility to dream and to create the possibility of turning those dreams into a reality.

Unlike many pleas of this nature, I am not looking for any kind of sponsorship for my trip, but I am looking for your donation, regardless of its size to Afrika Tikkun. Please pledge generously as this is a fantastic cause that will assist them to provide food, care, education, health and social services to those that are desperately in need.
