Equatorial Africa Expedition Welcomes Support From BMW Motorrad

Motorcycle Outreach (MoR) is delighted to announce that BMW Motorrad are again supporting an African motorcycle expedition by motorcycle industry lobbyist, overland rider and MoR co-founder Craig Carey-Clinch.

BMW Motorrad have kindly provided the exceptional R1200GS for Craig’s latest expedition to Equatorial West Africa. He will depart from the UK during the latter half of January 2008.

Craig will be conducting a research journey in advance of an organised expedition to Equatorial Africa in December 2008, which is being offered to motorcyclists by Globebusters Motorcycle Expeditions.

Globebusters have teamed with Motorcycle Outreach to offer riders this exciting new five week motorcycle expedition. The expedition will travel to the previously unexplored destination of Guinea Bissau, which will be something different for riders seeking to experience their own Long Way Down adventure.

A proportion of the trip price will go to MoR’s work to provide sustainable healthcare logistics, by motorcycle, in rural areas of Indonesia

Craig commented; “At the heart of any well organised and supported motorcycle expedition is proper advance route planning and research. At the heart of a demanding journey such as this should be a motorcycle which is well suited to the tough itinerary of a research trip.

1200GS“I am delighted that BMW Motorrad have once again decided to support a West African expedition which is connected to Motorcycle Outreach. In 2005, BMW also provided vital support, two GS650 Dakars and riding equipment for an expedition to West Africa where a visit to Riders for Health in The Gambia served to launch Motorcycle Outreach and commemorate the life and round the world journey of global rider, the late Simon Milward.”

“The R1200GS is an exceptional motorcycle with a Proven track record for reliability and versatility on what can be uncertain terrain and in the hot climatic conditions that are faced in the Sahara and West Africa.”
