    There are motorcycle owners, and there are motorcycle riders.
    And then there are those of us for whom motorcycling is an essential part of our journey - a way of life, and looking at it.

    Africa? A stunningly beautiful, addictive continent, or dark and dangerous?

    Join us at Motorcycles of Charlotte on Wednesday October 2nd for an open house presentation evening with Round the World motorcyclist and author Sam Manicom.

    Samís presentation is going to take you riding through a magnificent land - Africa.

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

    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.

    Youíll be taken to jail, to hospital, along remote desert and jungle tracks and Sam will explain how a bikerís 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.

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

    *** NEWS For the first time at a presentation evening in the USA, Samís partner Birgit will be with us.
    Birgit and Sam rode together for 4 years of the 8-year RTW journey; Southern Africa, South and Central America, and on up through North America. This plucky girl started her ride with Sam on her own motorcycle; a 1971 BMW R60/5. The day she rolled her wheels in Africa for the first time she had just 600 miles of experience as a motorcycle rider.

    Sam and Birgit will also have copies of their 4 books with them for a book signing session. Cash only please.
