Yamaha R3 review

Yamaha has done the biking community justice by engineering and introducing the R3 to the market and this goes a long way in horning riding skills amongst the new riders; whilst giving them both the fun and respect they deserve.

Oloitoktok to Taveta through Tanzania

From Tarakea border post everything was nice the Twisties waaaa! I have never seen, the road engineering was nice, in every twist the inner lanes are made wider than the outer you can go wider on a corner without entering the other lane.

I survived a terrifying motorcycle crash

Lots of accidents happen on Kenyan roads because drivers are often overwhelmed with work, fatigue… hence make bad decisions. Your mission as a biker is to help them make good decisions by riding at a speed they expect.

First impressions of Zambia

Zambian immigration was polite but careful - one look at my physiognomy was enough to send me for extra checks! I was allowed in, though!

Tips for bikers visiting other East Africa countries

They say Rwanda has the best roads in East Africa. There’s a lot of truth in this cliché. Some of the joys of riding on Rwanda’s well paved highways include the virtual absence of speed humps, and the abundance of signage everywhere. It’s very hard to get lost.

Easy Sunday – the Ngong Hills circuit

Destination: Muturis, a choma joint with a “food court” set up – different vendors offering mbuzi, pork and fish. Spacious, with a kids' play area. Good ambiance. Music.

Sala Gate excursion

A local guy called one crocodile and the reptile obliged and came out of the water. I had never seen or heard of humans calling crocodiles from a river! It was and still is intriguing to me.

End year solo ride

I chose to travel on this last day of 2021 to meet my other family members at the upcountry. I was to travel with my nuclear family, but I surprised them when I told her, "Mtaenda na gari, halafu mimi naenda na pikipiki". They never believed my words.

A Saturday in Hell’s Kitchen

For SAKAYO and i, it would be the first fully tarmac stretch of road, 4hr.20min to Marafa from Diani, 190kms and back.... Making it 380kms covered in one day and 8hrs of riding. I started early(6.30am) to Nyali to meet up with Ralf. Mother nature decided to start making things exciting by introducing a slight shower and slippery tarmac. The ride to likoni from Diani was therefore very sketchy, what with trailers from Tanzania filling the road with spray and matatus in a hurry to overtake. The ferry crossing was uneventful and the ride to Nyali rather pleasant. The weather had dried out as i crossed thr ferry and it was going to be a beautiful sunny day. Om arriving at Ralf's place, we talked a while and had coffee, before leaving for Kilifi.
