RALLY FOR AFRICA – SEPTEMBER 6, 2014 – FLORENCE, AL

It was a bright, sunny, Sunday morning in Nigeria when my dear brother Emmet Bassey showed up on a 1986 Kawasaki motorcycle. Emmet was the original owner of this bike, but the backroads and bush of the Nigerian countryside had taken it’s toll. I am confident that parts of his bike were held together by chewing gum and bailing wire. That was all fine until I realized that was my ride to Sunday morning services. We stopped three times to wire things back on during our ride.

Motorcycles have become a primary means of transportation in Nigeria. There have been areas where the roads were so thick with them you would have thought you were driving through Sturgis or Daytona during Bike Week. It was that Sunday ride to services, the massive numbers of motorcycles in Nigeria, and my own affinity for riding that influenced me to promote a Rally for Africa motorcycle event. I figured maybe my leather clad brothers here in the U.S. might rally together to help our hard-working brethren in Nigeria.

While details are still being worked out, there are few things that we do know. bikes01
