dunno, haven't heard from the old dog for a while now.


Also, been riding on some awesome roads eh, absolutely pristine virginal tarmac snaking through the jungle. Amazing stuff!!! Is a shock to hit the really lumpy stuff again afterwards. Been wishing you were here as well the whole trip when we get to those magical bits of road. I have flashbacks of us racing the gorge to Gissy, the red mist descends and I ride like a nutter!!! great fun.



We're heading off today from Libreville so I don't know when I'll be back on the net next.

"World worst drivers
The Nigerians are the worst drivers in the world."

Reminds me of when I was working in London for a car rental company, all the Nigerians would come in to hire cars with their national licenses that had a big NOT FOR USE IN NIGERIA stamp accross the front. ahr.. no car for you.

Cry Vale Mikey

This is the shittiest news I have ever been woken to hear.

Mike was my "other brother". I've known him since High School, went to Uni with him, flatted with him, and was best man at his wedding.

There was nothing I wouldn't do for Mikey.

God speed Mikey. God speed.

My love and condolences to the Rose family at this time. We are thinking of you.

Cry Vale Mike Rose

>> Edit: To explain.. I started a thread in the Australian Forum, where I spend most of my time, and Mike got to meet a few ADV members. Most of the following replies where posted in the Australian forum, hence many of the replies are directed to me. I asked a moderator to add them here to Mikes Ride Report.


I've just been woken this morning to hear the worse news possible.

My best mate Mike has died while traveling in Africa. He was riding from London to Capetown.

Mike was keeping a blog on ADVrider, Read it if you get the chance. You'll laugh like never before. You can find it here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=535310

I loved Mike like a brother. He will be sorely missed.

My love and condolences to the Rose family at this time. We are thinking of you.

Can't believe it. I was following this thread and was getting worried about the bad luck they've had.

Condolences to you the family and friends.
