Back in Ghana
Returning to Ghana I believed I needed a bit stronger bike, and switched the Sukida with a used Yamaha AG 100. The Yamaha was ideal for my needs at the time. Its was simple and economical, had a 98cc two stroke engine with autolube system and CDI ignition that meant no plug oiling or fewer moving parts. The last thing I needed was a high maintenance machine!
Out on the dirt roads it has an extra low first second and third gear spread that is perfect for low-speed crossing on foot paths on the savannah, while fourth and fifth gears provide enough top-end speed to get you from place to place with ease.
In less then 2½ month I did almost 5400 km on it.
