Traffic in Africa

Looking at my decision to ride motorcycles in Africa, it was probably not the best idea. The road that I most frequently used was filled with heavy loaded tipper trucks, that left a tail of dust in the air when they past you. This caused a serious danger of invisibility, which has killed many motorcycle riders when they have been enclosed in a dust cloud and hit by a vehicle from behind. The first week I counted 5 accidents involving trucks. And then I decided that it was time to drive on the footpaths in the bush away from the main roads. It was too dangerous to drive next to the trucks…
