The Transkei is beau­ti­ful but well known as hav­ing some of the most dan­ger­ous roads in South Africa. We received a lot of atten­tion at gas sta­tions and the kids absolutely loved the Harley Davidsons.

With cat­tle and sheep walk­ing wildly on the tarred road in the Transkei, it’s no won­der it’s such a haz­ardous ride.

It was a very spe­cial and spir­i­tual ride.

Double-​amputee Bushy McK­elvey joined Dave and the team just before Kok­stad. It is spe­cial to have two indi­vid­u­als with three Guin­ness World Records between them on motorcycles.

Bushy is the holder of the world record for the great­est dis­tance on a motor­bike in 24 hours by an indi­vid­ual, cov­er­ing an incred­i­ble 3 257.5km on a motor­bike in 24 hours.
