There are literally thousands of people travelling around the world or long distance adventures rides on their motorcycles that it has become so commonplace that I don't notice them anymore. The days of Ted Simons Open link in a new window, Tiffany Coates Open link in a new window and even the likes of Ewan McGregor/Charlie Boorman Open link in a new window riding their motorcycle around the world have become very common.

But sometimes you see someone who is going to make such a trip, and she/he is going to do it differently than all the others. One of those is Will Moore Open Anidiotgotbored.Blogspot.Co link in a new window. Will is planning to ride his motorcycle (more about that later) from London all the way to Johannesburg in South Africa. That's 25,000 kilometers and he's doing it to support British servicemen who got wounded in action.

So a noble cause. But now let's talk about his motorcycle. He's not going like many of his colleagues on a big bore BMW GS, nor on a KTM Adventure, not even on a Ducati 1200 Multistrada.

No, Will is going on a Suzuki VanVan 125. You read it right, he's doing the very long trip on a very under powered 125cc motorcycle. Granted, it's a very pretty retro-bike, with a big ass rear tire, but very, very slow with the acceleration of a snail on Tabasco (I know, my SWMBOShe Who Must Be Obeyed has one .. the VanVan, not the snail).

He has already received generous sponsorship from Suzuki UK Open Suzuki UK link in a new window, plus a few others, but he really asks anyone to donate to the Help for Heroes Open Bmycharity link in a new window fundraising. he is trying to raise £15,000 so help the guy out.

BTW, the headline of this article "An Idiot Got Bored" is not me insulting him, but that's the name on his own site.
