Rookie Rider 101

The How To Guide to off-road motorbiking:
Take one day to learn how to ride a motorbike courtesy of Roto Rookies then head for Madagascar three weeks later.

Day One
  • Collect bike (Honda 250) and ride in rush hour traffic looking for a hotel for the night. Remember to stay on the opposite side of the road you're used to.
  • Ride around until it gets dark and don't make eye contact with gendarmes - look like you know what you're doing.
  • Find out you don't know how to hill start then practically wheelie up the hill out of control.
  • Stall the bike 20 times because you're afraid you'll do the same on the next hill and hit a car or pedestrian.
  • Get rescued by @onegiantride who rides bike to top of hill.
  • Arrive at hotel wide eyed.
  • Eat.
  • Sleep.
