The Yamaha AG200
This is the trusty Yamaha AG 200 that I will ride for 1550 miles through South Africa starting in Port Elisabeth and ending (hopefully) in Port Alfred.
The AG200 is basically a bike built for farmers and, so far as I am aware, is not readily available in the UK. The bike is a single cylinder 4-stroke of 199cc and has a 5-speed gearbox and is capable of pulling the skin of a rice pudding (just). Bore and stroke is 67mm x 55.7mm and it weighs in at 112kg carrying 10 litres of fuel.
Over 100 of these bikes will be donated to Health workers in Africa and be maintained by Riders for Health. Please support my challenge by making a donation using the link in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
