55mph - This is Africa ! Chapter 01
As a great way to finish 2019, photographer Rowland Kirishima and myself, Keisuke Kawanishi set out on a bike tour from Europe to Morocco, Africa. As Morocco is located on the northern tip of the African continent, it is an exotic country with a mix of African, Arabic and European cultures.
Why Morocco? Simply put, Morocco was in the book "55mph (55 miles)" published by Yamaha in the 80’s. This book, with its MOTORCYCLE UTOPIA concept, showcased various places around the world that were visited by motorcycle. Wonderful travel articles were a feature in the book with bold, stand-out photographs, and details of thrills and experiences specific to each destination well elaborated within each section.
