After Indonesia trip, we started to talk what we will do for future and how we will live together. At the same time, i was telling him non-stop my dreams, which are, go to Africa by motorcycle; actually go to a world trip, which I have already started, from South America.
In the beginning, he didn’t agree with me go to Africa by motorcycles. Because he never ride motorcycle and also he never interest to ride a motorcycle. But he agreed with me to discover the world.
He also agreed what I told him in the beginning “I have been looking for my home. Somewhere in the world, I am sure that I have a place belong to me. When I see it I can understand and I want to live there.“
We needed to figure out how we will travel. We don’t need to hurry up because it is a big step in our lives. My brother was getting married. So, he came to Turkey to meet my family. Ferry and I didn’t have motorcycles at the moment but my brother has two. He was getting ready to Latin America trip with his wife. He gave us his motorcycles. But I didn’t ride real motorcycle more than 10 years now, how can I ride? I did a little practice and I saw that you never forgot when you learn one time. We got one motorcycle and teach Ferry how he can ride. It passed 2 hours he was making circles and U turns very well.
After 4 hours, he was making very well breaks. 6 hours later, my brother came and he got surprise when saw Ferry. My brother asked me that “I am sure, Ferry never ride before!“ Maybe he never ride motorcycle before but his balance is amazing because he has been cycling since he was 4.
Ferry loved to ride motorcycle. When he was leaving from Istanbul we decided that I am going to buy a motorcycle in Turkey and he is going to get the driver license and a motorcycle. He got his license in 3 weeks and bought motorcycle as well.
Africa is really tough, especially West Africa if one person has started to ride now and other person didn’t ride motorcycle more than 10 years. We don’t need to be crazy right? Go to Europe first. Put a target for you trip, which is North Cape. If we really like and enjoy to ride motorcycle we can go to Africa and make it CapetoCape . If we turn our road to Africa it means for us we can make a motorcycle journey to discover the world!
We traveled in Europe 4 months and made more than 20.000 km. We really enjoyed so much. After that we went to Turkey before go to Africa. Because I know a lot of people who, can help us to get our motorcycles ready to Africa.
We have changed some part of our motorcycles. We went to “Ersoy Moto“ for a week. He teach us a lot technical things how we can fix our motorcycles.
So, our trip was in the beginning go to North Cape. After that we said go to CapetoCape road by motorcycles. Now we are saying that we are in the world trip by motorcycles! How long can we go? Where can we stop? We have no idea. We will see!
