Adventure biker saves calf
Think of motorcycle adventure riding and a picture of a dual-sport bike thundering loudly in the dust along a lonely gravel highway might come to mind. But browse around popular adventure bike forums and you’ll notice the riders’ passion for wildlife and animals in general. These guys ride not just for fun but also to get closer to the “life out there”… and to embrace it.
While taking part in the qualification trials for the Amagezi bike rally, South African adventure rider Johan Gray spotted a calf that fell into a canal and did not hesitate to turn his BMW F800 around to save it, capturing the moment on his bike cam.
Well done, Mr Gray! And congratulations for qualifying for the trials as well.
Gray is a member of the South African Wild Dogs adventure motorcycle forum.
