Video Of The Week
We stumbled across Mad Mick a fair while ago on YouTube and are only now getting around to sharing some of his exploits with you. We reckon he is a bit of a legend! I am sure that this is not exactly Honda engineers back in Japan expected people to be getting up to on the Africa Twin…
Mick is a skilled rider with over 40 years of experience and has done a great deal of adventure and enduro riding all over Australia. A few injuries have been sustained along the way like a smashed ankle and a broken collarbone while high-speed sliding around on a KTM 640, and more recently a messed up shoulder from a low-speed tumble on the Africa Twin.
Mick is known as Mad Mick for good reason. He is not scared of tackling anything on the Africa Twin and the bike is suprisingly standard. A cheap $60 eBay slip-on muffler, a bash plate, a Camel rear tank and some gearing tweaks are about the extent of modifications undertaken on this 2016 model.
Mick regularly rides with a group called MVDBR who put together this video of a few of his exploits. Enjoy.
Feel free to share any of your favourite videos with us here at MCNews.com.au as we start this new Video Of The Week series.
