Motorbiking Madagascar 2013

I'd like to share a 30 minute travel documentary of my motorbiking adventure in Madagascar with the readers of this forum.

I got around on a trusty '95 Honda Transalp 600 which I rented from an ex-pat German fellow living in the nation's capital, Antananarivo.

A little narrative on the country and its people is included for those who may not know much about it. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

Cheers!

Excellent travelogue of a country seldom profiled. You must have film experience to turn out a product of such high quality.

Thanks Tyko, but I'm just winging it like everybody else.

Nice work!

Great video work there. I have messed around with videoing bike trips but it takes such a lot of work. And then the editing... Fair play to you for getting the job done.

I'm curious as to what gear you used? GoPro? DSLR?

Great job anyhow. Those Baobab trees are very cool.

I wish I could bloody well "wing it" like you can mate!!!!

Bloody great videomentary on a country seldom ever visited or mentioned in the media................maybe the good ol'US of A should send them some money to help them instead of whichever uneccessary regimes they're supporting presently.

Sorry Rocky. I'm a newbie here on this site and haven't figured out how to post photos into a thread yet. You can view about 30 photos from the trip at my flickr page here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/13051054@N04/

Hey Doc, yes Manfred is a great guy, and the old Transalp was superb.
His son, Winfried looks a bit younger in your photo, so I'm guessing you may have toured Mada a couple of years ago? Where can we find more pics or vision of your trip?
