Honda has provided two CRF1000L Africa Twin adventure motorcycles and production support of the National Geographic Channel-produced “Riding Morocco: Chasing the Dakar” program.
Australian fashion model Laura Csortan will be joined by veteran rally rider Christophe Barriere-Varju to traverse on CRF1000L Africa Twins the course in Morocco, once part of the world’s most gruesome race, the Paris-Dakar Rally (now staged in South America as the Dakar Rally). On their journey, they will experience breathtakingly beautiful valleys and expansive vistas, making new friends along the way. The duo will introduce to the viewer, the bike ride of a lifetime.
Christophe will share his knowledge and demonstrate serious manual transmission off-road riding borne of his experience as a Paris-Dakar rider, while Laura will enjoy traversing an expansive continent on the DCT* model which does not require clutch operation. Their adventures, challenges, and encounters in Morocco will undoubtedly set the stage for a thoroughly entertaining program.
