Last week, I read a Quora thread about describing secrets of life in two words. Some said Self-determination or Free Choice while others added Welcome Change. For some of us who want to live to explore and not just survive, it would most probably be Road Trip and while some are still contemplating it, Samuel Felice and Ambroise Prince are living a dream life as they set their Django scooters unchained. The two riders, who are directors, cameramen as well editors, had a desire for such an adventure for a long time and their wish was fulfilled by Peugeot Django Adventure.
Peugeot Motocycles announced the India leg of the adventurous Paris-Saigon road trip which was flagged off on August 29, 2016 from France’s capital. The riders are riding the Peugeot Django 125cc scooters from Paris to Saigon. The ride is inspired by the saga of Serge Gracium and Michel Vaslin, two Petty Officers of the French Navy, who traveled from Saigon to Paris with their Peugeot Scooters S57 in 1956. After 60 years, the idea was to be re-enacted by this journey, but in the opposite direction.
The duo have crossed over 10 countries in the first leg of their road trip which ended in Europe. For the second round of their trip, they have arrived in India where they will commence the Asia leg. Surprisingly, the duo said that riding in Europe was difficult and they were relatively comfortable on Mumbai roads. But that was mainly because of the pace the vehicles keep on the European highways. Their rides are going strong as well and the two Django scooters have not suffered any major mechanical fault in the first leg.
The India leg starts from September 30th from Kolkata and will see the two brave men ride across the terrain of North East India to exit from Moreh in Manipur. The India leg will be across mountains and uncharted forests that will test the riding skills as well as the resolve of the Peugeot Scooters. Throughout the journey, these two friends would feed a virtual diary to share their incredible adventure and experience with the world. A dedicated blog and accounts on major social platforms (Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat), will further help the imagination of future adventurers. Additionally, they will be publishing photos, videos and exclusive content, to make one live the enthusiasm of this road trip.
