2016 Karizma.

Below he narrates how he nearly got crushed onetime by a KDF combat vehicle...have a read...

"Just checking on my riding records and realized in 25 months (july 2019 to august 2021) i have done a total of 51,600kms on 3 bikes (2016 karizma, 2018 benelli 300 and 2019 benelli 300) and 3 helmets (aaron, yohe and ls2 breaker) .. not counting the june 2019 going back... i always take photos of my dashboard every time i do so.ething significant like a pretty long ride, bike service, replacement of a bike part or an incident that i need to remember.... 

2018 Benelli 300

In those months i have had 2 accidents both of them being july 2019 kenyatta avenue nairobi CBD, uber driver took a wrong lane at a round about on me and i went down avoiding a T-crash and september 2019 along kamiti road in zimmerman some driver decides to take an exit to the right when am halfway overtaking and swiped... both accidents were on karizma, very minimal scratches, broken side mirror, bruises here and there, bent pegs but no major issue, and both accidents i forgave them and went my way😔

2018 Benelli 300.

In the same period i have snapped throttle cable on karizma one time in karatina coming to nairobi at night, and it was horrible... i have snapped clutch cable on benelli in muranga but DIY replaced it and solved it. The same period karizma died on me in muranga and dumped it for 3 days in a hotel, i took bad fuel and bike decided to teach me a lesson on how to select fuel stations and same period somebody topped up my tank with diesel.. that day was long as hell😬🥺

2019 Benelli 300

Same period i have been dumped in trenches by evil drivers but managed to ride out without crashing about 4 times and one time it was a KDF vehicle that did that... meaning this september i should be celebrating 2 years of accident free rides 🙏

Armoured military vehicle.

In that same period i have been to most of rhe major towns in kenya from nairovi to eldoret to kericho to kisumu to nanyuki to kajiado to nakuru to narok to voi to mombasa, kilifi, malindi, nyeri, meru, kitui, makueni, machakos, nyahururu, rumuruti, muhoroni, muranga, whole of kiambu county, whole of laikipia county, kirinyaga i have been to the deepest, .. i have covered central kenys to rhe deepest, kirinyaga, eastern counties i have transversed all of them, coast i have been to quite a number of places several times, kajiado i have done towns to bushes, nairobi i have been to like 85% of it, same with kiambu, machakos, nyeri and muranga counties, nakuru county i have been to villages and towns, been to lakes and beaches mpaka dunga beach😁😁... 

Life on motorcycles has been awesome, and like 97% of the mileage has been solo rides from town to the bushes to the lakes, river crossings and getting lost a couple of times... i habe seen the good and ugly side of bikes while out there🤦

I have seen places with funny names like kwa musyoka, ichamara, ithe kahuno, ituramiro, mutwe wa thi, maundu ni meri, rwegetha, kenya israel 😂😂🤣🤣 

My plan for future with God's grace is to acquire a bigger capacity adventure bike and tour africa solo but that should be my life after 40th birthday"
