Orags, smiling in the heat and shade, Log-O (his brother is backing us with green camelbak)
myself, Niger-ien border officer and Osa, this guy held us up for 4-5 hours! Our worst border crossing...
myself and Okiki... finally past the border into Niger and well on the way to Niamey, water stop every 100-150 miles was essential
Niamey - Hotel Tenere, myself with the Oragwu brothers, Log-O (Emeka) and Orags (Chinedu)
Ghana border - KK, Okiki, Ranti, Myself, Fotodadi, Orags and Fidelis
Out of order, but this is in Niger again, Ranti, Log-O, INyang, Fotodadi, Tonye, Okiki and Orags

this was on the second trip where I went solo from Port Harcourt , Nigeria to Accra, Ghana. I felt we moved too fast on the 6 country tour so I went back in May and did my own 3 country tour...
Leaving Lagos early morning on the way to Accra, Ghana..
Nigeria Bikers magazine launch, Michael's in VI, Lagos
Passing thru Lome on a quiet Sunday, on my solo trip to Accra
This was the rimming Nigeria trip in '08, I did not go but these are the hardcore, unknown chap, Master Inyang, Fotodadi, Osa and Orags
Another nice desert shot, u may wonder why all the gear, but in the desert you must cover every exposed part, and the visor is black.. once you get to 60km/hr the air flow keeps u ok and cool... plus the 3 liter camelbak
this is just after my spill climbing rocks, okiki, inyang, fotodadi, log-o, KK, ranti.. tonye and i squatting... busted my right turn signal but the aftermarket engine guard and skid plate saved any other damage.. we moved on
red thunder -- my Nigerian tags
At Michael's - Victoria Island, Lagos
wick shirts we had made for the trip
Calabar Bay, Nigeria -- Emeka (mean green machine) is in the background
