When civil unrest in Africa threw a monkey wrench in to Maurice McDonald’s plans to ride around the world in 2005, he had no choice but to end his trip and return to the UK. He still dreamt of completing the trip he started, so in 2018 he had a second go at it, despite having a life threatening disease that required him to keep his meds cold while travelling. Riding his 1994 Yamaha XTZ 750 Super Tenere he spent five months on the road, and at last reached the horizon he had aimed for in the first place.
