Hello and Welcome from An Idiot got Bored. The Slow way Down.
London to Johannesburg 25,000kms on a Suzuki 125 cc motorcycle!!! Departed from The Biker Store, Blindley Heath, on Saturday September 14th 2013, crossing at least 19 countries, mountain ranges, deserts and areas of severe famine and conflict. In total covering some 25,000 km.!!
This challenge will be undertaken solo and completely unsupported. Just me, a 125 cc bike and whatever I can carry on it.!!! I am doing this for our brave Service Men and Women, who have been wounded, often losing arms and legs. Can you imagine that?
LOOK FOR THE DONATE BUTTON. DONATE AMOUNT CAN BE CHANGED. A fiver a tenner, a thousand of the Queen's pounds or some land in St.Lucia, I don't mind it ALL counts :).
I shall be updating a blog at http://anidiotgotbored.blogspot.co.uk/ regularly during the challenge with details of the journey, media and sponsors (If you run a business and would like to be part of this challenge, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

About Help for Heroes
What is H4H all about? It's about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It's about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It's about Ben, it's about Steven and Andy and Mark, it's about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.
