International motorcycle traveller Sam Manicom has navigated his way around the world on Avon Gripster tyres! The 50-year-old adventurer left home back in 1992 on a brand-new BMW R 80 GS with only three months experience of motorcycling under his belt. Since then he’s enjoyed adventures around the world, all of which are recounted in his books ‘Into Africa’, ‘Under Asian Skies’ and ‘Distant Suns.’

As a novice biker, Sam Manicom left his job and sold his house to ride a motorbike the length of Africa. But once the travel bug bit, he couldn’t stop. ‘Under Asian Skies’ is the sequel to his first book ‘Into Africa’, and just like that one this is packed with adventure. Sam narrowly escapes a serious wipeout in the vast Australian Outback, falls critically ill in Thailand and is rescued by a prostitute, gets arrested in Madras, dodges the manic traffic of India’s Grand Trunk Road and rides sheet ice on the road home through Turkey.
