I just got back from country wide tour in Nigeria, covering over 3500km over a 6day (18-23 Dec) period on my Moto Guzzi Norge 1200. Chilling landscape and beautiful country side scenery. The Norge held up so well, made very good moments on the country roads, though lots of challenging road terrain and security stops. All the same we made it home together. So proud of her, people could not get their eyes of her, each time I stopped for a break. Just seeing I've two dents on my front wheel. Atleast I got home to know this.

Great photos. Sounds like an interesting ride, security stops aren't something we are used to in the UK!

The Norge is made for that sort of trip.
Hope you can get that front wheel sorted.
Brian.

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

@Brian...I definitely will get it sorted out after the holidays. Still surprise the air didn't leak out, because I know I really hit some crazy potholes along Eastern stretch of the country.

Very interesting and challenging...Guzzi pushed to the limit, yet delivered, so so proud.

Some pics:
