2019 - Now Excepting Nominations
EU BMW Donates Motorcycle to Uuzilo
EU BMW of Alexandria, VA., has donated a Kawasaki KLR650 to Uuzilo for use during expeditions in Africa. The generosity of owner, Khanh, and his uncle, Quan, ensures an Uuzilo motorcycle expedition will be possible in 2019. The KLR, a classic “thumper” and a favorite of Southern Africa, will require work in preparation for the bush. EU BMW has generously offered to get the bike desert-ready. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and working with them to refurbish the KLR for Africa.
While Khanh sorted the KLR’s paperwork amongst vintage rebuilds in his shop, Quan informed us he initially bought the bike to ride from London to Vietnam, their native country. When the trans-Eurasia trip fell through, Quan determined Uuzilo might put the Kawasaki to good use. We now hope Quan will join us (and the KLR) for a portion of our next journey in Africa.
