A rally raid that tests the limits of physical and mental strength, an exclusive for GIVI EXPLORER, as told by the only Italian participant: Laura Cola, the founder of the women’s motorcycle association “Donneinsella”.
Laura also took another record home. She was the first woman in 14 years to complete this “mission” on a motorcycle. A challenging goal considering the difficulties faced. Among the peculiarities of the Budapest Bamako is having to be totally self-sufficient and almost always sleeping in the bivouacs provided by the organisers. “You have to continuously refill on water and petrol, drive at night through a thousand dangers and sweat, or be cold, like on the first days, in your motorcycle gear”, says Laura, “all while dealing with the weight of luggage, jerry cans, a tent and spare parts”. We’ll let her tell the rest of the story herself.
