An epic motorcycle odyssey involving ancient British motorcycles with their even older riders (the bikes were about 50 years old and we won’t even talk about the riders’ ages!) as they travel half way round the world from Beijing in China to Arnhem in Holland over deserts with no roads, up the highest mountains and through the burning deserts!

The riders were Des Molloy on a 1966 Panther, together with Dick Huurdeman on an even more ancient Norton. Des relates the tale of their adventures and misadventures and shows a DVD of their travels across half the world.

Unusual, funny, inspiring and a testament to British engineering of long ago – an awesome evening out. Truly a motorcycling Odyssey.
