Richard Hammond has tried to ride the new Honda Africa Twin…

…but there is an obvious problem.

To be fair to the diminutive motorcycle and motoring journalist known affectionately as The Hamster, Steve from MF has had the same problem with the Africa Twin on the couple of weeks that he’s spent riding the machine.


He loves it though, despite his obvious shortcomings.

Richard Hammond of Top Gear and now The Grand Tour and Drive Tribe fame? Maybe not so much!

(Note: Drive Tribe haven’t seemed to allow ’embedding’ of videos from their site, so you’re going to have to click through to watch it… Sorry about that).
